​Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said on Thursday that Donald Trump watched the Capitol riot unfold “gleefully” on January 6, proudly rewinding footage of the insurrection on his television. “All I know about that day was that he was in the dining room, gleefully watching on his TV as he often did, ‘look at all of the people fighting for me,’ hitting rewind, watching it again — that’s what I know,” Grisham told CNN’s “New Day.” Her remarks, made on the anniversary of the riot, align with past reports about Trump apparently glued to the TV screen as the riot played out. Last year, Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig said in a CNN interview that the president was in the dining room of the Oval Office” during the insurrection, “watching it and almost giddy.”
