When Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany goes to the podium to hold a press briefing, she’s supposed to clean up his messes, and spin the media narrative in his favor. When she says something that makes Trump’s controversies even more controversial, it means she’s failed. Today she failed.
When Kayleigh McEnany was discussing the question of whether to reopen schools, she said this: “The science should not stand in the way of this.” No really, she said this, on live national television. This is the general message that Donald Trump and his regime have been implying all along. But when you’re pushing total BS, the point is to keep it convoluted enough that your detractors can’t simply point to something as dumb as “The science should not stand in the way of this” because then they can pick it apart.
The bottom line: Kayleigh McEnany is probably the most sociopathically deranged press secretary that Donald Trump has had yet – but even from a villain standpoint, she’s not particularly good at this.
