On Monday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany hectored a reporter who fact-checked President Donald Trump on his criticisms of Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD), insisting that she refer to the president with his title.
McEnany was swiftly deluged in scorn, with some commenters pointing out she never bothered to extend the same courtesy to President Barack Obama.
