Campus Censorship Dan crenshaw Harvard Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany President Trump Ted Cruz

Students demand Harvard revoke diplomas of Trump allies

A group of students are demanding Harvard University revoke the degrees earned by Trump allies and aides. A petition by Harvard students insists that the Ivy League institution rescind the diplomas to anyone who supported challenging the 2020 presidential election results.

“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes—rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression—incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” the petition stated. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election. They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy’ and ‘the advancement of justice.'”

Fox Business published the document titled: “Petition to revoke the degrees of Harvard graduates implicated in the January 6 Capitol Insurrection.” The petition argued, “A Harvard degree is a privilege, not a right.”

“The campaign to subvert the outcome of the 2020 presidential election left five dead and nearly killed many more armed, organized insurrectionists with Confederate flags and Nazi paraphernalia stormed the Capitol in search of members of Congress to kill or capture. Nationwide violence is expected in the weeks to come,” the petition stated.

“Harvard should be confident in its ability to expose students to diverse viewpoints without empowering the instigators of a violent, racist revanchist movement,” the petition read. “Harvard values democracy, equality, and the rule of law. Does it value them enough to hold its own alumni accountable for the most flagrant attack on these principles in recent history?”

The online campaign called for prominent Republicans to have their degrees taken away, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. The petition claimed, “It’s no secret that over a dozen Harvard graduates worked hard to spread the disinformation and mistrust that created last Wednesday’s insurrection.”

The petition applauded university management for removing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) from The Harvard Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee. Harvard removed Stefanik, who graduated from the elite school with a degree in Government in 2006, because the New York congresswoman voted against certifying the 2020 election results.

Douglas Elmendorf, Dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, explained why he removed Stefanik in a letter released on Tuesday.

“Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence, and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect,” Elmendorf wrote. “Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process through which this country’s leaders are chosen.”

The authors of the petition contend that banning Stefanik wasn’t severe enough of a punishment.

“However, banning someone from a committee or campus because they incited a violent attempt to overthrow the U.S. government is the least the university can do; it still grants them the benefits of their Harvard degree everywhere outside of Cambridge,” the petition said. “Those like Rep. Stefanik, who will wear a ban from Harvard as a badge of honor, may be less sanguine about a career without their B.A. or J.D. Revoke their degrees.”

Stefanik released a statement to address being kicked off the committee.

“As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested, and canceled by colleges and universities across America,” Stefanik wrote. “The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought, public discourse, and ultimately the student experience. The Ivory Tower’s march toward a monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views demonstrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students who will understand that a conservative viewpoint will not be tolerated and will be silenced.”

A spokesman for Harvard declined to provide a comment to Fox Business, but acknowledged that the petition exists and the university is aware of it.

Ryan Enos, Harvard Government professor and director of graduate studies for the Government department, wrote a letter to University president Lawrence S. Bacow on Monday. Enos insisted that the university develop “minimum standards” for lawmakers and others who want to be affiliated with Harvard, and it must “include supporting free elections and not encouraging violence.”

In November, a group of Harvard students started a censorship movement against conservatives. The petition called for a ban on former Trump administration officials from attending, teaching, or speaking at the university, according to Fox Business.

CNN bias Cnn fake news Cnn jake tapper Intelwars Jake Tapper Jake tapper vs kayleigh mcenany Kayleigh McEnany Kayleigh mcenany vs jake tapper

Kayleigh McEnany fires back at Jake Tapper, saying he’s ‘lazy’ for making ‘baseless personal attacks with ZERO evidence’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired back at CNN anchor Jake Tapper after he said that he would not have her on his show because she lies so much.

Tapper made the comments on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter on Sunday. McEnany replied from her official social media account.

“This is a therapy session for a broken network, and @jaketapper is lazy enough to participate by lobbing baseless personal attacks, with ZERO evidence,” McEnany said.

“Jake’s real problem: I do not leak. I do not lie. But I DO call out the lies of the media (i.e. CNN Russia collusion hoax!)”

Tapper told Stelter on Sunday that he refused to have some of the members of the Trump administration or the Trump 2020 campaign on his show.

“There are some people that are so mendacious, I just wouldn’t put them on air,” Tapper said in the interview.

“Kayleigh McEnany, I never booked her. Jason Miller from the Trump campaign, I would never book him. I mean, these are just people who tell lies the way that most people breathe. There was no value in that,” he continued.

Tapper went on to say that former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway didn’t lie like McEnany did, but that she merely changed the subject when asked a tough question.

“There’s a big difference between something like Kayleigh McEnany, who just like, this is what she does, she tells lies all the time, she can’t acknowledge reality,” Tapper continued.

“So I’m just not gonna put somebody like that on air,” he concluded.

Tapper also complained on Monday when President Donald Trump retweeted an insult mocking him and calling him “Fake Tapper.”

“The American people are suffering though the deadliest month of the pandemic and the president is RTing mean tweets about me,” he tweeted.

Here’s Tapper’s comment on ‘Reliable Sources’:

Activists Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Mic drop Press Conference reporters watch WHITE HOUSE

WH press secretary Kayleigh McEnany throws major shade at reporter with mic-drop parting shot: ‘I don’t call on activists’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tossed some shade at a reporter Friday at the end of her news conference, refusing to answer multiple questions shouted at once while beginning to walk away from the podium — and then turning back to let rip a parting shot.

“I don’t call on activists,” McEnany said, bending down briefly to speak into the microphone before finally departing.

What happened next?

Oh, and did that ever irk one voice in the crowd, as a reporter quickly replied to the press secretary as she walked out of the room: “I’m not an activist, and you haven’t taken questions since Oct. 1, and you just took about five, Kayleigh. That’s not doing your job.”


McEnany Tells CNN Reporter ‘I Don’t Call on Activists’ at Press Briefing

youtu.be

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins later tweeted she was the target of McEnany’s mic-drop moment, noting that the press secretary called her an “activist” after being asked why she wasn’t calling on reporters.

And Collins added a zinger of her own: “It’s understandable why someone who hasn’t done their job — taking questions from reporters — in weeks would confuse someone else doing theirs with activism.”

