By now, no one actually expects anyone in the White House, and especially not a Trump press secretary, to answer a question honestly. Sean Spicer will forever be known for his “biggest crowd ever…PERIOD!” moment and Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her claim that she wants to be remember as honest and transparent after having told hundreds of easily verifiable lies. McEnany may go down in history as having two of the most head-shaking moments in one week, however.
The first came when she insisted at a press conference that Trump really, really does read. The second is her response to the president’s niece, Mary Trump, and the tell-all book she’s about to release. McEnany said that she hadn’t read the book, but “it’s a book of falsehoods.”
The book, set to be released on July 14, 2020 in plenty of time ahead of the November 2020 presidential election, is titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man and is chock-full of embarrassment for the president and his family. His niece claims that he made comments about her breasts, that his own sister said he had never accomplished anything on his own other than five bankruptcies, and that he left his older brother alone to die.
.@PressSec on Mary Trump's book:
"Have yet to see the book, but it is a book of falsehoods."

McEnany’s response is typical of the White House run by a man who once said that all negative polls are fake news. Twitter was amused by the White House response to what is sure to be an explosive tell-all. Read some of their comments below:
