Here’s more from The Hill:
Kayleigh McEnany is leaving President Trump’s reelection campaign to serve as the new White House press secretary, two sources confirmed on Tuesday.
The former Republican National Committee spokeswoman and the current spokeswoman for the Trump campaign will take over for outgoing press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
McEnany, 31, has long been a fierce defender of the president in television interviews and through the campaign. She was a frequent presence on the campaign trail, appearing at Trump rallies and participating in events for the group Women for Trump.
A formal announcement is expected later Tuesday.
We reported on McEnany being one of the two Meadows was considering for the job. I didn’t realize the pick would happen so quickly.
The media is, however, already hating on McEnany, with many of them quoting her from times where she’s defended the president in TV interviews.
