(RightWing.org) – White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a firecracker who knows how to stand her ground.
According to a new report by Mediaite, McEnany shut down a CNN reporter on camera after the reporter tried to disrupt a White House press conference to attack President Donald Trump. McEnany silenced her by saying, “Stop filibustering. Let your colleagues ask questions.”
McEnany Slams Reporter
The dramatic confrontation came when Kaitlan Collins, CNN’s White House correspondent, kept questioning McEnany about claims of Russian interference in the last election. McEnany had already spent several minutes talking about COVID-19 transmission rates with Collins – but when she tried to move on to the next reporter, Collins switched topics to Russia. Finally, the popular press secretary ran out of patience and told Collins to stop hogging the limelight.

Not The First Time
This isn’t the first time a CNN reporter has disrupted a White House press conference; in fact, it’s a regular occurrence. Jim Acosta is a frequent culprit. Last month, he repeatedly pestered McEnany with questions about social distancing at President Trump’s rallies, provoking McEnany to show him a New York Post headline complaining about MSM hypocrisy.
Journalists have repeatedly criticized the administration over the infection risk at rallies, but give huge BLM demonstrations a free pass. McEnany won’t let them get away with these double standards, and they don’t like it.
