(Tea Party PAC) – It has been an awesome week for President Donald Trump and everyone who supports him.
Which means it’s been a terrible week for the Democrats and their stenographers in the media!
The Sunday morning show lineup is mysteriously devoid of any White House officials, despite the fact that it’s been quite a busy week for the White House.
Grisham explained on Hannity on Friday night that the White House reached out to the shows, but were turned down by every single one.
The original Sunday shows line-up via the Associated Press published Friday:
ABC’s “This Week” — Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Buttigieg; Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Buttigieg, Sanders; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; China’s ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai.
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Buttigieg, Sanders; Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.
“Fox News Sunday” — Buttigieg.
According to The Washington Examiner, ABC’s This Week has former Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock booked, while Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures will talk with Trump private attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

“I have got to tell you there is not going to be one White House official on any of the Sunday shows this weekend. Only Fox Business is taking a White House official to talk about what an amazing week this president has had, and I do find that timing very, very suspect,” Grisham explained to Hannity.
“…It’s not that they didn’t invite us, it’s that they turned us down. We offered up senior White House officials to every Sunday show and they turned us down and even canceled, uh, your own network canceled me. So, not one Sunday show, uh, is going to have us on aside from Fox Business.
The Examiner reported that CNN and CBS refuted Grisham’s claim, however.
“Representatives from both CNN’s State of the Union and CBS’s Face the Nation refuted Grisham’s claims that they turned down an appearance from a White House official. A Fox News spokesperson also pointed out that Grisham inaccurately said Fox Business was the only network to accept a White House spokesperson because they do not have a Sunday talk show.”
FNC’s Sunday Morning Futures is hosted by Maria Bartiromo, who is normally a host on Fox Business, so this is an honest mistake.
CNN’s Jake Tapper called Grisham a liar, then invited her on his Sunday show, State of the Union.
