CNN's Jim Acosta Shouts at McEnany About 'Disinformation': 'Hypocritical'


White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany took a few minutes during a press conference to slam journalists for not covering stories about President-elect Joe Biden‘s son Hunter Biden.

On Tuesday, McEnany discussed “interesting pre-election and post-election coverage” of the “Hunter Biden scandal” which she claimed was “not covered at all by many outlets in the lead up to the election.”

She proceeded to read headlines from several mainstream news outlets that described stories about Hunter Biden’s business dealings as Russian disinformation from before the election.

She also read several news stories from earlier this month after Hunter Biden revealed he was under federal investigation related to his taxes.

“Really interesting turn of events, and good for those who covered what was a story all along and not Russian disinformation,” she said in a closing jab.

As she left the briefing room, CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted a question, “Isn’t it hypocritical to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?”

Watch the video below:

Acosta later took to Twitter and shared a video of McEnany claiming Trump has “taken all statutory requirements necessary to either ensure a smooth transition or a continuation of power.”

He wrote, “Fact check: There won’t be a ‘continuation of power.’ That’s disinformation.”
