Kayleigh McEnany’s Parents Received Over $1 Million in PPP Loans

In an effort to aid small business’ during the COVID-19 pandemic, the government created a loan program. Plenty of large businesses were more than willing to take advantage of the program. After much public shaming, companies like Shake Shack and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse returned the money.

Last week, a list was released of additional corporations who had received funds. This included a winery partially owned by California Congressman Devin Nunes and multiple companies connected to Jared Kushner. In addition the parents of Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also received a large loan.

During a recent interview with Fox News, McEnany explained that the loans were meant for companies with less than 10 employees. She told Ed Henry, “The vast majority, as I noted, 1 million of the 1.6 million loans that went out, were companies with 10 or fewer employees. That is what this program is designed to do, that is who it is helping.”

This does not seem to represent the company owned by the Press Secretary’s parents, McEnany Roofing. The company’s loan application said that it employed 141 people.

In that same interview with Fox News, McEnany also claimed that getting the money out to businesses was more important than making sure ineligible companies did not take advantage of the program.

“We’re concerned with getting money to people right now,” she remarked. “I mean, look, we’re not concerned with cobbling a list together to please the media.”
