Kayleigh McEnany RIPS CNN A New One
She’s fed up with them…
Kayleigh McEnany, White House press secretary, chastised David Jackson of USA Today after he stated that Trump was “hiding” while the riots were going on.
Jackson asked McEnany, “Would you agree that he is hiding out on this issue?”
McEnany responded saying, “I would not agree with that at all, I was on the phone with the president at least half a dozen times yesterday and every time I talk to him, he was telling me about a different action he has taken.”
Jackson rebutted saying, “We have not heard him on camera that much, will we hear about this?”
This is when McEnany decided to also go in on CNN, she said, “There was a Washington Post article with an egregious headline about Trump staying silent. He has not been silent on this. I have a list of his remarks there and instead, in paragraph 23 they note, oh wait, we are contradicting our own headline, the president did in fact make remarks, contrary to the ‘silent’ headline.”
“You had Don Lemon on CNN saying at 9:38 pm, ‘The president’s been silent.’ Ironically that came four hours after the president was quite audibly speaking at this issue. I was there for the remarks. And then you had CNN double down the next day, Sunday afternoon, saying that the president was silent. I don’t want to bore you with reading out all the statements, but it sounds like I should read a few, like the president saying, ‘It is a grave tragedy that filled Americans all over the country with anger, and grief. And I stand before you as an ally seeking justice. I understand the pain that people are feeling.’ I could go on and on, but I would just be repeating with the president has already said.”
Hitting two birds with one stone, that’s why she is such a great press secretary for the White House.
