Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany chastised President Joe Biden for weighing in on the Derek Chauvin trial ahead of the verdict on Tuesday as she settled into her latest, and entirely predictable career as a Fox News contributor. Biden announced that he had met with George Floyd’s family during a short meeting with reporters. According to Mediaite, the president waited until the jury was sequestered before making a public statement: “They are a good family, and they’re calling for peace and tranquility no matter what that verdict is,” Biden said. “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict, which is, I think it’s overwhelming, in my view.”
McEnany chastised Biden for speaking on the Chauvin trial, despite working for Donald Trump, who is popular for tweeting his views on every subject under the sun and refusing to tell white nationalists to stand down as tensions rose throughout the 2020 presidential debates. “I think it’s the role of the president of the United States to stay back, to not inflame the tensions,” said Kayleigh McEnany – The press secretary for DONALD TRUMP.
“I’m glad he at least waited until the jury was sequestered, but I think that the country is such a tinderbox right now, especially in Minneapolis. There’s so much hurt and pain, and I think it’s the role of the president of the United States to stay back, to not inflame the tensions,” McEnany said via The Hill. McEnany, who continued to support Trump even after the former president personally inflamed the January 6 assault on the US Capitol building, demonstrates a high degree of concern. Of course, if McEnany admitted that she has since learned from Trump’s mistakes, her cautionary words would have a different effect.
