One of the things conservatives miss the most about the Trump administration is former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

Though gone from the press briefing room, McEnany has remained an outspoken figure in conservative Republican politics courtesy of her co-hosting position on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” program.

She also talked about how at one point the New York Times came to take
