MSM Reporter Caught On Hot Mic Telling Press Sec McEnany How She Really Feels
The MSM has once again proven they have no sense of decorum. This time a reporter from the left-leaning Al Jazeera, Kimberly Halkett, asked Press Secretary McEnany about mail-in ballots and apparently Halkett did not like McEnany answer. McEnany called on someone else and then Halkett who was clearly triggered seems to have called the press secretary a "lying B*tch." Halkett, of course, denies it and claims that she instead said " "Okay, you don't want to engage."
Here's the original video.
Did a reporter call @PressSec a “Lying b*tch” on national TV during a White House Press Briefing?

Halkett also posted a video of the clip cut just to the moment in question.
Thanks for asking @charliespiering ... there's a lot of misreporting out there about that briefing. The answer to your question is, I DID NOT. What I said was, "OKAY, YOU DON'T WANT TO ENGAGE." https://t.co/xmu5YR7gXr

It's tough to say what was actually said in the video, but just the fact that no one even blinked an eye at the idea that a reporter may have called the press secretary a b*tch is the real problem here.
Just think back we had CNN's Jim Acosta constantly overtalking Sarah Sanders and the president with his questions. He was even banned awhile after he swatted away a mic from WH Aide. But the MSM didn't tell him to back off, they encouraged him.
"Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied," the cable news network said of the explanation. "This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support."
Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night, Acosta said, "I never thought in this country that I wouldn’t be able to go cover the president of the United States simply because I was trying to ask a question."
The MSM has desensitized the public into thinking this rude behavior is ok and they have clearly made it the norm. It's only a matter of time until the MSM is just outright swearing at our president and press secretary. Sadly, you know their networks would be giving them their full support, claiming it's totally normal to demean the president of the United States and the his/her administration.
