Kayleigh McEnany just dropped the hammer on this fake news reporter’s lie about Trump
Since taking over as Donald Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany restored White House press briefings.
In these sparring sessions, the Fake News Media always tries to make bad headlines for the President through lies, smears, and hoaxes.
But Kayleigh McEnany just dropped the hammer on this fake news reporter’s lie about Trump.
At a recent White House press briefing, some fake news reporter attacked President Trump for holding a press conference in the Rose Garden where he attacked Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Amazingly, the reporter claimed it was a problem for the President to make his case for re-election.
McEnany shot back that the event was in complete compliance with the 1939 Hatch Act, which prevents executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.
But as McEnany pointed out, the law exempts the President and Vice President.
“We act in accordance with the Hatch Act,” McEnany shot back. “It’s well-established that the president and the vice president are not subject to the Hatch Act. It says this much in the Hatch Act. It says that the Hatch Act applies to executive branch employees, which is defined in the Hatch Act as employee, meaning any individual other than the president and the vice president.”
The fake news reporter tried one more time but McEnany wouldn’t budge.
“Go read the Hatch Act. That’s why what you’re alleging is problematic for the president. No, your real problem was the fact that the president gave a very good powerful speech from the Rose Garden,” McEnany fired back.
The Fake News Media’s new line of attack is that the President of the United States is using the White House setting to hold campaign rallies disguised as press conferences.
Of course, if the President traveled outside Washington, D.C. to hold a campaign event, the press would whine that the President was campaigning in the middle of a pandemic.
No matter what President Trump does, the Fake News Media will invent some way to criticize it.