Anything else?

Fox News said Playboy’s Brian Karem repeatedly shouted at McEnany during the briefing with questions about when President Donald Trump will admit he lost the election.

“Do you understand the definition of sedition? Do you understand that he lost?” Karem shouted while McEnany was ending the press conference, the cable network noted, adding that another reporter appeared to shout a question also — which prompted McEnany to deliver her parting shot.

Fox News reported that Karem has a reputation for shouting at members of the Trump administration and even shared his own video of him shouting at McEnany before the end of the briefing:

More from the cable network:

Earlier this year, Trump called Karem a “loudmouth” during a coronavirus press briefing in the Rose Garden.

“I told them when they put this guy here, it’s nothing but trouble,” Trump said about Karem at the time. “He’s a showboat. If you keep talking, I’ll leave and you can have it out with the rest of these people. If you keep talking, I’m going to leave and you can have it out with them.”

Coronavirus restrictions Fox News Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany oregon Thanksgiving covid lockdowns Two week freeze WHITE HOUSE

Kayleigh McEnany blasts ‘Orwellian’ COVID-19 Thanksgiving restrictions

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday blasted some state coronavirus restrictions on Thanksgiving gatherings as “Orwellian,” decrying threats of arrest from some state officials for those who gather for dinner in greater numbers than the state will permit.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” McEnany was asked by co-host Steve Doocy about “suggestions and guidelines” issued by some governors that limit the size of private gatherings because of spiking coronavirus cases as families prepare to celebrate the holidays.

“I think a lot of the guidelines you’re seeing are Orwellian,” McEnany said.

She pointed Doocy to CDC guidelines on wearing a mask and social distancing before arguing that Americans, as a free people, should be trusted to take care of themselves without threats from the government.

“The American people know how to protect their health. We’ve dealt with COVID for many months,” she continued. “But it’s Orwellian in a place like Oregon to say, ‘If you gather in numbers more than six, we might come to your house and arrest you, and you get 30 days of jail time.’ That’s not the American way. We don’t lose our freedom in this country. We make responsible health decisions as individuals.”

Last week, Oregon Democratic Gov. Kate Brown announced a two-week “freeze” to slow the spread of coronavirus. The freeze went into effect Wednesday, limiting the size of at-home, social, and worship gatherings. Additionally, in-door dining has been shut down at restaurants, workplaces that are able have been ordered to mandate work-from-home, and gyms, museums, zoos, and indoor recreation facilities have been closed.

A press statement from the governor noted that “all of the freeze measures are enforceable by law upon both individuals and businesses,” but emphasized that the governor is “urging voluntary compliance.”

“I expect local law enforcement to continue to use an education first approach, but Oregonians need to understand that these rules are enforceable under law. A large majority of Oregonians continue to do the right thing to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their neighbors,” Brown said.

“However, when Oregonians don’t take COVID-19 seriously, and don’t take steps to reduce the spread of the disease, they put all of us at risk. We need all Oregonians to use common sense, make smart choices, and take seriously their individual responsibilities during a public health emergency.”

Violations of the governor’s executive order could result in citation, fine, or arrest, but state law enforcement has been instructed to take matters that far only as a last resort, KATU-TV reports.

Doocy asked a follow-up question, noting that “nobody likes to have anybody tell people what they can and cannot do inside their houses” but that the Trump administration deferred to state and local authorities to enact coronavirus restrictions.

“Ultimately, didn’t the White House say, ‘Do what you want to do?'” Doocy asked.

“Yeah, of course. It’s up to every state to do what they want to do, but there are consequences for those states,” McEnany replied, noting that hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have fled the city over the past eight months during the pandemic.

“The American people are a freedom-loving people,” she continued. “We can make good decisions. We can wash our hands, wear masks, socially distance. But we can also decide in our own personal domicile, our own home, whether we can have our family members present at any given time. That is the American way. That is freedom.”

Fox News Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Neil Cavuto Tucker Carlson voter fraud

Tucker Carlson takes shot at fellow Fox News host for cutting away from WH press sec Kayleigh McEnany

Fox News host Tucker Carlson appeared to take a shot at his Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto on Monday after Cavuto controversially cut away from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

What’s the background?

During a press conference on Monday, McEnany, appearing alongside Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, suggested the outcome of the election was marred by “fraud” and “illegal voting.”

That’s when Cavuto immediately cut away from McEnany.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear,” Cavuto said.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting,” Cavuto continued. “Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this. I want to make sure that maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating.”

He went on to say, “If she does bring proof of that, of course, we’ll take you back; so far she has started saying, right at the outset, welcoming fraud, welcoming illegal voting. Not so fast.”

What did Carlson say?

On his Fox News show Monday night, Carlson took a swipe at Cavuto, although he did not refer to his Fox News colleague by name.

“A large percentage of our population no longer believes that our democracy is real. That is sad. It is also dangerous — it could easily get worse,” Carlson began.

“What we’re doing in response is hardly the solution. It is making our country much more volatile. It is setting us up for something bad,” Carlson continued. “In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens. … You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”

Carlson went on to say, “You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome, because force doesn’t work in a democracy — that’s dictatorship. In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy; you have to win them over with reason.”

Although Trump’s campaign and supporters continue to allege voter fraud swung the election in Biden’s favor, election experts say they have not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud.

“The credible path is to actually be able to produce evidence in the individual states to show fraud, to throw the results in doubt. So far we have seen absolutely nothing that would rise to that level,” election law expert Benjamin Ginsberg said, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Meanwhile, election law expert Richard Hasen told NPR, “Unless something new happens, I don’t see a viable path for Trump to litigate his way out of an Electoral College loss.”

Cut Fox News Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany speech voter fraud

Fox News cuts away from Kayleigh McEnany’s speech on allegations of voter fraud

Fox News host Neil Cavuto interrupted the network’s live feed of a Trump campaign speech from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday, telling viewers he could not “in good countenance continue showing” it due to her allegations of voter fraud in the contested election between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

What are the details?

