Last week Kayleigh McEnany, a Fox News presenter who said marriage equality will close churches and that vice president Mike Pence “loves” LGBTIQ people, became Trump’s fourth press secretary.  

LGBTIQ media monitoring group, GLAAD compiled a list of McEnany’s anti-LGBTIQ comments over her short career.

On a radio show hosted by Tony Perkins from the Family Research Council, designated a hate group by the Sothern Poverty Law Centre, McEnany joined Ken Williams who was speaking about California’s ban on conversion therapy.

Prior to the legalisation of same-sex marriage, McEnany dismissed claims of marriage discrimination as nothing more than “farcical blabber.” She then went on to argue the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality was a threat to religious rights.

McEnany also said it was “awesome” that late Justice Antonin Scalia criticised a pro-marriage equality ruling.

During a panel session on CNN in 2017, McEnany argued that “Mike Pence loves all people” when challenged by openly-gay CNN anchor, Don Lemon that the vice president holds anti-LGBTIQ views.

“Mike Pence loves all people and President-elect Donald Trump has already said he’s not going to roll back the rights that we’ve seen in the gay community,” McEnany said.
