Kayleigh McEnany Lashed Out At The Media For Spreading ‘Disinformation,’ And CNN’s Jim Acosta Had The Perfect Response

CSPAN

In her first briefing with the media in 13 days, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to acknowledge Joe Biden as the President-elect, despite even Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulating Biden. She instead ranted about the “continuation of power,” and when asked for Trump’s thoughts on the Electoral College making the election result official on Monday, McEnany replied, “The president is still involved in ongoing litigation related to the election. Yesterday’s vote was one step in the constitutional process, so I will leave that to him and refer you to the campaign for more on that litigation.” As press secretary, she is part of the campaign, but alas.

The contentious briefing ended with McEnany calling out the mainstream media for not covering the Hunter Biden “scandal” more, if at all (probably because it’s a non-story). “Really interesting turn of events, and good for those who covered what was a story all along and not Russian disinformation,” she said, walking off the podium without fielding any more questions. But that didn’t stop CNN’s Jim Acosta from asking one more: “Isn’t it hypocritical of you to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?”

A good question; an even better comeback. McEnany did not respond.

Acosta later offered a factcheck…
