She knows the best way to shut down an extremist.
During a press conference, Kayleigh McEnany stated her support of President Trump calling for arrests for tearing down American statues.
McEnany was asked by PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor about the Trump administration’s thoughts about “Americans who find it offensive to glorify people who owned other Americans, including enslaved African Americans.”
McEnany said, “So I would note on statues, that what we’re seeing across the country is really quite confusing because you are seeing statues defaced – like Gandhi’s statue defaced and Ulysses S. Grant statues defaced and abolitionist Matthias Baldwin statues defaced. At the same time, we’re being told that the George Washington statue needs to come down, the Thomas Jefferson’s statue needs to come down. Where do you draw the line from Gandhi all the way to George Washington?”
Alcindor tried interrupting McEnany while she was speaking to say that the question was simply stating Confederate statues only, but McEnany brought up several polls showing that many Americans disagree with having statues taken down.
McEnany ended saying, “So I would point that out and I will say that when people watch these statue defacements and the beheading of some of these statues, like Christopher Columbus — where do you draw the line? because apparently the line goes all the way to Gandhi.”
