Kellyanne Conway is the biggest Hatch Act offender, but more than a dozen other Trump administration officials are accused of breaking the federal law.
As spokeswoman for the first lady, Grisham was a loyal defender of Melania Trump.
"It is absurd that this happened," one former member of the White House Correspondents' Association told Newsweek about the planned gathering.
"At this time we're not going to take any questions, but we're hoping to come back to you guys with some more information later today," the chief Pentagon spokesman said.
Stephanie Grisham came out ahead of other current and former administration officials and TV commentators supposedly being considered for White House press secretary.
"I'm a little surprised that this came out of Axelrod," Huckabee said. "He's a better person than that."
The pursuit of the truth seemed to be subordinate to the objectives of a few members of the media, who provided ample fodder for the president's constant criticisms of "fake news."
"She did a great job. I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her," Scaramucci said during an appearance on CNN's New Day.
"She was even caught red-handed by Robert Mueller himself," the host said.
"She should have done the right thing a long time ago," Ryan said. "The reason why I say that is because she suffers from 'lie-abetes.' And her tenure has been fraught with sex, lies and videotape."
"By the end she wasn't really a press secretary," a reporter opined. "She was a top adviser who Trump consulted on just about everything."
"After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas," Trump tweeted.
"I'm sorry?" Sanders said when asked if Trump told aides to deny he trailed Biden in polls. "Again, I'm not worried about polling."
"I can tell you we're monitoring the situation and continue to stay focused on our ultimate goal which is denuclearization," the White House press secretary said.
"After two years, the Special Counsel is moving on with his life," Sanders' statement read. "And everyone else should do the same."
Trump fired back at Tillerson Thursday after the former secretary of state reportedly criticized the president's preparations for a meeting with Vladimir Putin.
"It turns out we have more than enough (supporters) to keep us cooking," Red Hen co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson wrote.
"Democrats only disgrace and humiliate themselves with their baseless attacks on such a fine public servant," Sanders tweeted.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders pushed back against such criticism, saying President Donald Trump "has condemned not only this act, but all acts of evil and hatred and racism and bigotry."
The White House Correspondents' Association promotes "excellence in journalism" to ensure "robust news coverage of the president and the presidency."
"Sarah, when will you brief for the real reporters?" a reporter asked the press secretary, who did not answer. She has not held a real press briefing in 45 days.
"Never had somebody say that I should be decapitated," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in response to the CNN's analyst's remarks.
This war of words all stems from CNN political analyst April Ryan use of an execution metaphor to discuss firings in the White House's press office.
"Look, I acknowledge that I had a slip of the tongue when I used the word 'countless,' but it's not untrue," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
"Sanders told this Office [of the special counsel] that her reference to hearing from 'countless members of the FBI' was a 'slip of the tongue,'" investigators wrote in the Mueller report.
"How about sending us the tax returns of @POTUS as required by law," Rep. Ted Lieu tweeted. "If we are not smart enough to understand them, we will send them back. Pinky promise."
"The president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals into their communities, so let's see if it works and everyone gets a win out of it," the White House press secretary said.
"Democrats continue to show day in and day out that they're nothing but sore losers," Sanders said.
Despite touting the GOP as "the party of health care," the White House press secretary is the latest Trump administration official unable to outline an alternative to the Affordable Care Act.
