White House Reporter Silenced By Kayleigh McEnany After Attempted Gotcha Question Backfires — ‘You Were Prepared For That’

WASHINGTON— Kayleigh McEnany who was recently promoted to President Trump’s Press Secretary is proving that she is ready take on any reporter. It’s a jungle out there and when it comes to facts, she’s got plenty of them on her side.

Yesterday, at the end of her press briefing, McEnany was asked a gotcha question by reporter Jeff Mason. She handled it brilliantly and had a ‘drop the mic’ moment. Mason asked, 

“Kayleigh, in a previous life, before you were Press Secretary, you worked for the campaign. And you made a comment, I believe on Fox, in which you said President Trump will not allow the Coronavirus to come to this country. Given what has happened since then, obviously, would you like to take that back?”

Kayleigh fired back,

“Well, first let me note. I was asked a question on Fox Business about the President’s travel restrictions. I noted what was the intent behind those travel restrictions, which is, we will not see the Coronavirus come here. We will not see terrorism come here, referring to an earlier set of travel restrictions.” She continued,

“I guess I would turn the question back on the media and ask similar questions.”

“Does Vox want to take back that they proclaim that the Coronavirus would not be a deadly pandemic?”

“Does the Washington Post want to take back that they told Americans to, ‘get a grip, the flu is bigger than the Coronavirus?'”

“Does the Washington Post, likewise, want to take back that, our brains are causing us to exaggerate the threat of the Coronavirus?”

“Does the New York Times want to take back that, ‘Fear of the virus may be spreading faster than the virus itself?’” 

“Does NPR want to take back that the flu was a much bigger threat than the Coronavirus?”

“And finally, once again, the Washington Post. Would they like to take back that the government should not respond aggressively to the virus? I’ll leave you with those questions and maybe you’ll have some answers in a few days?”

When McEnany was leaving the room the mic was still on and you could hear someone say, ‘you were prepared for that’.

A clip of the back and forth was posted to Twitter by Nathan Brand, which caught the eye of actor James Woods who responded,

“Like gutting a perch…”

Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in tweeting,

“This is amazing. Watch WH Press Sec @kayleighmcenany torch fake news media outlets on their BS propaganda and fake news ‘reporting.’”
