Monday, White House Press Secretary tweeted:
Joe Biden has some nerve to shout about “assaults on democracy.”
The greatest “assault on democracy” is what Democrats have done to President @realDonaldTrump for four years!
Joe Biden had accused Pres. Trump of an “unprecedented assault on democracy” in a speech Monday night hours after the electoral college vote put him over 270 electoral votes.
"The court sent a clear signal to President Trump," President-elect Joe Biden says of the Supreme Court's refusal to hear a case challenging the results of the presidential election, "that they would be no part of an unprecedented assault on our democracy." pic.twitter.com/OJ2vKqaasx

Tuesday, McEnany said during a press event that Trump “has taken all statutory requirements necessary to either ensure a smooth transition or a continuation of power.”
That led CNN’s Jim Acosta to tweet “Fact check: There won’t be a “continuation of power.” That’s disinformation @PressSec”

Acosta also made waves by yelling to McEnany as she was leaving “Isn’t it hypocritical for you to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?”
