Donald Trump told 30,000 lies by the time he left office, and former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany covered for the former president. Trump shamelessly gaslit and lied to the American people for years. And during pressers, Trump routinely targeted reporters — usually women — and lashed out at them. So, White House press secretary Jen Psaki is a breath of fresh air, candidly answering questions calmly and thoughtfully.
McEnany took to Twitter to attack President Joe Biden because she said he “didn’t take questions,” even though the Trump administration didn’t hold a press briefing for six months. She further claimed that Biden “snapped at a reporter.” Hey, at least he’s informing the American people of what’s going on instead of neglecting us for six months amid multiple national crises. And Biden did give a lengthy press conference yesterday.
President Joe Biden didn’t take questions, just snapped at a reporter, while we got no answer on:
➡️ whether Biden will force the Little Sisters of the Poor to provide contraception
➡️ whether he wants to make DC a state
What about court packing??

You’re a lot better at attacking than defending, aren’t you? My family knows that firsthand. I hope you’re enjoying life as a former junior employee. I know we are.

You went scurrying out of that press room as if you were being chased by a wild animal.
Both a liar and a coward.

Jen Psaki wiped the floor with you. For honesty, preparedness, intention and vibe. She has a much better boss, to be fair.

Biden is busy cleaning up the godawful mess the Trump administration left behind. McEnany shouldn’t ever criticize anyone again. She lost that right when she shamelessly lied to the American people while the country struggled and looked for guidance. At any rate, shouldn’t she be busy filling out job applications?
