Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is being trolled on Twitter after she lashed out at her successor, Jen Psaki, following the emergence of reports that photographer Annie Leibovitz was going to photograph Psaki.

McEnany's outrage was following reports on social media that Leibovitz was at the White House to photograph Psaki. She also shot Vogue covers for Michelle Obama and Kamala Harris. "Instead of the glowing profiles, there were hit pieces repeatedly, time and time again," McEnany said on 'Outnumbered.' "It's just so sad that you have a fawning press corps like this, a fawning media sycophantically covering members of the Biden administration. They asked Jen Psaki yesterday about Joe Biden's cat. I mean, it's incredible the kinds of questions that they ask. We need investigative journalism. We don't need fawning coverage. It doesn't do the American people any justice."

'Kayleigh McEnany is jealous'

Twitter did not waste a minute in flooding the social media platform with anti-McEnany memes and posts while hailing Psaki as a far superior press secretary at the same time. "To be fair, if it weren't for Kayleigh McEnany we might be taking Jen Psaki for granted," one of them said, while another wrote, "Sarah Sanders: I was the worst press secretary Kayleigh McEnany: Hold my binder." A third noted, "Jen Psaki > Kayleigh McEnany. Enough said." One more commented, "Kayleigh McEnany was the kind of kid that would have a birthday party and no one would show up."

The next quipped, "And really, it's good for Kayleigh, because when Annie Leibovitz does portraits, it's about capturing the soul of the subject... and Kayleigh is missing one of those." Another remarked, "Aww, Kayleigh McEnany is jealous that Press Secretary Jen Psaki is being praised and admired for the amazing job she does telling the truth. Good thing no one sane gives a shit about her feelings or jealousy. Keep on crying!" A commenter tweeted, "Call me petty, but it gives me immense joy to see the liar Kayleigh McEnany butthurt about not getting a photoshoot with Annie Liebowitz while Jen Psaki is. Cry more." 

A person reacted with, "Propaganda Minister Kayleigh McEnany is upset over the great press Jen Psaki is getting But she didn’t seem upset at all over the disastrous Trump regime or the fact that our Capitol was invaded by their mob Weird." One of them wrote, "Poor Kayleigh is desperate for relevance, but, alas, she'll always be known as the silly little girl who took a job as the Chief Liar for the Liar in Chief, and did it badly. Even if she goes on to a long career as a Fox 'News' Stepford talking head, her legacy is set for life."










McEnany also lashed out at NYT

McEnany also recalled a time when so many women in the Trump administration were pregnant and The New York Times came to interview them, but never actually ended up doing a piece, highlighting the bias in the media. "We kept waiting for the story to pop. It never did because it just simply wasn't negative enough," McEnany said.

When New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted last year noting how "refreshing" it was to see women like Biden's campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon balancing her career with the responsibilities of having to raise a kid, McEnany replied with a picture of her pushing a stroller in the White House. "Sarah [Sanders] was a working mom. Stephanie Grisham was. I was, and Morgan Ortagus was pregnant during her final year at the State Department. but Maggie Haberman seemed to have forgotten that," McEnany wrote.
