White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was asked if she would like to take back previous comments she had made on Fox News regarding the Coronavirus.

She explained that she was asked a question about President Trump’s travel restrictions. She said she was discussing the travel restrictions.

Then she hit the media.

“Does Vox want to take back that they proclaimed that the Coronavirus would not be a deadly pandemic,” she asked. “Does the Washington Post want to take back that they told Americans to get a grip, the flu is bigger than the Coronavirus? Does the Washington Post likewise want to take back that our brains are causing us to exaggerate the threat of the Coronavirus? Does the New York Times want to take back that fear of the virus may be spreading faster than the virus itself? Does NPR want to take back that the flu was a much bigger threat than the Coronavirus? And finally, once again The Washington Post, would they like to take back that the government should not respond aggressively to the Coronavirus?”
