The new White House press secretary earned some well-deserved props from members of the press after she pushed aside North Korean guards to allow press corps members into the historic meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Moments before the meeting between the two leaders on Sunday, the North Korean guards blocking the way of journalists attempting to cover the meeting were pushed out of the way by White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who reportedly sustained bruises from the confrontation.

Check it out:

The new press secretary shouted “Go, go!” to the press corps members as they ran through the opening she created.

The move earned Grisham — who replaced former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders right before the trip to North Korea and the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan — some respect from members of the press, who lauded the strong-arming press secretary’s dedication to giving journalists access to the meeting.

Annie Karni of the New York Times said that Grisham’s approach to the job “stands in stark contrast” to how former Press Secretary Sean Spicer started out in the gig.

White House bureau chief of The Voice of America Steve Herman called Grisham’s “initiation” into the role “rough but heroic.”

ABC’s Jonathan Karl pointed out that the new White House press secretary was “not having it” with the guards’ attempt to lock out the press corps.

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper — a regular critic of the president — emoji-applauded the move by Grisham on Twitter.

The White House Correspondents’ Association president Oliver Knox lauded Grisham’s actions as well, saying that he was “very grateful” to the press secretary for her “intervention on behalf of the U.S. press corps” and that he was sorry for “any bumps or bruises” she sustained.

Don’t worry – I’m sure they’ll hate her soon enough. Maybe they should understand she’s not going to take their garbage either. She’s going to do her job.

Let’s put it this way…if I may…about the NK guards: It’s one thing to look tough in NK…with the NK people…while it is a completely different set of circumstances to look tough for “photo opt” while involved with someone being part of the most powerful nation in the world!!

That is definitely the right kind of person for this Administration!! I happen to have a partner in crime for the last 46 going on 47 years that happens to make my life exciting by keeping me on my toes (boy…these toes are kind of getting worn out by now) about anything and everything…including trying to make me understand that “Men are from Mars and Women “arrrrr” from Venus!!
