Watch and Read: Kayleigh McEnany Lectures the Press Corps on Obamagate

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

There’s really not a lot of commentary to add to this one. At the closing of her White House press briefing on Friday, the increasingly-great Kayleigh McEnany spent the final two minutes lecturing the worthless, 100% incurious White House press corps like my Cost Accounting professor used to lecture his hungover students on Monday mornings.

It was truly glorious.

Here is a clip of those final two minutes, followed by a transcript lovingly prepared by yours truly:

 

Transcript:

[There are a] series of good questions that any good journalist would want an answer about why people were unmasked. All sorts of questions. 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 to President Obama’s spokesperson? [waits] Oh, not a single journalist has posed that question. Ok.

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 all visual learners and you guys will follow up with journalistic curiosity.

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?

Number Two: Why was Lt. General 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..I mean, this is extraordinary, and if it were political appointees in the Trump Administration, I can guarantee you I would have questions in my in-box right now. But apparently, Obama’s spokesperson does not.

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 this unmasking from President Obama? So much for going “by the book,” as Susan Rice said, three times. Thou doest 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 that they had no evidence of collusion while saying the opposite publicly?

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.

[End]

Wow. That was a pounding.

POLITICAL POSTERS (21 MAY) | Whistleblower Newswire

It is a sad fact of our society that, over the last half-century, the most lacking-in-curiosity-and-personal-integrity in our population have chosen to major in journalism. Even worse, those same individuals with no personal ethics or sense of curiosity have now become the professors at the nation’s journalism schools, and spend their days pounding any innate curiosity or ethical sense their young charges might have obtained from their parents out of them.

The result is today’s White House press corps. While it is easy to understand Ms. McEnany’s well-grounded frustrations, no one should expect this dynamic to change.

Real journalism is dead – with rare and notable exceptions – in our country, and has been for several decades now.

That is all.

    Oh man… I love this young lady… Bet the press cesspool hate her as shes got all the right strikes against her… Shes young, white, a solid Christian, pretty and worst of worse… shes very smart and takes no guff…

    Now… If only Trump would start listening to people recommendations from heavy hitters like Grendel, Kayliegh, Jordan, Nunes etc etc etc… Mr Trump should move the ‘qualification’ standard from swamp recommendations to a results qualification. Dump the ‘experts’ and go with the people with real world experience committed to helping the country, not themselves..

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of Democratic operative sleaze-bags. Fortunately (for them) Kayleigh is holding back. Sadly (for us) nothing is really going to change. It’s really great kabuki, but that’s all it is.

      Its great entertainment for sure… but being openly spanked like that isn’t something they are used to…

      Republicans generally fold like a cheap tshirt so having someone like Trump and Kayliegh punching them back like a Tyson and toddler match up will maybe, maybe give them pause before posing the stupidest and demoncrap hack questions. If not and they continue being the cesspool… its on them, not Kayliegh.

    Some pertinent parts copied from the other day’s comments.

    Where did the President get this Treasure? Bravo Zulu Mr. President!

    A quick research of her shows she is a 32 year old millennial, who actually worked as a political analyst for CNN, so I guess she got exposed to their TDS virus and developed strong antibodies and immunity from it. She also worked for Gov. Huckabee’s show on FOX and therefore probably has some association with former Trump Press Secretary: Sara Huckabee-Sanders who was also very good at dealing with the cretans who infest the ‘Whitehouse Press CORPse’.

    I love the way she throws their questions back to them to do the research and get back to her…

    President Trump should continue to use Twitter – especially if anal orifices like Mika B. want him banned/censored by Twitter’s CEO, but let her carry the daily briefs for a couple of reasons: Since she is a she, the radical non-male ‘journalists’ can’t say the bad orange man bullied the little (snowflake) girl, and the Jim Acosta’s of the world wouldn’t dare admit they can’t match wits with Trump’s ‘girl’. And she is fiercely bright and has a wonderful and positive stage presence backed up by facts and “gravitas”.

