Presidential candidate Donald Trump called his former spokeswoman “Milktoast” and slammed her for giving out what he said were wrong polling numbers on FoxNews.
“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on FoxNews. I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up. While 25 is great, it’s not 34. She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll,” Trump wrote Tuesday evening on his social media site, Truth Social. “The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!”
Trump refers to Gov. Ron DeSantis as “DeSanctimonious.” DeSantis is his top challenger for the Republican nomination for president.
McEnany said on the “Jesse Watters Primetime” show that Trump’s lead over DeSantis had fallen from 34 points to 25 points in Iowa.
According to U.S. News, Trump leads the field of possible Republican presidential candidates in Iowa with 62% of voters’ support, compared with DeSantis’ 20%, a more than 42% difference.
However, an Emerson College survey show 49% of Iowa voters support Trump, with 38% supporting Biden in a general election. But if the general election had DeSantis vs. Biden, 45% would vote for DeSantis and 38% would vote for Biden.
She was Trump’s White House press secretary from April of 2020 to January of 2021 and was one of his fiercest defenders.
McEnany then went to Fox News, where she is a frequent guest host on The Ingraham Angle, Jesse Watters Primetime, The Five and Fox & Friends.
