White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared on Fox and Friends and claimed "Democratic cities" across the country will "send out the left to attack you" if "you don't vote for the left-elected candidate," Joe Biden.
"Notice what these cities have in common: they are all democratic cities," McEnany responded to an observation of companies closing their stores and windows in preparation for possible unrest after tomorrow's elections.
"What are you saying with this boarding and the unrest that you are expecting?" She continued. "They say if you don't choose the candidate elected by the left, we will send the left out to attack you. This is as close to blackmail as possible and Joe Biden has the power to say" Stand down "to the mob, but will he do it? "
“This is proof that federal power should not be given to the left. We deserve the great American tradition of democracy, peaceful elections, acceptance of the votes of the American people, but the boarded-up windows, the closed shops tell you everything you need to know about the modern American left. The violence is unacceptable and they don't deserve federal power, ”she said.
McEnany's claims are "absolutely insane," said commentator Bobby Lewis, a researcher at Media Matters for America.

McEnany's comments come after a caravan of supporters of President Donald Trump was molested and reportedly attempted to drive a Biden campaign bus off a street in Texas. The FBI has opened an investigation into the incident.
"In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong," Trump said later in a tweet. "Instead, the FBI and the judiciary should investigate the ANTIFA terrorists, anarchists and agitators who are walking around burning our Democratic-run cities and hurting our people!"
