(HorizonPost.com) – Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany disagrees with her former boss Donald Trump’s assertion that the cocaine found in the White House in early July belonged to Hunter Biden, The Hill reported.
It was first reported last Monday that a uniformed Secret Service officer found a package of cocaine during a routine search of the White House on Sunday, July 2.
Last Wednesday, officials initially claimed that the cocaine was found near the West Wing lobby, a well-traveled area that is included in White House tours.
But on Thursday, the story changed.
NBC News reported that White House officials said the cocaine was not found in the West Wing lobby, but near the West Executive entrance which is below the West Wing offices on the same level as the Situation Room.
The West Executive entrance is not on the White House tour and is only used by White House staff and preapproved West Wing visitors, ruling out the possibility that the cocaine was left by someone taking a tour of the White House.
In a Truth Social post last Wednesday, Donald Trump claimed that the cocaine was found “very close to the Oval Office” and asked if anybody believes that the cocaine belonged to someone “other than Hunter & Joe Biden.”
Trump suggested that the news media would attempt to protect the Bidens by claiming that the powder in the baggie was crushed aspirin instead of cocaine.
He then asked if special counsel Jack Smith was in the area where the cocaine was found, adding that Smith “looks like a crackhead to me.”
But during last Thursday’s “Fox & Friends,” McEnany, Trump’s former press secretary, said that it was “inconceivable” for the cocaine to be Hunter Biden’s since it was found 72 hours after he left the White House for Camp David on Friday, June 30.
