Memoir: Melania Trump’s Staffer Was Fired for Using Grindr


A newly-released memoir from a former White House aide claims Melania Trump’s office terminated a gay staffer after finding his Grindr account during a security screening.

Business Insider reports that former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham learned that an unnamed staffer within the Trump administration was allegedly let go in 2018 after officials discovered he was on the LGBTQ dating app Grindr. In the book, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in the Trump White House,” Grisham sheds light on her experiences and the issues others faced during the Trump era.

“Whoever determined security clearances had come across his Grindr account and decided that some of the stuff on it would be ‘personally embarrassing’ to Mrs. Trump,” wrote Grisham in her book.
