White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is just the firecracker that America needs.
After White House anti-Trump whistleblower Dr. Rick Bright claimed that he couldn’t show up to work because of “hypertension and stress,” McEnany told Bright that he should grow up and “show up for the job he has,” according to the Daily Mail.
Show Up And Do Your Job
During yesterday’s press briefing, McEnany said that Bright earns way too much money to be able to just skip work because he doesn’t feel like showing up:
“He takes a $285,000 salary – that’s extraordinary for a federal government salary – and he is still on taxpayer-funded medical leave so he can work with partisan attorneys who malign the president.”
Bright hasn’t showed up for work since he was recently demoted after launching numerous politcal attacks against President Donald Trump and his administration for how Coronavirus was handled, which prompted the White House to issue the following response:
“Mr. Bright has not yet shown up for work, but continues to collect his $285,010 salary, while using his taxpayer-funded medical leave to work with partisan attorneys who are politicizing the response to COVID-19.”
Bright had filed a complaint to the OSC prior to skipping work. In his complaint, Dr. Bright slammed Trump and his administration.
And now after launching those attacks against Trump, Bright claims that he’s suffering from “hypertension” and can’t work:
“I had a conversation with my physician about my hypertension and we’ve been managing it over the last three weeks because this has been very stressful to be removed suddenly without explanation for my role and my position. It’s a life change for me.”

McEnany Is Right
It’s time for people working in government to grow up. Too much taxpayer money is being given to these people so they can skip work and not do their jobs.
McEnany is absolutely right. If Dr. Bright really wants to take out his hundreds of thousdands in payment from American taxpayers then he should show up and do his job. If not, then Bright should be fired just like anyone else.
You or I would have been fired years ago if we tried to pull something like this. Dr. Bright shouldn’t get any special treatment.
