White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has a great way of turning the tables on the media.
This week she wondered aloud about all the questions the media is not asking about Obamagate.
It was almost like she was giving out a homework assignment to the journalists in the room.
Kayleigh McEnany Gives Reporters a List of Questions They Should Be Asking About Obamagate
During the White House press briefing Friday afternoon, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped reporters for a lack of “journalistic curiosity” and failing to ask Obama administration officials about the unmasking of General Michael Flynn.
“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. Gen. Michael Flynn unmasked by Obama’s Chief of Staff? By the former Vice President Joe Biden, by Susan Rice, by the Treasury Secretary? This is extraordinary.
If it were political appointees in the Trump administration I can guarantee you I’d have questions in my inbox right now but apparently Obama’s spokesperson does not,” McEnany said. “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 if this had happened under the Trump administration.”
