WATCH: CNN panel bursts into laughter as Kayleigh McEnany claims Trump is headed for ‘a landslide’
A CNN panel discussion on the tightening polls dissolved into laughter after Donald Trump spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany got a bit carried away and suggested Trump was headed for a landslide.
Addressing Trump’s day while Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is taking a few days off, McEnany lauded the GOP candidate for staying on message.
“He has stayed on message consistently,” she remarked. “That’s why he’s leading in Florida not only in one poll, two polls, but the three latest polls, all reputable polls. He’s leading in Ohio by two polls by four points. He’s within five points in Pennsylvania and Michigan.”
It was at this point when the Trump spokesperson went a bit too far.
“This is momentum that could develop into a landslide,” she insisted as one panel member could be heard laughing.
“He’s not just tightening the race, he’s opening up gaps now, ” she continued, before addressing former Bernie Sanders strategist Jonathan Tasini, “I know John thinks it’s anyone’s to dig in there–” as the rest of the panel could be heard joining the laughter.
Tasini was then seen shaking head saying, “Momentum into a landslide? I mean…” before dissolving into more laughter.
