As a professional prevaricator, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is highly competitive with her predecessors at the Trump podium such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the delightful Sean "Spicy" Spicer. Each has earned ridicule on Twitter and Saturday Night Live, but rarely has anyone gotten the kind of roasting on a news broadcast the CNN anchor Brianna Keilar delivered to McEnany today.

Cravenly, McEnany tried to blame Keilar for the shooting of two Louisville police officers following the grand jury's failure to indict three police officers for the killing of Breonna Taylor in that city. Keilar wasn't having that nonsense – and she not only spent several on-air minutes dispensing with serial liar Kayleigh, but eloquently slapped down Trump too.

This is exceptionally lucid commentary on some of our most depraved public personalities.

"It's just very important that the debt ceiling be raised in a timely fashion so the United States can pay its bills when it comes due," Jerome Powell said as the central bank concluded its September meeting. Failure to pay, he added, is "just not something we can contemplate."
