CNN's Donald Trump Surrogate Kayleigh McEnany Named GOP Spokesperson

Kayleigh McEnany who departed days ago as a commentator at CNN returned in front of the camera Sunday to present Trump's

"Join Kayleigh McEnany as she provides you the news of the week from Trump Tower in NY!" The 29-year-old McEnany only started appearing on CNN in 2016, when the network was looking for Trump surrogates to come on and say ridiculous things its anchors could make fun of during the election. She similarly praised the president throughout her segment, and ended by saying she had brought the "real news" to the American people. McEnany appeared over the weekend to provide a "real news" roundup of the week's headlines.

President Trump has frequently called mainstream media, including CNN, "fake news". Now she's left the network and has turned up as the apparent new host of pro-Trump broadcasts from the president's Facebook page. Many economists disagree, believing Trump is benefiting from policies of the Obama administration, is "overstating his responsibility for recent better growth and jobs numbers", and "might also be a drag on growth". She also talked about the RAISE act that the president introduced Wednesday, stating that for decades rises in immigration has seen the American workers wages decline.

"My take is that he's given up", she said.

"It is sad but necessary to have to broadcast President Trump's achievements in this manner", one commenter wrote on the president's Facebook page. Whether that's a testament to Facebook's reach, the Trump team's greater promotional savvy, the sheer novelty of the new Trump videos, or something else, decide for yourself.

On Twitter, critics denounced the video as a form of propaganda. In many cases, it is the only news available, so the public is only given information the state wants them to know, and many times it is full of factual errors or blatantly wrong.

"Wow. Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries", wrote former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

The video was captioned, "Tired of all the fake news?"
