Kayleigh McEnany Smacks CNN’s Acosta for Ridiculous Question

Gage Skidmore, Flickr.

Do not mess with Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. At Tuesday’s White House press briefing McEnany put CNN’s senior White House correspondent, Jim Acosta in his place after he attempted to paint Trump in a negative light by using a partial quote from an Ohio campaign rally regarding the coronavirus.

Acosta tried to twist Trump’s words by alleging that the president said the Coronavirus “affects virtually nobody.” The correspondent conveniently left out the remainder of Trump’s quote which clarifies the fact that while children can contract the virus the mortality rate is virtually incalculable.

“I think he was talking about younger Americans, He said it ‘affects virtually nobody,” Acosta said. “But he said to Bob Woodward that ‘it’s not just older people, it’s young people, too,’ at 200,000 deaths shouldn’t be telling people the truth about this virus at his rallies?”

McEnany quickly called out the reporter for grossly taking the comment out of context before reading Trump’s entire quote from the Ohio rally.

“You are taking it out of context because you’re making an assertion that he’s not giving critical information when, in fact, he is and I will underscore exactly what he said,” McEnany said. “He said this, ‘You know, in some states thousands of people, and they’ve had nobody young, below the age of 18 like nobody. They have a strong immune system.’ That is factually true, you can go to the America Academy of Pediatrics website, the Children’s Hospital Association and they list a number of states that have had zero pediatric deaths.”

McEnany was able to smack the reporter down when he repeatedly interrupts without a blink by listing multiple states with reports no pediatric deaths from COVID-19.

“Yes, it is exactly as I read it to you, that in several states, they have had zero pediatric deaths. I have the entire list here: Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, and the list goes on. As you may not know, Jim, the COVID has a .01 mortality rate for people under the age of 18, so it is not a disease that affects young people in the same way as older people, which is the exact point the president was making last night,” McEnany says effectively silencing Acosta.

Nice try Jim, but you’re no match for Kayleigh McEnany.

You are all wrong. The damn CDC has already said that only 9210 people in the US have died FROM COVID. The rest had 2.6 co-morbidities. So if you want to talk truth how about you talk about the REAL truth.

Yea, I have been hearing that even though some patients did die, it was not directly due to the China virus.

You are wrong. The CDC instructed doctors to put on the death certificates that if the patient had Covid, even if Asymptomatic, and died of maybe a heart attack or stroke or old age, they were to be identified as Covid deaths. How many fell in the category. I bet about half of the numbers put out there. I don’t think there were as many Covid deaths as they said in the U.S. The CDC is in bed with the left and they created a lie so that they could try to make it look bad for President Trump and get him out of office. The bad thing about that is it made them look even worse and Trump even stronger. Impeachment failed so this was was they tried. The people of America are wising up to the left and seeing what they are about. Trump 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the positive side they could say that the number of deaths from heart attacks, cancer and strokes have all reduced in the year 2020. So that means we have better health care for those ailments.

Where are the stats about cancer, heart, strokes and accident deaths during the same time period?? We get all the COVID19 numbers every day and a lot of them died from the pre-existing conditions but if they had the virus they were attributed to the COVID19 deaths. It is disingenuous at the very least and it seems like outright fraud to us! The CDC said that only about 6% are strictly Virus deaths but the Left does not want to hear or acknowledge that!

A lot of people believe this crap and not enough people wise up and see the truth! Even if 200K died from COVID19 it’s a comparatively small number out of 320+ Million. What are the statistics on Cancer, Hear and Accident deaths? They don’t tell us about that all day long every day! We are getting very sick about all this Propaganda and hope the Left gets a drubbing in November!

A landslide, it going to put most dim wits out of office if we can make sure the voter fraud is minimal. Watchers at polls and definitely inside the vote counters sanctum. The vote you made does not count if the vote counter dumps it and loads in fraudulent votes. And that was proven as a fact in 2018.

Florida and AZ suffered from that. Florida stopped it But Darling Ducey in AZ let them elect Sin that way. Watch out for Gabby’s lying cheating husband in AZ against Martha. Vote Gop, Martha supports Trump.

Remember Ducey let them get away with mysterious polls whose votes were counted in his vote counter sanctum. Watchers this time and accountablility in his sanctum for this lousy dim wit vote counter in Phoenix, AZ!! NOT TO BE TRUSTED AND WATCHED LIKE A HAWK SEEKING PREY By MARTHA’S SIDE!!

And the real truth is this was a big lie the experts like little man Farcey pushed for their dim wit cohorts to create this mess as they were losing and hoped to use the mess to win votes and intimidate the nation especially with the brownshits of Soros as in antifa idiots and bowe L movement, etc.. This was a nazi tactic from Soros and reminds me of Germany circa 1930s. Hitler was his idol and these stunts worked in Nazi Germany!

Would someone in the government develop some balls and put that man out of our country or jail him. He is behind most of this. And we can say his name today but if the dim wits win tomorrow he will be treated like the demi god he has said he feels like! Colossal narcissist, (even worse than Bozo and Moose), it seems and crooked and dirty as the worst of criminals in this country come.

