Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House press secretary in the Trump administration, set off waves of laughter and head shaking with remarks she made Tuesday regarding President Joe Biden and his administration.
Appearing on Fox News to discuss recent polling showing a drop in Biden’s approval rating, the situation in Afghanistan, and increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the U.S., McEnany thought she’d engage in some big time historical revisionism, declaring:
“We are eight months into a Biden presidency. Wrap your head around that. We still have three years and four months left.
“Look, when President Trump was president, you didn’t see crisis after crisis. You just didn’t see it.
“I shudder to think about what COVID would have been like under Joe Biden.”

What?! How conveniently Ms. McEnany forgot the endless cycle of crisis that existed when Trump was still president. For example:
- 400,000 Americans dead from coronavirus on Trump’s watch, as he dithered and urged Americans to inject disinfectant to counter the disease
- An attempt by Trump to extort Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden
- Being impeached not once, but TWICE
- Urging thousands of his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Fortunately, plenty of people were more than eager to refresh Kayleigh’s memory and give her a harsh dose of reality and truth:
You’re right Kayleigh,
It was just a 4 year train wreck followed by a coup attempt. https://t.co/i9o4o0SmPo

She’s kinda right in the sense that it was more like one giant, crushing, all-encompassing crisis where it was impossible to tell where one ended and the next one began. https://t.co/gDL7LYgJku

Since Biden was elected I don’t have to check Twitter first thing in the morning to see if he’s started WW 3 with tweets

Well, to be fair- it really was more of one continuous, rolling, never ending crisis, which just fed into the next one & then the next & the next…
You didn’t see one after the other because they all melded together into one conglomerate ooze of incompetence, evil, awful and sad. pic.twitter.com/qAwBUVgq1s

Sorry, Kayleigh, but your version of “reality” is a steaming heap of dung.
