The newest White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany promised the nation, “‘I will never lie to you.” at her public appearance. Then she was asked by Chris Cuomo in a CNN interview if President Trump ever misrepresented the truth. Cuomo backed up his question siting that Fact Checker has caught the President making 1200 false or misleading claims since he was sworn into office.
” “He doesn’t lie,” McEnany insisted. “Guess who lies? The press lies.”
“I’m going to ask you this one more time,” Cuomo said. “Kayleigh McEnany, do you believe this president has ever lied to the American people?”
“No,” McEnany said. “I don’t believe the president has lied.” She turned the tables on the host, “Do you believe the fake news media has lied?”
“… if you can’t admit that he lies, the people are never going to believe you about anything,” Cuomo added. but McEnany was not deterred.
“I think you should take a look in the mirror, Chris,” she said.
“I do. And I don’t like these lines,” he said. “But I do like that I don’t lie to my audience every damn chance I get.”
McEnany is following a well-established pattern. The issue of telling fasehoods came up early on in Trump’s presidential campaign. He assured his followers “I will never lie to you.” and explained that “Sometimes, in the heat of debate, and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and believe it or not I regret it,” Trump has developed the bad habit of saying “anything” and encourages McEnany to do the same.
#13 MON ARI – 4/18/1988 – Kayleigh McEnany
Kayleigh McEnany was born on a Monday in the zodiac sign of Aries. This makes the Moon the ruler of her INNER Self and Mars the ruler of her OUTER Self. This combination is emotional and impulsive. It makes for an incredibly motivated and strong opinionated individual. It cannot be known if this extreme motivation is utilized for good or ill, without knowing the character of the individual.
Thie #13 MON ARI Signature is powerful and ready to try anything. It faces adversity boldly, but not always wisely. It is with her INNER Moon that McEnany identifies through her feelings and then through her OUTER Mars that she acts. She thoroughly believes in whatever she is doing is corrct. McEnany has tremendous vitality but she may burn herself out attempting too many things.
McEnany is in her early thirties and terribly young to hold such a prestigious position. No doubt her personal style has served her well, but it is clearly her contentious nature that appeals to her boss. Kayleigh is married with a has a five-month old daughter. Her husband, Sean Gilmartin is a professional baseball player, Tampa is her home base even though she works in the nation’s capitol.
McEnany grew up in Florida where she attended a private Catholic school for girls. She received a degree in International Politics from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. While in law school she appeared as a paid commentator on CNN. McEnany was not initially a Trump supporter and labeled him an “inauthentic Republican.” Her impression changed as his name rose in the polls.
In 2017 the Repulbican National Committee appointed McEnan as it’s national spokesperson. She supported her party’s candidate regardless of how insensitive and reprehensible he appeared. For instance, she sided with Trump’s claim that the activists in Charlottesville, Virginia included “some very fine people” and congratulated him for his “message of love and inclusiveness.”
Another CNN political commentator, Van Jones has more than noticed McEnany’s “special quality”. In the New York Times, he wrote , “I’m not trying to defend the messaging, but what I hope people can acknowledge is there’s very few people in either party who can accomplish what Kayleigh has accomplished in such a short time… People keep taking her lightly, and they keep regretting it.”
