McEnany on Thursday suggested Psaki, President Joe Biden’s press secretary, violated the Hatch Act, which bans government employees from political campaigning, when she said: “We’re going to do everything we can to help” Democratic Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe “and we believe in the agenda he’s representing.”
Psaki has faced other Hatch Act-related criticism as well.
McEnany, however, was reminded of her own outrageous conflicts of interest, such as serving as White House press secretary at the same time she was a Trump 2020 campaign adviser.
People on Twitter also dredged up other ways the Trump administration used public resources for politics, like hosting 2020 Republican National Convention events on the White House lawn.
“Seriously? Fuck off,” responded Mary Trump, the niece of Donald Trump who has become one of her uncle’s loudest critics.
MSNBC anchor Mehdi Hasan called McEnany out for “the shamelessness.”
