Trump Absolutely Unloads on ‘Milktoast’ Former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, DeSantis Supporters Lose It

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump surprised observers Tuesday night when he delivered a scathing rant criticizing his “milktoast” former press secretary and current Fox News contributor Kayleigh McEnany.

The source of Trump’s ire were poll numbers in which McEnany claimed during a guest appearance with Jesse Watters showed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was “closing the gap” in the race for the GOP nomination.

A vast majority of polls show nothing of the sort and if they did, it’d be like ‘closing the gap’ on the Grand Canyon.

Trump though, didn’t appreciate the suggestion and absolutely leveled one of his most fierce defenders during his time in office.

“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on Fox News,” he wrote on his Truth Social media platform. “I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up.”

“She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll,” he claimed. “The RINOS & Globalists can have her. Fox News should only use REAL Stars!!!”

Trump Not Pleased With Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany

Trump’s misspelling of milquetoast, whether intentional or not, is hilarious. Almost as funny as that time he called King Charles III the “Prince of Whales.”

Or used the term Liddle’ with that special added apostrophe.

Numerous conservative commentators rushed to McEnany’s defense, especially supporters of DeSantis, noting that she served as one of Trump’s biggest defenders during his first term in office.

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade called the verbal attack “insane.”

“She – was one of the best press secretaries ever,” he said. “She was fantastic, but she’s an analyst now. She doesn’t work for any campaign.”

‘The Rubin Report’ host Dave Rubin referred to the comments as “unhinged” and “sick.”

“The sickest part of Trump’s latest unhinged meltdown is that @kayleighmcenany was not only Trump’s biggest defender but also an absolute star of the administration,” he said. “Going up against hostile press every day with nothing but class.”

“Even the diehards can’t defend this,” he added.

But the ‘diehards’ are defending it.

Why? Because prior to becoming his press secretary McEnany, like many in Trump’s circle it seems, wasn’t his biggest supporter. In appearances on both CNN and Fox Business, she alternately said it was “unfortunate” and “inauthentic” to call him a Republican.

In 2015, she even compared his comments about Mexico not sending their best illegal immigrants to Al Sharpton and said the remarks were “racist.”

“To me, a racist statement is a racist statement. I don’t like what Donald Trump said,” she said.

McEnany Was an ‘Assassin’

Some Trump supporters felt the outrage over his remarks was a little overblown.

Brenden Dilley, a podcast host and 2018 Arizona congressional candidate, pointed out that most people will remember gas prices and higher paychecks when it comes time to vote, not Kayleigh McEnany’s hurt feelings.

“Imagine believing that voters are going to give up Trump gas prices, Trump inflation numbers, job numbers, border security, and foreign policy… Because he made fun of Kayleigh McEnany,” he wrote.

With that said McEnany’s negative comments about Trump were well in the past. If he can forgive JD Vance, he can forgive those remarks.

McEnany has been a favorite of conservatives for the way she fended off liberal media attacks against President Trump. Popular podcast host Joe Rogan described her as “a f***ing assassin” and compared her to Michael Jordan as the “best ever.”

During a podcast last August, Rogan admitted the job of White House press secretary is “a weird job” to begin with and said the “only one that was good at it” was McEnany.

“That lady was a f***ing assassin,” he gushed. “That lady had like binders with footnotes and anyone would say some shit, ‘Well, that’s interesting, because actually, CNN said this.’ And she would like, quote it back to them and stuff it in their face.”

Describing the same aforementioned poll, McEnany pointed out that Trump was “hugely ahead” in his effort to beat DeSantis and that any effort to portray the numbers as closing was “just their (Team DeSantis) argument.”

  • I liked her before but if she is going to be backstabbing Trump just because Fake Fox News owner demands that his employees say bad things about Trump than Trump has all the right to say whatever he wants about her.

  • Trump did great things, but I'm thinking his ego is getting in the way of his campaign.
    No one can do anything right but him and he can do no wrong.

  • From the very beginning I knew this so-called feud between Trump and DeSantis supporters is a ploy to divide and conquer. Don't fall for this! The left wants Team Trump and team DeSantis hating each other. They purposely ramp up this "feud" to dilute our votes!

  • Trump Lashes Out At Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany, Former Appointee

    So the question now begs to be seriously asked:

    • Is she under the FOX "step in line anti-Trump stance?
    • Was she lying all those times as Press Secretary?

    Sad .. very sad.

    So why did she cave with wrong numbers in relationship to Trump ... yes she is on FOX which has made it clear they are ANTI-TRUMP ....

    So it's not a matter of "Loyalty" to me ...

    • It's a matter of character - is she a pawn of FOX or???
  • That's nice. Donnie is going to prison, because he's an idiot and can't keep his mouth shut. Case in point going on a CNN town hall and making the federal special prosecutor in the classified docs case for him even as his lawyers are desperately trying to spin the story that the docs were obtained by accident. As they are doing that, Donnie is saying the opposite to millions of viewers. WTF does Donnie even hire lawyers for if he is just going to undermine everything they do with his big mouth?

  • she should know better that if your going to lie about something with the wrong numbers no matter who you are TRUMP will call your ass out like he did with Kayleigh..she worked with TRUMP in the whitehouse..she knows that no one gets special treatment..if you mess up TRUMP will call your ass out like he just did with Kayleigh..she knows better to always tell the one who is honest(TRUMP0 is going to call out something that is wrong(desantis) will never beat TRUMP..big difference..TRUMP ISNOT CORUPPT...desantis isnot honest..desantis is a wolf in sheeps clothing..desantis is A RINO IN always comes out the RINO's...

  • Unfortunately Mr. Dilley a lot of the Braindead will as usual use Trumps words against him. McEnany, has moved on and now works for a Company that recently started showing its " Wokeness " ( it actually started during Election night coverage ), and although she made it out she fully supported Trump, her real feelings are more in line with her ex-husband ( Founding member of the Lincoln project) are now coming out. She is now showing she is only loyal to whomever signs her paychecks !
