White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is trending on Twitter as her lies to defend President Donald Trump are coming back to haunt her.

The latest Twitter trend began with a newly released video ad, titled “Bye Kayleigh.” In it, the Progressive political group MeidasTouch offered a timeline of McEnany’s most outlandish lies in defense of Trump.

In a statement, the Progressive PAC slammed McEnany, comparing her to “Baghdad Bob,” whose real name is Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf. “Baghdad Bob” served as an Iraqi propaganda minister under former Iraq President and dictator Saddam Hussein.

The clip began with McEnany’s infamous February 25 remarks when she claimed the United States would “not see diseases like the coronavirus come here” because of Trump’s pandemic response. That remark was followed by highlights of Trump’s biggest lies about coronavirus. The video ad concluded with McEnany’s infamous lie when she insisted she would never lie to the American public.

The video ad resonated with so many Twitter users, its title began trending. In less than 24 hours, the video surpassed one million viewers. As they retweeted the video, many Twitter users shared their reactions as they blasted McEnany for defending and enabling the White House’s lies.

A clip highlighting McEnany’s previous disapproval of Trump is also circulating again.

The hashtag comes as McEnany fields criticism for her baseless defense of Trump’s latest coronavirus remarks. When Trump traveled to Ohio on Monday for yet another campaign rally, he opted to go for his usual pandemic tactic instead of honoring the 200,000 Americans who have died from the virus.

Downplaying the pandemic yet again, Trump claimed COVID-19 “affects virtually nobody.” During the White House press briefing on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta confronted McEnany about the president’s claims. In true Kayleigh McEnany fashion, she took the gaslighting approach as she insisted Acosta and the American public misunderstood Trump’s remarks and took his words out of context although she even admitted, herself, that the president said exactly what he said.

Despite clear evidence of Trump’s lies, McEnany insisted the president “is telling people the truth.”

‘Signs of a coming conflict are everywhere’: Why a 2nd Civil War would be quite different from the 1st

Published

on

In 2020, the United States has been rocked by everything from a deadly pandemic and a brutal recession to civil unrest in a long list of cities to fears that violent conflicts will occur either on Election Day or after the election. Journalist Matthew Gault, in an article published by Vice this week, wonders if the political divisions in the United States run so deep that the country is headed for another civil war.

Describing the unrest that has occurred this year, Gault writes, "People are marching in the streets, aligned with two ideologically distinct factions. Many of them, overwhelmingly from one side, are armed, and violence and death has resulted when these two sides have clashed. The signs of a coming conflict are everywhere."

2020 Election

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

on

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.

On Thursday, Foreign Policy reported that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross remained on the board of a Chinese joint venture — even while he was tasked with overseeing President Donald Trump's trade war.

"In Chinese corporate documents obtained by Foreign Policy, Ross is listed as serving on the board of a Chinese joint venture until January 2019 — nearly two years into his term as commerce secretary," reported Isaac Stone Fish. "That joint venture, now called Huaneng Invesco WLR (Beijing) Investment Fund Management Co., is an investment partnership formed in September 2008 between Huaneng Capital Services, the U.S. management company Invesco, and a firm Ross founded, WL Ross & Co.
