  Fact check: Trump lawyer Sidney Powell falsely stated he won election 'by a landslide' A meme correctly quotes onetime Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell. But her assertion that he won the election "by a landslide" is false.“We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to back down. We are going to clean this mess up. President Trump won by a landslide and we are going to prove it. We are going to reclaim the United States of America,” reads a Facebook meme.

In a tweet announcing the new senior members of the White House staff, the Biden-Harris Presidential Transition Twitter account described how "for the first time in history, these communications roles will be filled entirely by women."

Among some of the new incoming all-female senior communications team include Jen Psaki as White House press secretary, Symone Sanders as chief spokesperson for Harris and Biden campaign communications director Kate Bedingfield, who will serve as the White House communications director.

The Claim

Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary in Donald Trump's administration, dismissed the reports that this is a historic first move, tweeting that Trump already has an all-female senior White House press team, as does Vice President Mike Pence, first lady Melania Trump and second lady Karen Pence.

George Conway, a lawyer, frequent Trump critic and husband of former senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, was one of those to dispute the claim, noting that Trump has several senior male members of his communications team.

"This is just such a weird and pointless thing to lie about," Conway tweeted.

The Facts

Whether McEnany was being misleading about the female members of staff for the Trump and Pence teams depends on what she characterized as "senior" in her original tweet.

It is true that Trump has several high-ranking female members on his White House press team, with McEnany having the top job as press secretary. Trump's current communications director is Alyssa Farah.

Melania Trump's chief of staff and press secretary is Stephanie Grisham. Karen Pence's director of communications is Kara Brooks, with Jana Toner both deputy assistant to the president and chief of staff to the second lady.

However, as also noted by Conway, the vice president's press secretary is Devin O'Malley, who took over the role in May after Katie Miller was promoted to communications director.

It is unclear if McEnany counted Miller's current role as Pence's "ALL FEMALE Senior White House Press Team" while dismissing O'Malley's current job.

Opinion: Mavs’ Luka Doncic will be even better in Year 3 with upgrades on roster around him

  Opinion: Mavs’ Luka Doncic will be even better in Year 3 with upgrades on roster around him Luka Doncic, 21, has already prompted Rick Carlisle to compare him to a Hall-of-Fame scorer (Larry Bird) and a Hall-of-Fame point guard (Jason Kidd). Doncic also made dramatic shots from any distance during his second season, including a game-winning 3-pointer in Game 4 of the Mavs’ first-round playoff series against the Clippers. Because of those qualities, Carlisle argued that Doncic and Lakers star LeBron James are among the few players that can almost do anything they want on the court. “His game continues to be more and more refined each year in all areas,” Carlisle said of Doncic.

President-elect Joe Biden will have an all - female senior communications team at his White House , reflecting his stated desire to build out a diverse Despite having previously cursed at having to do White House Christmas decorations, Melania Trump is still planning to host holiday gatherings at the

However, if McEnany was referring either to Trump's or Pence's full communications team, then it is untrue that they are run by all-female staff.

Additionally, Judd Deere is Trump's White House deputy press secretary and Brian Morgenstern is deputy communications director and deputy press secretary.

Responding to the reports of an all-female senior staff, Deere tweeted: "Since I arrived at the Trump White House a woman has always been my boss. First it was Hope Hicks, Mercedes Schlapp, and Sarah Sanders. Then it was Stephanie Grisham. And of course currently it's Kayleigh McEnany and Alyssa Farah. I guess the media forgot?"

The Ruling

False.

Even if you took McEnany's original tweet to mean only the very top positions in the communications teams, you still would have to dismiss O'Malley and instead class Miller's job as communications director as the main role for her claim to stand up.

If it was meant to mean the entire team—understandable because as it was in response to a Washington Post article announcing Biden's full positions—there is no way to justify the claim of an all-female senior staff.
