Kayleigh McEnany slams ‘fawning’ media in response to news of Annie Leibovitz profile of Jen Psaki


Former Trump spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany slammed an upcoming profile of Press Secretary Jen Psaki by photojournalist Annie Leibovitz, saying that women in the Trump administration weren’t given the same treatment by the press.

Leibovitz, the widely acclaimed American portrait photographer, was spotted in the White House on Thursday.

It is believed that she was there to snap pictures of Psaki, President Biden’s top spokesperson, as part of a profile that will likely appear in an upcoming issue of Vogue.

Psaki’s predecessor, McEnany, who now works as a Fox News political commentator, wondered on Friday why she and other women in the Trump administration weren’t granted similar coverage.

‘Instead of the glowing profiles, there were hit pieces repeatedly, time and time again,’ McEnany said during her appearance on the Friday edition of the midday talk show Outnumbered.

‘It’s just so sad that you have a fawning press corps like this, a fawning media sycophantically covering members of the Biden administration,’ McEnany said.

‘They asked Jen Psaki yesterday about Joe Biden’s cat. I mean, it’s incredible the kinds of questions that they ask.

‘We need investigative journalism. We don’t need fawning coverage.

‘It doesn’t do the American people any justice.’

McEnany said that The New York Times sent photographers to Trump campaign headquarters to profile the women working to help the Republican get elected.

But she claims that the newspaper declined to run a story because ‘it wasn’t negative enough.’

Last year, New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman posted a tweet praising a senior Biden campaign official, Jen O’Malley Dillon, for juggling her career with motherhood.

‘Putting aside everything else, it is rare to hear a woman speaking unapologetically and unselfconsciously about life having kids and an intense job,’ Haberman tweeted.

‘The kind of thing men aren’t often asked to think twice about but women are always expected to.’

McEnany replied to Haberman’s tweet by posting a photo of herself at the White House pushing a stroller with her young daughter in it.

On Fox News on Friday, she told her fellow Outnumbered panelists that Haberman and other media figures declined to note that working moms under then-President Trump were not mentioned for experiencing similar challenges.

‘Sarah [Sanders] was a working mom. Stephanie Grisham was. I was, and Morgan Ortagus was pregnant during her final year at the State Department, but Maggie Haberman seemed to have forgotten that,’ McEnany said.

Ortagus, who worked for Trump in the State Department, agreed with McEnany.

‘I think maybe I just have come to accept that we’re not going to get the same sort of accolades,’ Ortagus said during the show.

‘Kayleigh, your daughter, one day, whether you were in Vogue or not, is going to be able to see these pictures of you working at the White House, taking her around in her carriage.

‘And I think that is worth more than 20 profiles.’

McEnany replied: ‘I had one goal: Elevate the forgotten men and women.

‘And that is a legacy that I’m very proud of. No Vogue profile necessary here.’

On Twitter, McEnany was blasted for being jealous of her successor. Lindy Li tweeted: 'Propaganda Minister Kayleigh McEnany is upset over the great press Jen Psaki is getting...But she didn’t seem upset at all over the disastrous Trump regime or the fact that our Capitol was invaded by their mob...Weird.'

Outnumbered co-host Emily Campagno said that while there was nothing wrong with women in the Biden administration receiving positive press, it was worth ‘pointing out the media’s unfair coverage of all of the hardworking women in the Trump administration.’

On Twitter, McEnany was blasted for being jealous of her successor.

Haberman tweeted: ‘McEnany, still complaining her personal press coverage wasn’t good enough, several months out.’

Lindy Li tweeted: ‘Propaganda Minister Kayleigh McEnany is upset over the great press Jen Psaki is getting…But she didn’t seem upset at all over the disastrous Trump regime or the fact that our Capitol was invaded by their mob…Weird.’

Another Twitter user commented: ‘Kayleigh McEnany is jealous that Jen Psaki gets so much better press coverage.’

Bruce Strickland wrote: ‘Here’s a theory: Psaki is a lot better at the job and she doesn’t lie.’

Another Twitter user referred to the former White House press secretary as ‘Kayleigh McEnvy.’

John Pavlovitz tweeted at McEnany: ‘You got bad press because you lied for a living on behalf of a racist, traitorous sociopath, knowing thousands of people were dying every day and you were ensuring they would. 

‘Be grateful you’re not in prison.’
