White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized Washington, DC, mayor Muriel Bowser for failing her city with light-handed police tactics and a late curfew.
McEnany said Bowser’s actions were just one example of Democrat mayors around the country who were failing their cities.
McEnany said the late curfew allowed rioters and looters to damage businesses in the city and even light a fire in the basement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, a historic church near the White House.
She pointed out other cities had set earlier curfews which helped stem violence and looting while in Washington, looting and vandalism continued in businesses around the White House.
McEnany noted that rioters in Washington, DC, had vandalized and defaced the Veterans Affairs building, the Lincoln Memorial.
