Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany claims ex-President Donald Trump is now truly “doing just fine” with out social media.
Trump railed towards and desperately tried to bypass his bans from a number of social media platforms — which for years he used to unfold conspiracy theories, amplify lies, sow division and assault enemies ― after he was booted for inciting the lethal U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
But McEnany, a newly minted contributor for Fox News, on Friday instructed Fox Business’ Stuart Varney that Trump now finds it “kind of freeing.”
“He said it was kind of freeing not to have Twitter. He had a lot of time on his hands. So I think he’s doing just fine without social media,” she said.
Social media customers had been skeptical about McEnany’s declare, given her historical past of mendacity on behalf of Trump and the ex-president’s well-documented love for Twitter particularly.
Twitter completely banned Trump from his favourite platform within the wake of the rebellion. Facebook’s oversight board is due soon to rule on the potential reinstatement of Trump’s account. YouTube stated Thursday it should elevate Trump’s suspension as soon as the danger of offline violence has diminished.
McEnany, in an obvious contradiction to her earlier feedback, then pivoted to the right-wing speaking level of so-called “cancel culture.”
“What a travesty, this cancel culture, this root someone out of the public square,” she instructed Varney, saying the bans weren’t about stopping violence however “about stopping Trump.”
