White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing got heated fast.
After her final answer, the press room erupted with shouts. Among the shouters was CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, whom McEnany subsequently wrecked with a response.
Here is the KO blow:

A personal rule of hers: don’t “call on activists.”
Collins kept the shouting going, arguing, “I’m not an activist, and you haven’t taken questions since October 1st. You just took about five, Kayleigh, that’s not doing your job. Your taxpayer-funded job.”
This is 2020, therefore, the fight must carry over to Twitter. Collins wasted no time, rushing to the app to say:
It’s understandable why someone who hasn’t done their job — taking questions from reporters — in weeks would confuse someone else doing theirs with activism.

The Press Briefing Room is as dangerous as the Octagon these days.
