Color me gobsmacked. Raw Story is reporting that Kayleigh McEnany went out of her way to shoot down rumors about Hunter Biden having been the culprit that left the baggie of cocaine in the White House. But I think I have divined the reason.
President Joe Biden’s son, who has candidly discussed his past crack cocaine addition, was not at the White House when the drug was found Sunday, but he had been there Friday and then joined other family members there on the Fourth of July, but McEnany cited her own experience there to knock down the rumors, reported Newsweek.
“There is no way. It is inconceivable to think cocaine can sit [at the White House] for a 72-hour period,” McEnany said. “So I would rule him out at this point.”
This is going in direct contravention of what Donald Trump said, which is printed right below. That is why I can’t believe my eyes here. Unless this is McEnany’s revenge for the Milquetoast crack and she’s openly defying Trump. Wow.
“Does anybody really believe that the COCAINE found in the West Wing of the White House, very close to the Oval Office, is for the use of anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden,” Trump posted on his Truth Social platform on Wednesday.
The cocaine was reportedly found in a public area where visitors enter the West Wing.
“It couldn’t have been there for days and days,” McEnany said on Fox & Friends. “It had to have been there for — I would say — minutes before someone took notice.”
I would love to know her motivation for saying this. It makes perfect sense and I’m sure it’s true. But why would McEnany risk the blowback that is certain to result from this? It’s got to be because she has split with Trump.
