Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany weighed into President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for their continued silence following the arrest of an armed California man who has been charged with attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“Where is the media? And since the media won’t ask the question, I will: Where are you, President Biden? Where are you Vice President Kamala Harris?” the Fox News contributor said during an “Outnumbered” show segment on Thursday.
“Because I can tell you this, any time there was any form of violence or hatred or bigotry, I, as the press secretary, would be asked immediately by the media what the president’s stance on it was,” she continued.
“We’ve gotten the statement from the press secretary. We’ve gotten the statement from the deputy. What about the leader of the free world? And he had ample opportunity. He walked out on the South Lawn,” she continued, recounting how Biden walked away from reporters who asked him about it on Wednesday.
“The press is right there. Then you arrive at Joint Base Andrews. You pass the press on your way up the stairs. I think the ones he fell down, by the way, on his way up. Then he had that off the record,” she continued.
“You could have said, ‘Hey, guys, on the record really quick, I condemn the violence,'” she added.
“Then he had Jimmy Kimmel. Then you have the vice president giving a speech. That was five opportunities. We get silence from Joe and Kamala,” she noted.
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said that Attorney General Merrick Garland should resign in “disgrace” for failing to enforce a federal statute outlawing protests in front of judges and justices’ homes.
“There’s an explicit federal law against protesting in front of the homes of judges or jurors. Yet again, the feckless and hapless Attorney General Merrick Garland did nothing even though he had advanced knowledge,” he Fox News.
“He should resign in disgrace. And if he won’t resign in disgrace, then we should start impeachment proceedings against him in January when we are in control of Congress. Because the rule of law in this country must be enforced evenly, irrespective of one’s political parties and views,” he added.
He added on Twitter: “A Democratic hit man tried to kill Justice Kavanaugh today. Now, left-wing street militias have again announced their intent to protest his home in direct violation of federal law. Merrick Garland must arrest every single one tonight or resign in disgrace.”
