“The president didn’t hear that phrase in that part of the video, and when he was told he was there, he took that tweet,” McEnany told “Fox & Friends.”
“But he made it very clear to me that he is with the people of The Villages, our great elders, men and women in the Villages who support this president,” he continued. “He defends them and his point of tweeting that video was to support his followers who are often demonized.”
