Donald Trump was one of the most vocal presidents when it came to criticizing anyone and anything that didn’t agree with him or shared the same ideas as he did. But on Tuesday, his former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared on Fox News to tell Joe Biden to not speak out on certain issues.
McEnany attacked Biden for speaking out about the Derek Chauvin trial.
After the sequestered jury began its deliberations in the Chauvin trial, Biden told reporters that he was praying for the “right verdict.”
“I’m glad that he at least waited until the jury was sequestered,” McEnany ranted in response. “But I think that the country is such a tinderbox right now, especially Minneapolis. There’s so much hurt, so much pain.”
“And I think it’s the role of the president of the United States to stay back, to not inflame the tensions,” she added. “I think he should have just reserved comment and said he’s praying for the family as we all are.”
It’s hypocritical for McEnany to tell Biden to stay quiet when her former boss would often weigh in on legal matters and controversial events.
After Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with homicide for shootings that left two protesters in Wisconsin dead last August, Trump offered a defense of the suspect.
“He was trying to get away from them, I guess, it looks like,” Trump opined at the time. “I guess he was in very big trouble. He probably would have been killed.”
