If there’s one thing both Democrats and Republicans can probably agree on about Kayleigh McEnany, it’s that she does not suffer fools gladly.
Such was the case on Tuesday after the White House press secretary did an interview on “Fox and Friends” in which she talked about the Trump administration’s commitment to finding a vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus and how it was deeply irresponsible for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his vice presidential running mate Sen. Kamala Harris to spin ridiculous conspiracy theories that could impact the confidence the American people had in the efficacy and effectiveness of a vaccine.
As per the norm, deceptive Vox.com “journalist” Aaron Rupar (who is frequently retweeted by MSM reporters) shared a shortened video clip to his Twitter account of McEnany’s remarks, making it so that she appeared to claim that the Obama-Biden administration “promised a vaccine” for COVID-19 – which didn’t exist under their administration:

Harvard professor Laurence Tribe saw the clip and shared it to his Twitter account, proclaiming she said something she didn’t:
.@PressSec says Obama & Biden “promised a vaccine” for Covid-19 in 2016? Although Covid-19 first appeared in 2020?

McEnany was not having any of it, and nuked Tribe along with Twitter by including a video of her comments in context, which proves she was talking about the Obama-Biden administration’s efforts on the swine flu, not the coronavirus:
This is a blatant LIE.
WATCH full clip where I clearly mention Swine Flu & the failed Obama/Biden response.

This isn’t the first time Tribe has taken a swipe at McEnany for no apparent reason other than the fact that he suffers from TDS as most professors do. The last time he did it, Sen. Ted Cruz – a former Constitutional law school student of Tribe’s – went off.
As of this writing, Tribe’s deceptive tweet has over 8,000 RTs and counting, and has not been tagged with any “manipulated media” warning from Twitter or anything of the sort. Nor has Rupar’s, which has nearly 3,000 RTs.
