Kayleigh McEnany Obliterates Room Full Of Screaming Reporters

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany dismissed reporters who shouted questions at the end of her Friday press briefing by declaring that she doesn’t call on “activists” before walking away from the podium.

McEnany took questions from several reporters, but Playboy’s Brian Karem repeatedly shouted at her during the briefing with questions about when President Trump will admit he lost the election.

“Do you understand the definition of sedition? Do you understand that he lost?” Karem shouted as McEnany was wrapping up. Another reporter appeared to shout a question, too, prompting the press secretary to return to the microphone.

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

“I’m not an activist,” a reporter was heard saying as McEnany exited.


CNN’s Kaitlan Collins confirmed after the briefing that she was the reporter who irked the press secretary. “She called me ‘an activist,’” Collins tweeted. “It’s understandable why someone who hasn’t done their job — taking questions from reporters — in weeks would confuse someone else doing theirs with activism.”

So you’re telling me that reporters can literally shout and insult our Press Secretary, yet they claim to be “unbiased?”
