FORMER White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors on Monday for calling herself a "Marxist" despite owning a $1.4 million home.
"One would think a self-proclaimed, trained Marxist would do exactly what you just described," McEnany said on Fox on Monday in reference to doing what one preaches.
McEnany's tirade against Cullors comes after it was revealed the BLM co-founder dropped $1.4 million on a property in Los Angeles.
The California native wrote in her 2018 memoir that she was raised by a single mom in a two-story building with peeling paint and describes herself as a "trained Marxist" and "freedom fighter" on her website.
"But she didn't. If she got these funds through a legitimate way, not through the BLM fundraising mechanism, then good for her," McEnany continued.
Cullors, 37, "came from public housing, she grew up in public housing, her mom was a mom of four and worked 16 hour days and their only grocery store was the 7/11," McEnany said.
Cullors may face even more financial troubles soon enough, after a BLM leader called for a financial investigation after it was revealed Cullors spent a total of $3 million on real estate.
"She came from humble beginnings and now has risen to great heights," the last press secretary under Donald Trump continued. "Good for her, except this."
"This is the American dream but she's professing an ideology directly at odds with the American dream," she continued. "Trained Marxists often do this."
"Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed dem socialist makes millions and has three houses. Elizabeth Warren has a net worth of almost $8 million so as we find with trained Marxists, socialists, and others, they often don't practice what they preach," she ended.
She was attacked for being a "fraud" after she purchased the LA home in an area that is 88 percent white.
Cullors co-founded BLM with her now spouse, Janaya Khan.
