Kayleigh McEnany Throws Trump Under The Bus – Pays The Price BIG TIME

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

Kayleigh McEnany, a former Trump staffer and current Fox News host, stated that the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday was “relatively favorable” for President Joe Biden. This remark prompted a late-night criticism from former President Donald Trump.

McEnany participated in Fox News Channel’s coverage of the New Hampshire primary, which concluded shortly after polls closed. Trump emerged as the winner with a margin that can be described as both convincing and substantial, ranging from high single digits to low double digits. However, President Biden achieved an even more decisive triumph by receiving a far higher number of votes as a candidate who was not officially endorsed in the state’s Democratic primary.

McEnany provided Trump with valuable counsel on modifying his demeanor, utilizing exit poll data to illustrate that Biden is not estranging people in the same manner that Trump did.

BRET BAIER: Kayleigh. You know, in the close, it seemed like the Trump campaign was pretty disciplined. They hit the immigration issue a lot at his rallies. And we saw his pitch at the town hall and the speech in Iowa.

This was a different speech. You know, he is a fighter. He punches back. He obviously didn’t like the speech he heard from Nikki Haley.

But he’s also, at some point has to get into general election, going after independents and maybe disaffected Democrats. And this speech probably wasn’t that.

KAYLEIGH MCENANY: No, this speech was a speech to dispose of the last remaining competitor, if you could call it that. She still significantly behind him. He’s pulling a majority support.

But to get her out of the race, I would suggest that adopting a general election tone is what you do at this point. And here’s why I say this.

This was actually a fairly good night for Joe Biden. When you look at our voter analysis, only 10% said “I would not vote for Joe Biden if he’s the nominee.”.

He won a plurality of voters who said he was too old. He won a majority of voters who are upset about the Gaza war. So the divides in the Democrat Party, and this is a small sample size, but perhaps aren’t as stark as one would think.

But when you look at the Republican Party, 7 in 10 Nikki Haley voters said “I would not vote for Trump.”.

There was a Des Moines Register poll. 43% said, no, I wouldn’t vote for Trump.

If I’m Trump, I sit back and I exclusively focus on the general election. I take the posture of a presumptive nominee. I focus on number one, uniting the party and number two, winning the independents, which Nikki Haley won 55 to 39%. That’s what I would do.

Nikki Haley I mean, the closest margin is 30% in the States ahead. For all intents and purposes, he’s the presumptive nominee.

Her former supervisor reacted negatively on social media, expressing anger by labeling her as a “RINO” and advising her to direct her counsel towards someone else named Nikki.
