Things are changing drastically in the media landscape these days, especially as the nation itself continues to radicalize and rage.
The 2020 election proved to be a focal point of this angst and energy, and as President Trump continues to push for legal fights and recounts, there is a very real chance that this brouhaha isn’t over.
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a press conference to discuss the President’s ongoing ballot battle, but her framing of the situation caused Fox News to cut away.
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto abruptly cut away from a Trump campaign press conference led by Kayleigh McEnany Monday afternoon.
The White House Press Secretary was speaking in her dual role as campaign spokesperson and was addressing President Donald Trump’s continued efforts to refuse conceding the election, after news outlets projected he has lost.
“There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room, that party my friends is the Democrat party,” McEnany proclaimed. “You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election. You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our effort at sunlight at transparency because you have nothing to hide. You take these positions because you are a welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting.”
That was too much for the longtime Fox host.
Shortly after her baseless allegation that the Democratic party was “welcoming fraud” and “welcoming illegal voting,” Cavuto cut in abruptly by saying “whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear.”
“She’s charging the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing this,” he continued.
President Trump has repeatedly insisted on Twitter that he actually won the election, and that his legal efforts could see the results of the contest reversed.
