White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped the press for their obsessive anti-Trump reporting during the press briefing.
The White House Press Secretary torched members of the mainstream press for ignoring recent murders in Democrat-run cities.
McEnany shredded the reporters over their countless attempts to obsessively push anti-Trump lines of questioning during the briefings.
At Monday’s presser, she hung the reporters out to dry after becoming disgusted by their flurry of questions.
The questions ignored the violence around the country and instead focused on the Confederate flag.
McEnany concluded the briefing by nuking the one-sided reporting.
“Finally, I’d end with this: I was asked probably twelve questions about the Confederate flag,” she said levelly.
“This president’s focused on action,” the press secretary continued.
“I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question on the deaths that we got in this country this weekend.”
“I didn’t receive one question about New York City shootings doubling for the third straight week and over the last seven days, shootings skyrocket by 142%.”
“Not one question,” McEnany blasted.
“I didn’t receive one question about five children who were killed.
“And I’ll leave you with this remark by a dad; it broke my heart.
“A dad of an eight-year-old lost in Atlanta this weekend: ‘They say Black Lives Matter? You killed a child; she didn’t do nothing to nobody,’ was his quote.
“We need to be focused on securing our streets; making sure no lives were lost, because all black lives matter.
“That of David Dorn and that of this eight-year-old girl.”
McEnany wasn’t wrong about the number of relentless questions regarding the Confederate flag.
The press secretary was bombarded with loaded anti-Trump questions about the flag throughout the briefing.
Here are some of the questions that were fired at her:
- Why is the president so supportive of flying the Confederate flag?
- Does he believe NASCAR should fly the Confederate flag and why don’t they fly it here?
- What is the president’s position? Does he think NASCAR made a mistake by banning the Confederate flag?
- Let’s drill down on the Confederate flag. Does he think it was a mistake for NASCAR to ban it?
- Does he think NASCAR’s ratings are down because they banned the Confederate flag?
- Does he think his supporters should not take the flag to Trump rallies?
- Has he considered banning the Confederate flag from Trump rallies?
- You were saying we were taking the tweet out of context, but this is what he (Trump) tweeted: “Has Bubba Wallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his die, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another hoax? That & flag decision has caused lowest ratings ever.” How are we misinterpreting that?
- On the Confederate part, why would the president not praise NASCAR for removing the Confederate flag, particularly given the history of that flag, the symbol that it has for African-Americans, and also what it represents in terms of just the treasonous acts and the insurrection against the republic?
- What exactly does the president see as positive or uniting about the Confederate flag?
- You’ve said there’s no opinion on the Confederate flag. Why can’t this White House unambiguously state whether or not it supports displays of he Confederate flag?
- And what about making a statement on the Confederate flag? Are we capable of doing that?
