Kayleigh McEnany busted by CNN reporter for ‘unbelievable’ lies about Trump and the Confederate flag

Published

CNN reporter Abby Phillip on Tuesday busted White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for blatantly lying about President Donald Trump’s defense of the Confederate flag.

During a CNN segment on Trump’s attacks on NASCAR for banning drivers from displaying the Confederate flag on their vehicles, Phillip noted how McEnany tried to pretend that the president hadn’t actually come out in defense of the flag.

“I mean, he has for many years, since he’s been president, defended Confederate symbols going all the way back to the Charlottesville debate.,” she said. “So, it’s really unbelievable that Kayleigh McEnany would somehow pretend that when the president was weighing in — she claimed that it was just one word at the bottom of a tweet. Well, it was actually a whole sentence that referred to the Confederate flag.”

Phillip also called out McEnany for denying that Trump supporters regularly wave the Confederate flag at his rallies, when a simple search of past video footage shows that’s not true.

“Asked about Confederate flags being flown at the president’s rallies, she said that, you know, noncampaign merchandise isn’t allowed to be flown at his rallies,” Phillip said. “So I went back to go see, because I have seen Confederate flags at the president’s rallies, and they were actually fairly commonplace back in 2016 and 2015… When I was in Tulsa just a couple of weeks ago, there were Confederate flags all over the place.”

Senior officials battling White House over urgent risk of reopening schools

Published

Public health officials are increasingly worried that states -- especially in the South -- are not seriously considering the coronavirus risks associated with reopening schools.

Trump administration officials have insisted to governors that reopening schools could be done safely, but senior officials have recently pressed White House officials to improve their messaging about the potential risks, reported The Daily Beast.

“If you have Trump going out there and saying everything is fine there’s a risk that that’s what people are going to think going back,” said one senior official. “There’s a real possibility that counties won’t implement all the measures outlined in the [Centers for Disease Control] guidelines and will just say, ‘Look, we’re doing the best we can and that’s it.’ There’s no one to enforce that stuff.”

A South Carolina woman this week was caught on video going on a wild rant about Jesus and communism after a police officer pulled her over because her anti-vaccination signs were completely obscuring her car's rear window.

The video shows that the woman was driving a car that was covered in signs that protested not just economic shut downs, but also simply testing people for COVID-19.

After the officer pulled her over, she demanded to see his badge number and started yelling at him.

The officer tried to calm her down and told her there was no reason to be upset.

"Oh, no reason to get upset just because we're in communist Greenville, South Carolina?!" she yelled back. "I am not being disorderly! I have freedom of speech! You're being disorderly!"
