White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped Washington D.C.’s Mayor Muriel Bowser for ordering a late curfew, saying the violence and destruction in reaction to the death of George Floyd had already become so out of hand.
“I think when you look at some of the befuddling actions like right here in D.C.,” McEnany said. “The Mayor of D.C. didn’t issue a curfew until 11 P.M. Well, guess what, at 10 P.M., you had St. John’s church burning. Several other cities had curfews at 4 P.M., at 5 P.M., at 6 P.M. Some of the actions are really not tough enough, as the President noted. Particularly with the Mayor here in D.C.”

She added, “And when you look at these horrific actions I just want to note how completely wrongheaded the fact is that you had the Veteran’s Affairs Department defaced and the word ‘Veteran’ completely spraypainted off the building. You had the Lincoln Memorial defaced, a beautiful symbol of a President who overcame some of the deepest racial divides in our country. And to have those institutions defaced really undermines the message.”

Bowser delayed her order until around 6 P.M. on Sunday, in an announcement she posted to Twitter. She also called on the DC National Guard to support the city’s police forces.
