Reporters are praising new White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham after she got into a scuffle with North Korean guards trying to block reporters from President Trump and Kim Jong-un.

A clip of Grisham’s Sunday scuffle played on TVs in White House workspaces on Monday morning as journalists who were there relayed the experience to colleagues, recalling that North Korean guards hadn’t screened the group that Grisham dramatically escorted.
Impressed White House journalists asked one another throughout the day, “Have you seen the video of Stephanie?” One veteran correspondent said it would significantly boost her standing among reporters.
Olivier Knox, the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, expressed gratitude, saying in a statement, “I’m sorry for any bumps or bruises, but very grateful to Stephanie for her intervention on behalf of the U.S. press corps.”
Although some journalists described Grisham as “bruised,” the extent of her injuries, if any, were unclear as the White House declined to comment on the record Monday, in an apparent effort to downplay the story.
I’m sure this goodwill is going to come to an end but it is nice to see people giving her credit.
Sadly, many leftists on Twitter were claiming this was all for show and for propaganda.
