LOL: New WH Press Sec Vows “I Will Never Lie To You”

Deadline reports:

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Friday did something her predecessor never did: She held an official press briefing. “I will never lie to you. You have my word on this,” she said in response to a question.

She also told reporters that they do plan to continue the briefings and she will announce “timing forthcoming.” For about 40 minutes, McEnany swiftly answered questions, and her experience as a cable news commentator, as one of the president’s staunchest defenders, was clear.

But some of the same concerns among the members of the media remained: Her criticism of the way that China handled the early outbreak of coronavirus ignored the president’s own praise of Beijing.
