White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was joined by Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel for a briefing Monday afternoon where they were discussing Donald Trump’s plans to dispute the outcome of the 2020 election.
Trump has been claiming that the election results came from a flood of illegal ballots that gave Joe Biden the presidency. He has yet to offer any sort of evidence to back his accusations.
McEnany alleged that Democrats were preventing Trump’s people from being in the count room, a fact that Trump’s own attorneys were forced to acknowledge in court wasn’t true.
“I’m asking you as a member of the bar of this court: are people representing the Donald J Trump for president, representing the plaintiffs, in that room?” asked Judge Paul Diamond.
“Yes,” Trump’s lawyer acknowledged.
“I’m sorry, then what’s your problem?” Judge Diamond asked.
The claim prompted Fox News host Neil Cavuto to cut off McEnany’s press statement to fact-check her in real time.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear: she’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” he said.
