FOX News Announces Widely Anticipated Signing of Ex-Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany

(Headline USA) In a widely anticipated move, Fox News said Tuesday that it had signed former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany as a contributor to offer commentary on various network programs.

McEnany, former President Donald Trump’s final press secretary, didn’t speak about her new role during an interview with Fox’s Harris Faulkner that aired Tuesday.

It was reported in January that McEnany had disclosed to the U.S. Office of Government Ethics while still in office that she would work for Fox after leaving the White House. Fox said at the time that it had been in discussions with McEnany but had paused them.

Before working for Trump, McEnany was a commentator at CNN.

While at the White House, McEnany frequently appeared on Fox News programs for interviews.

She said Tuesday that her biggest regret at the White House was not being able to hold a briefing outlining all the accomplishments of the Trump administration.

“But after Jan. 6, it just was not tenable,” she said.

She said that “everyone in the administration was horrified” by the Jan. 6 Capitol uprising, ostensibly led by a small group of militarized Trump supporters, although evidence indicated that radical leftist groups like Antifa had planned in advance to infiltrate the rally.

Once the barricades were breached, others were admitted into the building by Capitol police, where they politely and respectfully filed through the velvet ropes in Statuary Hall, linking the two legislative chambers.

Democrats, nonetheless, suggested that their lives had been imperiled by the threat—and have sought to accuse election-deniers of insurrection and sedition.

But McEnany insisted that the rabble who forced their way into the Capitol did not represent the former president’s backers.

Asked if she believed Trump bore any responsibility for the riot, she said, “No, I don’t.”
