Kayleigh McEnany: Trump Doesn’t Need to Condemn Roseanne, He’s ‘Denounced Racism Categorically’

RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany doesn’t think President Donald Trump should have to speak out specifically about Roseanne Barr‘s racist remarks.

After all, at least according to McEnany, he has already “categorically denounced” racism.

Speaking to The Evening Edit‘s Liz MacDonald on Fox Business on Wednesday, McDonald first noted that MSNBC’s Joy Reid did not lose her job for homophobic posts alleged found on her blog before asking McEnany her thoughts on Trump not denouncing Trump’s racism.

“The president has come out multiple times saying he denounces all racism,” McEnany replied. “We all denounce racism, that would include the president.”

She then added Sanders is “spot on” when she points out the double standard in the media and that is to”denounce hate wherever we see it” rather than giving anti-Trumpers “free passes.”

The RNC spox then concluded that, “I don’t think the president has to go around calling out every single private citizen making denunciations…He’s denounced racism categorically, he’s said there is no place for it…that’s sufficient.”
