White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany continually has to fight off lies and Democrat attacks from the Fake News Media.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought out the worst in the press.
And Kayleigh McEnany shut down one question that Americans could not believe.
During Tuesday’s press briefing, a fake news reporter confronted McEnany over comments made by the Minneapolis Federal Reserve president calling for a hard four to six week shutdown of the economy to control the coronavirus.
McEnany shutdown the suggestion, noting that it went against science and public health recommendations by pointing out that even Dr. Anthony Fauci stated a second shutdown was not necessary.
“No. And I would refer you to what Dr. Fauci said back in May. He said, ‘We can’t stay locked down for such a considerable period of time that you might do irreparable damage and have unintended consequences, including consequences for health.’ And several of those consequences I’ve outlined for you before. For instance, the fact that, in any given year, you have 120,000 Americans who die from drug overdose or suicide. And we saw during the lockdown previously that we saw overdoses nationally jump by 18 percent in March and 29 percent in April, 42 percent in May,” McEnany stated.
A reporter followed up and demanded McEnany commit to a second shutdown, which McEnany immediately rebuked.
“I’m certainly not going to engage in hypotheticals, but, no, the President is not considering a national lockdown. What he is encouraging is mitigation efforts like wearing a mask, which is patriotic; like social distancing; and engaging in these really commonsense, safe measures to safely reopen and avoid the health consequences of a lockdown,” McEnany added.
The media wants a second shutdown because they know it will kill any chance for economic recovery, which spells doom for President Trump’s re-election chances.
