Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday blasted President Joe Biden for speaking out about the Derek Chauvin trial even though her former boss, Donald Trump, often expressed his opinion on similar events.

After the sequestered jury began its deliberations in the Chauvin trial, Biden told reporters that he was praying for the "right verdict."

McEnany, in her role as Fox News host, criticized the current president.

"I'm glad that he at least waited until the jury was sequestered," McEnany ranted. "But I think that the country is such a tinderbox right now, especially Minneapolis. There's so much hurt, so much pain."

"And I think it's the role of the president of the United States to stay back, to not inflame the tensions," she added. "I think he should have just reserved comment and said he's praying for the family as we all are."

As president, Trump often weighed in on legal matters and controversial events.

After Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with homicide for shootings that left two protesters in Wisconsin dead last August, Trump offered a defense of the suspect.

"He was trying to get away from them, I guess, it looks like," Trump opined at the time. "I guess he was in very big trouble. He probably would have been killed."
