(Liberty Bell) – On Monday, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany scolded the press for failing to raise questions about the biggest and most distressing story of the weekend.
The death of Americans.
Of course, what is supposed to be a free, independent press is an anti-Trump corporate complex that is far more interested in politicizing press events than they are in actually getting the news that matters the most to Americans.
During Monday’s question-and-answer period, McEnany was subjected to plenty of questions about a tweet Trump issued this morning about a weeks-old NASCAR incident involving a confederate flag, but few about the increased violence in American cities.
Just the News reports:
McEnany wondered aloud why the journalists opted not to focus on the hundreds of Americans who were shot and killed this weekend in major cities, including five children.
NBC’s Peter Alexander began the round by asking why the president supports flying the confederate flag, in reference to a tweet sent by the president this morning. McEnany responded that the question was a mischaracterization of the message’s intent, which was to point out that the media’s rush to judgment about the NASCAR incident’s status as a hate crime was harmful and divisive to Americans.
One reporter asked why NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace should “apologize,” per POTUS’s tweet. After the FBI determined that the rope hanging in Wallace’s garage was not, as first suspected, a noose, but rather a door pull fastened to the garage in 2019, Wallace appeared on Don Lemon’s show and said this:
“It was a noose. Whether tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose. So, it wasn’t directed at me but somebody tied a noose. That’s what I’m saying.”
The Press Secretary repeatedly told the room that the president “has not given an opinion one way or another” on the issue of whether NASCAR should have banned the flag from their sport.
One reporter asked if the president thinks the confederate flag should be flown in Washington, DC.
These people are propagandists. Who takes them seriously as reporters anymore?!
Not McEnany, one imagines.
The Press Secretary concluded the presser by telling the correspondents that she was “a little dismayed” by the disproportionate number of questions about the confederate flag incident and the five children killed over the weekend.
“I was asked probably 12 questions about the confederate flag, this president is about action and I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question about the deaths in this country over this weekend … I didn’t receive one question about five children who were killed,” said the Secretary.