McEnany, who was joined by Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, explained that she was attending in her “personal capacity” as an adviser to the Trump campaign before saying, “This election is not over. Far from it. We have only begun the process of obtaining an accurate, honest vote count.”

“We are fighting for the rights of all Americans who want to have faith and confidence not only in this election, but in any elections to come,” she said. “There is only one party in America that opposes voter I.D. One party in America that opposes verifying signatures, citizenship, residency, eligibility. There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room. And that party, my friends, is the Democrat party.

“You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election,” McEnany continued. “You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our efforts at sunlight and transparency because you have nothing to hide. You take these positions because you are welcoming fraud, and you are welcoming illegal voting.”

McEnany added, “We want every legal vote to be counted, and we want every illegal vote to be discarded.”

With that, Cavuto pulled the plug, saying, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear.”

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting,” the Fox News host said. “Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this. I want to make sure that maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating.”

Anything else?

Fox News has faced backlash from some Trump supporters who are angered that the outlet was the first to call the state of Arizona for Biden following Election Day last week, despite hundreds of thousands of votes remaining to be counted.

The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in numerous states amid accusations of voting irregularities, while all major U.S. news networks, including Fox News, declared over the weekend that Biden is the projected winner of the race.

Trump-Pence 2020 general counsel Matt Morgan argued in a statement that “the president is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press.”

Account Hunter biden Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany locks New York Post Twitter

Twitter locks account of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she purportedly shares Hunter Biden story

Twitter locked the account of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday, after she cited a New York Post story about Hunter Biden that the platform is working desperately to ban after it was published earlier in the day.

What are the details?

The New York Post published an exclusive story titled “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian business to VP dad,” reporting that “Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.”

Within hours, Facebook suppressed the story on its platform, and Twitter completely locked the accounts of users who attempted to share the piece — including the New York Post’s primary Twitter account.

The Post reported on all of the censorship following its story, too, including the notification to Ms. McEnany’s account, which let her know her that she “violated our rules against distribution of hacked material.”

Twitter explained, “We don’t permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains private information, may put people in physical harm or danger, or contains trade secrets.”

The tweet for which McEnany was purportedly locked out read, “**NEW** Email from Ukrainian executive to Hunter Biden asks Hunter to ‘use his influence’ on behalf of the firm paying him $50k/mo in email with subject ‘urgent issue’ obtained by @nypost Father @JoeBiden was in charge of Ukraine relations at time!!”

She allegedly included a link to The Post’s story.

Politico reported:

The Post story included a screenshot of what the paper said was a 2015 email from Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi to Hunter Biden, thanking him for “the opportunity to meet your father.” But the email doesn’t indicate whether Pozharskyi was describing a meeting that had already occurred or one intended to occur in the future. Nevertheless, the Post reported that the existence of such a meeting undercut Biden’s long-held assertions that he had no involvement with his son’s business dealings.

Biden’s campaign said in a statement, “We have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

However, Politico added that “Biden’s campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn’t appear on Biden’s official schedule. But they said any encounter would have been cursory. Pozharskyi did not respond to a request for comment.”

She concluded, “As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time. With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”

At least three journalists working at the White House tested positive last week.

Intelwars John roberts angry at twitter John roberts twitter John roberts vs mcenany Kayleigh McEnany Proud boys Twitter outrage white supremacy

Fox News’ John Roberts lashes out at critics on Twitter over his question to Kayleigh McEnany: ‘I’m tired of it!’

Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts angrily lashed out at critics on Twitter who were angry at his questions at the White House media briefing.

He made the comments to “Outnumbered” co-host Melisa Francis on Thursday.

Roberts tried to nail down a response from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany about the position the president had about the “Proud Boys,” a controversial political group that often confronts liberal protesters.

“If the president didn’t know who Proud Boys were, and Joe Biden just threw out the name, if he didn’t know who they were, why did he denounce them? Why didn’t he say, ‘well I don’t know who they are, can you give me a little bit more information about them,’ and then make a decision about it?” asked Roberts.

“This all remains very puzzling,” he added.

“And for all of you on Twitter who are hammering me for asking that question, I don’t care, because it’s a question that needs to be asked. And clearly the president’s Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for it too,” Roberts continued.

“So stop deflecting, stop blaming the media!” he said.

“I’m tired of it!” Roberts concluded.

Video of Roberts’ outburst was circulated on social media:

Here’s how it started

Roberts had raised the hackles of supporters of the president when he asked McEnany if the president would make a declaration denouncing white supremacy.

“I’d like ask you for a definitive and declarative statement without ambiguity or deflection,” said Roberts.

“As the person who speaks for the president, does the president denounce white supremacism and groups that espouse it, in all their forms?” he asked.

“This has been answered, yesterday by the president himself, the day before by the president himself, on the debate stage, the president was asked this, he said sure three times,” answered McEnany.

“Yesterday he was point blank asked, ‘do you denounce white supremacy,’ and he said I have always denounced any form of that,” she added.

McEnany went on to read off numerous examples of quotes from the president condemning white supremacy. Roberts noted those examples, but asked for a new comment because those were quotes from the past.

At the end of the briefing, McEnany chastised the media for ignoring the violence from left-wing groups like Antifa and instead focusing on white supremacist organizations.

Here’s the video of Roberts’ question to McEnany:

Antifa Cbs reporter Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Media Videos white house briefing White House Press Secretary

Kayleigh McEnany dramatically concludes briefing by taking on media and Democrats for turning a blind eye to Antifa violence

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday went after the mainstream media and the Democratic Party for turning a blind eye to Antifa’s violence and destruction.

What are the details?

During the media briefing, McEnany issued pointed remarks, accusing the media of misrepresenting President Donald Trump’s words about condemning white supremacy.

Kicking off the briefing, Fox News’ John Roberts asked whether the press secretary would be able to provide a “declarative statement” from the president that explicitly condemned white supremacy.

In response to his — and others’ — remarks, McEnany pointed to many of the president’s past remarks about denouncing the Ku Klux Klan and more.

She later pointed out that Trump has “denounced [white supremacy] more than any other president in modern history.”

“And in fact, something else lost upon the media is the absolutely turning of a blind eye to Antifa. Carrying the water for the Democrats, the media apparently agrees with Jerry Nadler that Antifa violence is a myth,” she said.

She then went on to cite examples when Democrats had apparent opportunities to publicly condemn Antifa, and pointed out various crimes and assaults perpetrated by those who claim to support Antifa.

“Ideas do not target police officers, ideas do not burn down buildings, ideas do not kill innocent Americans, organizations do,” she insisted. “And Democrats should condemn the shameful group the same manner President Trump continues to condemn white supremacy,” she said before dramatically ending the scrum.

Anything else?

Earlier in the briefing, McEnany also snapped at CBS reporter Paula Reid, who attempted to talk over McEnany when she was attempting to answer a question.

McEnany, while pointing out the president’s actions to denounce white supremacy — including a plan to “prosecute the KKK as domestic terrorists” — Reid interrupted and said that the president’s record was “mixed” on the topic.

McEnany fired back, “His record is not mixed in the slightest,” and attempted to provide more examples of such, but Reid continued to interrupt as the two talked over each other.

“Let me speak, Paula,” she demanded. “Paula, we’re not having a debate on a cable news network. Right now you need to let me finish. You need to let me finish. It’s quite funny that the media goes haywire about interrupting in debates, and then chooses to pursue that very same tactic themselves. This is a White House briefing. You ask a question and you give me time to answer.”

2020 Election covid face mask Face mask debate Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Liberal Media Media peaceful protests

Reporter asks press secretary why it’s OK for the president to have thousands of people at his outdoor rallies. She explains: These are ‘peaceful protests.’

In the wake of President Donald Trump holding another outdoor campaign rally where many attendees did not wear face masks, the media wanted to know why the White House believes such rallies are OK when states have said they are not allowed.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany used the left’s own “peaceful protests” canard to clearly explain that the president was not doing anything his political opponents were not already doing.

What did she say?

President Trump has been holding — and has scheduled several more — outdoor campaign events with thousands of attendees. On multiple occasions, large portions of the audience have been seen not social distancing and often not wearing masks. This, of course, has been a source of ire and criticism from members of the media who are positioning themselves as people who are very concerned that the campaign is allowing such seemingly reckless behavior.

For example, after Trump’s Aug. 27 RNC speech at the White House, CNN repeatedly characterized the convention session as a “possible super-spreader event.”

And following President Trump’s campaign rally in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Tuesday, the media were aghast that the president would hold an event with so many people who might be putting their health at risk in a state where public gatherings are supposed to be capped at 50 people.

During the White House press briefing Wednesday afternoon, a reporter demanded to know why the president insisted on holding outdoor rallies with thousands of attendees when governors have declared a ban on such gatherings.

“Why did the president have thousands of people, many not wearing masks, at a rally last night in a state that has limited outdoor gatherings to 50 people? Why is he going to Nevada this weekend to hold similar outdoor rallies?” the reporter asked, noting that the events are “in violation of his administration’s own guidance and of the best advice and guidance of local officials who he has said should have final say in these matters”

McEnany was ready for the question and made it clear the president believes that if the rally sauce is good for the liberal “peaceful protest” goose then it is good for the GOP campaign gander.

“People have a First Amendment right, if they so choose, to show up and express their political opinion in the form of a peaceful protest, which is what the president held,” she explained.

Then she called out the media’s double standard when it comes to their treatment of BLM protests versus Trump rallies.

“There’s a real double standard here, CNN had on a guest, apparently a doctor, Rob Davidson, who said, ‘Now, true, there are social distancing issues’ with regard to the protests we’ve seen around the country, ‘however, this is a public health crisis — they are marching against systemic racism,'” McEnany revealed, citing an interview Davison gave Anderson Cooper on Aug. 28.

“So if you’re allowed to march in aggregate in those protests, you are also allowed to show up at a political rally,” she concluded. “You have a First Amendment right in this country.”

2020 Election Biden press conference Intelwars Joe Biden Joe biden press conference Kayleigh McEnany Media Bias President Trump

Reporters slammed for giving Biden softball questions; Trump: ‘Those questions meant for a child’

Joe Biden fielded questions on Friday, his second press conference this week, after going a month without answering questions from reporters. However, the media didn’t exactly press the Democratic presidential candidate.

Critics, as well as President Donald Trump, took note that reporters tossed easy softball questions to Biden.

What are the details?

Many of the questions presented to Biden at Friday’s press conference in Wilmington, Delaware, were about Trump.

In reference to The Atlantic article that made the accusations against the president using four anonymous sources, Atlantic staff writer Edward-Isaac Dovere opened up the press conference by asking Biden, “What does it tell you about President Trump’s soul and the life he leads?”

Talking about the report, CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe asked Biden, “There are people out there who are supporting you or are inclined to not vote for the president who would be inclined to say, ‘Why isn’t Joe Biden angrier about all of this?'”

ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce asked Biden about President Trump’s comments this week about testing the system by voting in-person as well as using mail-in ballots if the vote is not initially tabulated.

Biden was also asked his opinion on QAnon conspiracy theory supporters and why President Trump hasn’t rejected it.

“I’ve been a big supporter of mental health,” Biden responded. “I’d recommend that the people who believe it maybe should take advantage of it while it still exists in the Affordable Care Act. It’s bizarre. Totally bizarre.”

CNN’s MJ Lee brought up Trump’s comments about Biden wearing a mask.

On Thursday at a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump asked his supporters about Biden’s use of face masks, “Did you ever see a man who likes a mask as much as him?”

“He has it hanging down. Because it gives him a feeling of security,” Trump continued. “If I were a psychiatrist, right, you know I’d say: ‘This guy’s got some big issues. Hanging down. Hanging down.'”

Lee asked the former vice president, “I wonder if you worry that this kind of language that comes from the president of the United States can deter some Americans who are tuning into him to not wear masks?”

Conservative commentators noticed how the media was treating Biden with kid gloves, including Fox News contributor Byron York.

BlazeTV host Mark Levine fired out on Twitter, “Shameless corrupt media and shameful pathetic Biden.”

