McEnany fires back at NYT reporter

On Thursday, Kayleigh McEnany called out a New York Times reporter on Twitter for what she deemed a misleading post after answering questions in front of the White House.

McEnany discussed the president’s consultation with medical experts and potential outbreaks as the country reopens.

On two occasions, reporters prompted the White House press secretary about the health of the press and vice president, including procedures in place should these leaders fall ill to the coronavirus. 

The tweet, written by New York Times White House correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie Habberman, read: “@PressSec calls for reporters to celebrate instead of just cover in gaggle:  “The President’s healthy. The Vice President’s healthy and I think that’s something all reporters should be celebrating and the American people as well.”

McEnany fired back, stating that the “tweet by a New York Times reporter is misleading.”

“I was TWICE asked a hypothetical about the health of the President and Vice President,” she wrote, including an attachment documenting her full response to reporters.

McEnany’s comments come as she keeps a line of fire on the mainstream media. In a recent interview with “Fox & Friends,” the press secretary held the media to a higher standard, saying they were making the current pandemic “all about themselves.”

In her meeting at the White House on Thursday, McEnany also answered questions regarding the new $3 trillion economic stimulus package proposed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats.

“We certainly do not support the Pelosi bill full of Democratic wishes, like giving direct payments with American taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants,” she stated. “That’s unacceptable. As for plans for Phase Four, the president said he’s taking his time and being thoughtful about this.”
