The White Home press briefing instantly ended after a conservative propaganda outlet requested if Trump would pardon Obama for unlawful wiretapping.
White Home Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany mentioned, “I’ve not spoken to the president about that, however who I did communicate to in regards to the unmasking of Michael Flynn have been the individuals on this room. I haven’t spoken to him about that particular level. Have spoken to him in regards to the matter typically, and I laid out a sequence of questions that any good journalist would need solutions to about why individuals have been unmasked.”
Holy shit. McEnany takes a Q from ultra-sycophantic OAN about whether or not Trump has contemplating pardoning Obama “for illegally wiretapping” him. (That did not occur.) McEnany makes use of it as a chance to assault the press for not overlaying Obamagate & then abruptly ends the briefing. pic.twitter.com/Ce4UDXgakk

McEnany went on to assault the media, and even broke out slides to push a conspiracy idea.
Obama by no means wiretapped Trump or Trump Tower. It didn’t occur. Barack Obama didn’t commit any crimes, so there isn’t a cause for him to want a pardon. The Obamagate scandal has been debunked. Michael Flynn was never masked, so he wasn’t unmasked.
The White Home has elevated conservative propaganda outfits like One America Information to have the ability to ask questions on the press briefings as a result of that’s the solely means that they are going to be capable to inject questions loaded with conspiracies and misinformation into the briefings and mislead the American individuals.
The sample for these briefings is that McEnany will sooner or later do her little track and dance after which finish the briefing.