Take this snake down and either arrest him for sedition or run him out of this country. I am still wondering who brought him here after the war. He was a collaborator, let israel have him.

And this is exactly what Univision does too. They twist the narrative and will not clearly state what the president said. I believe one time they asked the president what would be more effective a mask or a vaccine? POTUS responded the vaccine. They right away accused him of how can he say that when a vaccine has not been proven. Univision was not specific in saying if the two were available at the same time. I would have answered the same way POTUS did. They twisted the question in spanish to make POTUS look bad.

Always—because Trump is far too smart. They know that if they ask straightforward questions, they get the unvarnished truth. Therefore they have to ask twisted questions, in an effort to try to trap him.

It’s truly pitiful the way Univision treats its Spanish speaking viewers due to their extreme almost built-in leftist bias. So, their audience never gets the straight truth.

Viewers who prefer their TV to be Spanish language should use Telemundo. They are a very reliable and straight up honest news source, and they have better programming.

But a mythical vaccine is not available and most likely won’t be available, and the actual contents of the vaccine, if known, will cause a major rejection of it by most Americans. If the govt really was knowledgeable about the virus and the immune system, they would be talking about the supplements that can safely help our immune systems fight the virus, which ARE available now, which include Vit C and Vit D. Trump may have been right about the hydroxylchloriquine and zinc, but he is wrong about the vaccine.

you’re right in a sense.but i think it was facebook that censored a an article from over 200 doctorrs and nurses on the front line that said hydroxy does help with many patients.not a cure mind you but proven to work for some people.but because trump siad it it’s automatically false.i would hope that people would understand that him saying a vaccine could be available soon would try to temper fears.but it may not be available for months because we don’t know!

Kayleigh McEnany is quite good at her job, so she has very little time for CNN stooges like Acosta.

Anyone but Acosta would be embarrassed at the number of times he’s been slapped down since the beginning of the Trump administration. But he’s not embarrassed at all.

That says more about him than anything he might say himself.

So, WHEN are we going to STOP PLAYING THIS PLANNEDemic GAME??!?!?!?!?! So, YES!!!……“affects virtually nobody”!!!! END the BS NOW!!!!!!!

Sorry Dawnie……COVID-19 has directly and indirectly caused a lot of deaths, most of which have been people of all ages with cronic medical conditions and elderly seniors especially those with bad health! I reference all the elderly in nursing homes in New York and all over the country!
The CDC did not release enough information about the deaths. All a lot of people heard was the relatively few thousands who died as a “direct cause” from COVID-19. By far most died from “indirect causes” of COVID-19 like pneumonia, blue clots in the lungs, heart attacks, strokes, different organ failures like liver, kidneys, lungs, etc. BUT all these people would be alive today if they had not gotten COVID-19!
COVID-19 has either mutated to a less dangerous form or people have developed a mild immunity since it has been in the air and on surfaces all around us for many months! It seems to still be quite lethal and dangerous to people in bad health and seniors.
I am also so tired of people blaming DJT for COVID-19! The CDC, he and his administration did a great job since NO ONE ALIVE TODAY had any experience with anything like this “bug”! They had a huge learning curve or they had to learn what they needed to change and do as they went along. A Dem President would have had the exact same experience DJT and company had to go through! But, the hypocritical Dems never miss an opportunity to criticize DJT!

Matter of curiosity, why is Jim Acosta still allowed to waste time on attempting to create propaganda at these press briefings? Why is Jim Acosta allowed to constantly be interrupting and disrespectful without consequences. – It is more than annoying for those of us were forced to put up with this nonsense. Acosta is nothing more than a seedy little yellow journalist whose rude conduct is in and of itself outlandish behavior even for penchant 10-year-old’s behavior. Replace this reporter with someone who understands even a modicum proper behavior.

“It affects elderly people elderly people with heart problems and other problems if they have other problems that’s what it really affects that’s it you know in some states thousands of people nobody young take your hat off to the young because they have a hell of an immune system but it affects virtually nobody it’s an amazing thing by the way open your schools.”

Coronavirus: 500,000 cases among US children after summer surge

After 70,000 new cases in two weeks, the total passes the half a million mark, with minorities and the disadvantaged faring worst.

Wednesday 9 September 2020

More than 500,000 children in the United States have now been diagnosed with coronavirus – as the rate of new cases continues to rise.

Over 70,000 COVID-19 infections were reported among youngsters in the two weeks between 20 August and 3 September, the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) said.

This marks a 16% rise and brings the national total to 513,415, while at least 103 children have died from the illness…

Acosta should be kicked out of the press conference. He always spews his propaganda before trying to ask a question. Don’t the press know how to ask a question. They all want to spew their thoughts/lies before finally asking a question. Then when they don’t get the answer they want they argue with the one at the podium. Maybe getting rid of Acosta would show an example.

Acosta is a media hack. (Wanted to say a media a**hole, but refrained.) She needs to, once and for all shut him down permanently by simply saying to him “Quit interrupting me while I’m answering you. If you persist I’ll simply not call on you anymore.”
And then, because he’s the rude a**hole that he is, he will, and she can. She had warned him.
