White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has only been in her position for a couple of months, but she’s already one of the mainstream media’s most loathed administration officials.
Case in point, ABC News correspondent Jon Karl, who also leads the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) accused McEnany of using her position for “purely political purposes” in a recent op-ed.
Karl penned a Washington Post op-ed titled “It’s the duty of the White House press secretary to hold briefings. But not like this,” in which he took it upon himself to educate McEnany on what her job description actually is:
The job is to inform the public: to be an intermediary between the president and a press corps the public relies on for information … Denying reality and using the White House podium for purely political purposes is a violation of public trust.
Karl complained that McEnany doesn’t play by White House correspondents’ rules, remarking that “briefings under the current press secretary rarely last 30 minutes — which is short by traditional standards — but routinely include opening and closing messages that more closely resemble the monologues of a partisan political talk show than a public official’s briefing.”
McEnany is the first White House press secretary to hold regular briefings since Sarah Sanders left over a year ago. Sanders also was a major media target due to her pugnacious handling of the hostile press.
Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor defended McEnany, pointing out that “maybe if the news media decided to do their jobs in a professional manner, they wouldn’t need to be treated like spoiled children throwing a tantrum.”
The mainstream media absolutely cannot stand the fact that Kayleigh McEnany continually destroys their talking points and ridiculous questions, and they’re desperate to take her out. Fortunately for the Trump administration, she’s always ready for their attacks.
