Video of the Day: Kayleigh McEnany Shreds Media Propagandists On Social Distancing Hypocrisy

As we all know by now, the so-called “mainstream media” has become the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party and they’re not even trying to hide their bias.  On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shredded the propagandists for their hypocrisy.

The exchange began when CNN propagandist Jim Acosta tried to shame McEnany over a Trump rally to be held this weekend in Tulsa.

“Kayleigh, in the last day, 96 people in Tulsa have contracted the coronavirus. Wondering about this rally coming up on Saturday, will the President or the White House take responsibility if people get sick and catch the coronavirus at this rally on Saturday,” he began.

After she noted that temperature checks would be conducted with hand sanitizers and masks made available, Acosta whined that the rally would not allow for social distancing.  That’s when McEnany unloaded.

Here’s a partial transcript as provided by Newsbusters:

MCENANY: It’s a personal choice of individuals as to what to do, but if we want to talk about internal coherence, I believe that the media needs to work on internal coherence. This wonderful New York Post story. I don’t think Steven Nelson’s here, but good job to the New York Post, highlights the hypocrisy of the media where this is okay, protesting. This is not okay, Trump rallies. I mean, it’s really remarkable and I think the American people have taken notice when, for instance, NBC News tweets at 5:05 p.m. on June 14 “Rally for Black trans lives draws packed crowd to Brooklyn Museum plaza,” seeming to be lauding the protests and then less than an hour and a half later, they say “President Trump plans to rally his supporters next Saturday for the first time since most of the country was shuttered by coronavirus. But health experts are questioning that decision.” CBS had a similar logically inconsistent tweet.

ACOSTA: But these are protesters protesting against injustice, against racism and police brutality. This is a rally, a political rally. There — there are not going to be demonstrations for any kind of cause other than supporting the President and I go back to my original question: Will the White House, will the President take responsibility if there are people who catch the coronavirus and get sick?

Ouch…

Here’s the video.  The pertinent portion starts at the 7:24 mark:

She responded to other propagandists who tried to ask the same question, and, Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck said, finally expressed a degree of frustration with the Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Ballhaus, guessing that hers was “probably question number ten on rallies and while we appreciate the great concern for rallygoers, you should just exhibit that same concern, for the protesters who are out there, who are not socially distancing in many cases and not wearing masks.”

The bottom line is this:  According to the propagandists in the liberal media, protests and riots held by Black Lives Matter and their allies are okay, but Trump holding a political rally is not.  Fortunately, the White House has someone who is not afraid to call them out for their blatant hypocrisy.
