The spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, Kayleigh McEnany, did an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox Business and was asked about Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recommendation that campaign rallies be canceled to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, advice Trump has ignored, and said that Trump is the “best authority on this issue.”
“Look, we have the commander-in-chief, we have the best health experts,” McEnany insisted. “We’re taking this day by day. We’re currently proceeding as normal. Joe Biden is suspending his rallies. He’s been dying to get off the campaign trail. He can only speak for seven minutes.”
“You will immediately be accused of chaos in the White House,” Varney interrupted. “The president goes ahead with holding his rallies. His top doctor — top medical guy — says don’t go with big crowds. I mean, you’re immediately going to be hit with this.”
“Look, the president is the best authority on this issue,” McEnany asserted. “He takes into consult the words of everyone around him.”
“So, I’ll leave it to the president,” she added. “Joe Biden is looking for an excuse to get off the campaign trail. And let me just add, the media’s best hope is for Donald Trump to suspend his rallies. They’ve been wanting to stop this, his avenue to speak directly to the American people.”
Gee, I thought Twitter was his avenue to speak directly to the American people. That’s how they defend his constant tweeting. It’s damn clever of Joe Biden and the media to get hundreds of people to die around the world from this virus just to prevent Trump from holding campaign rallies. And they would have gotten away with it too, if not for those meddling press secretaries.
