‘Paw Patrol’ Fact-Checks White House After McEnany Falsely Claims Nickelodeon Show Was Canceled: WATCH

Twitter erupted on Friday afternoon after White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany falsely claimed that the Nickelodeon show Paw Patrol has been canceled.

Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany: “Paw Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled. The show ‘Cops’ was canceled. ‘Live PD’ was canceled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego city police station.” pic.twitter.com/UsfwbcXJ5D

“He’s very keen on seeing the violence in our streets end,” McEnany said of President Donald Trump during a briefing. “He’s also appalled by cancel culture and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops. He saw a few weeks ago that Paw Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled. The show Cops was canceled. Live PD was canceled. LEGO halted the sales of their LEGO city police station.” 

In response to McEnany’s false statement, Paw Patrol itself took to Twitter to fact-check the White House: “No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not canceled,” the show wrote, followed by a dog emoji.

No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not canceled. 🐶

The Hill reports: “Cops and Live PD were canceled earlier this year amid nationwide protests against police brutality. But LEGO still sells its police station on its website, and Paw Patrol remains on the air. The latter was renewed for an eighth season earlier this year, and a Paw Patrol movie is due out in 2021.”

McEnany’s claim was apparently based on an online rumor.

Within hours, Paw Patrol was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter. Check out a few of the tweets below.

We all know Kayleigh McEnany is a liar, but lying about Paw Patrol, a cartoon about dogs, is a new low.

Please, do NOT stop hounding her about it.

Honestly, I tried to cancel Paw Patrol several years ago but eventually learned the only thing you can do is just let your kids grow out of it.

No matter what else happens this year, we have all lived to see Paw Patrol correct the White House Press Secretary and that is something to be thankful for.

The gag is that Paw Patrol SHOULD be canceled because the pups are TERRIBLE at their jobs, but OH WELL.
