WH Backs Trump’s Racist Usage Of “Kung Flu” [VIDEO]

CBS News reports:

CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang confronted White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany about Trump’s usage of the term “kung flu” to describe Covid-19. Jiang reiterated that it’s “extremely offense” to Asian Americans, but McEnany deflected and blamed media outlets for calling coronavirus the “Chinese virus” in January and February.

On March 17, Jiang revealed that a White House official called the coronavirus “kung flu” right to her face, but would not name who. Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway then demanded that Jiang share the name with the press pool in skepticism.

“Last July, president Trump declared himself the least recent person there is anywhere in the world,” Jiang asked Monday. “Why does he use racist phrases like ‘Kung flu?’” “The president doesn’t,” McEnany shot back.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told “Fox & Friends” on Monday that President Trump “was not angry at all” that there were a number of empty seats at his first campaign rally in months. She added that “the president was quite energized” at Saturday’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla. “He was in a great mood,” McEnany continued. “It was a great night and there was a lot to celebrate.”
