Republican National Committee spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany was on the receiving end of some push back on Fox News Saturday after a new host suggested President Trump’s comments about fired FBI director James Comey were not befitting of the highest office holder in the land.
McEnany called Comey “rogue, disgruntled employee” and criticized him for such acts as taking memos.

McEnany was then confronted by the Fox News host, who asked about
