On Thursday, McEnany discussed the discovery of the illicit drug at the White House.
However, she dismissed speculation the cocaine was brought into the building by Hunter Biden, who has spoken about his struggle with addiction.
McEnany noted the cocaine was found at the White House on Sunday, and the Biden family had left for Camp David on Friday.
“For it to be Hunter Biden, he left on Friday, he was at Camp David. There’s no way, It’s inconceivable to think cocaine could sit for a 72-hour period, so I would rule him out at this point,” she said.

Earlier this week, the Secret Service confirmed that cocaine was found in the West Wing of the White House.
ABC News notes, “The cocaine was found on the ground floor of the White House, near the West Executive entrance where visitors are instructed to typically drop off their cell phones when visiting the White House, according to a source familiar with the matter.”
“Some visitors are able to tour parts of the West Wing, and tours typically take place on the weekends,” it added.
However, the Secret Service declined to share if there were tours over the weekend. A spokesperson told ABC News, “These are details that are pertinent to our investigation and not something we can get into.”
Conservatives such as former President Donald Trump have speculated the drug was connected to the Biden family in some way.
A law enforcement official told Politico it was unlikely the individual who brought the cocaine into the White House will be discovered as it was found in a highly trafficked area.
