Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 18, 2018

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.

"I quit because I couldn't be proud of where I worked anymore," says Beck Dorey-Stein, former WH stenographer: "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people ... 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.

Trump is someone who hates to be reminded of what he's actually said.... you know, as if what he's actually said matters after about 30 seconds. Con men are like that.

"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?

President Trump did criticize Theresa May to The Sun. We know because it was recorded.

It's clear that White House stenographers do not serve his administration, but rather his adversary: the truth."

Deleting records and preventing them from being made should be impeachable.

Considering there are laws regarding Presidential record keeping, breaking them seems to qualify as high crimes or misdemeanors.

But the GOP is spineless and only concerned with party over country so nothing will happen.

"Trump treating a subordinate poorly? Color me shocked."

He wasn't just treating a subordinate poorly, he has been treating the citizens of the United States poorly. His meeting with Putin without a record was the most untransparent summit meeting in history. The people of the United States have a right to know what our leaders agree to without our knowledge unless we are at war and it affects national security.

Trump apologist who will defend him no matter what he does makes a fool of himself again. Big surprise.

Trump doesn't believe he works for the American people

Trump believes the American people work for him.

Your shock should be levied at the POTUS breaking the law (if it's true POTUS is required to use stenographer by law, of course, to which I'm not exactly sure, but sounds plausible enough).
