Donald Trump slammed for ‘Milktoast’ Kayleigh McEnany attack
Former President and current White House candidate Donald Trump has come under fire from right-wing critics after calling his former press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, “milktoast” on Tuesday. Trump’s comment was in response to McEnany reportedly underselling his Iowa polling lead over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis during a segment on “Outnumbered,” which McEnany co-hosts on Fox News. Following Trump’s comments, his former press secretary was praised by numerous conservative voices. Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Fox and Friends, said attacking McEnany was “insane,” while Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume called Trump’s post a “disgrace”.

However, she is now a Fox News contributor and does not work on any political campaign. Trump’s average lead in Iowa was 33 points on Wednesday, according to aggregator FiveThirtyEight.
