Being the White House Press Secretary is not an easy job, and it has certainly been made more difficult by the introduction of Donald Trump to the White House.
We don’t mean that in a negative way, but any time that you insert a bombastic and purposeful disruptor to the equation, there is bound to be turbulence. The job of the White House Press Secretary is to turn this turbulence into momentum, like some sort of semantics-skier on a field of mainstream media moguls, (literal skiing moguls, not Murdochs).
The latest person to take the job, Kayleigh McEnany, seems to have a pretty good grasp on the gig thus far.
In an interview with “FOX & Friends” on Tuesday, McEnany said reporters are making the pandemic about themselves.
“What I would note is, leave it to members of the White House press corps to make it about them, to take a question, to turn around and somehow say, how dare you ask this of me, me, me. Well, guess what, it’s not about me. This is about the American people,” McEnany said.
“President Trump says ask China about this, ask China about the facts that they slow-walked information, that alongside the WHO, that American lives were put at risk,” she said. “China has some real questions to answer here, but leave it about the White House press corps to make it about themselves.”
Of course, the mainstream media has been infatuated with the idea of disparaging the Trump administration over the course of the last three years, as “the resistance” continues to play make-believe with their alleged rebellion against the faux-enemy they’ve portrayed POTUS to be.
