Kayleigh McEnany Calls Out Hypocritical Democrats For Breaking Lockdown Rules

"Rules for thee, but not for me" is apparently the motto for Democrat leaders during coronavirus lockdown.


Kayleigh McEneny has been both amazing and ruthless during her tenure as White House Press Secretary.

On Wednesday McEneny called out several Democrats for the hypocrites that they truly are.

During a press event, she played a video of several prominant democrats breaking lockdown.

The video included the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsom, Lori Lightfoot, and even Chris Cuomo.

The same people telling Americans what they can and cannot do are not leading by example.

With more details about the press event, here's the Daily Caller:

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany lambasted Democrats for “hypocrisy” on their coronavirus lockdown measures during a Wednesday press conference, playing footage of prominent Democrats violating social distancing on a loop.

McEnany also praised the U.S. Supreme Court for deciding in favor of religious groups in New York who sued the state over its limits on attendance at religious services. Numerous prominent Democrats have been seen flaunting their own lockdown measures across the country, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and many more.

Reporters questioned McEnany as to why guests at Trump’s White House Christmas party Tuesday evening didn’t follow social distancing rules either. McEnany argued that Democrats had little standing to criticize.

Notable among the rule breakers in the video was CNN's very own Chris Cuomo.

McEnany pulled no punches in criticizing Governor Andrew Cuomo's younger brother as Fox News reports:

However, one non-politician that was included in the montage was the prominent CNN anchor, who staged his own reemergence from his basement quarantine during his recovery from the coronavirus after the New York Post reported that he was involved in a heated confrontation with a cyclist who called out Cuomo after spotting him outside without a mask in the Hamptons.

McEnany mocked Cuomo's "made for television moment," stressing that it came after he was caught "breaking his brother, Gov. Cuomo's quarantine rules" after months of urging CNN viewers to follow CDC guidelines and shaming those who don't.

"Quite clearly, these Democrats do not follow their own edicts," McEnany told reporters. "They act in a way that their own citizens are barred from acting... These images behind me make clear Democrats' mindset: rules for thee but not for me."

This isn't the first time McEnany called out Cuomo during a press briefing. Back in August, the press secretary slammed the CNN anchor over his dismissive coverage of the violence that took place in cities across the country amid civil unrest over the summer.

"Chris Cuomo saying, 'Show me where it says that protesters are supposed to be peaceful.' I'll give you an idea, Chris. It's in the Constitution," McEnany swiped the anchor.
