Fox’s Cavuto Cuts Off Trump Campaign Presser With Scathing Smackdown: ‘I Can’t in Good Countenance Continue Showing This’
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto abruptly cut away from a Trump campaign press conference led by Kayleigh McEnany Monday afternoon.
The White House Press Secretary was speaking in her dual role as campaign spokesperson and was addressing President Donald Trump’s continued efforts to refuse conceding the election, after news outlets projected he has lost.
“There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room, that party my friends is the Democrat party,” McEnany proclaimed. “You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election. You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our effort at sunlight at transparency because you have nothing to hide. You take these positions because you are a welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting.”
Shortly after her baseless allegation that the Democratic party was “welcoming fraud” and “welcoming illegal voting,” Cavuto cut in abruptly by saying “whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear.”
“She’s charging the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing this,” he continued.
“I want to make sure that maybe they do have something back that up,” Cavuto added. “That is an explosive charge to make at the other side is effectively rigging and cheating. If she does bring proof of that we will take you back.”
President Trump has repeatedly — and baselessly — claimed that Democrats are trying to steal the election through voter fraud.