“Pathetic performance by reporters at Biden press conference today,” said Fox News political analyst Brit Hume. “One softball question after another. Biden, though at times halting and unclear, was more forceful than usual.”

“The media are simply the PR wing for the Biden campaign at this point,” The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro stated.

“Whether you like the former vice president, dislike him, whether you like President Trump or dislike him, these were decidedly friendlier questions than the president ever enjoys,” Fox Business host Neil Cavuto said according to the Washington Examiner.

Mark Hemingway, senior writer at RealClearInvestigations, wrote, “A text from a friend watching the press conference: ‘Who are asking Biden these questions?? It’s like watching someone make sure a 3 year old wins CandyLand.'”

“4 years of ‘but her emails’ taunts worked,” said Washington Examiner executive editor Phillip Klein. “Reporters are worried that if they ask Biden a challenging question they’ll be heckled as ‘complicit’ by the people whose opinions they care about.”

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted, “These are partisan Dem operatives NOT journalists!”

President Trump slammed the media for the softball questions given to his political opponent, saying the inquiries were “meant for a child.”

“I watched the interview with sleepy Joe Biden and … you didn’t ask questions like that,” Trump said at a press briefing on Friday night, reported by The Hill. “They were like, meant for a child. Those questions were meant for a child.”

“Smiles on faces of reporters — not like you and you,” the president said to reporters in the briefing room. “They were smiles on the reporters. What do you think? Take a look at those questions that they asked him. They were not meant for a grown-up, they were meant for a child.”

“I look at that and I think it’s a disgrace,” Trump said. “And then I watch Biden getting asked questions that are really meant for a child to answer, anybody could answer. And I look at the level of question that you people ask. I mean honestly, it’s disgraceful.”

Esalon Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Nancy Pelosi Nancy pelosi salon White House press briefing White house press conference

Kayleigh McEnany pummels Nancy Pelosi while playing salon video on loop during White House press briefing

The news story of Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) getting her hair done at a closed hair salon has been a much-discussed ordeal this week. Articles about the House speaker’s secret haircut were four of the top five best-performing link posts on Facebook on Wednesday.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany wanted to make sure that everyone had an opportunity to see the viral video, so she played it on loop during her press briefing.

At Thursday’s White House briefing, McEnany opened the news conference by playing surveillance footage of a maskless Pelosi walking around a shuttered salon in San Francisco. Not only did McEnany play the video of Pelosi violating several city coronavirus guidelines, but she played the salon video on loop for the media, which included slow-motion footage.

“Two briefings ago, I asked, ‘Where is Nancy Pelosi?’ Today, I can announce we have found Nancy Pelosi,” McEnany started her press briefing. “As you can see, we found Nancy Pelosi going into her hair salon. We will be playing the video on loop for all of you to see during the duration of this introduction.”

“Nancy Pelosi was not in the halls of Congress when I asked where she was,” McEnany said. “She was not working in good faith to make a deal for the American people.”

“Nope, Nancy Pelosi was found in San Francisco at a hair salon where she was indoors even though salons in California are only open for outdoor service,” McEnany continued. “Apparently, the rules do not apply to Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She wants small businesses to stay shut down, but only reopen for her convenience.”

McEnany added, “She wants small businesses to stay shut down, but only reopen for her convenience. ‘Do as I say, not as I do,’ says Nancy Pelosi.

“Nancy Pelosi is holding up $1.3 trillion in relief for the American people while getting special access to the very kind of small businesses that this money would support — businesses like this hair salon,” she said. “Before she skipped town to violate her state’s health guidelines, Pelosi proposed a bill. It was called the Heroes Act, which contained no additional paycheck protection funding. This is funding that would help the very small business she has bizarrely accused of plotting against her.”

“Nancy Pelosi is demanding an apology from a single mother and small business owner who has received threats since Nancy Pelosi’s comments against her salon,” the press secretary said. “Salon owner Erica Kious said this: ‘Since this happened, I’ve received nothing but hate text messages, death threats, saying they are going to burn down my hair salon. It’s just sad that my community is pulling this, saying that I threw her under the bus when I did not. So that’s hurtful.'”

“Nancy Pelosi, you ought to apologize to the American people, or better yet, come back to Washington and get to work for hardworking Americans like this salon owner that you maligned and demanded an apology from,” McEnany concluded.

Pelosi has alleged that the salon owner set her up for embarrassment.

“I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting [me] up,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, released a letter from attorney Matthew Soleimanpour accusing Kious of setting up Pelosi’s stylist, Jonathan De Nardo.

On Wednesday night, Kious told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that Pelosi’s claims that she was “set up” by the salon are “absolutely false,” and that she had received death threats in the wake of the revelation of Pelosi’s salon visit.

“There was no way I could’ve set that up,” Kious, a single mother of two, declared. “I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in and set her up. So that is absolutely false.”

Antifa Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany leftist violence Portland riots reporter Violence against police watch WHITE HOUSE

Kayleigh McEnany smokes reporter for wringing hands over leftists hit by paintballs after ignoring 90 days of Antifa violence in Portland

A reporter on Monday sarcastically asked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany if supporters of President Donald Trump shooting paintballs at leftists in Portland over the weekend counts as “patriotic activity.”

Say what?

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, here’s at least one clip showing a Trump fan in the bed of a pickup truck taking aim at loudmouthed leftists on a Portland sidewalk Saturday — and giving them an instant color makeover.

Content warning: Language:

Pepper spray appeared to be on the menu as well — but you’d think by now they’d have built up an immunity to that.

How did McEnany respond?

Anyway, McEnany was in no mood to entertain the reporter’s question based on what she detected as his blatant double standard.

“It’s incredible that for 90 days I’ve stood at this podium talking about officers [who’ve had] lasers flashed in their eyes in an attempt to blind them, commercial-grade fireworks thrown at them, a church right out here burning down, the people that were harassed and yelled at — [Republican] Sen. Rand Paul, Dan Bongino — right out here, and you’re going to ask me about a paintball video when, in fact, for 90 days we’ve seen horrific violence by Antifa, a radical, anarchist organization,” she replied. “I mean, you’re going ask about a paintball video I’ve yet to see and neither has the president.”

