White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany renewed the traditional White House briefing Friday with a promise to stick to the truth
“I will never lie to you,” McEnany said. “You have my word on that.”
Well, it does occur to me that a phrase like “I am not a liar” has no meaning. Because if you are a liar, then you are lying. So how can anyone tell?
And I’m not sure how much it matters when it comes to press secretaries. By the usual ground rules, they are not permitted technically to lie, but they can obscure, mislead, and dodge questions.
That said, McEnany seems sincere.
