White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was definitely on fire on Thursday.
First, she took on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who threatened the president saying that he “better have an army” if he went to New York City.

“There you have Gov. Cuomo saying you can’t come to New York without an army. Well I guess that is the case when you have over a thousand shootings before Labor Day, when there’s a 277 percent increase in shootings in a one-month period over the year prior.”
Boom. Exactly, as I wrote earlier. He was threatening Trump but he was also basically admitting people can’t walk down the street without needing an army, that’s how unsafe New York Democrats have left the city.
But then McEnany took on “Marie Antoinette”: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Pelosi got busted breaking the pandemic rules in San Francisco, going to get her hair and a blow-out done at a salon when salons are all supposed to be closed and blow-outs forbidden. She was also caught without wearing a mask on the video and that also was against the rules. Rules clearly don’t apply for her.
So McEnany just hilariously took her down during the presser saying that they’d been looking for her and now they’d found her, not in the halls of Congress, but violating California’s rules at the hair salon. McEnany said she would play Pelosi’s visit to the hair salon on a loop for everyone, so everyone could see what Pelosi had done, while lecturing everyone else about the rules.

Just amazing, McEnany was really made for this job at this time. She just rips Pelosi to shreds.
McEnany blasted Pelosi’s efforts to try to shift blame to the salon owner, saying not only should Pelosi come back to Washington, D.C. and actually make a deal to provide relief to pandemic-injured Americans, but that she owed an apology to the salon owner who she smeared who is now being threatened.
But that would require Pelosi having a conscience, which clearly she’s lacking if she’d blame the poor salon owner for her actions.
