Kayleigh McEnany thinks New York City pizza is bad.
Hosting the show is former CNN pundit Kayleigh McEnany, who was also hired as the RNC’s lead spokesperson yesterday. As whenever a new person is thrust into the limelight, everyone dove into her old tweets to see what improper stances she had.
And after doing so, the internet has just one question: Do you really trust this person to give you the truth? Because…
FUN FACT: @dominos is wayyyy better than any NYC pizza

Look, if there’s one thing that’s actively bad—and greatly contributes to the red state-blue state, urban-rural divide—it is city folk scoffing at and being reflexively dismissive of the chains and brands many Americans enjoy. There is nothing wrong with enjoying a slice of Dominos, or Papa John’s, or Pizza Hut. Pizzas from those places are objectively good, and not bad, despite what any snob will tell you. Never look down on someone who enjoys them.
But New York City pizza is the best and if there’s one thing that’s actively bad—and greatly contributes to the red state-blue state, urban-rural divide—it is middle Americans scoffing at and being reflexively dismissive of anything supposedly culturally refined merely because it occurs in a city setting. New York has some of the best pizza in the world and it deserves to be appreciated and recognized for that, despite any reservations you have about praising Mayor Bill de Blasio’s overpriced Soviet gulag.
Here, also, is McEnany praising the man who advocated for American authorities to violate two centuries of human rights principles by torturing suspected terrorists.
Spoke with John Yoo, the Bush admin lawyer who wrote the Torture Memos that authorized waterboarding. TRUE AMERICAN HERO!

Maybe we should have led with that.
