Kayleigh McEnany claps back at Fox’s Chris Wallace, says press is committing ‘journalistic malpractice’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany hit back at Fox’s Chris Wallace after he criticized her approach to dealing with the press.

Wallace teamed up with Jonah Goldberg of The Dispatch on Sunday to accuse her of “indefensible” and “grotesque” behavior after she turned a White House correspondent’s question on its head in a recent briefing.

Wallace specifically said that “Let me just say, Sam Donaldson and me and the Reagan White House, we were pretty tough on the White House press secretaries and we never had our religious beliefs questioned or were lectured on what we should ask.”

McEnany fired back during a Tuesday appearance on “Fox & Friends” that the media is “not above being questioned.”

“Journalism is a great and noble profession but there’s been a dearth of journalists asking the real questions for President Obama,” she explained. “The criminal leak of Michael Flynn’s identity, who leaked that identity, the dossier used to launch a three-year investigation into this president to spy on his campaign why aren’t those questions being asked?”

“It’s journalistic malpractice not to ask those questions,” she declared.

Addressing Wallace’s accusation that she had attacked a journalist’s religious beliefs, she replied, “I never questioned the religious beliefs of the press.”

She continued:

Many of our journalists are great men and women of faith and differing faiths, whether it be the Jewish, Christian faith, the Muslim faith. What I was saying is, I was asked 11 questions as to why churches would be allowed to reopen. It was a bit peculiar to be asked these 11 questions in a row and for the onus and the focus solely to be on why churches are essential, I’ve never been asked why a liquor store was essential so I was merely pointing that out.

    1. I’m proud of the new WH press secretary. It appears Kayleigh McEnany is direct and to the point and doesn’t have the patience with these so call journalist as Sarah Sanders had. I like Sarah and her patience, but when she had enough the press knew it. Good job.

    2. Seems the new press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has adopted the Norman Schwarzkopf book on handling the press brief with an offense bend when needed. I love this lady. Don’t change a thing Kayleigh. 👍🏻😉

  1. McEnany is as tough and direct and honest as ever there was a WH Press Secretary! And the tainted, puppet, corrupted media deserve to have their hats handed to them. Their political bias is so disgusting and these little players are bought and paid for by Soros and his minions. Whatever Kayleigh must do yo give back all that they dish out is justified and appropriate. And Chris Wallace is as big a joke for a journalist as ever there was. With a voice straight from fingernails on a chalkboard. He’s repulsive.

    1. Don Lemmon was at a loss for words when sheriff told him the people had not broken any law enjoying their weekend at their private pool and bar/restaurant at Ozark Park. I’m tired of being bullied by weirdos who think they are the Supreme “authority”.

      1. I HOPE CHRIS WALLACE, NEIL CAVUTO, FREDDO CUOMO, AND THE REST OF LIBERAL HACKS WANNABE REPORTERS, THINK TWICE BEFORE TRYING INTIMIDATING YOU. BRING IT ON. A LOT OF CLASS THERE TOO. LOVE YOU KAYLEIGH😃😄😅

  2. YOUR ARE DOING A GREAT JOB LAYLEIGH. DON’T LET PEOPLE LIKE CHRIS WALLACE AND OTHERS INTIMATE YOU. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. WE PRAY FOR YOU AND OUR PRESIDENT. GOD BLESS YOU

  3. Proud of Kayleigh for firing at Chris Wallace and the press.

    Wallace is under the impression that old established journalists should have some seniority and that hard questions not be asked of them. A press conference is set for a back and forth exchange of ideas and not a shooting gallery against the President. Wallace is under the impression that journalists like him are tenured much like teachers. If that is his case, he places himself as an untouchable and philosopher king. The system does not work that way, you either produce or out to the south forty one goes.

    How to solve the problem of self-importance: Open the press meetings on a first-come first-serve basis, regarding seating. The priority system of first addressing old established journalists must be thrown out so as allow equal par with new journalists. Secondly, The press meetings are to get out information to the public and not as debate practices for biased journalists. Thirdly, Journalists are not at equal par with the President’s Office, they are simply talking heads. Either journalists address questions that are pertinent to the public’s interest or out they go!

    Lastly, if pampered journalist think the world owes them a living, then they better listen to the new rules of the game or get real jobs.

  4. Chris Wallace is a piece of crap to the full extent when his mouth opens up he takes a crap on him self and fox should expire him!!!!

