They have no idea what just hit them.
According to the Daily Caller, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed CNN’s Jim Acosta stating “there is no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media.”
“That happened around 6:00 yesterday evening,” Acosta explained. “It took until about nine in the morning for the president recognize that on Twitter. What took him so long?”
“We hit 100,000 yesterday evening, so 13 hours for him to recognize that and tweet about it,” Acosta said again.
“As I noted, he lowered the flags to half-staff,” McEnany replied. “The president has said one death is too many. He takes this very seriously.”
“Shouldn’t the president be fact-checked, especially this president who has made so many false and misleading statements that has put fact-checkers to work across the world?” Acosta asked “These 18,000 false or misleading statements according to the Washington Post, if there’s any president out there we should be fact-checking, or political leader that should be fact-checked, isn’t it President Trump? Aren’t you trying to silence fact-checking by going after Twitter like this?”
“If you’re going to get into the fact-checking business, there is no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media that has been continually wrong about a number of things,” McEnany shot back, going on to list several that stood out in her mind.
“So if anyone needs to be fact-checked, I think it should be the media,” she concluded. You can read the full article here.