Despite McEnany trying to get to the next reporter, the paintball inquirer pressed forward: “I’m going to ask you about it, but you maintain that the people who went into the city to conduct that activity —”

And with that, she cut him right off: “Look, there’s been 90 days of violence from left-wing anarchists; it’s incredible that today is the one time you’re interested in violence when it’s paintballs — and we don’t even know who set off these paintballs — but you fail to ask for 90 days about violence from an anarchist organization because it happens to be on the left.”

How did folks react to McEnany’s latest media torching?

Like her boss, McEnany doesn’t have a thriving fan club among the White House press corps — but Trump supporters sure appreciate her:

  • “I love how @PressSec schools them every single time,” one observer noted.
  • “@PressSec is one of the best hires in the history of our country for any administration,” another commenter said. “Praying for her and her family — what an incredible woman & mother. Press has no clue how to handle her.”
  • “It was fabulous,” another commenter noted. “That reporter will have flashbacks forever when he hears the word ‘paintball.’ She pointed out the contrast perfectly!”

Chicago mayor Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Kayleigh vs lori lightfoot Lori lightfoot Twitter wars

White House press sec. Kayleigh McEnany shreds Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot: ‘Dereliction of duty’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany went on the offensive against Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Friday.

What’s a history here?

On Thursday,
Lightfoot took to Twitter in an effort to shame and mock McEnany over remarks she made at a press briefing about the increasing gun violence and murders in Chicago.

A reporter asked McEnany about a comment President Donald Trump made regarding the disparity between black and white Americans killed by police.

McEnany responded, “The president has routinely acknowledged and expressed the absolute atrocity of the case of George Floyd, and his heart goes out to that family still.”

She pointed out that numbers — both black and white fatalities — have significantly dropped since the Obama administration.

McEnany added, “[O]ne point [Trump] wants to strongly make is this: that black men and women who die of homicide, they are likely to die of homicide at eight times greater than that of white individuals and Hispanics combined. That’s the rate combined. So that’s an extraordinary thing that we want to look at. … It is unacceptable, and under this president, he’ll take action and the derelict mayor of Chicago should step up and ask for federal help, because she’s doing a very poor job at securing her streets.”

McEnany’s pointed remarks immediately prompted Lightfoot to fire back, “Hey Karen. Watch your mouth.”

What are the details?

On Friday, McEnany shot back with a poised response.

In a now viral tweet, the White House press secretary wrote, “While you’re focused on words, America is outraged by the violence perpetuated in your city. One person is taking action to stop violence in our streets: President @realDonaldTrump.”

“He’s offered your city help,” she added. “It’s a dereliction of duty not to take it.”

She also added a link to a letter from the Trump administration to the governor of Illinois and Chicago leaders.

On Thursday, Trump’s digital director for his 2020 campaign, Gary Coby, took Lightfoot to task over her snipe at McEnany.

On Twitter, he wrote, “Black people are being murdered at a record rate in Chicago. The violence and death is out of control… 64 shot & 11 killed just last weekend. 373 have been killed just this year, a 35% increase.”

“Here is the Mayor, who is a total failure at stopping this violence,” Coby added.

chicago Chicago crime Crime in Chicago Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Kayleigh vs lori lightfoot Lori lightfoot Social media feud

Chicago mayor calls Kayleigh McEnany a ‘Karen’ and the Trump campaign shoots back a fiery response

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot mocked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she criticized crime in her city and the Trump campaign shot back with a fiery response.

The feud began when McEnany answered a question Thursday at the White House press briefing about a comment President Donald Trump made about the disparity between black Americans killed by police officers and white Americans.

“By population percentages, black people are about three times more likely than white people to die in a police encounter,” said a reporter. “If the president won’t even acknowledge that, how can he fix the problem?”

“The president has routinely acknowledged and expressed the absolute atrocity of the case of George Floyd, and his heart goes out to that family still,” McEnany responded.

“He was noting a fact, um, that there were, when you look at unarmed killings with police interactions in this country, that you had nine unarmed black individuals who were fatally shot, and 19 unarmed white individuals, that’s down from 38 and 32, respectively, in 2015, so numbers have actually come down since the Obama administration,” she continued.

“He was making that point, but one point he wants to strongly make is this: That black men and women who die of homicide, they are likely to die of homicide at eight times greater than that of white individuals and Hispanics combined. That’s the rate combined,” McEnany said.

“So that’s an extraordinary thing that we want to look at,” she concluded. “I’ve listed for you the names of these kids who died across this country. It is unacceptable, and under this president, he’ll take action and the derelict mayor of Chicago should step up and ask for federal help, because she’s doing a very poor job at securing her streets.”

Lightfoot responds to McEnany

Lightfoot responded in short tweet meant to mock the press secretary.

“Karen, watch your mouth,” she tweeted simply with a screenshot of McEnany’s comments.

The president’s 2020 campaign digital director fired back at Lightfoot with a collection of statistics on the crime affecting the residents of Chicago.

“Black people are being murdered at a record rate in Chicago. The violence and death is out of control… 64 shot & 11 killed just last weekend. 373 have been killed just this year, a 35% increase,” tweeted Gary Coby.

“Here is the Mayor, who is a total failure at stopping this violence,” Coby added.

Distance learning Intelwars Jake Tapper Jim Acosta Kayleigh McEnany Mcenany quote School reopening White house press secretary kayleigh mcenany

CNN’s Jake Tapper chides reporters — including Jim Acosta — for misrepresenting Kayleigh McEnany comment

CNN host Jake Tapper chided reporters — including his own colleague from CNN, Jim Acosta — who misrepresented a comment from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

The comment was made Thursday during McEnany’s media briefing as she was defending the president’s demand that schools reopen despite criticism that it might help spread the coronavirus.

Josh Lederman of CBS tweeted that McEnany said, “The science should not stand in the way of this,” in relation to the reopening of schools.

