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

Published

on

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.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Published

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
