Those who tuned in to watch "The Ingraham Angle" on Friday night with Laura Ingraham may have been let down to discover that she was absent for the evening.
That said, they weren't let down for very long.
After former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany stepped in as a guest host, fans took to social media to share their opinions, which were overwhelmingly positive.
According to McEnany, while covering recent developments from the House Oversight Committee, it was revealed that millions of dollars had been directed towards family members of then Vice President Joe Biden by a Chinese energy company. McEnany stated that Hunter Biden's attorney had at least partially verified this claim.
During the program, McEnany interviewed Tulsi Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former congresswoman from Hawaii. She inquired as to why the "big guys" always appear to escape accountability while the "little guy" is left to suffer.
“There is this revolving door, Kayleigh, I know you’re very, very familiar with, where constantly we see how for example members of Congress who are supposed to be regulating Big Pharma don’t, and then they go and leave Congress and get a payout from Big Pharma.
“We see it with the military industrial complex, Secretary Austin, then Gen. Austin, retires from the military, goes and works for Raytheon, now goes back as a secretary of defense and seeing the billions of dollars that is going towards the military industrial complex.
“We see it with these financial regulators, people in position to actually do their job to protect the little guy, to protect our small and community banks, but instead, what are they doing? They are looking for the payout where they can go and work for the big banks that they are allowing off the hook.”
According to Gabbard, these practices are an "incredible abuse of power" and contribute to the American people's mistrust of their government. She observed that the country's Founders had cautioned against such misuse of power and urged ordinary citizens to hold government officials responsible.

McEnany mentioned polling data revealing the low level of trust that Americans have in their government. Nevertheless, it was evident that Ingraham's audience approved of McEnany's hosting.
Here are some of the positive Twitter reactions to McEnany's performance:
You did a Great Job!!

From April 2020 until the end of Donald Trump's presidency, McEnany served as his press secretary and is widely regarded (at least by the right) as one of the most competent individuals to have held the position. However, it seems that she has a different career path already charted out for herself, should she choose to pursue it.
