After announcing her exit as a CNN commentator on Saturday, Kayleigh McEnany appeared in a video on President Donald Trump’s Facebook page just one day later.

Broadcasting from Trump Tower, McEnany used the 90-second-long video titled “Weekly Update 8.6.17” to promote a pro-Trump agenda, praising the president for jobs, the economy, the Raise Act — his controversial “merit-based” immigration bill — and veterans. In the video, McEnany is positioned in front of a blue backdrop with the “Trump Pence” logo,, and white stars. A bar scrolls below, urging viewers to “stay up to date” on social media, and “Make America great again.”

“Americans deserve a raise, and President Trump is finally putting the American worker first,” she said in the video.

McEnany signs off the video by taking a dig at the traditional media, which Trump has targeted during his campaign and administration. “Thank you for joining us, everybody. I’m Kayleigh McEnany, and that is the real news,” she said.

McEnany, an outspoken Trump supporter, teased her new role in a tweet on Saturday. “While I have enjoyed my time at CNN, I will be moving to a new role,” she wrote. “Stay tuned next week.”

McEnany’s video can be viewed below.

    Don’t lay this on the people, whose votes (by margin over 3M) resisted this danger. This is pure money: Koch for the tax breaks, Breitbart neo-nazi minorities, and Evangelical DeVos-Prince foundations to take the nation’s liberty by misreading the Constitution in light of THEIR Biblical bigotry (like KKK did w/their Southern Baptist Bibles).

    Yes indeed:

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

      Notice how the cry babies have been repeating themselves for 10 months. They have yet to mention all the problems facing the average American CITIZEN, the reason why they lost.
      No, attacking the winner somehow relieves them in their mind of the burden of actually doing anything to fix this sinking ship.
      Keep up your crying it’s the easy way out of work.

    • Maisha Grinn says:

      Mike’s probably right, but that’s not good. Not at all.

    So glad she is gone from CNN. If Jeffrey Lord could go over to Trump TV and do some juggling it would be even better.

  4. Gail Stone says:

    Kayleigh and Kellyanne are the Bobsey twins of delusional news. And isn’t it cute that both of their names begin with a “K”.

    #BimboTV “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
    – Joseph Goebbels
    Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945

    Omg this is the best news I’ve heard in 8 yrs. the truth in news reporting direct from the source. Far out. Way to go. Finally. It’s about time somebody did something. Thank you. We can take some of the grimace off of our faces. Unbelievable.
    What a great idea. Not anything that most people would have thought of. Congratulations.

  7. Destin Judy says:

    This cannot be legal. And if it is, Congress needs to pass a law immediately limiting the complete mergence press and state. We are living in scary, boundless times, never before pushed.This admin isn’t willing to have regular open press briefings or read outs like all past Presidents, but THIS instead -North Korea style? NO. He signed up to be President, not create (another) TV show or expand his real estate empire.

    • Judy Newman says:

      Wait till he starts taking the NPR funds to pay for it. #BimboTV

      • Toni says:

        You’re an idiot. Everybody knows pbs/NPR is run on 85 percent private donations. Almost 1 m for kerger salary. She steals this for herself. Hire volunteers. You know like the volunteers they use for fund raising.

  8. Carl Baggins says:

    From Zucker’s Fake News to Trump. Smart lady.

  9. Tina Grant says:

    Goebbels would approve of his propaganda bullshit.

  10. Belinda bradberry says:

    A real joke more garbage

  11. scilynt says:

    Wow, just bypass CIA controlled mainstream corporate media to create in-house state propaganda. Kim Jung Un would be proud. Now he just needs to outlaw free press somehow and he can continue his attempted dictatorship without those pesky tattletales.

  12. LeonT says:

    I guess RT or InterTASS wasn’t hiring.

    Ah well, there’s plenty of other conservative propaganda mills out there for her.

    CNN is poison, flush that channel from your TV package, or just cut the cable entirely

    • Sam says:

      A list needs to be made of the
OWNERS of CNN, wapo, nyt, MSNBC,
all the losers in media.
Still crying about losing, publishing fake news, slanted , slandering, 1/2 truths, persecuting, never covering the real issues. That would be too much work.
      Not one publication covered the speech presenting the medal of valor.
That’s a disgrace to ALL of our CITIZENS. Not just the group that lost the election. Shame.

  15. Delta says:

    Smart move. Now she’s a winner.

  16. Mark says:

    An ignorant, no talent twit joins a fake news failure.

    • Next stop-anti vax videos!

    • Jason From says:

      No, she is leaving a fake news failure.

      • Maria says:

        @Jason CNN will survive without her. In fact they’ll survive without you too.

      • Low Rider says:

        @Jason…..Repealed obamacare, built the wall, lowered taxes, improved relations with Russia, Priebus, Spicer, Flyn, Scaramucci and the rest of the Gone in 60 Seconds crew…

        Gosh darn it, you’re right. That fake news is really awful.

      • LeonT says:

        Know it, love it, Jason:

        Epistemic closure[1] is a property of some belief systems. It is the principle that if a subject {\displaystyle S} S knows {\displaystyle p} p, and {\displaystyle S} S knows that {\displaystyle p} p entails {\displaystyle q} q, then {\displaystyle S} S can thereby come to know {\displaystyle q} q. Most epistemological theories involve a closure principle and many skeptical arguments assume a closure principle.

      • Mark says:

        CNN is one of the best Cable news networks, after MSNBC. They only deal in REAL news. Get over it.

  17. Sad says:

    Keep up your crying it’s the easy way out of work. Ask a boss.
