McEnany Blasts Media's Stormy Obsession: Goal Is to 'Take Down This President'
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said that the media is attempting to hurt President Trump with its coverage of his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.
"The media's goal is to distract and destroy this president," McEnany said on "Fox & Friends." "If it's not Stormy Daniels, it's Russia collusion or the dossier -- funded by Democrats. Their goal is to take down this president and distract from all his successes."
"It's not working. It's backfiring because the American people recognize the successes of this president," McEnany said, pointing to tax cuts, deregulation, the retreat of ISIS and the possible meeting with North Korea.
Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov said this isn't just a salacious story about Trump's alleged affair with a porn star, explaining that Daniels received "hush money" and has alleged that she was threatened to remain silent about her purported 2006 sexual encounter with Trump.
"And, according to lawyer, we're going to learn more about that," Tarlov said.
McEnany said the fact is that some people can't stand that Trump is succeeding, so they "manufacture stories" and blast them out in the mainstream media.
"People can't stand that this president has no morality. That's very different," Tarlov fired back.
