Donald Trump's White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, has been ridiculed on Twitter after she said that the president would 'continue to lead an unprecedented' response to the coronavirus pandemic.
In response to a comment by CNN anchor Don Lemon, who claimed that the network should stop airing the president's coronavirus task force press briefings, McEnany said that Trump will continue to do his job 'as news warrants.'

McEnany was perhaps trying to stroke the president's ego but in a way, but it very much backfired. Yes, his response has been unprecedented... as more than one million people have been infected by the virus in the US since January, which has resulted in more than 50,000 deaths.
This is as well as record unemployment claims, with forecasts suggesting that the rate could go as high as 20 per cent, which would be its highest point since the Great Depression.
