Slate "Trump's Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Leaves White House a Few Days Early"

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2021/01/trump-kayleigh-mcenany-leaves-white-house-early.html

(my comment - good riddance to a constant liar)

Kayleigh McEnany, President Donald Trump’s press secretary, has decided not to stick around until the end of the term and packed up her office Friday. Although she will continue officially holding the role, she will no longer be at the White House, or even in the nation’s capital. McEnany will reportedly be working remotely from Tampa until Wednesday.

After some reports that she was leaving, McEnany sent out a tweet acknowledging that. “As I leave the White House, I have the privilege of reading notes from incredible servants to our country,” McEnany tweeted. Amid the packing up she also had time for one last tiff with a journalist, pushing back against a tweet from the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, who first reported the news that McEnany was leaving the White House. Haberman had tweeted that “the last time McEnany responded to a question from me was when it was a story about herself.” The press secretary said that “with one exception, the last time she emailed me was July,” speculating that was because she “refused to be an anonymous source for her.”

McEnany took on the job of press secretary in April from Stephanie Grisham, who served for nine months and didn’t hold a single news conference. McEnany had been a staunch defender of Trump on cable news before joining him in the White House.

Ever since Trump moved into the White House, his press secretaries often made news themselves as they tried to speak for a president who often liked to talk for himself via Twitter. Sean Spicer was the first press secretary and he only lasted seven months. Then came Sarah Huckabee Sanders who was in the role the longest, serving for almost two years until June, 2019. In her first news conference, McEnany famously told reporters, “I will never lie to you. You have my word on that.” But, of course, she often did just that. “The White House press briefings have become something akin to a parody of Trump’s administration” Vox’s Aaron Rupar wrote in September. “Instead of providing the public with useful information, McEnany puts on a masterclass of spin, obfuscation, and propaganda that would be amusing if it wasn’t such an affront to the idea that the federal government should work on behalf of the people.”

(it's hard to ponder who was most despicable in this role)

8. Looks like she has been crying

She must have known they were evil when she took the job but the attempted
coup was just too much. She knew she was lying for Trump & company but
the coup was a bridge too far.

BTW Lose the hair extension/curling iron, make up, and fake tan her "hottness"
drops right off.

BTW Biden's pick for Science/Technology office one woman was the head the
Combined Harvard/MIT genome project. Nice to see adults back in charge.

11. Eek...I just noticed her eyeliner..

She's drawn it all the way to her tear ducts. It's making her eyes appear smaller and further apart.

14. It looks like she has been crying. Maybe she had a Traudl Junge (hitler's secretary) moment when ..

... learned that Trump had sent his mob to kill Pence and Pelois.

Junge described Hitler as a kindly and paternal figure who she very much wanted to please. She worked at the Berghof in Berchtesgaden, the “Wolf’s Lair” headquarters in East Prussia and accompanied Hitler when visiting Mussolini in northern Italy.

6. She looked awful at her last presser - Jan 7th

Her lips and eyes were swollen. She managed to get false eyelashes on, but the rest of her make up looked bad and it made her skin color look pale. She didn't set or style her hair and pulled it behind her ears, revealing far set eyes.

21. She's who Forbes aimed its warning about employing known professional liars about

more than anyone:

Chief content officer and editor of wealth publication Forbes, Randall Lane, said businesses that choose to hire any of the outgoing president’s officials will have all future communications assumed to be lies.

“Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists... and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet,” Randall wrote in the article titled ‘A Truth Reckoning: Why We’re Holding Those Who Lied For Trump Accountable’.

“Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.”

Lane said the attack on the US Capitol Building last Wednesday was the result of a years’ long misinformation campaign, and that Trump’s officials don’t deserve to be spared from the fall-out.

He said the press secretaries are the worst, but Trump's lawyers need to be assumed to be professional liars too.
