Spoiler alert: She did not!
“The President will settle for the outcomes of a free and truthful election,” mentioned McEnany.
Which, properly, that ain’t it.
So, by that normal, the one approach that the election can be “free and truthful” (in McEnany’s phrases) is that if all mail-in ballots — lots of which have already been despatched and returned! — are someway disqualified (or one thing?).
Which, as a result of each ballot means that Democratic voters are extra inclined to make use of mail-in balloting amid the coronavirus pandemic than GOP voters, would hand Trump a significant benefit. To not point out disenfranchise tons and many people who find themselves eligible voters!
See, the factor is that neither Trump nor McEnany get to outline “free and truthful.” These phrases have goal meanings other than any spin.
They imply that everybody who’s eligible to vote is given an equal alternative to forged a vote — in no matter means are legally accessible to them of their state.
The Level: Trump is a president, not a dictator. He would not get to determine how the election guidelines work. He simply performs inside them. He — and McEnany — nonetheless do not appear to know that idea of, uh, how democracy works.
