White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany shed light on the way that she and other Republican women are treated by the media, accusing the press of bias toward conservatives and calling for “civility” toward everyone, regardless of party affiliation.
The current White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, in an interview to The Daily Caller, shared details about how her life changed after she began to work in the Trump administration.
She stated that she will “never forget” a day when she was at home, shortly after having assumed the position of Trump press secretary in April 2020, when a police officer turned up at her door.
It is unclear what kind of rioters exactly the reported police officer may have been talking about.
According to the press secretary’s comments, she received calls and messages in the middle of the night that she alleged were “targeting” and “harassing”.
The Trump appointee denounced what she characterized as a lack of objectivity toward conservative women in the media, claiming “liberal bias” just because of their party affiliation.
McEnany insisted that “no matter what Republican administration it is, Republican women are just treated differently by virtue of their party ideology.”
Her comments fall in line with recent assertions made by Trump that media, along with big tech corporations like Twitter, Facebook and Google, are “owned by the Radical Left” and biased toward conservatives while simultaneously practicing shadow-bans on Republicans.
McEnany became Trump’s fourth White House press secretary in April 2020, succeeding Stephanie Grisham who had held the position beginning in July 2019.
