Press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Saturday argued it was “dangerous for the country” for anyone to challenge the veracity of her claims.
Grisham made her argument after President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed Hospital for an unannounced doctor’s visit, resulting in a great deal of speculation.
Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was “healthy” and “without complaints” — a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.
“Further speculation beyond the extensive & honest info I put out is wholly irresponsible & dangerous for the country,” Grisham argued.
Here is some of the speculation that may have raised Grisham’s ire:
Now @NoahGrayCNN reports: Trump's trip to Walter Reed "was not on his schedule as of Friday, a source familiar with the matter told CNN." As of Saturday A.M., the source added, the visit was not on Trump's internal schedule. W.H. declined to comment on when it was scheduled (2/2)

This does not add up; the White House Medical Unit has very comprehensive facilities at the White House complex that could easily accommodate most of what is needed in an annual physical. As a fmr USSS Agent assigned POTUS, I have never seen the annual formality occur in stages. https://t.co/32KGdf8yXR

Does Trump's unscheduled visit to Walter Reed, on a Saturday no less, suggest that someone is laying the groundwork to resign due to health concerns?

“Without complaints?” Can you remember a day that went by without Trump havin’ a complaint? https://t.co/I8gAvlnUrQ

Well this gets curiouser & curiouser..🤔🤔🤔
Let's show Trump the same empathy he showed Senator Sanders. None & then insult.

The waiting times are a bitch. Seems that Trump spent 2 hours at Walter Reed. We all know medical tests take like 5 to 10 minutes per test. But when you're POTUS at Walter Reed, you have to wait in line like any old schmuck. Certainly no reason to think Trump had 20 tests done…

I'm not saying Trump's visit to Walter Reed is suspicious, but members of his cabinet are in the War Room right now watching the movie "Dave" with Kevin Kline.

In other words, Trump’s visit to Walter Reed today was likely an emergency or af the very least urgent. And now we’re being lied to, again. https://t.co/rj2Rl5pyf4

Visited a great family of a young man under major surgery at the amazing Walter Reed Medical Center. Those are truly some of the best doctors anywhere in the world. Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year.

Wouldn’t shock me at all if events prove @CheriJacobus 100% correct here, nor would it shock me to see the Pence/Haley 2020 ticket rolled out the day after Trump’s cowardly resignation. https://t.co/p2xC3DpuN5
