Kayleigh McEnany Calls Out Media For Lying: 'It's A Travesty'
Kayleigh McEnany, the new Fox Newsie who mimicked the lies of ex-President Donald Trump as White House press secretary, railed against media stewardship on Sean Hannity's show Tuesday night. (Check out the video below.)
McEnany interfered in a 60-minute report linking vaccine distribution in Publix supermarkets in Florida with the chain's $ 100,000 contribution to a PAC in support of GOP Governor Ron DeSantis. The segment built a case where the governor favored wealthy supporters for access to specialized vaccines, but this was vehemently denied by DeSantis, Publix, and even some Democrats.
Hannity mentioned to Joe Concha that Publix and DeSantis should sue, which McEnany made eyebrow-raising remarks.
"It's just very important to point out that the standard is so high that any of these news organizations will be held accountable," she said. “You have to show willful malice. It's extremely difficult to prove. It's why "60 Minutes" - it's why the left, MSNBC, CNN, get away with murder every day. They can say what they want because you cannot hold them accountable. It's a travesty. "
"Helloooo pot, meet kettle," cracked a viewer.
McEnany's defense of Trump's fraudulent botching of the coronavirus pandemic and unfounded cries of election fraud enraged critics and news outlets.
She "lies the way most people breathe," CNN's Jake Tapper once said.
McEnany is now a contributor and co-host of the daytime show "Outnumbered" for the conservative broadcaster.
