Kayleigh McEnany scolds CNNís Jim Acosta over Trump coronavirus question
Fox News ^ | September 22, 2020 | Brian Flood

“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 shot back, “The president is telling people the truth.”

Acosta interrupted, repeating that Trump said coronavirus “affects virtually nobody” and said he’s not telling the truth.

“Jim, but, you’re again taking the president out of context. I have his full quote here and you’re right that he was referring to young people. He said this,” McEnany said before Acosta interrupted again.

“I’m not taking it out of context,” the CNN reporter said.

“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....

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck said McEnany “obliterated” Acosta with the response.

“As usual," Houck said, "listen to how Acosta wasn't really asking questions, but instead offering a commentary blaming Trump for COVID deaths.”

Jim Acosta is such a boor. He’s like the chief idiot in his journolist village filled with idiots.

200,000 deaths FROM the WuFlu is a fake number.

Kayleigh’s husband is a pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays.
He needs to come up and bean Acosta.

He was banned, if I remember correctly. Some liberal asshole judge demanded he be put back, because you know, it’s illegal (or something) for someone to decide who they allow in their own house.

The reporters went in their with their Journo-List talking points - I heard “200,000 deaths” half-dozen or more times.

Actually, it was a Trump appointed judge that “demanded he be put back.”

Okay. A liberal asshole judge who fooled Trump into nominating him.

Trying to keep the virus in the news. They know people are sick of it and are ready for normal life. It’s all they have. Any rationally thinking person can see the great job Trump’s team has done in response and no one blames him for the deaths. They are so absurd it’s laughable.

No one ever explains how the deaths are counted. We all know that they labeled every death a covid death whether it was or not. This is never discussed by anyone. Wish the WH would push back on the 200,000 number.

” 200,000 deaths”

CDC says less than 10k deaths COVID alone.

They could ban him simply on the grounds that press passes are only issued to actual journalists.

He was barred. The WH took his press credential away and the courts ordered the WH to give it back.
