White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is doing a great job dealing with the biased media. She simply will not play their game and they cannot handle it.
“Why is the president making these unfounded allegations?” ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl asked. “This is pretty nuts, isn’t it? The president is accusing somebody of possible murder. The family is pleading with the president to please stop unfounded conspiracy theories. Why is he doing this?”
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany didn’t waste a minute to turn the tables and shut down Karl.McEnany said Scarborough was “joking about killing an intern” years after the death on Don Imus’s show.
“I’m sure that was hurtful to Lori’s family,” she added.
“He’s the president of the United States,” Karl whined, “and he’s accusing somebody of possibly murder. This is different. He’s not a private citizen. He’s the president.”
“Yeah,” McEnany shot back, “Joe Scarborough, if we want to start talking about false accusations, we have quite a few we can go through.”“I’m asking about the president’s allegations,” Karl pressed.
“And I’m replying to you,” McEnany said.
“Mika accused the president of 100,000 deaths and that’s incredibly irresponsible. They’ve dragged his family through the mud. They’ve made false accusations that I won’t go through.”
“They should be held to account for their falsehoods!” she added.“Joe Scarborough should be held to account for saying people will die by taking hydroxychloroquine.”
“Does that justify the president spreading a false conspiracy theory?” Karl persisted.
“I will point you back to Joe Scarborough who laughed and joked about this item,” McEnany said turning the tables, “It’s Joe Scarborough that has to answer these questions.”
