Default Ex-White House stenographer: Trump is ‘lying to the American people’

Quote:
A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration's lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position.

Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN's New Day on Wednesday that Trump's refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line.
http://thehill.com/homenews/administ...merican-people
"I quit because I couldn't be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ... not even trying to tell the truth. He wasn't even going the extra mile to have the stenographers in the room"

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Dorey-Stein added that Trump's dislike for microphones "near his face" resulted in her office having less access to the Oval Office, in many cases resulting in no stenographer being present for press conferences or meetings.

"In my five years with President Barack Obama, off-the-record discussions with reporters happened after work hours — not for an hour in the middle of the work day, and certainly not before an interview," she said, speaking of Trump's off-the-record conversation with former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.

"Mr. Trump likes to call anyone who disagrees with him 'fake news.' But if he’s really the victim of so much inaccurate reporting, why is he so averse to having the facts recorded and transcribed?"

Dorey-Stein chalked up Trump's hesitation to utilize the stenographer's office to his administration's unwillingness to adequately learn about the position during the transition period last year, as well as the Trump team's lack of contact with Obama staffers during the move.

"Perhaps he didn’t fully understand the role of the stenographer. That would make sense, since his administration had rebuffed every invitation from the Obama transition team during an inherently stressful time, including to learn how to keep the lights on," she wrote.

Trump was heavily criticized in British media after he gave an interview last week to the tabloid The Sun during his four-day stay in the United Kingdom, an interview that Trump later criticized as "fake news" after his remarks aimed at British Prime Minister Theresa May were widely reported.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later clarified his remarks in a statement to The Hill.

“As he said in his interview with the Sun [May] ‘is a very good person’ and he ‘never said anything bad about her,’” Sanders said in a statement to The Hill. “He thought she was great on NATO today and is a really terrific person."

“He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K.”
easy way to tell trump is lying.
he's talking.

Just who is Beck Dorey-Stein?

‘President Obama is sitting not even four feet away’: my life working in the White House

Quote:
Despite having little interest in politics and even less in joining the DC “ego-swamp”, Dorey-Stein had quietly admired Obama since her teens. He influenced her original career choice when he gave the commencement speech to her graduating class at Wesleyan University in 2008. Having listened to him encouraging them to “give back”, she decided to go into teaching instead of advertising and worked for two years as an English teacher in New Jersey, and then Seoul.

....Before long, Dorey-Stein was working out regularly alongside Obama. “It’s weird how normal it is to say hi to the president in the gym now,” she writes. Even so, she remained starstruck by him till the end. Her memoir is in many ways a love letter to him and what he stands for. On her way to the White House on her first day, she worried he might be “a politician who comes across great on TV yet is quite greasy in person. But actually he is so much better in real life. He is warmer, even more kind, even funnier. He has this reputation that he is aloof and it just isn’t true at all.”

....On a flight to Seattle for a Democratic party fundraiser, Dorey-Stein met one of her heroes: David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker.
Now here's the kicker...Pay close attention...

Quote:
After swapping duties with a colleague to avoid recording Donald Trump’s first meeting with Obama at the Oval Office – “I could not stomach the reality of what was happening” – it took just one day working in the new president’s White House to convince her she needed an exit strategy.
She wanted out because her Messiah was leaving and she was a Trump-hater from DAY ONE....

Let's look at the first sentence of the article in the OP again...

Bull...f**king...sh*t...

She was planning her resignation the SECOND Trump first walked in...She reminds me of the immature a-holes who stole the "W"s from White House keyboards when GWB was elected...An unprofessional worker who feels the need to throw a tantrum because her hate...and she KNOWS it will sell and the saltwn's of the world will lap it up and beg for more...

So she stepped up and became her dream job and because she saw the handwriting on the wall you complain she's not genuine? Right now there are conservative career workers who are quitting over trump's treasonous behavior at the public spectacle with putin and many more weighing their options. Gowdy is one who although still popular in his district is cashing it in and going back to private practice. I don't blame him not wanting his reputation as a prosecutor further diminished by republican hacks who want to parade him out there to ask the 'tough' questions. sadly for them gowdy is something of a constitutionalist not prone to making sh*t up and manufacturing further charges on clearly innocent defendants.

I really need to pay more attention to the threads before I enter. I am finding that the threads started by Salty are generally less than useless.

There are lots of worshipers of the Messiah who were visibly upset when Hillary lost. This low level stenographer is just one of them. Nothing to see here.

MS Stein's sole evidence of lying is....;Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ... not even trying to tell the truth. He wasn't even going the extra mile to have the stenographers in the room"


That's it??????

This President not only promised to be more visible to the public, for the first time in decades, we have a President who gives us damn near a blow by blow of what he is thinking, what he plans to do and how. By any measure he has been the most transparent.

We hear complaints that he tweets. It puts his opponents off guard. Imagine the secret scenarios invented by his detractors if he didn't.


With no facts to support her Feelings we are supposed to take Ms Stein seriously? After one day? Thus, making this pathetic Obama worshiping Clintonite the liar. But what she said aligns with Salty's politics de jur so it is important we get that insight. For our better good, right?.

Like I said, I should just skipped over Salty threads as they are generally very low on intelligent information, just left wing hysteria.
