President Donald Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has come under the scanner for being a “filthy liar”. She is being questioned by the Internet and being ridiculed for defending Trump. This comes after a viral video by Meidas Touch splashed on the Internet on Tuesday, September 22, which has snippets of McEnany speaking on Fox News channel and addressing various press meets from the White House from time to time. In the video, Trump is also shown facing many questions on Covid-19 in interviews held in different time frames.

In the video, McEnany is shown fiercely vouching for Trump and saying how Trump will always put America first despite the surging pandemic cases. “This president will always put America first. He will always protect American citizens.We will not let diseases like Coronavirus come here.” As she speaks, the video shows Covid-19 cases surging and Trump stating numbers that start from 0 and reach its peak of nearly 200k cases.



 

 

Continuing support for Trump, his press secretary said as the cases rise, “This president has this under control.” Then the video further shows the trajectory of speedily rising cases while Kayleigh McEnany keeps on saying “we are proceeding as normal. Joe Biden is looking for an excuse to get off the campaign trail”. Finally, at the end of the video, Trump is seen evading questions on his response to the pandemic. Meanwhile, McEnany still maintains, “The president has always been clear-eyed with American people and about the lives we could lose.” McEnany shielding Trump from criticism did not end at the video. On September 22, she accused CNN’s Jim Acosta of taking on the POTUS “out of context” during a WH press briefing. At that time, the CNN WH correspondent asked McEnany about what Trump said during an Ohio campaign rally in regard to Covid-19, where the POTUS remarked it "affects virtually nobody".

Acosta asked partially quoting Trump, “I think he was talking about younger Americans. He said it ‘affects virtually nobody. But he said to Bob Woodward that ‘it’s not just older people, it’s young people, too,’ at 200,000 deaths shouldn't be telling people the truth about this virus at his rallies?” To this, McEnany shot back, “The president is telling people the truth.” She added, “You are taking it out of context because you’re making an assertion that he’s not giving critical information when, in fact, he is and I will underscore exactly what he said. He said this, ‘You know, in some states thousands of people, and they’ve had nobody young, below the age of 18 like nobody. They have a strong immune system.’ That is factually true, you can go to the America Academy of Pediatrics website, the Children’s Hospital Association and they list a number of states that have had zero pediatric deaths.”

Despite putting such strong defense for Trump from time to time, the Internet feels McEnany is lying too. Moreover, after the present video rolled on the Internet garnering millions of retweets and likes, #ByeKayleigh started to trend. Under the hashtag, people flogged Trump press secretary saying no one will hire her after Trump leaves the office and that she is a "filthy liar".

Health expert Dr Eric Ding wrote, “I’VE HAD ENOUGH — We need to say goodbye to all of these coronavirus naysayers, pandemic deniers, and dangerous down-players in the WH. COVID19 #ByeKayleigh”. Another wrote, “Kayleigh McBinder is a filthy liar just like her filthy boss. Additionally, she’s a disgusting traitor, a deplorable gaslighter, a gross manipulator, a foul projector, an ugly fake newser, & a shameless bamboozler.”

 



 

 



 

 

A user mocked her, “Kayleigh McEnany is like the smiling magician’s assist who bounces around on stage to distract from whatever illusion the magician is trying to pull off. #ByeKayleigh.” Others called her out on spreading fake news. “All the fake news press wants so badly to say #ByeKayleigh because she owns them on a daily basis. Fake news lies shot down one by one followed by the signature daily mic drop answer, on her way out of the room!”



 

 



 

 

Some ridiculed her, “Bargain Basement Barbie has to go.” A user commented, “Lying is not serving the American People, it's serving your master. #ByeKayleigh.” Many questioned her career prospects. “If lying was an Olympic sport she would win the silver medal. #ByeKayleigh not to mention, after Trump is gone, nobody will hire you. Trust me you will lose sleep as we will make sure to remind you, you were a liar daily.”
