Friday during the White House press briefing, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany played a video compilation showing some scenes of destruction, rioting, and violent crime that has occurred from protesters, activists, and anarchists in Portland, Oregon.
According to chief creative officer Benny Johnson at Turning Point USA, “Most, if not all, cable networks cut away”, from the press briefing, including Fox News, when McEnany played the video clip.
