Stephanie Grisham is stepping down as White House press secretary without ever briefing the press from the podium.

And the latest reshuffling of a communications office that has seen high turnover, with McEnany becoming the fourth person to hold the press secretary position.

Grisham took over from Sarah Sanders as press secretary last June ..

Sean Spicer was his Trump's first press secretary.

But unlike her predecessors, Grisham did not hold press briefings, at the president's direction, however, she did make multiple appearances on Fox News.
