Fox's Wallace Shreds Kayleigh McEnany for Questioning Reporters' Faith

Source: Daily Beast

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace tore into White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Sunday morning for questioning the religious beliefs and faith of White House reporters, saying he’s never seen a press secretary act like that in his long career.

Following President Donald Trump’s Friday announcement in which he demanded that all houses of worship reopen “right now” and toothlessly threatened to “override” governors who have limited gatherings due to coronavirus restrictions, McEnany took a snide shot at the press corps.

Asked what federal powers Trump had to force states to open up places of worship during the pandemic, McEnany said the president would “strongly encourage” the governors that churches are essential before snarking that she found it “interesting to be in a room that desperately wants to seem to see these churches and houses of worship stay closed.”

[...]

“Donna, I spent six years in the White House briefing room covering Ronald Reagan. I have to say, I never—and in the years since too, I never saw a White House press secretary act like that,” Wallace declared to former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile.

Before joining Fox in 2003, Wallace worked for NBC from 1975 to 1988 (and was moderator of Meet the Press from 1987-88) and ABC from 1989 to 2003. When he was hired in 2003, the right wing Media Research Center called Wallace "an ABCer with a Liberal Record" who "delivered a pretty conventional liberal media take on such issues as welfare reform and the environment" during the mid-90s for ABC.

Although FNC's opinion shows like Hannity and Carlson can be heavily slanted and even conspiracy peddling, at least the news shows on FNC have standards. Shepard Smith was also known to challenge the popular right wing narratives before leaving FNC last year.

5. Two things regarding McEnany.

We need to stop calling self-entitled women 'Karens' and start calling them 'Kayleighs'.

Also, her last name should be spelled, and pronounced 'MAGA-Ninny'.

10. He still has a long way to go, but I'm starting to not dislike Chris Wallace as much....

...as I have in the past (he still has to make up for his ambush of Bill Clinton)

Maybe ghosts of his father are showing up in his dreams?

11. McEnany's eye makeup is totally unprofessional

Unless she's a porn actress.

Then it's perfect.

12. Maybe she sought guidance from FLOTUS?



Every woman around Trump regularly is always seen dolly'd up?
You'd think he was a shallow asshole or something?

14. Where has he been the past 3 years?

“I never saw a press secretary acting like that”? Did he not watch any of hucklebee sanders’ daily shit shows? She was the queen of snark.

15. An insipid spokesperson for the most corrupt administration ever

implies that reporters doing their jobs are not "godly" enough. Like this thing at the podium is a devoted servant of God.

Donna Brazile makes me puke.... ""Oh I know Kayleigh.... blah blah blah." You're one of them, Donna.
