White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany snapped at a CNN reporter during a first news briefing since Oct. 1, the day before President Donald Trump announced his coronavirus infection and more than a month before the election.

McEnany took a question from the right-wing OAN network’s reporter Chanel Rion, who asked whether the FBI or Department of Justice was investigating claims of voter fraud that have been rejected by courts, and the press secretary claimed that law enforcement had tried to undermine the president since his election four years ago.

“While in 2016 President Trump became the duly-elected president, many sought to undermine him, discredit him, legitimize and deny his victory,” McEnany said. “There were no calls for unity, there were no calls for healing. So while every legal vote is counted, let’s not forget the inexcusable transition or lack thereof that President Trump had to endure in 2016 and four years into his presidency.”

At that point, after just five questions, McEnany ended the news conference, but briefly turned back to the podium to chide CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.

“I don’t call on activists,” McEnany said.

Collins disputed the press secretary’s claim.

“I am not an activist and you haven’t taken questions since Oct. 1 and you just took about five, Kayleigh,” Collins said. “That’s not doing your job, your taxpayer-funded job.”

Collins followed up her complaint a short time later on Twitter.

Ivanka Trump suggested that her father's administration deserved credit for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and other social media users agreed she was right for all the wrong reasons.

Greenhouse gases tumbled 9.2 percent this year, its lowest level in at least three decades, due to the coronavirus pandemic that shut down the U.S. economy, according to a new BloombergNEF study.

The U.S. was inadvertently set back on track to meet its commitments under the Paris climate agreement the Obama administration joined but President Donald Trump left.

Bootlicker’ Marco Rubio smacked down for attacking Biden’s cabinet picks as ‘caretakers of America’s decline’

'So much racism'

Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio suggested he will vote against all of the cabinet picks President-elect Joe Biden announced on Monday. The Florida Republican, an expected 2024 presidential hopeful, appeared especially disturbed by the educational backgrounds, and some are saying the racial and ethnic backgrounds, of Biden's diverse and experienced team.

"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline," Rubio tweeted (lack of proper spacing and punctuation are original to his tweet.) "I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the 'normal' that left us dependent on China"
