Brianna Keilar Desires Solutions: Tells Former Trump Comm Director, “That Doesn’t Fly”


The surprising, and but completely plausible, revelation from Mark Meadows’ guide, relating to the truth that Trump examined optimistic effectively earlier than the announcement, certainly three full days earlier than the primary debate, continues to reverberate all through the nation. The nation is used to studying of Trump administration lies, each earlier than and after the very fact, this one goes somewhat deeper.

This lie may need impacted nationwide safety and recklessly put what needed to be lots of of individuals in danger.

This morning’s CNN episode of New Day devoted a phase to the subject, wherein they interviewed Trump’s Communication’s Director on the time, Alysa Farah-Griffin.

As she is understood to do, Brianna Keilar requested a tricky, straight, query that allowed for no wiggle room. What did Griffin learn about Trump’s well being on the time and much more typically, proper now?

Farah-Griffin, in fact, answered with a non-answer: “I can’t reveal that presently. The docs want to maintain it personal. My understanding is that it’s simply personal medical historical past”

CNN performed a clip wherein Farah=Griffin obfuscated on the time

“Okay say so, Alysa? That doesn’t fly. So inform us what’s taking place there.”

Considerably outrageously, Farah-Griffin answered in a approach that made her sound like a hero, speaking in regards to the questions she received from among the main reporters on the time and taking the reporters’ facet; “They needed a timeline, which to me appeared completely affordable,”

Had the White Home launched a timeline after Trump’s announcement it may need sunk all possibilities of a Trump victory one month earlier than the election. However she continued;

“I went to the chief of employees and to his physician and stated ‘we’re being bombarded by requests for the timeline. They stated that’s his personal medical information. That was my chain of command.” 

As if that weren’t sufficient, she added; “On reflection, it completely is sensible why I used to be instructed that, as a result of they had been hiding a false optimistic. Most of us had no concept.”

Umm, there’s a slight contradiction in her two solutions. She stated she needed them to disclose a timeline, however it solely now is sensible? And, it’s a bit laborious to imagine that there have been later destructive checks (although it may possibly’t be confirmed by the media) as a result of the timeline matches so completely as to when he was at his sickest.

David Gregory, additionally on the panel, lit Farah-Griffin up:

“It’s additionally absurd in fact as a result of he’s the president of the US,.

“All of the privateness about his well being, it will be important that our commander in chief … he might match into the wealthy historical past of different presidents who lied about medical illnesses. He’s the president throughout a pandemic, and isn’t telling the reality about testing optimistic.”

Farah-Griffin jumped in, once more – to be one of many good guys;

“I made that time. I pushed again and stated that is within the curiosity of public well being, it’s of significant public curiosity. It is a 74-year-old commander in chief. His well being issues.”

That there was a false optimistic?

That reply is the least plausible in your complete interview. From what we all know of the Trump administration, Trump made the selections, not the employees, not the docs, not the communication director, or anybody underneath her on the time. Anybody who “fought again” risked being terminated by the tip of the day. After all, we can’t completely rule out that she’s telling the reality, however it simply doesn’t sound like one thing that may occur in that White Home.

However it’s not the one factor that doesn’t make sense with respect to her solutions or what the White Home needed to be doing on the time. It will be nearly not possible for the individuals in shut proximity to Trump to not know that one thing crucial was completely different and it needed to contain his well being. The few individuals round Trump, and Trump himself, would fairly all of a sudden be appearing very otherwise than something she had been used to.

We can’t know. However the story that makes way more sense is that she knew, was instructed to lie, and why. It will be irresponsible to not acknowledge that if Farah-Griffin got here proper out and stated, “I used to be instructed to lie,” she could be banished from Trump World altogether and her profession in conservative politics, for the close to time period at a minimal, could be over.
