Steve Scalise drops truth bomb on phony story from Grisham’s book about Melania and his family

Business Insider relayed a story from Stephanie Grisham’s book yesterday regarding how Melania refused to meet with Steve Scalise and his family after they came to the White House:

A new book says Melania Trump refused to meet with Republican Rep. Steve Scalise at the White House after he was shot in 2017 at a congressional baseball practice.

Insider obtained a copy of the coming book by Stephanie Grisham, the former White House press secretary who also served as the first lady’s chief of staff. She wrote that Scalise and his family had gone to the White House for an unscheduled visit shortly after Scalise had recovered from the shooting.

Grisham wrote that Trump’s staff asked her whether Melania wanted to visit the Scalises, who Grisham said were gathered in the Blue Room, and that Melania declined.

“Her response was, ‘No, I already said hello,'” Grisham wrote. Trump was apparently referring to when she and President Donald Trump visited Scalise at the hospital as he was recovering from the shooting. Grisham’s book indicates Melania Trump’s response became a running joke in the East Wing.

“Whenever the first lady said no to something, we would say to each other, ‘Well, she already said hello!'” Grisham wrote.

Steve Scalise responded to this story from Grisham’s book, saying it never happened and explained why:

Just like all the others, Grisham is making up lies in order to sell books and try and destroy the Trumps.

In fact she just told CNN today that she probably lied when she was on Fox News doing interviews:

Yep, she’s as credible as a Nigerian asking for your banking information to send you millions of dollars.
