White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany hosted a press conference earlier this afternoon and opened with a blistering commentary on several Democrat leaders who have issued Coronavirus related restrictions and then flagrantly ignored them.
“The United States Constitution matters even during a pandemic,” McEnany began. “While democrat politicians seek to impose draconian restrictions against their citizens. This past week the Supreme Court of the United States had their say on New York state’s capacity restrictions, which restricted the number of attendees in places of worship but not other government deemed essential businesses.”
McEnany went on to cite several specific examples. “Behind me you will see images of Democrat hypocrisy on loop,” she explained, before showing some examples of prominent figures like Gavin Newsom breaking their own rules.
Nancy Pelosi, Chris Cuomo and others were all targets of her criticism, which ultimately ended with the line, “Quite clearly these Democrats do not follow their own edicts,” McEnany quipped. “Democrats seek control. These images behind me make clear Democrats mindset: rules for thee, but not for me.”
After her scathing opening remarks, the press essentially ignored all of those examples of hypocrisy and immediately zeroed in on Bill Barr’s recent comments about election evidence, as well as asking why the President has not yet conceded the election.
Coronavirus, pardons, and a host of other issues were discussed. Watch the link above for the entire interaction.
