Fox News was quick to cover the story reporting this:
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed she tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday morning and will start the “quarantine process,” becoming the latest person in President Trump’s orbit to get the virus.
“After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms,” McEnany said in a statement. “No reporters, producers, or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.”
Other White House staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 at this point include McEnany, senior adviser Hope Hicks and director of Oval Office operations Nick Luna. Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien also tested positive for COVID-19.
Former counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has also tested positive and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who participated in debate prep with the president, did too and was admitted to the hospital over the weekend.
In her statement, McEnany defended her decision to hold a press briefing last week the same day Hicks tested positive. The White House Correspondents Association has said several journalists have also tested positive.
“I definitively had no knowledge of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday,” McEnany said, adding that “as an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time.”
Liberals wasted no time taking shots at the White House Secretary:
Yet another reason I have ZERO empathy for pathological liar Kayleigh McEnany. https://t.co/FZCRDmxUkN
