New White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News that Trump works so hard, he doesn’t have time to eat. In fact, she says, his new Chief of Staff says that’s his main concern, making sure Trump gets something to eat. And she said this with a completely straight face too.
Even though it’s been well documented that President Donald Trump spends hours every day watching cable news instead of working, members of his administration are now trying to convince Americans that he’s working so hard at his job that he’s skipping meals.
Trump spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany on Monday told Fox News that many officials in the administration are worried that the president is putting so much time into solving the coronavirus pandemic that he’s not properly nourishing himself.
“[Chief of staff Mark Meadows] was asked what his concern was day to day, he looks at the president’s schedule, and he made the point that the president is so busy and so hard at work, his concern is making sure he gets a bite to eat here and there,” she said.
Well sure, I mean look at him — the man is emaciated. He clearly isn’t eating anything. On Twitter, she’s being made fun of as “Discount Kellyanne.” But that’s a requirement for the job, the ability to say utterly ludicrous things with a completely straight face.
