After “Fox News Sunday’s” Chris Wallace criticized Kayleigh McEnany’s confrontational style on Sunday, the White House Press Secretary shot back at the host on Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends.”

Kayleigh McEnany: The press is ‘not above being questioned’

Wallace noted that McEnany had lectured White House reporters about what questions they should have been asking and were not. The Fox News host also implied that during the time he and Sam Donaldson were covering the White House, McEnany’s behavior wouldn’t have been tolerated.

McEnany told “Fox & Friends” that the press was “not above being questioned.”

Host Brian Kilmeade mentioned McEnany’s comments on Friday, saying that Wallace in particular had was angry about what she said, suggesting that she had also questioned the religious beliefs of journalists.

“No I never questioned the religious beliefs of the press,” McEnany replied. “Many of our journalists are great men and women of faith and differing faiths, whether it be the Jewish, Christian faith, the Muslim faith. What I was saying is, I was asked 11 questions as to why churches would be allowed to reopen. It was a bit peculiar to be asked these 11 questions in a row and for the onus and the focus solely to be on why churches are essential, I’ve never been asked why a liquor store was essential so I was merely pointing that out.”

McEnany also said she fields hundreds of questions every day.

McEnany wanted to know why reporters aren’t asking real questions: ‘It’s journalistic malpractice not to ask those questions’

“Journalists are not above being questioned themselves,” she said. “Journalism is a great and noble profession but there’s been a dearth of journalists asking the real questions for President Obama, the criminal leak of Michael Flynn’s identity, who leaked that identity, the dossier used to launch a three year investigation into this president to spy on his campaign why aren’t those questions being asked?”

“It’s journalistic malpractice not to ask those questions,” McEnany finished.
