RNC Makes Kayleigh McEnany Its National Spokesperson

In a video posted July 20 on Donald Trump's official facebook page, Lara Trump appeared, saying, "I just want to remind you, if you're exhausted of all the fake news out there, remember, you can tune in right here on our facebook page every week".

Kayleigh McEnany ended her run at CNN by asking for a release - and being granted it - from her contract with CNN.

The video begins with McEnany thanking viewers for joining them as the show will bring people news from around the world from Trump Tower in NY. She left the network this weekend, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News, asking to leave in order to pursue another opportunity. "That is the real news".

CNN reported that it's unclear whether the videos are funded by Trump's re-election campaign or the RNC.

Say what you want about McEnany: She knows how to communicate Republican ideas and values. Many economists disagree, believing Trump is benefiting from policies of the Obama administration, is "overstating his responsibility for recent better growth and jobs numbers", and "might also be a drag on growth". "For decades, a steady rise in immigration has depressed the wages of American workers". Lara Trump's Facebook video for Trump topped two million views and McEnany's is already north of one million by comparison. The video series was launched by Team Trump a week ago, with the first installment hosted by Eric Trump's wife, Lara Yunaska.

On Twitter, critics denounced the video as a form of propaganda. The Trump clip is styled as a substitute news broadcast, though.

"Wow. Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries", Michael McFaul, who served as the US ambassador to Russian Federation under President Barack Obama, wrote on Twitter. Commonly known as propaganda, state news is created to make the country's leaders look good, look like they are right and everyone else in the world is wrong, or evil.
