Mic Drop: Kayleigh McEnany Shreds Liberal Media Propagandist — ‘I Don’t Call On Activists’ (Video)

During a contentious press briefing on Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany went into “beast mode,” shredding CNN propagandist Kaitlan Collins, telling her, “I don’t call on activists.”

According to Newsbusters:

Following her trademark closing statement (more on that shortly), McEnany closed her binder and thanked those called on for “very good and substantive questions,” but still irked by Thursday’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing, reporters began screeching (including Brian Karem blabbering about sedition).

When Collins complained about there not having been more Q&A, McEnany leaned back into the podium microphones to say, “I don’t call on activists.”

Collins replied: “I’m not an activist and you haven’t taken questions since October 1st and you just took about five.”

MCENANY: Also, something I would note is just as we talk about transfer of power in the election and its worth remembering, this president was never given an orderly transition of power. His presidency was never accepted. [BRIAN KAREM YELLING] In fact, before the election — his election, we know Crossfire Hurricane was launched by Peter Strzok to pursue a baseless allegations [sic] about the President’s ties with Russia, that’s before he was President trying to subvert the will of the American people. We know in August, Peter Strzok wrote a text message about an insurance policy against the Trump presidency, once again trying to silence the voice of the American people in 2016. We know in October that there was a FISA warrant — a FISA warrant taken out to spy on the Trump campaign. Then the American people spoke and they spoke commandingly in electing President Trump despite all of the odds and what happened after he was elected? You had 70 lawmakers say we’re not coming to his inauguration, Democratic lawmakers. You had Elizabeth Warren saying we are going to obstruct the Trump transition by urging the Government Accountability Office to investigate the incoming Trump transition. In January of that year, you have President Obama having a “by-the-book” meeting where they talked about the Logan Act — using that act to go after Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. Just before the inauguration, BuzzFeed promoting and publishing this bogus Steele dossier that has been widely developed and then for two years, you had the baseless Mueller investigation, which searched for collusion, found none, and exonerated President Trump while, in 2016, President Trump became the duly elected president, many sought to undermine him, discredit him, delegitimize him, and deny him his victory. There were no calls for unity. There were no calls for healing. So while illegal vote is counted, let us not forget the unexcusable transition or lack thereof that President Trump had to endure in 2016 and for years into his presidency. Thank you, everyone for the very good and substantive questions today.


KAITLAN COLLINS: You haven’t taken questions —

MCENANY: I don’t call on activists.

COLLINS: — I’m not an activist and you haven’t taken questions since October 1st and you just took about five.

Collins, like so many others in the so-called “news” media aren’t just activists.  They’re propagandists with one objective — take Trump down by any means necessary, and they have spent the entire Trump administration acting childish and petulant, but it seems their behavior since November’s election has gotten even worse.
