  • Press Briefing by Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany | 6/19/2020, #15

    06/19/2020 5:15:24 PM PDT · by ransomnote ^ | June 19, 2020 | White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany
    James S. Brady Press Briefing Room 1:34 P.M. EDTMS. MCENANY:  Good afternoon everyone.  The great American comeback is underway.  Just before joining you all, we learned from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that unemployment has fallen in 43 states in May, as Americans are going back to work.Also, I would like to reemphasize the numbers that Director of the NEC Larry Kudlow shared with you all yesterday that the CBO predicted that, in the third quarter, we will get plus-20 percent GDP.  They’ve predicted in Q4, we will be at plus-20 percent GDP.  And top economist Ed Hyman says...
  • Trump's press secretary smacks down a stupid liberal question about COVID-19 deaths

    Kayleigh McEnany's White House press briefings instantly became must-watch TV when she first took the podium on May 1. You need only watch one to see why, and it's not because of her looks. Or at least not entirely. The one on Tuesday, May 26, was particularly entertaining, first as a display of a certain kind of journalism and second as show of how faulty data can still have their uses. The fireworks began when Ryan Lizza had his chance to pop a question. Lizza is a decent representative of the type. Since graduating from U.C. Berkeley in the mid-1990s,...
  • 'Glorious': Kayleigh McEnany receives praise as White House press secretary

    Washington Times ^ | Thursday, May 28, 2020 | By Jennifer Harper
    She has been on the job since April 7. That would be Kayleigh McEnany age 32 and the 31st White House press secretary who took charge of this challenge in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, and as the news media directed unprecedented and intense hostility toward President Trump. Is Kayleigh McEnany the best press secretary in history? I think she may be. True, its early. She was elevated to the position only in April and presided over her first briefing just a few weeks ago on May 1. But so far her tenure has been glorious, writes...

    Kayleigh McEnany vs. the Press Isn’t a Fair Fight Although I write about the political media a lot, I don’t consume as much of it as most people might think. The political press in this country is full of tedious, irresponsible idiots, and who needs to subject themselves to that? White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is changing my attitude on that a bit though. McEnany so routinely chides the White House press corps that they’ll probably keep wearing masks long after the coronavirus pandemic is over just to hide their embarrassed faces.Sarah Sanders was good at knocking the press...

    If the media is looking for a symbol of 'deviancy' in our politics that only '[makes] things worse,' they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror. New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.After a contentious exchange about...

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany schooled a reporter about Obamagate on Friday. The smug reporter asked the press secretary to name the specific elements of the crime that members of the Obama administration may have committed. After first acknowledging the lack of journalistic curiosity on the subject by the mainstream media, McEnany went through a list of possible crimes. "The Steele Dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee, ... was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. There was the unmasking the identity of Michael Flynn, and we know that...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is itching to hear from Dr. Anthony Fauci as he testifies before the Senate Health Committee Tuesday morning. The Democrat believes that without President Trump looking over his shoulder, Fauci can tell them how he really feels about the administration. "Fauci has a huge amount of respect and it seems at times he's muzzled by the president," Schumer said. "The president is always lurking over his shoulder. This is the first time we get to hear him without the president looking over his shoulder or cutting him off or cutting the reporter off who asks...

    When Kayleigh McEnany was named as the new White House press secretary, replacing Stephanie Grisham, she looked to be a good choice. Its proven to be true and the White House correspondents dont quite know how to handle that.McEnany is being tested by the press. She held the first White House press briefing on May 1 and since then has done two more. Thats three in the span of eight days, which is three more than her predecessor held. During the first one, she was asked by Reuters reporter Jeff Mason if she promises not to lie to them....

    Yamiche Alcindor asks Kayleigh McEnany about some previous comments made about President Donald Trump. McEnany turns the question back on the reporter and confronts her about the headlines CNN was running, and even suggests that she, herself, was naively believing the headlines for a bit. Then she dug a bit further into it and explains her view point to Alcindor.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany flipped the script on a reporter during a press briefing on Wednesday about past comments she made about the threat posed by the Wuhan coronavirus. A reporter asked McEnany about how she told the Fox Business Network on February 25, "This president will always put America first. He will always protect American citizens. We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here, we will not see terrorism, and isn't that refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of Barack Obama?" Many media outlets seized on her words as COVID-19 became a global...

    Former Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has served her president well and is now assuming a role as a contributor for Fox News Channel. Sanders executed her role in the Trump administration masterfully, at most times amid a firestorm of negative media attacks, grandstanding reporters and lambasting from late night talk show hosts. Sanders and her family were tossed from a restaurant and she has been skewered as a Joseph Goebbels figure on social media almost continually. Like most of her predecessors in the White House Briefing Room, Sanders was doing her job which was to disseminate information but...

    She’s new on the job as White House Press Secretary but Stephanie Grisham has already created headlines of her own. Reporters on the scene of President Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un claimed that Grisham was bruised up during a confrontation with North Korean guards. Grisham suffered bruises when a scuffle broke out Sunday between North Korean security guards and members of the media trying to get close to President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as they shook hands at the Demilitarized Zone, the Associated Press reported.The new press secretary was reportedly pushing back...

    Anonymous tales of sex, vengeance, laziness, and criminal behavior are swirling in Washington as President Trump considers who to name his next White House press secretary. The spread of negative stories about contenders, many provably false, others unprovable, demonstrates the risk of Trump taking his time to make a selection, leaving his candidates exposed to attacks from rivals. A fear of some is that Trump himself could hear a rumor and believe it without checking whether it was true. One experienced government spokesperson was said to exhibit a poor work ethic and incompetence, except when news cameras appeared. Another was...

She has a very quick wit about her.During a recent press conference, a reporter with MSNBC hollered from the press corps, “Where is President Trump hiding his tax returns?” Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, astutely responded, “We’ve found a very secure place and I’m certain they won’t be found.” “And just where is that?” asked the reporter sarcastically.Mrs. Sanders grinned sardonically and said, “They are underneath Obama’s college records, his passport application, his immigration status as...

    <p>Yes, the press secretary is better at her job. But that is bad news for the rest of us.</p> <p>The face of the White House press operation has already undergone several iterations, with each embodying the administration in their own special way. First was Sean Spicer, who exemplified the administrations comfort with telling bald lies and being openly hostile toward the news media. Then came Anthony The Mooch Scaramucci, who was Donald Trumps vulgarity incarnate. Now we have Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose style as press secretary is less shrill than Spicer, and less pelvic-thrusting bravado a la The Mooch. But thats what makes her the most insidious of them all.</p>
