White House press sec Kayleigh McEnany HECKLED with cries of ‘when will you admit you lost election?’
THE White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was heckled with cries of "when will you admit you lost election?" during today's briefing.
McEnany was touting the Trump administration's coronavirus response when someone demanded to know when the outgoing president would concede to Joe Biden.
During the Q&A session, she evaded the question of a power handover and said Trump meeting with two Michigan officials later today was "not an advocacy meeting."
She also told the press pool that she and Trump aides hadn't been told not to engage with members of Biden's transition team "to that end."
"His election was never accepted," she said of Trump's presidency. "While every legal vote is counted let us not forget the inexcusable transition."
McEnany cited the impeachment relating to Ukraine amongst other perceived slights and declined to answer when Trump would concede.
As she left the podium, McEnany told CNN's Kaitlan Collins that she "didn't call on activists."
"That's not doing your job, Kayleigh" Collins shot back. "Your taxpayer-funded job."
The conference was ended just over 20 minutes from the time McEnany started speaking.
Collins immediately tweeted: "Appearing in her professional capacity, @PressSec takes only a handful of questions in her first briefing since Oct. 1.
"Asked why can’t call on all reporters — given it’s been so long and there are not many of us due to social distancing — she called me 'an activist.'"