  5. I’m your number one fan!! You just dish it back to those reporters!!! we need reporters like you.to be honest and tell there stories correctly and tell both sides of it good or bad that is what a reporter’s job is !!!!! There reporting should have no influence on weather they are Democrats or Republicans !!and if it does they shouldn’t have the job I’m sure there are many reporters out there if given a fair chance could report the news like it should be MAYBE we need to start looking for them!!!!!!

  6. Great job Kayleigh! These scum bag supposed “reporter’s “ need put in their place more. It would be great if they were all banned from press briefings and let some new unbiased real reporters in.

  7. this girl has got it going on i love her she is exactly what these clowns in the press core deserve they are not freinds of the truth and they should be ashamed of way that they are lying to the public about every thing trump!. I’m especially disappointed in our veteran journalists such as Chris Wallace and Sam Donaldson for being involved in this kind of blatant and false info!!!!!!

  8. Kayleigh is truly a breath of fresh air. Wallace is jealous because she can and would run rings around him.

  9. Good job Kaleigh! Go give it to that old ugly journalist who thinks he’s above everybody due to his years of experience & maybe because his dad was a respected journalist. Chris u are nothing like ur dad. You suck & you don’t deserve respect even from my 5
    Year old niece. Shut up & retire. We’re sick of your face on tv.

  10. Kayleigh is exactly right, in her reply to snarky Chris Wallace. The White House press corps, are only looking to catch her mis stating something . Why indeed, were there 11 questions on the same subject? Group think? That’s all they could think to ask ? Whatever happened to journalists, who were interested in the “who, what ,where, when and why”, of a story or subject? Opinion and personal bias, belong on the Op-Ed page. It’s not news! Brow beating a Press sect. isn’t news, either. She reads the latest WH news to these people, and doesn’t leave much to the imagination. She is very professional, well prepared and has facts at her fingertips. Anything she doesn’t know, she will follow up on, later. Journalists should ask questions germane to the subject being discussed.

  11. I want to know why it is okay for the “PRESS” to belittle everything our WONDERFUL President does and says, they can lie, cheat and make up crap and then when some bright young LADY says something VERY true some smart aleck makes a big deal out of it and says how inappropriate it was. THEY ARE THE ONE WHO ARE JERKS.

    CHRIS WALLACE LEADS THE PACKS IN BEING A TWO FACED JERK.

    GOOD JOB KAYLEIGH KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB YOU ARE DOING.

  12. GO KAYLEIGH, YOU ARE AWESOME. EXACTLY WHAT THESE LIBERAL HACKS NEED. PLUS SHE’S BEAUTIFUL AND SMART.

  13. FREDDO CUOMO, DON LEMMON, CHRIS WALLACE, NEIL CAVUTO, NYT, WAPO, MSNBC, ABC ,CBS AND OTHERS, TAKE NOTE. KAYLEIGH IS TEACHING YOU HOW TO NOT ONLY REPORT BUT ALSO HOW TO DO FACT CHECKING, THAT’S EMBARRASSING, SHE JUST STARTED AND WE CAN TELL HOW WELL PREPARED KAYLEIGH IS. YOU LIBERAL HACKS SHOULD BE LEARNING FROM HER. GOD BLESS YOU KAYLEIGH. DON’T LET THESE HACKS INTIMIDATE YOU.

  14. I turn Chris Wallace off every time he comes on, the guy is a phony news interviewer and doesn’t follow up on answers to his questions when he damn well knows that the person he is interviewing isn’t being truthful and honest.

  15. Kayleigh is right on target when she criticizes Wallace. He is not his father and deserves no respect.

  16. Chris and Neil need to go. Very disappointed w/ Fox News since the “siblings” took over. Only watch Tucker, whom I love , Hannity and Ingram!!!!!

  17. Kayleigh McEnany keep up the great job you are doing. Love listening to you because you don’t take any crap from the 1 sided journalists. You tell it like it is. Great job.❤❤🇺🇸

  18. I don’t subscribe to fake news magazines, don’t buy any fake newspapers, don’t read any of them, and I definitely don’t watch B.S. cnn, fox, local TV news channels or any left wing commie propaganda social media. The media is only getting their b.s. out to the dummies who believe it. No matter what fake news you believe, I have some ocean front properties in Kansas I would love to sell you.
