She’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed CNN’s Jim Acosta after he repeatedly interrupted her.
“Why is the president sharing fake videos on Twitter about two toddlers who are obviously showing a lot of love for one another? It seems as though he is exploiting children to make some sort of political point,” Acosta said. “Why was he sharing fake videos?”
“He was making a point about CNN specifically,” McEnany replied, adding, “A point that CNN has regularly taken him out of context, that in 2019, CNN misleadingly aired a clip from a viewpoint repeatedly to falsely accuse the Covington boys of being, quote, “students in MAGA gear harassing a Native AmericanElder.”
“So you’re saying it is okay to exploit two toddlers hugging one another on a sidewalk to make some sort of political point,” Acosta continued. “As you know, the president has described members of the press as fake news during the course of this administration, when you share fake videos like that, doesn’t that make you fake news?”
“I think the president was making satirical point that was quite funny if you go and actually watch the video,” McEnany responded.
Acosta continued to interrupt and talk over McEnany, prompting her to respond, “You gotta let me finish, Jim, this isn’t a cable news segment, I am answering your question from the White House podium.”
“It’s appalling, you have one person on your network saying this is a celebration in the streets, a carnival like atmosphere. There is a guy with a sign that says free hugs … You celebrate hugging in the context of a protest, but in a Trump rally where we celebrate historic low African American unemployment, criminal justice reform, HBCUs — that rally is not allowed because guess what, Jim, it doesn’t fit the ideological agenda of CNN,” she said.
