“Good for those who covered what was a story all along,” McEnany concluded, referring to the investigation involving the president-elect’s son, “and not Russia disinformation.”
“Kayleigh, isn’t it hypocritical for you to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?,” Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent, replied.
