Fox News Hosts Turn On Trump After Recent Tirade Targeting Former Press Sec.

The Fox News team is defending former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she became the subject of Trump’s

“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on FoxNews,” Trump wrote in a Tuesday post on Truth Social, “I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up. While 25 is great, it’s not 34”

“She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll,” he claimed. “The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!”

Shortly before Trump’s post, McEnany — a co-host of Fox News’ Outnumbered — had appeared on Fox News’ Jesse Watters Primetime, where she said that Trump’s 2024 Republican primary rival Ron DeSantis appeared to be closing in on the former president in Iowa.

“The DeSantis team would say, you know, ‘We just had polling come out that shows we closed the gap by 9 points since we announced in Iowa.’ Still, Trump’s hugely ahead, but they say they’re closing the gap. That’s their argument,” said McEnany, who served as Trump’s press secretary between April 2020 and January 2021.

“If you look at the polling now, it was Trump 34 in Iowa, it’s now Trump 25,” she continued. “That’s double digits.”

On Wednesday, Brian Kilmeade didn’t hold back from criticizing Trump’s decision to lash out at his former press secretary.

“Three shots at common weaknesses of the president,” Kilmeade said while discussing “some subtle shots at Trump,” he saw the Florida Governor make during a Tuesday stump speech in Iowa.

“They see you make things up. They say he’s he flies off the handle. For example, attacking Kayleigh McEnany is insane. She was one of the best press secretaries ever. Dana Perino, as Ari Fleischer watching to say she was fantastic, but she’s an analyst now. She doesn’t work for any campaign.”

A number of Fox News officials also knocked Trump for his attack on McEnany.

“This is pathetic. I don’t care who you are. This is unacceptable and unhinged,” reacted Blaze TV host Chad Prather. “[McEnany] took bullets for this man. We have a guy in the White House destroying the country and you go after her?!?!? It’s becoming an absolute joke.”
