One day after Donald Trump named several cities to which he would consider sending federal law enforcement, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany refused to say whether planning for such deployment is underway.

Asked Tuesday about a possible escalation of the tactics Trump is currently using in Portland, Oregon, McEnany said, "I think you're getting ahead of the president here."


But on Monday in the Oval Office, Trump specifically said he was considering sending troops to Chicago and New York, erroneously describing them as "all run by the radical left."

"We're looking at Chicago too, we're looking at New York, look at what's going on," Trump told reporters.

The day before that, Trump tweeted about "New York, Chicago, Philadelphia" in the same context as Portland, which he falsely claimed had endured "50 days of anarchy."

From a July 21 press briefing:

REPORTER: The president says he wants to send these forces to other cities like Chicago — cities where federal property isn't necessarily under attack. What are they going to do when they get to Chicago and these other cities with higher crime rates, higher shooting rates, higher murder rates, if the president's worried about that, what are they going to do? What are they going to arrest people with?
KAYLEIGH McENANY: I think you're getting ahead of the president here.
REPORTER: What kind of federal charges?
McENANY: He's made no announcements as to who's going where. He's very discouraged by the violence that he's seen in Chicago, it's why he's sent a very strong letter to Mayor Lightfoot offering help, because she's clearly unable to control her streets. And the governor, as well, unable to control that area.

Imagine for a moment that someone had administered truth serum to he swindlers and con men of the Trump administration. Then imagine that those morally reformed Trumpsters in Washington made a television ad for Trump-Pence 2020, featuring the government's achievements since 2017.

The resulting commercial might well look something like this offering from the friendly Aussies at Juice Media, except definitely not as funny. The cheerfully foul-mouthed young lady who presents the facts has a lot to tell you about these past few years. And it's all true!

Just click and chuckle.
