Kayleigh McEnany has railed against recipients of government assistance — but her parents received $1-2 million in PPP loans: report

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has been highly critical of Americans who receive any type of government assistance and isn’t shy about expressing her disdain for “welfare recipients.” But McEnany’s parents, according to data released by the Small Business Administration earlier this week, received millions of dollars in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program.

McEnany’s parents, Michael and Leanne McEnany, own a commercial roofing company in Tampa, Florida called McEnany Roofing. The amount of the loans they received under the PPP, journalist Eric Levai reports in the Daily Dot, was somewhere between $1 million and $2 million. But Levai notes, “Because the SBA will not release loan details, the exact figure could not be determined.”

In March, Congress established the PPP as part of the CARES Act of 2020. The PPP was designed to help businesses that are suffering financial hardship because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Levai reports, “McEnany Roofing appears to employ close to 30 people in its corporate offices, according to its website, and the number of total employees could not be determined. According to the loan data, McEnany Roofing said it employs 141 people.”

In April, however, Kayleigh McEnany said that the PPP was designed to help businesses with ten employees or less.

CNN's fact-checking team of Daniel Dale and Daniel Wolfe have put together a damning timeline that shows Trump has claimed the virus would disappear or go away a total of 38 times over the past eight months, even during times when cases and deaths were surging.

Pat Robertson predicts Trump re-election will usher in apocalypse: ‘By all means get out and vote!’

Published

Televangelist Pat Robertson predicted President Donald Trump would win re-election, and that would usher in the long-promised End Times.

The 90-year-old broadcaster, who has consistently supported the president who is backed by white evangelicals, told "700 Club" viewers that he was certain Trump would win the Nov. 3 election, and he then warned that trouble would soon follow.

"We've never seen the like of it before, but I want to relate to you again, there is going to be a war," Robertson said. "Ezekiel 38 is going to the next thing down the line. Then a time of peace and then maybe the end, but nobody knows the day or the hour when the lord is going to come back. He said the angels don't know it and only the father knows it, so I'm not sure this is the second coming."

Two weeks ago, President Donald Trump declared that he had declassified all documents related to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election -- but now his own chief of staff is saying under oath that isn't true.

On October 6th, the president claimed on Twitter that "all Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago," and then added that "Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country."

In a follow-up tweet, the president similarly wrote, "I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax."
