Ex-CNN Commentator Kayleigh McEnany Suddenly Pops Up On Trump’s Facebook Page

A day after taking to Twitter announcing that she was no longer with CNN, it appears we now know what political pundit Kayleigh McEnany’s new gig is — anchoring short pro-Trump news videos as part of the president’s 2020 re-election campaign.

This morning, the following clip showed up on President Donald Trump’s Facebook page:

In the campaign ad/news broadcast, McEnany touts recent jobs numbers, the RAISE Act and a Medal of Honor ceremony. At the end of the 90-second video, McEnany thanked the audience for joing her before sigining out by stating “that’s the real news.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this “real news” program associated with Trump as it has previously been hosted by the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump.

During today’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter brought up the Facebook video, highlighting how it is an ad dressed up as news.

“Looks like a newscast, has the graphical appearance, it sounds like a newscast,” Stelter stated. “But it’s a promotional effort either for the Donald Trump re-election campaign or the Republican National Committee.”

Mediaite has been told by sources close to the situation that McEanany asked out of her contract with CNN.
