On Saturday CNN contributor Kayleigh McEnany announced on social media she was leaving the news network and would "be moving to a new role."
Now taxpayers are demanding to know who's paying for it.
"Thank you for joining us as we provide you the news of the week from Trump Tower here in New York," McEnany tells viewers on Facebook and Twitter. In just 24 hours her video (above) has been viewed more than 1.1 million times on Facebook alone. (Twitter does not publicly provide viewing statistics.)
After rattling off positive economic indicators, including the unemployment rate and consumer confidence levels, McEnany, in her "news" video, "reports" that "President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction." 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."
McEnany's "news" is not entirely fact-based.
