‘Outnumbered’ co-host and former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany joined FOX and Friends Wednesday morning to discuss Biden’s record of poorly handling major disasters and his latest effort to erase student loan debt.
McEnany shared that Biden has been “tone deaf” when it comes to his handling of disasters, noting East Palestine in particular after the toxic train derailment left residents terrified and sick. McEnany said that even if he goes to East Palestine, she’s not so sure that Biden will even be welcomed there.
“There’s a frustration in this country towards this president, especially the way he treats disasters,” said McEnany, questioning whether his actions of going or not going to disaster sites has to do with politics.
The student loan debt forgiveness plan is part of Biden’s political ploy to get votes saying that he is “desperate to con young people to vote for him.” Even if his effort does not go through, he can say that he tried on the campaign trail, hoping that his effort is enough to gain support.
McEnany interviewed Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the aftermath of Hurricane Idalia which wiped out businesses and homes that were in the path of the storm. DeSantis’ response effort has been exceptional, said McEnany, who noted that 98% of power has been restored, and that 63 out 67 school districts have opened today and all will be opened by tomorrow. McEnany shared that DeSantis has received bipartisan praise for his handling of the hurricanes that have swept through the state of Florida.
