Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has dropped the hammer on the media over the political double standards expressed in the press.
During an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, McEnany blasted unequal treatment, saying there is “one standard for Democrats, there’s another for Republicans.”
“There’s one standard for Democrats, there’s another for Republicans,” McEnany told Hannity.
“You see it all the time in the press with coverage of President Trump.
“For instance, any act of violence I was asked about over and over, even if it had no tie to our party.
“Look at the Left, they can go out and say nothing about the Kavanaugh assassination, yes, the press secretary did, and the president didn’t.
“There’s always one standard for the left and another for the right, Sean.
“That’s just common sense and we know that at this point.”
McEnany joined Hannity on a segment to discuss the Justice Department’s decision to not charge members of Stephen Colbert’s staff with “unlawful entry” of the U.S. Capitol.
A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office said:
“After a comprehensive review of all of the evidence and the relevant legal authority, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has determined that it cannot move forward with misdemeanor charges of unlawful entry against the nine individuals who were arrested on June 16, 2022 at the Longworth Office Building.
“The individuals, who entered the building on two separate occasions, were invited by Congressional staffers to enter the building in each instance and were never asked to leave by the staffers who invited them, though, members of the group had been told at various points by the U.S. Capitol Police that they were supposed to have an escort.
“The Office would be required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these invited guests were guilty of the crime of unlawful entry because their escort chose to leave them unattended.
“We do not believe it is probable that the Office would be able to obtain and sustain convictions on these charges.
“The defendants no longer will be required to appear for a scheduled hearing in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on July 20, 2022,” the statement said.
According to Fox News:
“The staffers were charged with unlawful entry after being found acting ‘disruptive, loud’ and ‘theatrical’ near the office of Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., in the Longworth House Office Building as they recorded comedy skits for the Late Show around 8:30 p.m. on June 16.
“Earlier in the day, the group had conducted interviews with members of the Jan. 6 Select Committee, Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla, as well as Rep. Jake Auchincloss, D-Mass.
“They were eventually escorted out of the Cannon House Office Building, where the Jan. 6 committee was conducting its hearing, because they didn’t have proper press credentials.
“Sources tell Fox News that an aide to Auchincloss let them back into the House office buildings around 4:00 p.m. and they were left unattended for several hours.”
