A peaceful transfer of power is crucial for any Democracy. From Clinton to Bush to Obama to Trump and long before, the succession of power—especially between two opposing parties—is an American tradition.

But now, almost three years after our most recent transfer of power, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is claiming that Obama staffers made that transition quite bumpy.


Grisham claimed that outgoing Obama staffers left mean notes for incoming Trump staffers shortly after the President's inauguration.

In an interview with a Virginia radio station, Grisham claimed Obama staffers left notes reading "You will fail" and other taunting messages.

The Press Secretary said:

“We came into the WH, 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.’”

Now, prominent Obama officials are contesting her claim.

Some are even sharing the notes they left their own successors.

Grisham later responded, writing "I don't know why everyone is so sensitive!"

Though asserting she'd been honest, people were skeptical, because the Trump administration repeatedly dwells on the shortcomings of Obama's tenure in office.

It's strange at best that the White House would keep mum for three years at a chance to sully the Obama administration.

Stephanie Grisham has yet to give a once-daily White House press briefing.
