Kayleigh McEnany Accused Of Racist Remark

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Leftists who thought they had gotten rid of a well-liked conservative provocateur who doesn’t bow to the establishment with the ousting of Tucker Carlson, are seething over who his fill-in host for this coming week is going to be.

Starting on Monday, Kayleigh McEnany, who held the position of press secretary for the Trump administration for ten months, will have a weeklong trial run in the very visible 8 p.m. Eastern time slot.

The network is looking for a replacement for Carlson, who was fired on April 24 following revelations that he made racist remarks, promoted a plot involving the uprising on January 6, 2021, and texted disapproving messages to Fox News reporters who fact-checked the network’s false claims of election fraud even though he did not agree with them.

The Los Angeles Times wrote with disdain for McEnany while also accusing her of being racist, much like Carlson was accused of. “There are no signs Fox News is giving up on provocative and inflammatory viewpoints in the hour. McEnany comes in with a head start on creating controversy as she made a racially offensive crack Friday on ‘Outnumbered,’ the Fox News daytime show where she is a co-host,” the publication reported.

It’s impossible to imagine what devout a Christian like McEnany could possibly say that would be deserving of such a disgusting allegation of racism. However, it doesn’t take anything at all, it’s all whatever the left perceives it to be.

According to the Los Angeles Times, McEnany is racist for making a remark about protesters’ drum beats.

“McEnany introduced a discussion of a New York City protest over the May 1 killing of a Black homeless man by a Marine veteran on a subway train. Jordan Neely, 30, who had a history of mental illness and multiple arrests for assault, ranted and allegedly terrorized passengers before the veteran put him in a choke hold that police have determined caused his death,” the article explained, giving background to what led up to the alleged disparaging comment that came next.

“After coming out of video showing a drum-beating mixed-race crowd chanting about Neely’s death, McEnany said ‘Justice or burn it down — well at least they have rhythm,’ evoking a stereotype about Black people,” the report read.

It didn’t take long for detractors on Twitter to become collectively outraged over an otherwise innocuous comment. Many claimed that it demonstrated McEnany’s willingness to appeal to the MAGA audience members who have abandoned Carlson since the host was fired.

McEnany said via a Fox News representative that she was unaware of the protesters’ ethnic composition. She claimed that while watching the program, she heard singing in her ear.

Following Carlson’s firing, Fox News has lost more than half of the 3 million+ people who were watching him throughout the hour and has seen dips all throughout prime time.

According to Nielsen, the network continues to be the most popular cable news channel, beating MSNBC and CNN.

McEnany was hired by Fox News in March 2021. She was the third on-air talent to receive a tryout under Carlson’s tenure.
