White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany could not be better suited for the position in which she serves. She may be new to the role, and may purposely portray an image of being young and naive, but as she has demonstrated time and time again, she is anything but. McEnany was well aware of the cesspool she was wading into as she willingly took the plunge headfirst, more than prepared to accept the challenge.
With an expressionless almost dumbfounded look in which she somehow manages to never blink, she can make any reporter feel as though they have just asked the stupidest question in the world. Truth be known, they probably have.
But a recently asked question, worthy a five-star dumbness rating, received the usual famed “Kayleigh look,” but this time it was genuine. There was no need for acting.
The question of the century spewed out of the mouth, and through the mask, of a Trump-hating news analyst from CNN (of course) who also writes political content for, once again, of course, the lie infested news source known as Politico. Lizza’s question stunned not only everyone in the White House briefing room but nearly everyone in America, when very calmly and idiotically, and loudly enough to penetrate the protective barrier strapped to his face, pretty much asked McEnany how many dead Americans is an acceptable number. Really. It happened.
Here is Lizza’s question on full display. “What number of dead Americans, by Election Day, would the White House say we’ve successfully defeated this virus?” “Is there a number?”
Of course, McEnany performed like the all-star she is by taking a bit longer than her usual pause to absorb the unanticipated question as she brilliantly maintained her composure as only she is capable of doing. The room was so silent you could almost hear a mask drop.
With the calmness of an induced coma, McEnany looked the ‘Karen’ reporter straight in his evil eyes as she replied, “Every loss of life counts,” “We say 100,000, but like the president says, ‘one death is something to be mourned.’” “These 100,000 individuals have a face.” She nailed it.
McEnany then let Lizza know he was asking the wrong question, which as one would rightfully expect, sent Lizza’s heart into erratic palpitations as he attempted starting a war of words with America’s highly prized female Cool Hand Luke.
McEnany gave Lizza a stern reminder of her response to his previous question when she had informed him of the extreme difficulty surrounding the president’s decision to shut down the economy, and by making the proper choice, his decision had literally saved thousands of American lives and greatly reduced all of the initially projected death tolls. Boom!
“We are far below 2.2 million dead Americans because of the actions of President Trump,” she told the ill-informed reporter. She then delivered Lizza a one-two punch by following up with, “I answered your question once but if you ask it twice it doesn’t make it any better of a question.” The lady is good.
But as one would think this incident should, it will have no impact on the amount of ridiculously left-slanted questions McEnany will continue to expertly field at every single White House briefing.
As Democrats continue confusing our presidents’ spectacular performance in handling a major worldwide pandemic with the upcoming elections, they will purposely continue attempting to steering everything relevant off track, and this cannot be allowed to happen.
Here is yet another of the more recent imbecilic questions asked during a briefing, to leave you with. It came from Olivia Nuzzi when she had the audacity to ask, not McEnany mind you, but Americas’ actual president, this: “If an American president loses more Americans over the course of six weeks than died in the entirety of the Vietnam war, does he deserve to be re-elected?”
It’s pretty easy to see why President Trump, with more important things on his plate other than dealing with half-witted left-leaning media thugs whose intent is to distort everything he says anyway, has the fullest of confidence in Haleigh McEnany’s astute abilities to fend for herself just fine.
