Kayleigh McEnany clashes with CNN reporter over Biden tweet
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was slammed on-air by CNN anchor Jim Sciutto after he called her out for a awful tweet about former Vice President Joe Biden.
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has gotten into a physical altercation with a CNN reporter after she made fun of former Vice President Joe Biden on Twitter.
Ms McEnany targeted one of Mr Biden's remarks during his town hall appearance on CNN, where he shared his fondness for children over the general population.
He made this statement while speaking to Anderson Cooper, who was hosting the event, indicating that he would rather "enjoy being at home with the baby".
Ms. McEnany singled out the tweet, in which he says, "Everyone knows I love kids better than people. That's what makes me fit to be President."
Many people saw her tweet as a reference to QAnon, a far-right conspiracy organization that claims the Democrats are a Satanic pedophile network.
A former White House colleague of Ms. McEnany's told CNN's Jake Tapper that her remark was “100% intended to stir up the QAnon crowd.”
According to one of Mike Pence's former aides, Ms. McEnany's remarks were "dangerous" and "pathetic."
“Even for Kayleigh McEnany's standards, this is pathetic,” she tweeted.
“Additionally, it's dangerous due to the #Trump movement's conspiracies, but you already know that, Kayleigh, and you don't care.”
Nevertheless, the former Trump press secretary denied that her tweet was about the QAnon culture, saying that anyone who wants to make allegations of that sort should put their name on the record.
We find a strange, revealing quote from former Vice President Joe Biden about his grotesquely pro-choice, anti-child policies that dehumanize life (such as the Mexico City Policy).
The normal practice is to "cc: @jaketapper: her name should be recorded if she claims to know the intent of my tweets."
Ms McEnany's explanation notwithstanding, it seemed that many people in the QAnon conspiracy interpreted her declaration as a sign of support.
McEnany is one of the most dangerously intelligent public speakers I have ever seen. I'm happy to see she's on our side. If she were a baddie, we'd be fucked. “God bless her,” said one QAnon believer on Vice's major message board, according to Vice.
It was also branded as “pretty significant” by another consumer.
It suggests that this is something the higher-ups have realized and have put serious effort into, as shown by the fact that the conviction is not confined to the common folk, the user wrote.
Another said: “Fantastic that when the media is trying to make fun of us for believing the pedophile claims, Kayleigh defends us by bringing this to light.”
According to the FBI, citizens who adhere to the depraved QAnon theory have been considered “conspiracy theory-driven domestic terrorists”.
The group of people who call themselves QAnon adherents were among those who took part in the violent protests in Washington, D.C. on January 6, which led to five deaths, including a police officer.
One of the rioters pictured during the storming of the Capitol, who went by the nickname the QAnon Shaman, was one of the convicted.
Following the attack, Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, was arrested after being pictured wearing a horned headdress and carrying a spear.
According to a report which emerged following the riot, Mr Chansley mentioned that he possessed the ability to combat pedophiles in other "dimensions".
His comment during an event in Arizona last year went something like this: “As a shaman, I am like a multidimensional or hyper-dimensional being, OK.”
He said he could "see into these other higher dimensions that these entities – these pedophiles, rapists, and extremely powerful people – occupy."
