A debate is raging on social media among Trump supporters who swear a White House reporter called White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany a "lying b---h."
Your auntie heard the press conference live on Tuesday, and I heard the tense exchange between McEnany and Al Jazeera English correspondent Kimberly Halkett.
Hhalkett asked McEnany about President Trump's plans to stop Russian interfere in the elections in November.
McEnany read a list of the Trump administration's plans - some already in effect - to fight back against foreign interference. Halkett interrupted McEnany several times as she read the list.
McEnany ended by citing a Wall Street Journal op-ed that questioned "mass mail-out voting."
Apparently not satisfied with McEnany's answers, Halkett pressed her with more questions. At that point McEnany decided to move on to another reporter.
"You've gotten two questions which is more than some of your colleagues," McEnany told Halkett.
When listening live, it sounded like Halkett said, "Okay, you don't want to engage."
But after the debate erupted on Twitter.com, a second listen to the audio sounds like she says, "you're a lying b---h."
You decide. Listen to the audio with unbiased ears. What do you hear?
This god awful reporter literally had the audacity to call our wonderful and amazing, @PressSec, “...a lying bitch” on national television! ?
