Fox’s Kayleigh McEnany Claims All The ‘Main Founding Fathers’ Opposed Slavery

As Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany infamously said on her first day: “I will never lie to you. You have my word on that”

Fox’s Kayleigh McEnany, a liar who served as White House press secretary under former President Donald Trump, lied about slavery and the founders of the United States during Tuesday’s Outnumbered.

Kayleigh said that  “all of our main Founding Fathers were against slavery, recognized the evils of it.”

The majority of signers of the Declaration of Independence owned slaves — 41 of 56, according to one study.

Just look at some of the early presidents. George Washington enslaved hundreds of men, women, and children. Thomas Jefferson enslaved over 600 people, including Sally Hemings. James Madison enslaved over 100 people, James Monroe as many as 250. We could go on.

McEnany was part of an all-white panel on Fox News Tuesday morning discussing Rep. Cori Bush’s (D-Mo.) July Fourth tweet, where she said that Black people are still not free in America.

All members of the panel were miffed by Bush’s tweet, but none more than McEnany.

“The haters never take a day off from hating, that is clear,” McEnany said. “And they never take a day off from getting the facts wrong. We know most of our forefathers, all of our main Founding Fathers, were against slavery, recognized the evils of it.”
