Kayleigh McEnany career
McEnany served as a political intern while still in college for Tom Gallagher, Adam Putnam, and George W. Bush. She then went on to work in the White House Office of Communications, where she authored press briefings.
McEnany made a paid commentary appearance on CNN while still a law student. When it came to the 2016 presidential election, she backed Donald Trump.
Before endorsing Trump, McEnany was a harsh critic of him in the beginning of 2015, saying on CNN and Fox Business that Trump had proven to be a showman and that it was terrible and “inauthentic” to refer to him as a Republican. His remarks regarding immigrants from Mexico were labeled “racist” by McEnany.
McEnany departed her employment at CNN on August 5th, 2017. On Trump’s own Facebook page the day after, she conducted a 90-second webcast called Real News Update.
Throughout the interview, she lauded Trump and claimed credit for bringing the “real news” to the American people.
Since she was a college student, McEnany has maintained a close relationship with the Republican Party. In 2012, she sent multiple tweets questioning Barack Obama’s place of birth, echoing the “birther” conspiracy theory movement. She was critical of the Obama administration.
McEnany tweeted in 2012 about Kenya-based Malik Obama, Obama’s half-brother. She made the error of saying that Obama hurried off to a golf game after the 2002 execution of Daniel Pearl in her response in 2017 to criticism that it was hypocritical of Trump to attend his golf club while serving as president.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) named McEnany as its national spokeswoman on August 7, 2017.
When Trump made comments about a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, that suggested that white nationalists and anti-racist counterprotesters shared blame for violence, McEnany, then the RNC spokeswoman, supported Trump in the face of a bipartisan backlash.
McEnany started working for Fox News as an on-air contributor on March 2, 2021. In the future, she shared the role of co-host of Outnumbered with Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno.
