Don Lemon to ex-CNN colleague McEnany: ‘Girl, bye’

CNN’s Don Lemon had some choice words Tuesday night for Trump press secretary and former network colleague Kayleigh McEnany, telling her “girl, bye” amid the White House’s refusal to concede following last month’s election.

Lemon discussed McEnany’s handling of questions concerning President-elect Joe Biden’s recent election by the Electoral College at a press conference earlier in the day, blasting her for criticizing the media.

“Did you know she also worked for — girl, bye,” Lemon said, referring to her former position as a commentator for CNN.

“So much disinformation comes from the podium. It’s just every day. It’s like [she] comes out, reads propaganda, talks about what the media is doing, criticizes the media, ‘this is what you should be covering’,” Lemon said.

“I think we got it. When you sat here with us, you thought we had it. You were happy to be here. But now we don’t know what we’re doing?” he continued. “Girl, bye.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta also hit back Tuesday at McEnany for her criticism of the media towards the end of the press conference.

“Isn’t it hypocritical of you to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?” Acosta asked.
