Former Trump White House and campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany is being mocked after ignoring how her former boss politicized the coronavirus pandemic from the very start, and falsely claiming President Joe Biden has been politicizing COVID — even more than his predecessor.

“At the end of the day, no one has politicized this virus more than President Joe Biden,” McEnany, now a Fox News contributor, falsely claimed. “You have the mask wearing incident there. You have Kamala saying on the campaign trail, ‘If Donald Trump tells me to take the vaccine, I won’t take it.’ You had Biden mimicking that rhetoric, then they get into office. ‘Yay, take the vaccine.’ That should have been the message back on the campaign trail, as well on travel restrictions. ‘You know, Trump’s xenophobic for this,’ and now all of a sudden travel restrictions work. Are you sensing a pattern here? Because you should, it is politicization of this virus on the campaign trail. They dismissed the policies, they issued the policies they are now putting in place, they were always effective. And where’s the consistency rather than outright politicization?”

She was roundly mocked, even by noted political scientist Norm Orenstein:
