She’s not messing around.
According to The Daily Wire, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed Portland mayor Ted Wheeler for his recent remarks stating that the leftist activists at protests could be lethal, claiming “It took him 73 days I suppose to come up with that realization.”
McEnany recollected, “Finally, one thing I want to leave you guys with is that 18 days ago, Mayor Ted Wheeler tweeted, ‘What I saw last night in Portland was powerful in many ways. I listened, heard and stood with protesters and I saw what it means when the federal government unleashes paramilitary forces against its own people.’”
“He in fact called our federal agents paramilitary forces, and around this same time our federal officers were facing rioters barricading officers inside the courthouse, trapping officers inside, launching of commercial-grade fireworks, a federal agent’s hand was impaled by planted nails, three officers were likely, were at least temporarily I should say, blinded when a laser was put in their eyes. This has been an ongoing tactic by the rioters,” McEnany continued.
“That was 18 days ago when Mayor Wheeler stood with the rioters and against the ‘paramilitary forces,’ but just four days ago, it appears Mayor Wheeler had a change of heart as local officers took over the situation in Portland and he now — I guess this is what he believes now: ‘When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating; you are attempting to commit murder.’” You can watch a clip of McEnany’s remarks here.
