Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany pushed back against CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s characterization of the National Guard as “pummeling” peaceful citizens exercising their First Amendment rights.
The press has accused the Guard of using tear gas, rubber bullets and “munitions” on protesters.
“The First Amendment … does not give anyone the right to assault private citizens and to assault police officers,” said McEnany in her preamble to the question and answer period. She said the greatest demonstration of protest was the 1963, nonviolent “March on Washington” led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