Critics of the administration took the quote to mean that President Donald Trump was not going to let scientific conclusions stand in the way of his preferred policy to reopen schools. The claim was emphasized in the headline from The Daily Beast that read, “Kayleigh McEnany: ‘Science Should Not Stand in the Way’ of Reopening Schools.”

But even Tapper, who has criticized the Trump administration heavily, had to chide reporters for propagating the misleading quote.

“Folks read the ENTIRE McEnany comment about “the science should not stand in the way” of opening schools,” Tapper tweeted.

“She’s arguing that the science is on the side of those who want to open them, she cites a JAMA study. I’m not taking a position on the matter but be fair,” he added.

Some people noted that Tapper could have tagged his CNN colleague Jim Acosta, because he was one of the journalists who dishonestly circulated the misleading McEnany quote.

Acosta later added further context to her quote, but not her full quote.

Tapper also went on to criticize the administration for past policies and statements after his tweet about McEnany’s comment.

“Before the familiar voices jump on this to score whatever political points they want,” he tweeted, “the facts are also clear that the president has ignored science and health experts far too many times and the US response is empirically a failure compared to the rest of the Western world.”

Critics of the school reopening plan say that although the coronavirus doesn’t appear to lead to many hospitalization or fatalities among children, opening them up too soon would help spread the virus to more susceptible groups.

Supporters of the plan to reopen schools counter by arguing that children need the socialization that schooling provides, and total distance learning would be a severe hardship for many parents.

Here are the comments from McEnany:

Afghanistan Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany New York Times Nyt bounty story President Donald Trump Russian bounty story White house media briefing

Kayleigh McEnany slaps down the New York Times over report of Russian bounties on US troops

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired back at the New York Times over a bombshell report that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to target and kill U.S. troops.

Critics of President Donald Trump pounced on the report to criticize him for either not knowing about the Russian scheme, or not doing anything about it.

The president addressed the controversy in a tweet on Sunday and denied the allegations.

Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!” the president tweeted.

When McEnany was asked to address the issue on Monday, she attacked the New York Times on previous errors they had made in reporting.

“The president is briefed on verified intelligence, and again I would just point you back to the absolutely irresponsible decision of the New York Times to falsely report that he was briefed on something that he, in fact, was not briefed on,” said McEnany.

“And I really think that it’s time for the New York Times to step back and ask themselves why they’ve been wrong, so wrong, so often,” she added.

McEnany went into a long list of corrections the New York Times had to make on numerous articles and columns.

“It is inexcusable, the failed Russian reporting of the New York Times, and I think it’s time that the New York Times and also the Washington Post hand back their Pulitzers,” she concluded before walking away.

Russia has denied the report, and so has the Taliban.

Children CNN Exploit Intelwars Jim Acosta Kayleigh McEnany Satire

McEnany throws CNN’s record back at Jim Acosta after he accuses Trump of ‘exploiting children’

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta accused President Donald Trump of “exploiting children” by sharing a satirical video on social media this week, leading White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to remind the journalist that his own employer was forced to pay up for actually smearing a kid using a fake news narrative.

What are the details?

On Thursday, President Trump shared a clearly satirical video on Twitter making fun of CNN’s reputation for consistently presenting stories in an anti-Trump spin. The clip begins with a white toddler chasing a black toddler with made-up CNN chryons such as “TERRIFIED TODDLER RUNS FROM RACIST BABY” and “RACIST BABY PROBABY A TRUMP VOTER.”

The video then cuts to “what actually happened,” and shows the two adorable tikes embracing.

Acosta brought up the video during a White House press briefing on Friday, asking McEnany, “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’s exploiting children to make some sort of crass political point.”

“He was making a point about CNN, specifically,” the press secretary replied. “He was making a point that CNN has regularly taken him out of context, that in 2019 CNN misleading aired a clip from one viewpoint repeatedly to falsely accuse the Covington boys of being ‘students in MAGA gear harassing a Native American elder.'”

“That’s a harassing video, a misleading video about children that had really grave consequences for their future,” McEnany added, in a reminder to Acosta that CNN settled a $275 million defamation suit brought by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandman.

Acosta pressed, “So, you’re saying it’s OK to exploit two toddlers hugging one another on a sidewalk to make some sort of political point,” and asked, “When you share fake videos like that, doesn’t that make you fake news?”

McEnany explained, “I think the president was making a satirical point that was quite funny if you go and actually watch the video. The point is, it was a play on CNN repeatedly taking the president out of context.”

Kayleigh McEnany rips into ‘discredited’ John Bolton and his ‘debunked’ book

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany excoriated John Bolton and his upcoming book during a scathing interview on Fox News on Thursday.

McEnany said that Bolton, who had served in the Trump administration as national security advisor, had discredited himself and his book.

“My reaction is that John Bolton has discredited himself,” said McEnany on “Fox and Friends.”

“He is a misguided hawk on foreign policy and a weak dove of an author. This man is someone who praised President Trump as being strong on foreign policy, not making the mistakes of previous administrations, perfectly prepared, these are all quotes from John Bolton,” she added.

“He said, ‘President Trump understands President Ronald Reagan’s peace through strength.” He’s on the record saying this,” continued McEnany.

“So, John Bolton’s book is debunked by none other than John Bolton,” McEnany concluded. “He is discredited on both sides of the aisle, and if you thought Comey was the most misliked, uh, disliked man in America, I think John Bolton has now taken that title!”

McEnany went on to defend the decision of the president to restart political campaign rallies in defiance of expert opinion warning this would lead to a spike in coronavirus cases and deaths.

The future of Bolton’s book is undecided as the White House has sued to prevent its publication. Some snippets have made their way to the media, including an accusation from Bolton that the president personally approved of Chinese concentration camps in a meeting with the Chinese President.

Here’s the video of McEnany’s comments:

Cancel culture Domino's Pizza Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Twitter

Internet tries to cancel Domino’s Pizza over nearly 8-year-old tweet to Trump’s press secretary

Domino’s Pizza trended on social media late Monday because, nearly eight years ago, the pizza company thanked Kayleigh McEnany, the current White House press secretary, for praising its food.

