Fox News host cuts away from White House press secretary over her unproven claims of widespread voter fraud

Lame stream media Fox News cuts away… Wonder if Tucker will get the same memo?

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has officially found the line for Fox News — and crossed it.

On Monday, McEnany continued to peddle the Trump administration’s baseless claims that Democrats stole the election, alleging that the party is “welcoming fraud and … welcoming illegal voting.” Though Fox News let McEnany run on for some time before cutting in, anchor Neil Cavuto did eventually interrupt. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, I think we have to be very clear,” he said after breaking in. “She’s charging that the other side is welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this.”

Cavuto added that it is an “explosive charge” to say the other side is “effectively rigging and cheating,” and that “if she does bring proof of that we’ll of course bring you back.”

The press conference had been off to a rocky start to begin with, as McEnany clarifying that she was speaking in a “personal capacity,” evidently in an attempt to sidestep the Hatch Act, which bans political activity from taking place on federal properties like the White House. Later, when asked to provide any evidence whatsoever of her claims, she told a reporter “look, what we are asking for here is patience.”

In its search for viable challenges to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, President Trump’s campaign set up a voter fraud hotline after Election Day, encouraging people to call in with reports of suspicious incidents.

“Help stop voter suppression, irregularities and fraud,” the campaign said in social media posts promoting the hotline. “Tell us what you are seeing.”

Although the campaign has thus far failed to prove any voter fraud, the hotline has received no shortage of phone calls — all thanks to a viral campaign on TikTok and Twitter to clog the hotline with anti-Trump memes and absurd messages.

Campaign staffers in Virginia have been answering the calls, ABC News reported, fielding prank calls from Biden supporters who have played songs and movie clips, filed bogus reports, submitted the entire script for the 2007 film “Bee Movie,” or simply mocked Trump’s loss before hanging up.

Some people played rapper YG’s vulgar, anti-Trump rap , “FDT,” which rose up the charts as people celebrated Biden’s win. One woman said she met the devil at her Georgia polling place and he challenged her to a fiddle contest, but if she lost, Biden would win. Sportswriter Jeff Pearlman simply recounted the elaborate plot of the sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes.”

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Sunday. But some of the president’s allies, including son Eric Trump, responded to the reports of spam calls by blaming Democrats.

“The DNC is spamming our voter fraud hotline to bog down the thousands of complaints we are receiving!” he said in a tweet Friday. “Wonder what they have to hide.”
