Debra Messing sends warning to advertisers and networks employing outgoing WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany
'If I ever see [Kayleigh McEnany] on a panel on a news show or hired by a network, I am immediately ceasing to support every single advertiser on that network,” Messing tweeted
Actress Debra Messing became the latest celebrity to push for the blacklisting of current and former Trump White House officials. She tweeted on Monday, January 18, vowing to boycott the companies advertising on any TV show or network that gives a platform to outgoing White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. “If I ever see [Kayleigh McEnany] on a panel on a news show or hired by a network, I am immediately ceasing to support every single advertiser on that network,” tweeted Messing along with the hashtag, “Deplatform Hate.”
A number of her followers agreed with the actress. "Agree!" one of them said, while another commented, "And switching channels." A third remarked, "The same goes for KellyAnne Conway." One more quipped, "And turning off that network — for good." The next reacted with, "She’s the reason I stopped watching CNN in 2016." A commenter tweeted, "The day I see Kayleigh on a @CNN panel in whatever capacity will be the last day I tune into that channel." One more said, "I thought outgoing White House staff always appear on Dances With the Stars?"

We reported earlier that McEnany bid farewell to her time at the White House in a public tweet, earning strong shouts of "good riddance" from Internet users who believe her time was filled with nothing but lies to the American people. President Donald Trump has had a number of White House press secretaries since 2016, but McEnany will be the last, as the Biden Administration will soon be moving in. "So many Great Americans.. As I leave the White House, I have the privilege of reading notes from incredible servants to our country. Men and Women whose names you do not know but who have served their country with pride until the end," McEnany wrote on Twitter, adding several American flag images.

Many in the Trump administration have been packing up their belongings and moving out. McEnany's career began early in April, 2020, where her earliest briefings involved downplaying the severity of the coronavirus crisis. McEnany as press secretary followed Stephanie Grisham - who did not hold press conferences - Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Sean Spicer.
Back in December, she claimed that her life drastically changed once she started working for the Trump administration, spilling how she was 'doxed' and bullied by the media for the same. She said she will “never forget” a day when a police officer turned up at her door shortly after she had assumed the position of Trump press secretary in April 2020.
“Hey, I need to check in on you, we heard there were some rioters that were targeting your home,” McEnany claimed the officer told her, adding that at that particular moment she found out her personal "address had been put up on social media.” There has been no further clarity shed on exactly what kind of rioters the alleged officer was warning McEnany about, but she added how she received messages and calls in the middle of the night that she found were 'targeting' and 'harassing'.
“I lately get three a.m. phone calls from unknown numbers and listen to the voicemails, and they are targeting, harassing messages,” McEnany spilled in the interview. “It’s really unfortunate. I don’t think anyone deserves that whether you are on the right, whether you are on the left, we should have civility in this country, and it’s unfortunate that just wanting to serve your country means that you’re targeted with threats of that nature.”
