In an unprecedented move on Monday afternoon, Fox News interrupted a press conference the White House press secretary was holding – likely illegally given her government role – on behalf of the Trump campaign.
As McEnany baselessly accused Democrats of actively stealing the 2020 presidential election from President Trump, host Neil Cavuto interrupted the event to tell Fox viewers what was really going on.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we need to be very clear,” he said speaking for her. “She accuses the other side of ‘welcoming the fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back it up, I can’t go on showing you this.
“Maybe they have something else to back it up,” he added, “but it’s an explosive charge to do, that the other side is cheating and cheating effectively.” If McEnany provided any evidence, Cavuto told viewers her show would return to her press conference, but of course she never did.
“Not so fast,” he added.
Cavuto has been one of the few Fox News hosts to challenge President Trump’s lies, especially in recent months. In May, he warned viewers not to take hydroxychloroquine on the president’s recommendation, saying, “I can’t stress this enough. This. Will. Kill. You.”
Two months later, he interrupted a speech Trump was making to verify some false statements he was making about President Barack Obama’s record. And he also spoke to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos about what he described as his “reckless” plan to reopen schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In return, President Trump repeatedly tweeted about Cavuto’s “really bad grades” and suggested Fox News fire him.
