Kayleigh McEnany Attempts Bob Woodward Excuse But Fails Miserably


Donald Trump knew how deadly the coronavirus was in early February, and yet for months he said it was “going to disappear” and “all work out fine.” Many tens of thousands have died due to that. These words came from Robert Woodward’s tapes of Trump for his new book Rage. It gets worse. The Washington Post investigative reporter gave CNN some of the tapes where 45 said:

‘[It is] more deadly than even your strenuous flues.’

‘This is deadly stuff.’

‘Pretty amazing. [Coronavirus is five times] more deadly [than the flu.]’

‘I wanted to always play it down,I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tried to downplay the audiotapes of Trump. During Wednesday’s White House briefing CBS correspondent Paul Reid asked her about the tape where this president said he “wanted to always play it down:”

‘Did President Trump intentionally mislead the American people about the threat of COVID?.’

She tried to defend her boss:

‘Absolutely not. This president, at a time when you’re facing insurmountable challenges, it’s important to express confidence.’

Reid asked:

‘Is “playing it down,” is that expressing calm? It seems dishonest.’

The press secretary snapped:

‘And he makes clear that he doesn’t want to see chaos, by the way. Which is the second part of the quote, which you failed to read.’

Reid asked again whether 45 lied:

‘[T]he president lied to the American people about the threat of COVID.’

She responded:

‘The president has never lied to the American public on COVID. The president was expressing calm and his actions reflect that.’

Dr. Anthony Fauci world-renowned infectious disease expert told an associate:

‘[Trump] rudderless [and his] attention span is like a minus number. His sole purpose is to get reelected.’

Woodward noticed on Trump’s desk a large picture of Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, apparently what POTUS is after. Watch the video of the press secretary below:
