New White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham got into a fight — literally with North Korea security guards at the DMZ earlier this morning as they tried to prevent members of the U.S. media from covering the event. That’s right. The White House press secretary got bruised up in order to make sure the press could cover this historic event:
New WH Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham got into a scuffle with the North Koreans to move members of the WH press pool into position to cover Trump and Kim, I’m told. Grisham was a bit bruised. Source called it “an all out brawl.”

It’s going to be great at the next White House Correspondents’ Association dinner when they give her an award:
