White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped CNN on Wednesday as “a sad parody of a news network” after it reported that President Donald Trump is making a “desperate coup attempt.”
CNN, during its coverage of protests by Trump supporters ahead of a speech from the president, ran a chyron reading, “Soon: Trump to speak to supporters in desperate coup attempt.”
McEnany tweeted a picture of the network’s coverage with the message: “This CNN chyron is unsurprisingly OUTRAGEOUS! Apparently abiding by a constitutional process that Democrats themselves have used is now considered a ‘COUP’ by the Fake News activists! CNN has become a sad parody of a news network.”
Trump said during his address on Wednesday that Vice President Mike Pence should “do the right thing,” and insisted that Pence can change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
"I hope Mike is going to do the right thing, I hope so. I hope so. Because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election," he said, according to CBS News. "... He has the absolute right to do it. We're supposed to protect our country, support our country, support our Constitution, and protect our Constitution."
