WH Pres Sec.: Pelosi Calls Peace Deals a ‘Distraction’ – They Are, ‘From Her Visits to the Hair Salon’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and liberal media Wednesday for criticizing the historic Middle East peace deals brokered over the past month by President Donald Trump.

At the end of her press conference, McEnany noted that reporters hadn’t asked even one question about Trump’s accomplishment and, instead, have been finding fault with the peace deals rather than give Pres. Trump credit:

"What I will weigh into is the Middle East deal, the Middle East peace deal, signed yesterday that I did not receive a single question about. That was the first time it’s happened in a quarter-century.

“If Obama and Biden had achieved this, it would look a lot different.

“You wouldn’t have (MSNBC’s) Chuck Todd saying he’s uncomfortable with the deal that brings peace between the United Arab Emirates and Israel and Bahrain. You wouldn’t have CBS calling it ‘a business deal.’”

McEnany then called out Speaker Pelosi for dismissing the peace deals as a “distraction”:

“And, you wouldn’t have Nancy you wouldn't have Nancy Pelosi calling it a ‘distraction.’ Maybe it's a distraction from her visits to the hair salon – but, those were significant agreements. First time in a quarter of a century – three peace deals in 29 days. It took 26 years for the prior two peace deals. So, the Nobel Peace Prize nomination for the president, two of them: very well deserved."

Pelosi recently made headlines when she was caught on video violating coronavirus restrictions by getting indoor service without wearing a mask at a San Francisco hair salon.

As Press Secretary McEnany turned and walked off the stage, a reporter yelled at her, accusing Pres. Trump of repeatedly breaking the law:

“Kayleigh, if he’s a law-and-order president, why does he keep breaking the law?”
