WH Press Secretary Clashes With Jim Acosta After Suggesting Trump Has Never Intentionally Lied

Published

During a heated exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared to suggest that Donald Trump has never intentionally lied during his time as president.

After being called upon, Acosta asked McEnany if Trump should be fact-checked on Twitter.

“…especially this president, who has made so many false and misleading statements that have put fact-checkers to work across the world,” Acosta said, adding that the Trump administration is “trying to silence fact-checking.”

McEnany, visibly irritated, then claimed that it was the “mainstream media” that needed the fact-checking, not Trump.

Acosta pointed out that news outlets make mistakes from time to time but nevertheless corrects those mistakes, unlike Trump.

“You have pledged in this briefing room to never lie to the American people,” Acosta said. “Are you saying that the President of the United States has never lied to the public before?”

McEnany replied that Trump’s “intent is to always give truthful information” before launching back into a list of the media’s failures.

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
