We’re seeing that Pentagon spokesperson Alyssa Farah is being considered as a replacement as is Kayleigh McEnany from the campaign:
Sources say Trump is considering adding current DoD spox Alyssa Farah to the WH comms team & also considering having Kayleigh McEnany transition from the campaign to the White House. No final decisions have been made. https://t.co/3hPTFLxg0n

Stephanie Grisham, who became the White House press secretary in June 2019, is now leaving that role without ever holding a press briefing https://t.co/4hpJsGCKAD

Got that? President Trump gives too many briefings but she doesn’t give any:
Everyone seems upset that Stephanie Grisham never briefed the press. But everyone also seems upset that Trump is briefing the press every single day. So make up your minds, people.

Exit question: If the new WH press secretary starts briefing the press every day, will CNN ever cover it?
CNN is at the same time refusing to carry press conferences with the President https://t.co/BMAh0Aj2vV
