Jake Tapper revealed Sunday that he by no means interviews White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on CNN as a result of she “lies the way that most people breathe” — continually.
McEnany is amongst a number of mendacity White House officers Tapper stated he avoids as a result of they supply “no value” to an examination of the information.
Tapper attacked McEnany’s veracity as a visitor on Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” for a glance again on President Donald Trump’s conflict with the media all through his time period. Stelter requested Tapper how he decides who to interview, and the way he handles false data from the White House.
“There are some people that are so mendacious, I just wouldn’t put them on air,” Tapper responded. “Kayleigh McEnany, I never booked her. Jason Miller from the Trump campaign, I would never book him. These are just people who tell lies the way that most people breathe. There was no value in that.”
On the opposite hand, Tapper stated he has interviewed former White House counsel Kellyanne Conway as a result of she’s “more of a filibusterer and a subject changer,” totally different from McEnany, who “tells lies all the time” and “can’t acknowledge reality,” he defined.
“I am just not going to put somebody like that on air,” Tapper emphasised.
McEnany snapped again on Twitter later, calling the Stelter and Tapper interview a “therapy session for a broken network.”
She added: “I do not lie,” underscoring Tapper’s level.
