It’s been a breath of fresh air not having to hear the incessant lies and stupidity that tumble from the mouth of one Kayleigh McEnany, the former press secretary to Donald Trump. But a kerfluffle on Twitter last night made it clear that she hasn’t made any progress or improvements since leaving office, instead showing the world that she either cannot or will not read a chart before spouting out her presupposed assumption.
McEnany quote-tweeted a post from Axios writer Lachlan Markay, who commented on the grim rise in the murder rate that occurred during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. There’s a wide variety of reasons for the alarming spike, which include pandemic fatigue, COVID-induced economic and social strain, and a sharp rise in firearm purchasing. But in the simple THING HAPPEN DEMOCRAT BAD mindset of the moronic Trump right-wing, this clearly was President Biden’s fault, and the issue was as simple as that.
Except this was last year’s murder rate, in which President Trump was the president and McEnany worked in the White House. She eventually deleted the tweet, but never posted an apology or correction — which unfortunately is par for the course for one of America’s most prolific liars.
So, @kayleighmcenany has deleted this tweet, which showed 2020's spike in the murder rate under her then-boss President Trump. She falsely blamed Biden. She hasn't posted a correction or apologized to her followers. pic.twitter.com/zs4ypaOQSA

Social media still had a good time calling her out for it:
Kayleigh McEnany forgot who was president in 2020 even though she was working for him. pic.twitter.com/ccHGJfnEoh
