The White House has yet to announce President Donald Trump’s latest press secretary, his fourth in just over three years, but already Kayleigh McEnany is getting massively mocked on social media.
The New York Times reports McEnany, who currently is the Trump campaign’s National Press Secretary, will take over from Stephanie Grisham as White House press secretary for the Trump administration. New White House chief of staff Mark Meadows “wants her to focus on defending the president on television, according to people familiar with the move.”
McEnany has a Harvard Law degree and a B.S. from Georgetown. She was a CNN contributor and subsequently became the national spokesperson for the RNC.
Despite her impressive résumé, McEnany’s false statements, especially about the deadly coronavirus pandemic, are getting a great deal of attention. Her Twitter feed is a narrow repository of religious tweets and pro-Trump tweets.
Many are pointing to this tweet from CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski. McEnany, on the left, says: “We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here,” and adds: “Isn’t it refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of President Obama.”
On the same day Larry Kudlow said coronavirus was “contained” on Feb. 25th, Trump’s campaign spox made an even more bold claim.

Here’s how many are responding to Trump’s latest hire for a White House fueled by massive firings and resignations.
Will @kayleighmcenany tell us where the millions of coronavirus tests are now?

According to the NY Times, Kayleigh McEnany will be the WH Press Secretary. This is her on Fox on February 25 saying “we will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here…”
There are currently 368,533 confirmed US cases, per Johns Hopkins University. https://t.co/RqNbz00iW7

Great!!! The new White House Press Secretary is a liar. Just like the last one. And the one before her.
Trump just picked Kayleigh McEnany as his new Press Secretary.
Here she is on Fox News, Feb. 25th — lying to the American people already.

Of course he’d choose the lady that was the face of his propaganda State TV network.
