Former White House Press Secretary and current Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany spoke out on Tuesday to rip into President Joe Biden for “using the tactic of whispering” to connect with voters.
During the show “Outnumbered,” which she co-hosts, McEnany accused the media of defending Biden’s habit of “whispering” to emphasize his comments.
“Yikes!” McEnany said at the start of the segment, according to Raw Story. “That’s President Biden using the tactic of whispering during his speeches and press conferences. The White House communications experts say it’s a way for him to connect with voters.”
“It’s yet another example of the media seemingly treating Democrats and Biden differently than Republicans,” she continued. “Going back to the whispering, the press defends Biden a lot. But for the [Associated Press] to cite an expert saying this is an intimate form of communication — I think it’s a creepy one.”
A guest on the program agreed with her, saying, “A whispering president with a history of sniffing women’s hair makes a lot of Americans uncomfortable.”
“Yes,” McEnany responded.
Co-host Emily Compagno also weighed in.
“On the whispering, you guys, I’m sorry but when someone whispers in that candyman, Shelter Island, freakshow way, I do not feel connected,” she said. “I feel frightened.”
“Yeah, that’s right,” McEnany continued. “It’s very odd.”
This comes one month after McEnany said she “never lied” during her time in Donald Trump’s White House.
“And I said without hesitation, ‘no,’ and I never did,” McEnany recounted. “As a woman of faith, as a mother of baby Blake, as a person who meticulously prepared at some of the world’s hardest institutions, I never lied. I sourced my information.”
McEnany went on to say that when she took the job, she knew the press would call her a liar even though she always made sure to source her information.
“My dad said, ‘Kayleigh, you’ve got to come up with a motto for your press shop.’ And I did. And our motto was this: Offense only,” McEnany said. “Because I knew what we were up against. Republicans always get the bad headlines, always get the false stories, always get the lies, if I can use that word told by the press.”
