“God put me in this position, at this moment in time, for a reason.”
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany says it was God’s plan for her to be President Donald Trump’s White House press secretary.
In a glowing Fox News interview, McEnany uses the word “God” several times – including saying that God’s plan was for her to be Trump’s press secretary.
“God had a clear and definite plan for my life, and he put me on this journey in media and politics for a reason,” the 32-year old former Fox News employee told the conservative media outlet.
“I knew that God put me in this position, at this moment in time, for a reason,” McEnany added. “I recall both a former Democrat colleague at CNN as well as my Dad telling me you come into your position ‘for such a time as this’– words from the book of Esther, a book that my hometown church ironically did a series on during my time here at the White House.”
“I tell you this to emphasize I approached this position with a sense of responsibility to live up to the task God had planned for me.”
“You will have struggles, hardship and seemingly insurmountable challenges,” McEnany said, talking about balancing family and career, adding, “know you can overcome through faith and that God has a path for you if you trust Him and follow it.”
She also blasted the press for challenging the administration instead of doing their job the way she thinks they should: being stenographers for the administration.
After the White House press pool tired of the lies they were fed by McEnany’s predecessors in the Trump administration, on her first day at the podium they asked her if she would ever lie to them. She promised she would not. By the end of her first briefing she broke that promise.
Despite – or perhaps because of – her belief that being Trump’s press secretary is God’s plan, McEnany has continued to lie to the press and to the American people so frequently there are countless articles written about her falsehoods and half-truths.
She tells Fox News her briefing the press, which has all but disappeared now that she is also working for the Trump campaign, “always stands out to me as an example of the difference between the media’s sensationalism and the type of substance the American people deserve.”
And she continued to blast reporters, whom she attacks frequently in her press briefings.
“Some journalists, not all, are driven so much by scorn for the president, to the point of really interfering with, what I believe, their duties are, which is to convey information given to them by the administration to the American people.”
The “duties” of the press, contrary to McEnany’s claim, are not to “convey information given to them by the administration to the American people.” The duties of the press are to report truth. Especially when an administration lies daily, the press has a responsibility to say what is a lie and what is the truth.

‘I Never Lied’: Kayleigh McEnany Says God Made Her Tell the Truth in the White House Despite Documented Lies
Kayleigh McEnany insisted on Sunday that she never lied as White House press secretary because she believes in God.
While speaking to Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit, McEnany recalled that she had been asked if she would ever lie to the American people soon after taking the job as press secretary.
“And I said without hesitation, no,” she remarked. “And I never did. As a woman of faith, as a mother of baby Blake, as a person who meticulously prepared at some of the world’s hardest institutions, I never lied. I sourced my information.”
McEnany complained that the press has attacked her by calling her a “liar.”
“Our motto was this: offense only,” she told the crowd. “Because I knew what we were up against. Republicans always get the bad headlines, always get the false stories, always get the lies — if I can use that word — told by the press. There is one standard for Democrats and another for Republicans. And we must be on offense.”
McEnany went on to recount news reports that she claimed had been fabricated to damage former President Donald Trump.
She did not address the litany of lies that were reported by the news media during her tenure as White House press secretary.
In one article alone, Refinery29’s Natalie Gontcharova detailed nearly two dozen of McEnany’s falsehoods.

‘Excels at Ignoring Women’: Madison Cawthorn Slammed for False Claim He’s First Freshman to Have a Bill Passed
When North Carolina Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn first came to Capitol Hill in January he quickly sent out a message to the GOP caucus admitting he had no interest in legislation.
“I have built my staff around comms rather than legislation,” he wrote in a January 19 email to House Republicans.
Now he’s trying to turn that messaging into messaging about legislation that he’s passed. Except he hasn’t passed any legislation.
“I am proud to announce that my office is the FIRST Freshman office to have a bill pass the House!” he tweeted, falsely, Wednesday morning.
🇺🇸BREAKING: I am proud to announce that my office is the FIRST Freshman office to have a bill pass the House!
This bill will provide our veterans with much needed assistance as they reenter the workforce!
Never forget, America is the land of the free BECAUSE of the brave.🇺🇸
— Madison Cawthorn (@CawthornforNC) May 19, 2021
Social media users were quick to point out that not only is Cawthorn not the first, he hasn’t actually passed any bills he’s sponsored — meaning, he hasn’t passed any bills he or his staff have drafted. Any member of Congress can co-sponsor a bill, and he’s bragging about putting his name on a bill that passed.
As it turns out, the first freshman to have a bill passed is a Democrat, Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux of Georgia. Cawthorn voted for the bill that made her the first freshman to have a bill passed in this Congress, as Yahoo News reported.
Overall, Rep. Cawthorn has sponsored 10 bills or resolutions, and co-sponsored 110.
Of the 10, none have passed the House.
Cawthorn a few hours later amended his claim, but instead of graciously apologizing to the freshman Democrat who was the first to have a bill passed, Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, he handed the honor to the first Republican:
Spoke too soon! Turns out @RepGarbarino holds the honor of first Republican Freshman! Massive shoutout to him and his team! Very proud to be among the first!
— Madison Cawthorn (@CawthornforNC) May 19, 2021
Cawthorn’s lie was quickly retweeted by Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier, who has nearly one million followers. The retweet is still up even though it’s false.
The response to Cawthorn’s latest stunt has not been kind, with some even exposing his poor attendance record.
The Bro Congressman excels at ignoring women.

‘Not Even Close to True’: CNN Blasts Just-Elected GOP Caucus Chair Elise Stefanik’s ‘Wildly Inaccurate’ First Speech
U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), a Trump acolyte, was just elected to replace booted House Republican Caucus Chair Liz Cheney. In her first speech minutes after securing her new leadership position Stefanik delivered a “wildly inaccurate” claim, CNN reported.
“We see the worst jobs report in over 20 years,” Stefanik said.
“I just want to note something also that was just wildly inaccurate,” CNN’s Poppy Harlow said on-air after the speech. Stefanik was “talking about the economy, blasting this economy, saying we just got ‘the worst jobs report in 20 years.’ That is not true, not even close to true, we’ll keep monitoring this we’ll be right back.”
One year ago America, under Stefanik’s top supporter, President Donald Trump, America did see “the worst jobs report in U.S. history.”
Listen to Stefanik’s speech:
“My focus is on unity—because that’s what the American people, and that’s what our voters, deserve,” Rep. Elise Stefanik says shortly after being elected House GOP conference chair, replacing Liz Cheney. https://t.co/1bGf8Z7eHJ pic.twitter.com/UOeKPmMiQ7
