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:

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’

Published

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked," Trump tweeted. "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!"
