Trump-loving RNC spokeswoman mercilessly mocked for her embarrassingly ignorant political commentary

Published

on

The top spokesperson for the Republican National Committee made several embarrassing comments Tuesday night, revealing she doesn’t understand how primaries work, and paid the price by being mocked mercilessly on social media.

Kayleigh McEnany has a Harvard Law degree, but that didn’t stop her from making ridiculous remarks after 28-year old political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseated 10-term Democratic incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s primary race.

It all started after President Trump posted a ludicrous tweet, claiming Crowley lost because he wasn’t nice enough to the far right extremist president.

But Ocasio-Cortez is much further to the left of Crowley, so Trump’s claim was ignorant at best. It wasn’t that Crowley lost because he wasn’t conservative enough, he lost, in part, because he wasn’t progressive enough.

Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. She ran on a platform of Medicare for all, free public college, abolishing ICE, and guaranteed federal jobs.

In response to Trump’s tweet, McEnany wrote:

Since Ocasio-Cortez won in one district, a very diverse and progressive New York district, McEnany’s remark made little sense.

Politico’s Jake Sherman challenged her ignorant comment:

So McEnany responded with another inane remark:

Again, we’re talking about one candidate in one very progressive district, not the whole country.

Sherman tried to explain why her remarks were ridiculous:

McEnany just dug in deeper, suggesting that one primary race applied to the entire Democratic Party:

On Twitter many mocked McEnany’s ignorance:

Published

on

The Daily Beast on Monday evening broke a bombshell report on a secret 2017 meeting in Texas on a right-wing conspiracy theory where espionage was discussed.

"One of their topics was responding to online critics of wealthy Texas businessman Ed Butowsky, who had recently been outed as a driving force behind a retracted Fox News story about murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich," The Beast reported. "The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
