White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany though she’d weigh in with her thoughts about this being the day the nation honors the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but she probably wishes she’d remained silent based on the responses she received to her tweet.
Here’s what McEnany posted Monday morning:
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. left a legacy of faith, love, and equality.
He made America better.
He was a true servant of Christ.
Today, we honor him!

Some were supportive of McEnany’s tweet, but others lit into her with furious criticism:
How dare you invoke his name.

It’s especially offensive when people who would vilify MLK today use the opportunity to make themselves feel righteous once a year. I’d rather you say NOTHING at all. For once in your life.

Definition of: ‘hypocrite’ is: ‘a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.’

Why can’t you just go away in silence?

And you chose to honor that legacy by being the mouthpiece for a man who (among other terrible things) just tried to overthrow an election by invalidating millions of votes cast by black & brown folks. Tell me more about how you honor King and his legacy…

Girl PLEASE! Today is NOT the day!
How dare YOU of all people?
Just don’t dishonor Dr. King with your hypocrisy. Not today! Not any day!
STAY IN YOUR LANE

Kayleigh really needs to sit down, shut up, and try to repent for the evil she’s done.
