When new White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany talks about her boss, she typically means Donald Trump. But ultimately, McEnany claims, she’s all about serving the other Master — God Himself.
“They’re calling you a lot of names out there,” CBN’s David Brody told McEnany during a recent interview. “You said you will not lie and they are calling you a liar and they’re calling you other names: racist and birther and all that type of stuff.”
“I know the person I am,” McEnany replied. “I know what I stand for. And I stand as a Christian woman, someone who believes in equality and truth and loyalty and honesty. It’s the values I’ve lived by my whole life.”
Loyalty, I can believe. Equality, truth, and honesty, fuck no. News One dug up some of McEnany’s old tweets, which happen to be full of racist dog whistles, birtherism, and general hypocrisy. (One example of the latter is McEnany scoffing at Barack Obama for going golfing when there was governing to be done — a charge she will no doubt fail to lob at her current jefe, who spends way more time on the greens than his predecessor.)
“People will malign you,” she continued. “It comes with the job but I know who I’m ultimately working for and it’s the Big Guy upstairs. And my mission in life is that when I pass that He will look at me and say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’”
“My faith is huge to me. I begin the day immersed in my faith, whether it’s listening to Christian music, or reading a devotional, or listening to a sermon. I couldn’t get through this job, this really hard job, without my faith.”
Maybe it’s a shortcoming on my part, but I have my hackles up immediately when Christians on either side of the aisle insist on having others believe how honest they are… just because they believe in Jesus. I don’t reckon I’ll soon forget former DNC chair Donna Brazile responding like this to a critical question about a proven lie she’d told:
“As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted.”
These holier-than-thou twits imagine they make God proud by lying. As with anyone else, if they want us to believe they’re good and honest, words are meaningless. They’ll have to show us with their choices, their actions — including the things they do when they think no one’s looking. That‘s character.
Anything less is badly perfumed crapola that only becomes more noisome as they coat it in their fetid, futile Jesus fluff.
