During a broadcast, Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany made a statement on the finding of cocaine at the White House and rumors that it may have belonged to first son and former addict Hunter Biden.
In an interview with host Sean Hannity, the former press secretary for President Trump discussed new rumors that the cocaine may have belonged to a “White House staffer.”
She drew on her own knowledge to explain that the location where the substance was located is “heavily trafficked,” and she claimed that it was probably “discovered rather quickly” due to the Secret Service’s constant surveillance of the area.
“So it couldn’t have been there for days and days,” McEnany said. “It had have been there for — I would say — minutes before someone took notice.”
Karine Jean-Pierre, the current White House press secretary, was then criticized by McEneny for not being more ready to respond to queries about the event the day before by having the most recent information from the Secret Service. She was also annoyed because Jean-Pierre’s backup explanation—which was already established—was that the first family was not at the White House when the discovery was made.

According to reports, the White House was evacuated after officials found an odd white substance, which tests later determined to be cocaine.
Roads near the president’s official residence were shut off by Secret Service personnel, and a DC Fire Department hazmat team was sent to the scene to conduct an investigation.
“U.S. Secret Service Uniform Division Officers located an unknown item on the White House complex. As a precaution, the White House grounds were evacuated, and the DC Fire Departments Hazmat team responded,” a USSS spokesperson told Fox News.
According to Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesperson for the U.S. Secret Service, “On Sunday evening, the White House complex went into a precautionary closure as officers from the Secret Service Uniformed Division investigated an unknown item found inside a work area.”
“The DC Fire Department was called to evaluate and quickly determined the item to be non-hazardous,” Guglielmi added. “The item was sent for further evaluation, and an investigation into the cause and manner of how it entered the White House is pending.”
A few days later, NBC News reported individuals who claimed that the cocaine had really been discovered in a cubby area in the West Executive basement, which is where cars carrying Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff typically park.
The cocaine was discovered, according to the sources, “in an entrance area between the foyer and a lower-level lobby,” wrote reporters Kelly O’Donnell and Megan Lebowitz. “The entrance is near where some vehicles, like the vice president’s limo or SUV park. It is one floor below the main West Wing offices and the same floor as the Situation Room and a dining area.”
“What I wanted to be very clear is that this is a heavily, heavily trafficked, heavily traveled, to be more accurate, area of the campus of the White House,” White House press secretary Jean-Pierre told reporters Wednesday. “It is where visitors to the West Wing come through.
“This is under the purview of the Secret Service,” she noted further. “They are currently investigating what happened over the weekend. So I would have to refer you to the Secret Service, the Secret Service, on all of this.”
Former U.S. Secret Service special agent Robert McDonald described how the organization will probably look into whose cocaine was found in the White House.
McDonald stated during a Fox News interview that he thinks the organization “likely has a fairly good idea” of who is connected to the White House cocaine incident.
