White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday said that President Donald Trump’s niece had published a “book of falsehoods.”
“Have yet to see the book, but it is a book of falsehoods,” McEnany said. “It’s a book of falsehoods and that’s about it.”

Kayleigh McEnany gets busted during her press briefing after falsely claiming Amy Coney Barrett is a Rhodes scholar
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has incorrectly described Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump's third nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, as a "Rhodes scholar." But reporters corrected McEnany during a press conference on Thursday, letting her know that although Barrett graduated from Rhodes College in Memphis, she isn't a Rhodes scholar.
The reporter told McEnany, "You said that Judge Barrett is a Rhodes scholar. I'm not sure that that's true" — and McEnany, looking at her notes, responded, "That's what I have written here."
Another reporter at the press conference chimed in, "She attended Rhodes College." And McEnany acknowledged her mistake, saying, "Attended Rhodes College. So, my bad."
Trump’s attempt to checkmate Biden on his son’s sobriety made him look woefully out of touch: columnist
During the Tuesday debate, President Donald Trump attacked Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter for being a recovering drug addict. A profound column by The Atlantic's Adam Serwer explained that not only was it cruel, but it makes Trump woefully out of touch with Americans and says more about his relationship with his children than anything.
"The moments after your first child is born are humbling and overwhelming, the emotional equivalent of staring directly into the sun," wrote Serwer. "You realize that you are suddenly responsible for a human life that you helped create, a sliver of two souls smuggled into another body, a person you will love and protect desperately for the rest of your life."
Right-wing Facebook pages are spreading a fake Kamala Harris quote — that actually came from Trump
Several right-wing Facebook pages have been spreading a quote that supposedly comes from Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, but which actually came from President Donald Trump.
According to FactCheck.org, the Facebook pages have been pairing Harris's image with a quote that reads, "Take the guns first, go through due process second -- I like taking the guns early."
In fact, the quote came from Trump after the mass shooting that left 17 people dead at a high school in Parkland, Florida in 2018.
