Donald Trump demands the utmost loyalty from his acolytes. He doesn’t exactly reciprocate. Cross him or disappoint him in the slightest way and he will turn against you. That’s what Kayleigh McEnany learned. The former president’s fourth and final press secretary has been in Ron DeSantis’ tank since late last year, but it wasn’t until she claimed he wasn’t beating him that much in the polls. .
On Tuesday night, McEnany made an appearance on Jesse Watters Primetime, where she claimed Trump beat “only” DeSantis by 25 points. That was enough to drive Trump crazy enough to give him his own nickname.
“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave the wrong poll numbers on FoxNews,” Trump said. I’m 34 points ahead of DeSanctimonious, not 25. While 25 is great, it’s not 34. While 25 is great, it’s not 34. She knew the number was corrected at the increase by the group that did the survey. RINOS & Globalists can have it. FoxNews should only use REAL stars!!! »
Trump insinuating that she is a liar and not a ‘REAL’ star was one thing. But most people couldn’t get past the supposedly mean nickname: Did he mean to write “Milktoast” or does he really not know the word “milquetoast.”
Either way, people laughed at him.
Seriously, the “milk bread” thing made me spit my Gestapo soup

Some thought it was a weird insult.
Others remembered Trump’s past verbal gaffes, such as “hamberders.”
Many people say that Trump likes his “hamberders” served on “milk toast”. pic.twitter.com/7D3fp974Pv

There were jokes.
Some took it literally.
Some have argued that it was cruel of Trump to turn on McEnany given how often she lied for him.
A lunatic lunatic now attacks his former publicist for complete nonsense – a woman who lied for him like no other every day. He is crazy. pic.twitter.com/tFLmV9MLuv

Others argued that you shouldn’t feel bad for Kayleigh McEnany.
Make no mistake, Kayleigh “Milktoast” McEnany will enthusiastically vote for Trump if he is the Republican nominee of 2024.
So no, I don’t feel bad for her. pic.twitter.com/uTCjczQ8tt

Don’t feel bad for Milktoast McEnany. She happily worked for a terrorist regime and psychopathically spewed murderous election lies and medical conspiracies from the nation’s highest podium, and never apologized for any of it. She gets what she deserves! She pays the MAGA price

Later that evening, guest Chip Roy appeared to reference the dust on his face.
