Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is promoting former Vice President Mike Pence, Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis, and her former boss Donald Trump, declaring “we are all on the same team” – a point of view not shared by any of the three men she named.
“The final factor I think, was abortion that certainly did motivate the left,” McEnany said in her Fox News gig Thursday, discussing Tuesday’s election results that highly favored Democrats.
“But I would agree with former Vice President Pence,” she continued. “He says that ‘the rule of law matters’ and the rule of law was not right in Roe – we saw even RBG criticized that, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Laurence Tribe and he said that Roe v. Wade in overturning it ‘was profoundly more important than any short term politics,’” she said, quoting Pence.
(Tribe, the noted, now retired, Harvard law professor, objected to be cited in Justice Alito’s decision overturning Roe.)
“The victory that happened over the summer was a victory for the rule of law. And it is far more enormous than any slight margin in the House could have been,” she declared, suggesting that depriving women of bodily autonomy is even.more important, at least to Republicans, than gaining a majority in the House of Representatives.
“So we’ve got to look the long game – abortion’s going to go away,” she declared, despite every indication that that is not going to happen unless Republicans can take both the House, Senate, and the White House.
“We’ve got to be smart. Let’s not have infighting in our party. I would like to see us get back to Reagan’s 11th commandment: ‘Thou shalt not attack a fellow Republican.’”
“We are all on the same team – got to be on the same team going to Georgia. Would love to see DeSantis and Trump on a stage together if they choose to go that would be very helpful for the party,” McEnany said, appearing to bend to what some say is Rupert and or Lachlan Murdoch’s apparent decree that Trump is to be downplayed and DeSantis is to be elevated.
