At the start of Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing, Fox News reporter John Roberts started in with the false narrative that Trump won’t denounce white supremacism and pushed Kayleigh to make a definitive statement denouncing it:

But Kayleigh quickly reminded Roberts of several different times where Trump clearly denounced white supremacism. Roberts wasn’t happy with that and still pushed Kayleigh to denounce it, but she told him she just did by repeating Trump’s past statements denouncing it.
This is such a phony issue and one that the media is obsessed with. Just yesterday someone posted a video of over 17 times where Trump denounced this garbage that the media keeps trying to pin on him by saying he’s never done it:

AS you can see most of this is from 2016. But the media keeps pretending that Trump has never denounced any of it.
Here’s a CBS News report from 2019 entitled “Trump denounces white supremacy after weekend of violence”, where they say “President Trump made his strongest denunciation yet of white supremacy after the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.”
These people are hypocrites! Just like in 2016, they are trying to scandalize Trump as a racist to keep him from winning. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now because the American people see through these partisan hacks.
John Roberts went on Fox News and told people on Twitter, who are hammering him for asking this question, that he doesn’t care, claiming it needs to be asked:
On Fox News, @johnrobertsFox is visibly angry that @PressSec won’t offer a clear denunciation of white supremacy: “Stop deflecting. Stop blaming the media. I’m tired of it. ” pic.twitter.com/GcPcOsAHqJ

I’m very disappointed in Roberts.
UPDATE: Kayleigh just dropped a bomb on John Roberts from Twitter:
