House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., shot again after former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham claimed that Melania Trump refused to go to Scalise within the hospital after he had gotten shot at a observe for the Congressional Baseball Game in 2017. 

In her guide “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” Grisham wrote that the primary woman’s employees requested her if she needed to go to the Scalises, who had gathered within the Blue Room on the White House, and he or she declined, in line with a report from Business Insider.

“Her response was, ‘No, I already said hello,'” Grisham wrote. Melania Trump had been referring to the time that she and then-President Donald Trump visited Scalise on the hospital whereas he recovered from the capturing. According to the guide, the primary woman’s response grew to become a working joke within the East Wing.


Scalise condemned the declare in no unsure phrases.

“This is how the fake news media machine against President Trump and [Melania] works. This never happened,” the congressman claimed. “My family went to visit the White House while I was still in the hospital and were graciously given a tour by President and Mrs. Trump.”

He condemned the declare as “another pathetic attempt by a disgraced former staffer to tell lies in order to sell books. If her publisher or a single outlet covering this story had done any fact-checking, they would’ve learned it was fake. But they didn’t because it fits their fake narrative.”

“The fact they need to stoop so low to make up verifiably false stories about a shooting victim and his family to paint a false picture of the Trumps tells you everything you need to know about their credibility,” Scalise concluded.

Grisham stood by her declare in a press release to Fox News on Monday.

“I respect Steve Scalise and wouldn’t expect he’d know about a conversation that he was not party to,” she stated in a textual content message.

“Perhaps he is conflating two separate events. Mrs. Trump chose not to greet him in the Blue Room after he was discharged form the hospital even though she was just upstairs. I found this to be disrespectful to Congressman Scalise and his family – his tweet does not contradict what I wrote in my book,” Grisham responded.

Scalise wrote his personal guide about what he known as “miraculous” events that enabled him to outlive life-threatening accidents he sustained within the June 14, 2017 capturing. While his wounds didn’t seem severe to an untrained eye, certainly one of his fellow Congressmen had seen related wounds in Abu Ghraib and knew to alert the medics to the seriousness of Scalise’s situation, for instance.

“This book has been me trying to show you how many miracles had to happen for me to have this second chance and how many people played parts in those miracles,” he wrote on the time.

Then-President Trump and Melania Trump visited Scalise within the hospital the exact same day of the capturing.
