White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany let loose on CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during Thursday’s press briefing.
Acosta, after asking more than once why it took President Donald Trump 13 hours to tweet about the fact that the United States surpassed 100,000 deaths due to the coronavirus pandemic, questioned whether or not Twitter’s move to fact-check the president on another issue was warranted.
“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?”
McEnany responded by noting that even prior to the Memorial Day holiday President Trump had ordered the flags across the country lowered to half staff in order to recognize the lives lost to coronavirus.
