CNN Trump propagandist becomes RNC Trump propagandist

Posted August 08, 2017

McEnany called the segment "the real news". On Aug. 5, she announced that she was leaving CNN but did not say where she was going.

Kayleigh McEnany has spent most of the Trump presidency lending credence to the mogul's claim that CNN is "fake news".

McEnany concluded the report, "And that is the real news". "Her wealth of experience will be invaluable to the RNC as we continue to support President Trump and build on our majorities in Congress as we head into 2018". (Watch it here.) Included was a segment on the record close of the stock market, with McEnany adding, "President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction".

During the video, McEnany touted the recent jobs report. She also talked about the RAISE act that the president introduced Wednesday, stating that for decades rises in immigration has seen the American workers wages decline. According to the network, she had requested her contract be terminated to take up the position.

"Wow. Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries", Michael McFaul, who served as the US ambassador to Russian Federation under President Barack Obama, wrote on Twitter. Comments left on the Facebook page reflect both ire from critics and praise from Trump supporters who like hearing the information straight from the Trump camp without "bias" from the liberal media.

Some have criticized the videos as political propaganda. Everyone agreed that McEnany's "real news" was not, in fact, news at all. In many cases, it is the only news available, so the public is only given information the state wants them to know, and many times it is full of factual errors or blatantly wrong.

President Donald Trump's verified Facebook page also posted the video, which featured McEnany touting Trump's few accomplishments in front of a background covered in campaign logos.
