WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Explains Why She Wears a Cross
'Faith is the reason I’m here'
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told the Daily Caller in an exclusive interview what prompts her to wear a cross in her high profile position.
During an interview at the White House, Olohan noted, “I always see that you visibly wear a cross,” adding that some Americans may feel anxious about displaying signs of their faith.
“Can you explain why you wear a cross so visibly every day on national television?
"What prompts you to do that?”
“Because faith is the reason I’m here,” McEnany responded.
The White House press secretary, and former cable news commentator, described her journey to the White House as “an unlikely path."
McEnany discussed how she interned at the White House during former President George Bush’s administration.
“I’ll never forget watching Dana Perino give her press briefing, never thinking that I would one day be behind that podium,” McEnany said.
She insisted that becoming a press secretary was “never my goal.”
“I always wanted to be in politics and media but never really set out for that position,” McEnany said.
"But it all fit together like a woven web because God had a path lined up for me, as he does for each and every person on earth.
“All you have to do is trust him, and follow the path, and pray, and he makes all the dots fit together.
"The very least I can do is wear the cross, the symbol of the very instrument He died on to save humanity, Jesus Christ.”
McEnany weighed in what it like serving President Donald Trump’s administration as a wife, mother and how life has changed since she entered such a challenging role.
She then reflected on he left-wing media's bias against conservative women, telling Olohan that “no matter what Republican administration it is, Republican women are just treated differently by virtue of their party ideology.”
“It’s unfortunate, but if you are a Republican, male or female, you will be attacked particularly in the Trump administration because the media always is keen to demonstrate their innately liberal bias,” she said.
