Democrats struggled to find any way to criticize President Trump’s Independence Day address, so they quickly moved on to attack Trump’s comments about NASCAR’s handling of the Bubba Wallace noose hoax and the banning of the Confederate flag.
“Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!” Trump tweeted on Monday.
The media immediately latched on to the tweet as an admission on Trump’s part that he supports the Confederate flag, bombarding White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany with questions about Trump’s position on the flag.
She lost patience after several questions, slamming the press coverage of Trump’s tweet instead of the real issues America faces. Watch below:
Press Sec @kayleighmcenany: “I was asked probably 12 questions on the Confederate flag… I didn’t receive one question on the deaths in this country this weekend. I didn’t receive one question about NYC shootings doubling for the 3rd…” pic.twitter.com/v11oloGr0t
