WATCH: Kayleigh Blasts Media, Top Obama-era Officials While Answering PBS Reporter

After being challenged on her previous comments on President Trump from 2015 by PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnancy blasted CNN and Obama-era officials including Jim Clapper and Loretta Lyngh.

Yamiche Alcindor:

In 2015, shortly after the president said some Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminal, you said that language was ‘racist and hateful.’ Do you still believe that today?”

Kayleigh McEnany:

I was naively believing some of the headlines that I saw on CNN….

In fact, CNN hired me, I was on many eight-on-one panels where I proudly supported this president who I believe is one of the best presidents, if not the best president this country will ever have.

I would encourage the individual who did that analysis of my past, rather than focusing on me, he really should be focused on some of the very guests CNN chose to have on their network. He should be focused on Jim Clapper, who said ten days before he privately told investigators there was no evidence of collusion, that ‘Watergate pales in comparison to the Russia probe.’ I would encourage them to look at Samantha Powers, who privately is saying, ‘I’m not in possession of any evidence of collusion.’ Ambassador writes, ‘I don’t recall intelligence or evidence of any collision.’ Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch: ‘I don’t recall that being briefed to me.’”

…If the American people are watching right now, they are probably very confused as to some of the quotes I read because those individuals were saying much different things publicly than they were saying privately.
