Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Thursday she didn’t need to a “ton of circling back” with reporters because of the access afforded her by former President Donald Trump, in a reference to successor Jen Psaki’s go-to line when she can’t directly answer questions.
Reacting to a “Fox & Friends” montage of Psaki saying she would “circle back” with various reporters during her six weeks with the Biden White House, McEnany said she had the advantage of knowing where Trump stood on issues.
“I wish Jen Psaki all the best, it is a very hard job but that being said, we took great pains in our administration to do hours and hours of research beforehand, days sometimes,” she said.
“I always knew where my boss stood. Unlike other press secretaries who maybe didn’t have walk-in privileges, I could walk in at any time … I always knew where his head was at, so I didn’t have to a ton of circling back because President Trump gave a lot of access to me.”
