Fox News reported that during a press conference this week White House criticized two CNN hosts for misrepresenting the violent riots and encouraging the civil unrest to continue.
“It’s so interesting to me to see Democrats who once disbarred, or ignored the violence I should say, all of a sudden caring about it. But let’s not forget what they said previously,” said the press secretary.
“Chris Cuomo saying, ‘Show me where it says that protesters are supposed to be peaceful.’ I’ll give you an idea, Chris. It’s in the Constitution,” said the press secretary, answering his question.
“Don Lemon saying quote, ‘The rioting has to stop, Chris, as you know and I know. It’s showing up in the polls. It’s showing up in the focus groups. It’s the only thing right now that’s sticking.’” said McEnany to the group of journalists.
She added: “So now all of a sudden, 90 days, I, from this podium, have talked about law and order, the president has talked about law and order repeatedly, but because the polling has shifted, now it’s time for the Democrats to deny what they said previously and all of a sudden focus on law and order.”
McEnany closed with: “That’s like the arsonist blaming the firefighter,” and walked off the stage.
