According to former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, liberals are “haters” and have incorrectly painted the Founding Fathers as being pro-slavery. Instead, she insists, the men who founded the United States were “against” slavery.
McEnany made her moronic comments on Fox News, where she appeared as part of a panel, remarking:
Where to begin? Let’s start with fact-checking that load of fetid bullshit that just poured out of Kayleigh’s mouth, courtesy of USA Today:
“Some of the signers are world famous – among them Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams – and some are obscure. The majority owned slaves – 41 of the 56, according to one study – though there were also ardent abolitionists among their number.”
41 of 56 owned slaves, but they were “against” slavery? Is that why the founders agreed to count slaves as 3/5ths of a white man when it came time to conduct a census count? If someone is opposed to something, why would they codify it into the document meant to govern the nation?
McEnany also got taken to task on Twitter:
Is Kayleigh McEnany really this stupid? Yes, and willfully so, which is the worst ignorance of all.
