While speaking at Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit this week, Kayleigh McEnany said that she “never lied” during her time as former President Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary.
During her speech, McEnany recalled being asked at her very first press briefing as press secretary if she would ever lie to the American people.
“And I said without hesitation, ‘no,’ and I never did,” McEnany recounted. “As a woman of faith, as a mother of baby Blake, as a person who meticulously prepared at some of the world’s hardest institutions, I never lied. I sourced my information.”
McEnany went on to say that when she took the job, she knew the press would call her a liar even though she always made sure to source her information.
“My dad said, ‘Kayleigh, you’ve got to come up with a motto for your press shop.’ And I did. And our motto was this: Offense only,” McEnany said. “Because I knew what we were up against. Republicans always get the bad headlines, always get the false stories, always get the lies, if I can use that word told by the press.”
