CNN host Brianna Keilar cut away from the presser noting that Kayleigh McEnany had lied.

In this clip, CNN host Brianna Keilar cuts away from a White House presser after Trump spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany claimed that the president had never downplayed the coronavirus, which is not true.

President Trump has regularly downplayed the coronavirus while endangering Americans in the process. Trump has said multiple times that the virus will simply “disappear” one day.

"All right, that was the press secretary at the White House lying," Keilar states. "She said the president never downplayed the coronavirus. This is what the president said at the time."

CNN then played clips of Trump playing down the pandemic.
