White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a highly intelligent woman, being a graduate of both Georgetown University and Harvard Law School.
Having such impeccable credentials makes it difficult for the elitist liberal media to look down its collective snobbish nose at the Trump administration official, not that some don’t try anyway.
Since becoming the president’s spokesperson earlier this year, McEnany has earned a reputation for being well prepared for the daily battles that come with interacting with the Trump-hating media. A battle that she comes out on top of more often than not.
A photo snapped by a Reuters photographer at Thursday’s press briefing captured the tabs of McEnany’s briefing binder showed just how well prepared she is.

For cynical-minded Trump supporters, the image lends itself to the president’s habit of describing the “fake news media” as the enemy, as no stone is left unturned when it comes to trying to score points against the White House.
But then, it seems someone is always spying on Trump, from even before he ever took office, as seen with the Jim Comey-led FBI.
There was an attempt by some in the media to assign sinister motivations to some of the labeled tabs, which included an “Obama” tab — considering much of the media is still engaged in a slobbering love affair with the former president, this jumps off the page.

Other tabs included “Media,” “Absurd,” “Lies,” “Hate” “BLM,” “LGBT,” and “Statues.” Others featured “Russia,” “China,” and “Meuller,” which was misspelled.
Another tab that caught the attention of the press was one labeled “Karl.”
There was plenty of speculation that this was in reference to ABC News White House correspondent Jon Karl — the current president of the White House Correspondents’ Association.
Mediaite went so far as to suggest that the file may contain “oppo brief” against Karl.
But make no mistake, the fact that McEnany is so well prepared drives the left insane.
I know organized people. They don’t come in meetings like that. Plus if you know your shit and you can communicate effectively as well be truthful then you this will not be needed.

Am I the only one who’s noticed McEnany’s “witches spell book” of spin, lies & misinformation?
She’s the only press secretary I have ever seen that has to literally flip through an indexed briefing binder in order to answer a simple question. #PoliticalTheater pic.twitter.com/wJ3bWNjV2K

Maybe the White House should plant microphones in the briefing room and broadcast private convos between “journalists”. Or have a camera looking at their notes to see what q’s they are going to ask. This is why everyone hates MSM
