Kayleigh McEnany Compares Trump’s Church Photo-Op to Churchill
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany raised eyebrows on Wednesday when she credulously compared President Donald Trump’s photo-op at St. John’s Episcopalian Church this week to Winston Churchill surveying World War II bombing damage and George W. Bush throwing out the first pitch after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“The president wanted to send a powerful message that we won’t be overcome by looting, rioting and burning,” she declared. “This defines America. Standing by St. John’s Church was very important to America.”
She then directly compared Trump’s photo-op to other iconic imagery by world leaders during crises over the past decades.
“Through all of time, we’ve seen presidents and leaders across the world who have had leadership moments and powerful symbols for a nation to see at any given time to show a message of resilience and determination,” McEnany exclaimed. “Like Churchill. We saw him with the bombing damage. George W. Bush throwing out the ceremonial first pitch after 9-11 and Jimmy Carter putting on a sweater to encourage energy savings and George H.W. Bush signing the Americans with Disabilities Act flanked by two disabled Americans.”
