White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany complained that coronavirus prevention measures were “Orwellian,” and social media users let her have it.
McEnany appeared Wednesday on “Fox & Friends,” where she casually suggested President Donald Trump would serve a second term despite his election loss, accused governors of acting like authoritarians by trying to limit the spread of the deadly virus — and refused to speak to reporters from other media outlets.

McEnany describes acting like a complete and total psychopath to your fellow community as “American.” https://t.co/3JrQRvUI6p

I suspect Orwell would have used @PressSec as a case study in double speak

She’s a national disgrace

Looking forward to her being unemployable for the rest of her miserable life. And also the ethics lawsuits for violations of the Hatch act and suing her to recover our tax payer funded salary

Is she doing ANY government work?

lol facio-muscular analysis of her expression when she says second Trump administration. You have to work really hard to keep up the pretense.

It’s amazing how the call being asked not to have big thanksgiving dinners is “Orwellian” when no one will enforce it, but anyone accidentally caught up in police response to protestors should have known better than to be outside past 9pm.

I missed the passage in 1984 where Big Brother says, “Please stay safe and don’t spread disease to other people.”

My cousin invited me to her Thanksgiving dinner this Sunday after telling me her son tested positive for Covid19. Americans are still trying to treat Covid19 like a bad cold and she was sad when I said I wont be there. I was never planning on leaving my house for Thanksgiving.

It’s hard to answer questions when her boss doesn’t know which lies have been publicly debunked from moment to moment.

McEnany criticizes “Orwellian” coronavirus restrictions.
“The American people know how to protect their health. We’ve dealt with covid for many months.”
Here is how we’re doing relative to Europe, where some big countries began with tough restrictions 2-3 weeks ago. pic.twitter.com/zOAjlq13Jq
