CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins criticized White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany in a tweet on Friday after McEnany referred to her as an “activist,” claiming that McEnany does not do her job.
McEnany made the remark after closing out Friday’s press conference by highlighting how the media and Democrats sought to delegitimize President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential victory.
“While in 2016, President Trump became the duly elected president. Many sought to undermine him, discredit him, de-legitimized him, and deny his victory,” McEnany said. “There were no calls for unity. There were no calls for healing. So while every legal vote is counted, let us not forget the inexcusable transition, or lack thereof that President Trump had to endure in 2016, and four years into his presidency.”
McEnany took questions from numerous reporters throughout the press conference but declined to call on Collins at the end.
“I don’t call on activists,” McEnany told Collins.
“I’m not an activist,” Collins claimed.
