Kayleigh McEnany says something intelligent, but still has blind spots

The first time I saw Kayleigh McEnany on TV, she impressed me as a twit, and my opinion of her hasn’t changed much. She currently works as a Fox News propagandist, which is an appropriate placement for her. She doesn’t belong in respectable journalism. Even though I pronounce her name &#[...]
