As expected, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was inundated with questions about President Trump‘s decision to hold a campaign rally in Tulsa, OK this Saturday. Jim Acosta, actingvery concerned, noted that Oklahoma has experienced an uptick in coronavirus cases recently since the state has begun to reopen.
Kayleigh McEnany Clowns Fake News Media
McEnany responded with a cover of the NY Post. On Tuesday’s front page, the Post exposed a bit of media hypocrisy. On the one hand, NBC News was concerned about Trump‘s upcoming rally and how it will draw tens of thousands of people at a time when we’re supposed to still be social distancing. On the other hand, the outlet glowingly reported on a black trans lives matter rally, which also featured thousands of participants. Why, both the Post and McEnany asked, is one okay and not the other?

then whipped out the front page of the NY Post showing that it’s only okay according to media for people to gather in groups when they’re in the streets.
After fielding what she tallied was her 10th question on campaign rallies, the press secretary instructed the press room to “exhibit that same concern” for protesters who are not social distancing and not wearing masks as they are for Trump campaign goers. Protests and riots have sprung up all over the country after the tragic Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd.
By the way, Acosta wondered, why is Trump holding a rally in the first place since it’s not in support of anything? A defiant McEnany explained that he and his supporters are rallying on behalf of the administration’s successes.
She ended the briefing and walked out by waving the NY Post cover once more, and adding, “I hope we start seeing more consistent headlines.”
Starbucks bans Gear That Supports Black Lives Matter
Starbuckshas revealed that they are not allowing their employees to wear anything that promotes theBlack Lives Matter movement in accordance with their rule to ban accessories that promote “political, religious, or personal” issues.
While Starbucks has tweeted in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, they have drawn the line at allowing their employees to promote any political movements publicly while they are working in stores.
According to an internal bulletin obtained by BuzzFeed News, employees are only permitted to wear buttons and accessories that promote Starbucks or Starbucks events, and this rule would not be changing in light of recent events.
In an interview, a Starbucks spokesperson stressed that while the company is committed to ending systemic racism, they were not prepared to lighten up the dress code in order “to create a safe and welcoming” environment for customers and staff.
“We respect all of our partners’ opinions and beliefs, and encourage them to bring their whole selves to work while adhering to our dress code policy,” the spokesperson continued.
In recent weeks, the company has pledged $1 million to organizations promoting racial equity and has partnered with Arizona State University to design anti-bias resources and training for employees.
Meanwhile, some employees feel that Starbucks’ statements feel “performative” and “shallow.” A worker in Colorado stated, “I don’t think asking for and supporting those who want basic human rights is necessarily political.”
Many employees also pointed out that the company has allowed employees to wear accessories supporting marriage equality and LGBTQ+ rights in the past.
Other employees have lauded Starbucks‘ decision to ban BLM gear, saying that in some ways, it represents an anti-police sentiment.

MEDIA ASKED TRUMP TO PARDON OBAMA FOR HIS CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA
Thank you, Kayleigh. I’d like to switch gears asking about President Obama. We had, an interesting article this morning and i would like to ask you if the President has considered pardoning President Obama for illegally wiretapping and for spying on U.S. citizens and other potential crimes out there, has he considered that?
So I have not spoken to the President about that, but who I did speak to about President Obama unmasking Michael Flynn, the men and women in this room. I haven’t spoken to him on that specific point. I have spoken to him about the matter generally and I laid out a series of questions that any good journalist would want to answer that why people were, I want to follow that. Did anyone pose any questions about Michael Flynn in the unmasking of the President Obama spokesperson?
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany scolded reporters on Friday for its “lack of journalistic curiosity” in what the Trump administration believes to be the miscarriage of justice in the criminal case surrounding former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
CBS News Radio correspondent Steven Portnoy began his line of questioning by invoking remarksPresident Trumpmade in a recent interview where he suggested that people “should be jailed” for the “very obvious crime” that was committed against Flynn.
“You’re an attorney and the president’s spokesperson. Perhaps you could lay out the elements of this crime. What crime was committed and in what way?” Portnoy asked.
“I assume you’re referring to the Obama administration and the unmasking,” McEnany responded.
“What the president calls ‘Obamagate,’ what is it? What are the elements of that crime?” Portnoy clarified.
“Yeah, I’m really glad you asked because there hasn’t been a lot of journalistic curiosity on this front. And I’m very glad that you asked this question,” the press secretary told Portnoy.
McEnany first began by pointing to the “number of questions” that were raised by the “actions” the Obama administration, listing the Democratic National Committee-funded Steele dossier and its involvement in the FISA warrants that were granted to surveil former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page \as well as the unmasking of Flynn by top Obama officials during the transition period between November 2016 and January 2017.
She then noted the Oval Office meeting that took place just days before Trump’s inauguration between President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who McEnany stressed “learned” about the unmasking from Obama and not from the Justice Department.
“We know that there was a lot of wrongdoing in the case of Michael Flynn. The FBI notes, for instance, that said, ‘Should we,’ quote, ‘get him to lie,’ as they pontificated their strategy,” McEnany continued. “We know that the identity of this three-decade general was leaked to the press — a criminal leak to the press of his identity in violation of his Fourth Amendment rights. These are very serious questions. They’ve been ignored by the media for far too long. And I’m very glad that I think that is the second question that I have fielded on Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, because justice does matter. Those questions, they matter.”
Portnoy then asked what specifically was the “crime,” which McEnany reiterated was the leaking of Flynn’s name to the press in January 2017.
She then laid out other moments from Obama officials.
“if you want to start talking about wrongdoing in the administration, I’m happy to go through Andy McCabe leaking to The Wall Street Journal and then lying about it, happy to talk about James Clapper lying before Congress, saying the NSA does not monitor phone calls. That was an inaccuracy, to say the least, if not a lie,” McEnany listed. “And John Brennan telling Congress that the bogus Steele dossier played no role in the Russia probe, when, in fact, we know it did and was the basis of attaining FISA warrants. So there’s a lot of mistruths there that were said, many of them under oath, so I would point you to those and the many other real questions that I hope you all will pursue.”
The CBS News Radio reporter then pressed McEnany if the individuals she listed were the people the president thought should be “in jail,” but she pushed back, insisting that journalists should look into what she “laid out.”
“That is, after all, the job of reporters, to answer the very questions that I’ve laid out, and I hope you guys will take the time to do it,” McEnany told Portnoy.

We’re Here To Help Americans, “You’re Here For A Different Reason It Seems”
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway shuts down a question from CBS’s Paul Reid about whether there will be representation for small businesses on the task force to re-open the economy.
Conway said the announced list of members “is less exhaustive than it is illustrative.”
“We don’t pick who the heads of the sports commission leagues or which CEOs of companies want to help,” Conway said.
Reid asked: “But you do pick your task force — you could pick small businesses, you could pick other people or groups. Who is this?”
CBS’ Paula Reid sounded like a bratty teenage bitch on her period, not a professional journalist asking the leader of the free world a question.
“Paula I actually don’t know what’s happened to you, respectfully. I don’t know why you’ve changed ad you’re in briefing room screaming at Anthony Fauci and the president… But that aside, I’ll answer the question about how they’re going to help America, which is why I’m here,” Conway said. “I think you’re here for a different reason it seems.”
“I’m here and the council has stepped up because they want to help Americans.”
Not Only is Paula Reid a Banshee wailing and shrieking with cantankerous malevolence. She is also a married to a traitor.
