The reviews weren’t great for Trump’s racist standup act at the Tulsa Chuckle Hut. Once and future Fox News hack Kayleigh McEnany, who’s currently interning as White House press secretary, tried to smooth away Trump’s callous bigotry with every tool at her disposal, which she keeps in a Mary Poppins bag of lies.
JIANG: Why does [Trump] use racist phrases like the “kung flu”?
LIAR: The president doesn’t.
JIANG: That’s what he’s saying by using the racist phrase “kung flu”?
MCENANY: He is linking it to its place of origin.
JIANG: To be clear, are you saying the White House does not consider [“kung flu”] racist?
MCENANY: To be clear, I think the media is trying to play games with the terminology of this virus when the focus should be that China let this out of their country.
