Pro-Trump pundit Kayleigh McEnany goes from CNN to RNC

CNN reported on Sunday that McEnany had asked to be released from her contract and later appeared as the anchor of a faux newscast touting President Trump's accomplishments.

McEnany closed the video by assuring viewers that her selectively positive coverage was reliable: "Thank you for joining us, everybody". The new channel, which is apparently broadcast direct from Trump Tower, claims to be not fake news.

That McEnany tweet wasn't the only one that raised eyebrows today.

McEnany signs off the video by taking a dig at the traditional media, which Trump has targeted during his campaign and administration. "Thank you for joining us as we provide you the news of the week from Trump Tower here in NY". The first video was hosted by the president's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump. McEnany stated in the 90 second piece that Trump is clearly steering the country's economy in the right direction. "I will be moving to a new role".

Former U.S. Ambassador to Russian Federation under President Barack Obama, Michael McFaul, said the video "Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries".
