Obama Staffers Deny Stephanie Grisham’s ‘Outrageous Lie’ That They Left Trump ‘You Will Fail’ Notes

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham has claimed that staff in the Obama White House left notes saying the Trump administration would fail. Grisham has said that notes were in books all over the White House. However, Obam staffers have denied this.

“We came into the White House, I’ll tell you something. Every office was filled with Obama books and we had notes left behind that said ‘you will fail,’ ‘you aren’t going to make it,’” Grisham said.

Her claim is odd, coming as it does almost three years after Donald Trump became president.

Grisham’s claim was quickly denied by those who actually worked in the Obama White House, with some saying they left encouraging notes for their successors.

One former official called the claim an ‘outrageous lie’.

Many others weighed in on Twitter, including former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean.

Grisham’s claim is very similar to a story about Bill Clinton’s staff sticking down all the ‘W’ keys on White House computers following George W. Bush’s surprise electoral victory.
