Randall Lane, director of content for Forbes, warned companies this week against hiring Kayleigh McEnany and other senior Trump officials.
Lane writes, “Hire one of Trump’s fabulist brethren above, and Forbes will assume that whatever your company or business talks about is a lie.”

TREND: BREAKING: FBI claims jurisdiction, took control of shredded ballots analyzed in Georgia yesterday – returns them to Shredder
Randall Lane to Forbes reported:
Yesterday’s insurrection was rooted in lies. That a fair election was stolen. That a major defeat was in fact a crushing victory. That the world’s oldest democracy, ingeniously isolated by autonomous state voting regimes, is a rigged system. Such lies, repeated frequently and fervently, provided the ignition, the spark, the gasoline.
It didn’t surprise Forbes that Donald Trump went from Commander-in-Chief to Liar-in-Chief: As we have told early and often, for all his billions and Barnum-like abilities, he exaggerated and procrastinated shamelessly in front of our faces. for nearly four decades. Even more astonishing: the number of people willing to give credence to this obvious lie in his name.
In this time of transition – and suffering – to reinvigorate democracy, you need a calculation. An account of truth. Starting with the people paid by the people to inform the people.
As a fact-scholar, it has been particularly painful to watch President Trump’s press secretaries stoop down. Yes, as with their political bosses, tricks, omissions, and exaggerations are part of the game. But at the end of the day, in public relations, core credibility is the centerpiece of the kingdom.