In November 2012, McEnany, then just an upcoming political pundit, tweeted, “FUN FACT: @dominos is wayyyy better than any NYC pizza.”

The pizza eatery responded, “That’s one heck of a compliment! Thanks for the love! #WEAPPRECIATEIT!”

It is not clear who unearthed the ancient (in internet years) tweet, made during Barack Obama’s first presidential term.

Unfortunately, the positive message triggered an avalanche of backlash for Domino’s Pizza, with social media users saying they would no longer do business with the pizza company over the tweet.

  • “You just killed your brand,” pundit Rick Wilson claimed.
  • “Way to align yourself with a political party, Domino’s. Probably should have just been silent,” one person said.
  • “I’m out !
    No more Domino’s for me!!” another person
    said.
  • “Well, last night was the last Dominoes pizza I’ll ever order,” another person said.
  • “This was a mistake. @kayleighmcenany @PressSec is a legitimately legendary liar,” another person told Dominos.
  • “Ask @PapaJohns what happened when the embraced the white supremacy coming out of the @WhiteHouse,” another person said.
  • “I’ll never order your pizza again. Hope your man-crush on Kayleigh was worth it,” another person said.
  • “Dominos Pizza is the enemy of the people,” another person said.
  • F**k you @dominos,” Dave Chang responded.

Domino’s Pizza has not responded to the online controversy and may not, considering the innocuous tweet is nearly eight years old.

However, McEnany poked fun at the cancel brigade.

“I LOVE @dominos (and also @pizzahut)!” she tweeted late Monday night.

Alexandria ocasio-cortez Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany quote Racism

AOC accuses Kayleigh McEnany of racism over a brief quote — then gets a swift dose of the truth

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) accused White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany of intentionally not recognizing her as a congresswoman on Monday after seeing a brief quote on Twitter pointing to the Democratic socialist’s role as an adviser to the Joe Biden campaign.

Ocasio-Cortez even suggested McEnany was racist over the alleged omission, but the press secretary was able to promptly set the record straight.

What are the details?

A Politico reporter covering McEnany’s news conference quoted the press secretary as referring to Ocasio-Cortez as “Biden adviser Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” from the lectern, and flagged the congresswoman on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez replied, “@PressSec wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman.”

The representative from New York went on to lecture, “The @PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to ‘the help.’ Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.”

McEnany replied, “Read the transcript, Congresswoman @AOC,” and attached the transcript of her full statement, which clearly shows the White House press secretary referred to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez as a sitting congresswoman before adding that the democratic socialist from New York is also an adviser to the Biden campaign.

Here is McEnany’s full press briefing. She begins speaking at the 17:45 mark:

CNN Intelwars Jim Acosta Kayleigh McEnany Media

Kayleigh McEnany to Jim Acosta: ‘If anyone needs to be fact-checked…it should be the media’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany countered CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s suggestion Thursday that President Donald Trump’s statements should be fact-checked, by pointing out a number of false stories reported by mainstream outlets before arguing, “if anyone needs to be fact-checked, I think it should be the media.”

What are the details?

The confrontation occurred during a press conference held amid an ongoing battle between President Donald Trump and Twitter, after the social media platform attached a fact-checking feature to some of his tweets earlier in the week. The president responded by issuing an executive order aimed at punishing tech giants.

Acosta, sticking to his reputation as a Trump antagonist, asked McEnany, “Shouldn’t the president be fact-checked, especially this president who has made so many false and misleading statements that has put fact-checkers to work across the world?”

The CNN reporter continued, “These 18,000 false or misleading statements according to The Washington Post, if there’s any president out there we should be fact-checking, or political leader that should be fact-checked, isn’t it President Trump? Aren’t you trying to silence fact-checkers by going after Twitter like this?”

The White House press secretary replied, “Look, if you’re going to get into the fact-checking business, there’s no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media that has been continually wrong about a number of things.”

With that, McEnany began listing off “egregious” examples of incorrect reports from major media outlets — including two from CNN — before reiterating, “So, if anyone needs to be fact-checked, I think it should be the media.”

Faith Intelwars Interviews Kayleigh McEnany White House Press Secretary

White House press sec. Kayleigh McEnany believes God put her in the administration ‘for a purpose,’ says conservative Christians drive media crazy

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that her faith has played an integral part in her career, and she believes God has her right where he wants: the White House.

What are the details?

In a wide-ranging interview with CBN News, McEnany said that she has heavily relied on her faith all throughout her life, but especially now, as the mouthpiece of the Trump administration.

“I believe God put me in this place for a purpose and for a reason like he does with each and every life,” McEnany said. “We’re all here for a reason.”

She added that she felt God’s presence immediately before her very first White House press briefing.

“I was in panic mode right before,” she admitted. “I was just rattled and extremely nervous and feeling a lot of anxiety. I called my mom and on speakerphone, my family and we all prayed together … and all of a sudden, I took a deep breath, and after those prayers, moved forward. I felt such strength, went in and talked to the president, and then walked out and did the job that only could be done if God was there helping you along the way.”

She also revealed that she recently led Bible studies while working with the Trump campaign.

“We would pray and read the Word,” she recalled. “It just gave a little pep in our step because these days are demanding, they’re challenging, they’re long in politics, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican. That’s the nature of the job. It was a little rod of lightning, of just energy and joy in our day.”

What else?

McEnany, 32, also said that she believes the outpouring of conservative, Christian support that President Donald Trump receives on a daily basis drives much of the media and other naysayers crazy.

“People are attacked for their faith,” she said. “Not just me, but Christian men and women across this country. It’s unfortunate, but I think we have found a real voice in President Trump, who stood for religious freedom and pro-life, and [has] given us this boldness.”

She explained that she first experienced the bias when she was enrolled at Harvard Law School.

“I realized it was that megaphone and that kind of boldness we needed, and that kind of fighter we needed to represent the Christian community,” McEnany added.

In conclusion, McEnany pointed out that she still serves God in everything she does.

“My mission in life is that when I pass that He will look at me and say, ‘Well done good and faithful servant,'” she said. “If I can end my life that way, it doesn’t matter what the people say on the way there.”
