Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany now has a gig at Fox News, but she hasn’t gotten any better at actually informing people than when she was a member of the Trump administration, which was known to traffic in conspiracy theories, half-truths, and outright lies.
McEnany was discussing a new book and TV show from Hillary Clinton, and she suggested that Clinton may run for president again in 2024, but her reasoning sounded more like it could be applied to ex-president Donald Trump:
“If there’s anyone that we can say, ‘megalomaniac, addicted to power, thinks she should’ve been president, still essentially hasn’t conceded the election, and wants to be president again,’ it would be this woman. It would be Hillary Clinton.”

First off, a couple of things:
- Clinton wasn’t elected in 2016, so how can she be president “again”?
- Hillary did indeed concede the election and she didn’t urge her supporters to march on the Capitol and attack police officers defending the seat of government.
Now, consider who is more of a megalomaniac, Clinton or Trump? Who thinks they should still be president and has steadfastly refused to concede? That would also be Donald Trump.
Amazing how McEnany managed to troll her former boss with her pathetic attack on Hillary, isn’t it? But that’s what happens when you’re in a cult: You lose all perspective and the ability to think rationally.
It didn’t take long before Twitter users pointed out some of the flaws in McEnany’s latest nonsensical conspiracy theory.
Why are you being critical of Donald, she’s just as bad as Donald…
look at her, is it him or is it her? it’s her isn’t it? 🙄

Does she think we forgot who she worked for, and we don’t remember anything?

You know Fox is running out of effective ammo when it’s time to vilify a woman who hasn’t held public office since 2013.
