Kayleigh McEnany fired back after former President Barack Obama took aim at President Donald Trump and Republicans during a speech in Illinois.

Speaking at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Friday, the former president accused Trump of "capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”

Obama also said Trump is attempting to use the Justice Department as a “cudgel” to punish his political opponents and protect Republican lawmakers ahead of November's midterm elections.

On "Outnumbered Overtime," McEnany, a Republican National Committee spokesperson, called out Obama's "load of lies," arguing that the Trump administration is doing things the right way, while the Obama administration used "political apparatuses" to protect allies and target enemies.

She pointed to the infamous Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton tarmac meeting, which occurred as Hillary Clinton was being investigated over her private email server and raised questions of collusion between the Obama Justice Department and the Clintons.

She added that there are still unanswered questions about the IRS' targeting of conservative groups, in addition to questions about the Obama DOJ and FBI's role with the dossier and FISA surveillance of the Trump campaign.

"That was a load of lies," McEnany said of Obama's remarks. "This administration does things right. President Obama's administration used the political apparatuses to target individuals."

Former DNC official Jehmu Greene said many people around the world were eagerly awaiting Obama's re-entry into the political fray.

"I think the speech is really going to remind people of the country they've been sorely missing," she said.
