On Tuesday, ex-President Donald Trump utilized social media as a platform to launch an attack on his former press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany. Trump accused her of distorting poll numbers during her appearance on Fox News.
“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on Fox News. I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up. While 25 is great, it’s not 34. She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll,” Trump wrote, before finishing with, “The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!”

The critique arose following Kayleigh McEnany's statement on Fox News' "Outnumbered," where she asserted that polling data in Iowa indicated that Ron DeSantis, a Republican presidential candidate for 2024, was gaining ground with voters and closing the gap with Donald Trump. The Hill reported this claim.
Although Trump did not specify the particular poll he was referring to in his criticism, a survey conducted by Donald Trump's pollster between April 27 and April 30 revealed that Trump held significant sway over Iowa voters at 54%, while DeSantis received 20%. This finding aligns with another poll conducted in April by Victory Insights, which showed Trump receiving 54% of the vote, with DeSantis in second place at 24%. In the absence of Donald Trump on the ballot, the same poll indicated DeSantis leading the field with 59%.
Trump's use of the term "milk toast" seems to be a misspelling of the word "milquetoast," which refers to a timid or weak individual. It remains unclear why Trump employed this term to describe McEnany, considering her assertive presence while serving as press secretary. However, Republican Texas Representative Chip Roy echoed the term during an appearance on Fox's "The Ingraham Angle" later.
