The media has made no secret of the fact that they are, collectively, rooting for one side of the presidential election game and it is not that of President Donald Trump.
One the same day that former Vice President Joe Biden held a press conference in which no questions were asked the White House held two.
The first was held by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany who laid the smack down on the White House press pool and on CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon.
After three months of left wing lunatics rioting, looting and attacking supporters of the president the media finally got around to asking a question about it.
Well, sort of. They actually asked about a supporter of the president who was seen on video firing a paintball gun. Yes, a paintball gun.
Mere days after an avowed Antifa member murdered a Trump supporter in Portland, Oregon this reporter was concerned about paintballs, and the press secretary let him have it.
“It’s incredible that for 90 days I’ve stood at this podium talking about officers [who’ve had] lasers flashed in their eyes in an attempt to blind them, commercial-grade fireworks thrown at them, a church right out here burning down, the people that were harassed and yelled at,” she said.
“Sen. Rand Paul, Dan Bongino — right out here, and you’re going to ask me about a paintball video when, in fact, for 90 days we’ve seen horrific violence by Antifa, a radical, anarchist organization,” she said. “I mean, you’re going ask about a paintball video I’ve yet to see and neither has the president.”
“I’m going to ask you about it, but you maintain that the people who went into the city to conduct that activity …,” the reporter pressed.
“Look, there’s been 90 days of violence from left-wing anarchists; it’s incredible that today is the one time you’re interested in violence when it’s paintballs — and we don’t even know who set off these paintballs — but you fail to ask for 90 days about violence from an anarchist organization because it happens to be on the left,” she said.
And before she left the stage, she directed her ire to the hodgepodge of liberal activists at CNN that call themselves journalists.
“It is so interesting to me to see Democrats um, who once disparaged, who ignored the violence I should say, all of a sudden caring about it.
“But let’s not forget, um, what they said previously. Speaker Nancy Pelosi downplaying the violence rocking U.S. cities, ignorantly saying, ‘people will do what they do.’
“Uh, Jerry Nadler when asked about Antifa, he said that, that was a ‘myth that’s being spread around Washington, D.C.’ It’s not a myth. In fact an Antifa individual took the life of an innocent Trump supporter in Portland,” she said.
“Um, you had Rep. Ayan, Aya, Ayanna Pressley saying that she wanted ‘unrest in the streets.’ Chris Cuomo saying ‘show me where it says protesters are supposed to be peaceful.’ I’ll give you an idea Chris, it’s the Constitution. Don Lemon saying quote ‘the rioting has to stop, Chris, as you know and I know it’s showing up in the polls, it’s showing up in the focus groups, it’s the only thing right now that’s sticking,” the secretary said.
“So now all of a sudden ninety days later, I from this podium have talked about law and order, the President has talked about law and order repeatedly but because the polling has shifted, um, now it’s time for the Democrats to deny what they said previously and all of a sudden focus on law and order. Um, I’ll leave you with this: That’s like the arsonist blaming the firefighter,” she said.
