White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had some contentious exchanges today with the media gathered to hear updates about the vaccines.
Operation Warp Speed was a worldwide effort led by the Trump admin to identify, manufacture, and distribute vaccines and they should be commended for it. It was truly a historic achievement.
Pfizer announced more amazing results today and filed for emergency use which means that that vaccine will be available soon.
Towards the end of the briefing, a reporter yelled out, “When will you admit you lost the election?”
Kayleigh McEnany ignored the reporter and moved on until she had a sharp back and forth with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins over a similar question.
Kayleigh McEnany paused before delivering the knockout blow: “I don’t call on activists.”
Collins responded that she was not an activist but Kayleigh was already halfway out the door.
