>> and wn i woed h w absolutely impressed by the crowd and the reaction that he got. and i liked the way that he truly was giving a voice to people who felt forgotten. as i went through my years, i spent a huge amount of time on the east wing. and so, i was almost shielded sometimes from a lot of the toxic nature of the -- the west wing and the administration. when i went to the west wing is when i actually started to see what it was really like, and i regretted that decision immediately. >> you're likely to go down in history as the only white house press secretary who never held a press conference. did president trump order you not to hold briefings? >> yes, he said he didn't think we needed any more briefings. he spoke to the press two or three times a day directly. so then, my job was going to be to work more behind the scenes with print, with -- with regional and local. >> but you were talking about this cultural -- culture of casual dishonesty at the white house. so you were, as press secretary, even if you weren't getting briefings, enabling that culture, weren't you? >> yes. i now want to, in whatever way i can, educate the public about
1:44 am
the behaviors within the white house because it does look like he's going to try to run in 2024. >> you believe he will? >> i didn't at first, but i am starting to believe he will. i mean, he is clearly the front-runner in the republican party. everybody's showing their fealty to him. he's on his revenge tour for, you know, people who dared to vote for impeachment. and i want to just warn people that once he takes office, if he were to win, he doesn't have to worry about re-election anymore. he will be about revenge. he will probably have some pretty draconian policies that -- that go on. there were conversations a lot of times that people would say that'll be the second term. that'll be the second term. meaning, we won't have to worry about, you know, a re-election. >> you worked for the first lady, as well, her chief of staff. she's put out with a new statement overnight saying the author is desperately trying to rehabilitate her tarnished reputation by manipulating and distorting the truth about mrs. trump. ms. grisham is a deceitful and troubled individual who doesn't deserve anyone's trust. >> i -- i expected that. i expect more.
1:45 am
this is right out of their playbook. when they don't like the message, they're going to destroy the messenger. i know. i was part of doing that sometimes. so i don't -- i mean, i know that she's not denying anything fully in the book, just yet. i think she knows that i have a lot of receipts to show that, yeah, i'm being fully honest. so i -- i expected that. and i'm sure that there will be more to come. probably a lawsuit or two or three or four. >> was it a mistake to work for president trump? >> yes. >> why'd you do it? >> like i said, in the beginning, watching how people reacted to him and i do believe he gave voice to a lot of people who did feel forgotten. but i think that many of us, myself included, got into that white house and got heady with power. and became really -- we didn't think about serving the country anymore. it was about surviving in there. and i have no illusions right now that people are going to suddenly think i'm some hero. that's not what this is about. the left doesn't like me. the right doesn't like me. but i have gone back to basics and i have my family and i have my friends.
