Reacting to news that White House press secretary Jen Psaki will be leaving her post in the spring to take a position on MSNBC, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) attempted to make a comparison between President Joe Biden's spokesperson and Kayleigh McEnany who served under twice-impeached Donald Trump.
Needless to say, her stab at criticism didn't go well for her or McEnany as critics recalled McEnany's stormy tenure after promising reporters that she "would never lie."
According to Boebert, "The only thing Jen Psaki did as press secretary was to prove to America how much better Kayleigh McEnany was."
As one commenter put it, "Comparing Kayleigh McEnany and Jen Psaki is like comparing a clearance box of Franzia to a Chateau Margaux 1787."
That was the general tenor of comments aimed Boebert's way -- as you can see below:
No one can recall one truthful statement Kayleigh McEnany made when she was press secretary.\n\nNo one can recall one truthful statement she has made since not being press secretary.— Emmanuel \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf2\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@Emmanuel \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf2\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1648910039
Kayleigh McEnany wouldn\u2019t take questions from media that she didn\u2019t like. She refused questions from Kaitan Collins and called her an \u201cactivist\u201d. \n\nJen Psaki answers questions from Peter Doocy even if the questions are below her intelligence.pic.twitter.com/QmOOI16eJA— Danielle Clo\u00eb \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6\ud83c\udf3b (@Danielle Clo\u00eb \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6\ud83c\udf3b) 1648914035
Jen Psaki leaving the WH is a reminder that good things eventually end, so appreciate them while you can.\n\nKayleigh McEnany is a reminder that shitty things never fully go away, no matter how hard you try.— Smite\u26a1\ufe0f (@Smite\u26a1\ufe0f) 1648915464

Jen Psaki presents a daily master class on how one operates as White House Press Secretary.\n\nLyin' Kayleigh McEnany was worse than Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was worse than Sean Spicer, who was worse than anyone.\n\n@laurenboebert is a festering boil on the U.S. body politic.https://twitter.com/laurenboebert/status/1510263184854331392\u00a0\u2026— Bob Geiger (@Bob Geiger) 1648917455
