Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told a whopper of a lie at a Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit on Sunday. McEnany pretty much worked as a paid liar during the Trump administration, but she told the audience that she “never lied” during her time as press secretary. McEnany said that being a “woman of faith” and the mother of a baby kept her honest.

“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,” she said.

“I sourced my information. But that will never stop the press from calling you a liar,” she continued to say.


“Our motto was this — ‘offense only,’” she told the audience. “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.”


There was a swift backlash on Twitter.


Do you think it's ok Jeff Bezos doesn't pay taxes, takes a trip to space and still asks the US taxpayer for $10B?
