Kayleigh McEnany Blasts Media Over Their Questions About The Confederate Flag

On Monday, things got tense between White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and the White House press corps after a number of reporters asked about President Donald Trump’s recent comments about NASCAR and the Confederate flag.

Trump criticized NASCAR’s call to ban the Confederate flag in a tweet on Monday. And, he also blasted Bubba Wallace after the FBI concluded that the sport’s only black driver was not the victim of a hate crime.

“I’ve explained to you. This is I guess the fourth attempt, but we’ll try it again,” McEnany said to a reporter. “In aggregate, what [Trump] was pointing out is this rush to judgement to immediately say that there is a hate crime as happened in this case, as happened with Jussie Smollett, as happened with the Covington Catholic boys.”

“We should not have this rush to judgement, knee-jerk reaction before the facts come out,” McEnany continued. “The FBI did their job and determined there was no hate crime.”

‘I’m not going to answer a question a sixth time’

When the reporter wouldn’t stop asking questions about Trump’s flag tweet, McEnany pointed to another reporter after saying, “I’m not going to answer a question a sixth time.”

Last month, NASCAR announced that they would prohibit Confederate flags from their events within the context of protests taking place across the country against racism. A rope allegedly shaped like a noose was found in Wallace’s garage shortly after NASCAR’s announcement.

FBI Concluded No hate Crime Was Committed

An FBI investigation concluded that Wallace was not the victim of a hate crime, and that the controversial rope had actually been present in the garage since October 2019.

President Trump tweeted Monday, “Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”
