Former President Donald Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who has been busy making wild claims about President Joe Biden as part of her new job as a pundit on Fox News, claimed on Thursday that Biden is unwell, unfit for the Oval Office, and is concealing his condition behind a Covid face mask.
McEnany, who was adept at attacking reporters and has a long and documented record of lying to the press, told Fox News viewers to expect Biden to not answer any questions.
“I think he’s prepared to just entirely ignore whatever is asked of him, and to pivot,” she told Fox co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy of Biden’s likely performance before the mic later today before make insinuations about his habit of wearing a mask to avoid spreading the coronavirus.
“I can barely understand what he’s saying with the mask on,” Campos-Duffy claimed in turn.
“I don’t know if that’s on purpose or what we talked earlier about how he hasn’t met with the Republican side, sometimes I wonder, maybe it’s something he doesn’t want to work together or pretend like he’s working together with them, maybe they just don’t want to show how badly he’s declining, I mean I can’t understand him. And there’s, there seems to be such little access, and they know that we have these questions. What else could be the reason?”
“Yeah, I think that’s a great question, Rachel. It’s a scripted presidency, it’s a soundbite presidency,” McEnany responded, utterly laughably given her own record.
The attack on Joe Biden is part of a vicious campaign from the far right, who continues to promote that Biden is mentally unwell and unfit to carry out the duties of the Oval Office.
