Former Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany pitched one of her signature hissy fits on Fox News this afternoon, in response to a Biden White House staffer who dared to criticize one-term, twice-impeached former President Trump and his entire administration for their failure to leave behind a sufficient plan to combat the never-ending, ever-growing COVID-19 pandemic before they departed the White House.
White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made an appearance on a podcast earlier today, during which she criticized the former president and his officials, complaining that no one cared to leave the incoming administration any form of a sufficient plan for response to the coronavirus global health crisis.
“There was absolutely no plans left for us on how to move forward from the previous administration to address any of it,” Jean-Pierre lamented.
Later today, following the Deputy Press Secretary’s podcast complaints, Trump former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany took to her Fox News pedestal to rage against the Biden staffer and her gall to dare to criticize their Dear Leader.

“There she is blaming President Trump,” McEnany fumed during her segment on the ultra Right-wing outlet. “But I’m going to give you a direct quote from President Joe Biden. This is the direct quote: ‘President Trump does not have a plan; I do.’ He told us he had a secret plan in the basement. That was obviously a lie!”
“So now they’re not just admitting they didn’t have a plan, they’re saying Trump didn’t leave us one,” Kayleigh continued to rage. “Hold up. Yes, President Trump left you a plan, 800 million vaccines contracted for, contracted for with Operation Warp Speed. We upscaled testing. There were no tests when President Trump came into office. This was a novel pathogen. Testing was upscaled 3,200% between March and July.”
McEnany went on to claim that Donald Trump had left President Biden “the most advanced testing system in the world.”
“So, Karine Jean-Pierre, I don’t want to hear from you, you weren’t left a plan!” she shouted during the Fox panel. “You were left a plan and you burned it to the ground and now you’ve left Americans devastated without tests and Covid raging across the country!”
In contradiction to Kayleigh’s complaints, and confirmation of Jean-Pierre’s, CNN spoke with sources last year who said the incoming Biden administration was astonished to find that the preceding administration did not leave behind a plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccinations, that they’re still all too happy to take all the credit for.
