Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany continued lying about President Joe Biden on Thursday by blaming him for the increased murder rate in 2020 when Donald Trump was still in office.
McEnany never told the truth during her time as Trump’s press secretary, and she hasn’t told the truth about Biden since leaving the White House in disgrace.
In yet another false attack on Biden, McEnany pointed to a chart on Twitter and claimed that he is to blame for the 2020 murder rate, only to delete the post upon realizing that her former boss was actually president at the time. Then she doubled down on the same chart and added Democratic mayors to the list of those she blames.
From the White House podium in August 2020, I warned Defund would result in rising crime.
Sadly, I was right.
Biden you enabled this.
Defund, Democrat mayors, you own this!

Again, the 30 percent increase in homicides in 2020 occurred under Trump’s watch. Biden did not become president until January 2021. Furthermore, the murder rate has actually dropped this year. And McEnany’s claim that Democrats are defunding the police is also a lie. In fact, Republicans are the ones who voted to block legislation that would have provided funding to police departments across the nation.
Twitter users humiliated McEnany.
Trump was president in 2020 and you were the WH spokesperson.

Omg. You deleted the first tweet and you brought it back! Exactly which President do you think was in charge in 2020?

When she thought Biden was president it was his fault.. but then when she realized he was not president at the time it is now the Democratic mayors’ fault and definitely not the previous president 🤦

Haha wow I love how Republicans are still trying to say democrats defund the police but in reality every Republican voted no on the American rescue plan that allocated funds to police departments… So who really wants to defund the police?????

What happens when you don’t read the story first – wow are you bad at this – “Murder Rose by Almost 30% in 2020. It’s Rising at a Slower Rate in 2021. The increase in U.S. murders this summer does not appear to be as large as the record spike last summer.” pic.twitter.com/7h3w3PoeuE

There need to be serious consequences for serial liars like McEnany.
