The video clip of an exchange between White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Al Jazeera English White House Correspondent Kimberly Halkett quickly went viral after allegations that the reporter grumbled “lying bitch” under her breath after being cutoff.
McEnany, who had answered two questions from Halkett was simply moving on when the comment was made behind her mask.
You can watch the video below:

Objective reporting for the educated American.
Halkett has since claimed that she made no such comment, but was rather saying “okay, you don’t want to engage.” You can see her response on Twitter below.
Thanks for asking @charliespiering … there's a lot of misreporting out there about that briefing. The answer to your question is, I DID NOT. What I said was, "OKAY, YOU DON'T WANT TO ENGAGE." https://t.co/xmu5YR7gXr

As you can imagine, like with any issue these days in America, people are extremely divided on what they heard. I personally cannot tell, but what did you hear? Let us know in the comments.
