White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed on Wednesday that she has been permanently been locked out of her Twitter account by the powers that be after re-tweeting the bombshell New York Post story exposing Hunter Biden.
McEnany told Fox host Sean Hannity that the ban on her account is not temporary, rather a permanent ban that will only be lifted if she agrees to remove the tweet linking to the Post expose.
The White House spokeswoman told Hannity that the platform moderators “essentially have me at gunpoint” and are withholding access to her account until she agrees to comply with the narrative.
“It’s not a temporary blockage,” McEnany told Hannity. “When I log on to my Twitter account, it says I’m permanently banned. They essentially have me at gunpoint and said unless you delete this story, a news story by the New York Post, I cannot regain access to my account.”
The Post’s report contains numerous allegations about both Joe and Hunter Biden and, if the claims are true, could devastate Biden’s presidential campaign with less than three weeks until election day.
Social media networks across the board have clamped down on the story, claiming that it’s false and based on illegally obtained information, locking down and banning accounts at a shocking pace attempting to slow the spread of the report.
“This was a news story with emails, pictures of the emails … even the Biden campaign does not dispute the authenticity of the emails,” McEnany explained. “Meanwhile … the ayatollah of Iran [is] tweeting ‘death to Israel’. This is permitted on Twitter, but an email that is reported … by the New York Post, a credible outlet, you are not allowed share that information.”
Twitter claimed that McEnany’s account was suspended for “violating our rules against distribution of hacked material.” Twitter did not afford the same luxury to President Trump when the New York Times claimed to have obtained his tax returns just a couple of weeks ago.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted on Wednesday that “our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great.” Dorsey’s confession may be too little, too late, as GOP Senators have already announced their intention of subpoenaing Dorsey to demand answers for the longtime pattern of censorship on the platform.
