Kayleigh to CNN's Kaitlan Collins: “I don't call on activists.”

— Scott Whitlock (@ScottJW)

CNN Correspondent and Alabama native found herself a target in the aftermath of Friday’s briefing from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, her first since early October.

“Thank you, everyone, for the very good and substantive questions,” McEnany said, trying to end the briefing. When the group of reporters tried to ask more questions, she briefly returned to the mic.

“I don’t call on activists,” McEnany said while looking at Collins before leaving the podium. Collins responded, “I’m not an activist,” noting McEnany hadn’t taken any questions from reporters since Oct. 1. “You just took about five, Kayleigh. That’s not doing your job.”

Following the briefing, Collins tweeted “Appearing in her professional capacity, @PressSec takes only a handful of questions in her first briefing since Oct. 1. Asked why [she] can’t call on all reporters — given it’s been so long and there are not many of us due to social distancing — she called me ‘an activist.’”

Collins followed up: “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.”

Based in Washington, D.C., Collins joined CNN in 2017, covering the Trump White House and quickly rising to the top of her field. Collins is from Prattville and is a graduate of the University of Alabama.