    The President should continue to do his impromptu press gatherings on his way to Marine One with the rotors whirring in the background on the Whitehouse lawn. He should continue to not give the ‘reporter(s)’ facetime, but give attribution, especially to the stupid questions.

    I recently heard that one reason the (snowflake) press corps and the broadcast MSM (D) wants Trump defeated is because they admit to becoming exhausted in trying to cover (sandbag) him and his presidency. They apparently can’t keep up with a 73 year old (who has the energy that would put most forty year olds to shame) who consistently plays Roadrunner vs. Wyle-E-Coyote with them; now they have Kayleigh McEnany to contend with.

    With the internet – despite platform censorship – Trump’s in your face push back style and now Kayleigh McEnany being front and center, the MSM (D) has lost its information monopoly and they are collectively losing their grip on not only the “news” they want to cover, but on reality and their ability to influence the masses, and as a consequence of that loss, their sanity.

    This will and has lead to a lot of unforced errors, many of which they had to at least correct and apologize for, or get outright sued bigly over and over in the worst cases. For example:

    Who at DNCNN though it would be a great idea to have Andrew and Fredo play with oversized Q-tips on a prime time “News” show? Come to think of it, why does the “Deer in the headlights” looking Fredo still have a job at DNCNN after he publicly tore his ‘management’ a new one about how much BS his show and others was/were? I guess it was a slow news day, meaning there was no real Anti-Trump message that came over from the DNC Fax, or from Schmuckie’s or Klink’s offices.

    Jonah Goldberg said on Sunday morning Fox News that Ms. Kayleigh was “indefensible and grotesque.” Such bullying ad hominem nastiness from this known neocon Jacobin jerk! He and all his kind loathe smart beautiful women and this is their dirty little secret. Their gurus are mostly all gay, and have abased women, going back to Plato. These neocons are convinced of their own brilliance and their condescension is silly because they are just misogynist thugs at heart hurling invective at those who threaten their lofty self images. Truly, these emperors wear no clothes!ll

      Elizabeth,

      Goldberg is just another ‘never Trumper’ hack faux ‘conservative’ who worked for ‘National Review until 2019. Cortana say he is a constant critic of President Trump…

      Just another phony ‘conservative’ writing for a phony ‘conservative’ publication and now just another empty talking head.

      That is fine by me; I used to get angry and then disappointed by the ‘conservatives’ like him and George Will, but I’m not any more, because they serve as a good barometer on Trump.

      If they ever began praising Trump like every other faux conservative’ politician like the Bushies and Ace McLame, then I will become worried.

      Schiffing on and screwing Trump makes you a loser in real conservative circles. Urinate on the president and he will schiff on you ‘bigly’; just ask Jeff Sessions and Ann Coulter.

      About Ann and people like her who “doth protest too much”, very disappointing. She is apparently pissed at Trump because Trump didn’t have a hundred foot high and two thousand mile long border wall built by February 2017. She was another of many people – ‘journalists’ – who I had trust, respect for, and faith in and I appreciated her and Sessions’ early and strong support for Trump when it was most needed, but she has become a loud shrill single issue voice that is apparently oblivious to every other positive Trump accomplishment and political reality.

      Question for Coulter: You are 58 years old, never married, never had children, why do you care so much about America’s future since you have no personal legacy or progeny to be concerned about? You also must have oodles of money from your books etc. and you were originally from Connecticut; so why didn’t, haven’t, you run for office – for Senator from CT for example? Trump didn’t need to run for president and deal with all this crap, but he had a sense of duty to America and its and his family’s future so he ran and won. What have you done for the country Ann Coulter? What have you really accomplished besides being a successful keyboard warrior and now an acerbic anti-Trump twittering loudmouth trying to hurt only the second president in the last hundred years who is really trying to fix America.

      Same goes for Sessions. Jeff, why did you take the AG job if you weren’t going to do the AG’s job? Now you want to try for your old senate seat? Just please go away and enjoy retirement like we all wish Walking Eagle and other hasbeens like Gaffe O. Joe would do.
