Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Kayleigh McEnany leaves White House after final two-minute press briefing following deadly Capitol riot”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Donald Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has packed up her office at the White House, days before president-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office, though she is expected to remain in the role until the president’s term ends on 20 January.

Her departure on Friday came more than a week after her final press conference which amounted to a two-minute statement in the wake of the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol, fuelled by the president’s pervasive lie that the 2020 election was “stolen” from his supporters.

She insisted that “those who violently besieged our Capitol are the opposite of everything this administration stands for" and that “those who are working in this building are working to ensure an orderly transition of power" - despite the president’s months-long refusal to commit to do so. The press secretary took no questions from the reporters in the room.

Following a career in right-wing cable news commentary, Ms McEnany was named the Republican National Committee’s national spokesperson in August 2017 before joining the Trump campaign as its national press secretary in 2019.

She entered the White House in April 2020 following the nine-month tenure of Stephanie Grisham, who did not hold a single press briefing.
