McEnany Gives Reporters Homework During Presser: ‘You Guys Have Three Days’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany stood up before a group of journalists and challenged them to have more investigative curiosity when it came to the unmasking of retired Lt. General Michael Flynn.

She also pressed them to look more into the Obamagate scandal and how his administration officials used tools at their disposal to unlawfully investigate the Trump campaign.

“I laid out a series of questions that any good journalist would want to answer about why people were unmasked … and I just wanted to follow up with you guys on that. Did anyone take it upon themselves to pose any questions about Michael Flynn and unmasking the President Obama spokesperson?” McEnany asked the group of reporters at Friday’s briefing.

But, none of them had done what she had asked.

BizPac Review reports McEnany then gave them a veritable schoolroom “spanking”:

Clearly annoyed by the media’s inability to perform even the most basic-level research, the press secretary chose Friday to approach them with a different strategy — namely, by treating them like little children and displaying the previously read questions to them using easily decipherable, kid-friendly visual slides.

And McEnany played the part of a teacher to the journalist—instructing them how to do their jobs.

“Okay, so I would like to lay out a series of questions and perhaps if I write them out in a slide format, maybe we’re visual learners and you guys will follow up with journalistic curiosity,” she said, turning on a projector screen with a slideshow of the questions she wanted them to answer.

“So number one, why did the Obama administration use opposition research funded by a political organization and filled with foreign dirt to surveil members of the Trump campaign?”  the first slide read per the report.

“Number two, why was Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn unmasked — not by the intel community entirely, but by Obama’s chief of staff, by the former vice president, Joe Biden, by Susan Rice, by the treasury secretary?” McEnany continued.

“I mean, this is extraordinary. And you know, if it were political appointees in the Trump administration, I can guarantee you I’d have questions in my inbox right now, but apparently Obama’s spokesperson does not,” she added.

Number three via BizPac Review: “Why was Flynn’s identity leaked in a criminal act? It is a criminal act to leak the identity of Michael Flynn to the press, but it happened. Where are the questions to Obama’s spokesperson? Because my team would be running around this building should this have happened under the Trump administration.”

“Why did the DOJ, Sally Yates, learn about the unmasking from President Obama?” the press secretary asked as question number four. “So much for going by the book as Susan Rice said three times. Thou doth protest too much, Susan Rice.”

“And then finally, question number five, why did James Clapper, John Brennan, Samantha Power and Susan Rice privately admit under oath they had no evidence of collusion while saying the opposite publicly?” she asked.

She’s expecting results this time and gave the reporters the remainder of the weekend to get some answers.

“It’s a long weekend. You guys have three days to follow up on those questions, and I certainly hope the next time I ask, some hands go up because Obama’s spokesperson should be asked those questions. Because President Trump’s spokespeople certainly would be,” she concluded.

  1. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
