Media Matters reports:
Fox’s Kayleigh McEnany, a liar who served as White House press secretary under former President Donald Trump, lied about slavery and the founders of the United States during Tuesday’s Outnumbered.
“The haters never take a day off from hating, that is clear. And they never take a day off from getting the facts wrong. We know most of our forefathers, all of our main Founding Fathers were against slavery, recognized the evils of it.”
This is flatly untrue. The majority of signers of the Declaration of Independence owned slaves — 41 of 56, according to one study.
As you surely know, Washington, Jefferson, and Madison all owned hundreds of slaves each.
Fox’s Kayleigh McEnany amazingly claims that “all of our main founding fathers were against slavery, recognized the evils of it.”
