White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany shot down a reporter's question on whether President Trump is glad the South lost the Civil War.
During a press briefing on Monday, Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent for Politico, introduced his questions by mentioning the national discussion around statues and flags that commemorate the Confederacy.
"I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is and the proper place of the Confederate flag," he said. "Does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War?"
"Well, your first question is absolutely absurd. He's proud of the United States of America," McEnany responded, quickly moving on to speaking about statues across the country that have been torn down or vandalized.

Man these fools are stuck on stupid.
Thisis how idiotic the left is.
They view themselves as front line soldiers, warriors. Delusions of grandeur.
I'm tellin' ya, President Trump needs to respond this crap by educating people of the demonicRAT roots of slavery, racism, The KKK, segregation, Jim Crow laws, etc.
The Union winning the Civil War resulted in a much more powerful feral government at the expense of the states. That’s sufficient reason to view it as a bad thing, no?
Trump’s a yankee from New York. Silly question.
They kept repeating different versions of the same stupid question and she kept her cool.
Racists are people who are obsessed with race and make everything about race, Sweetie.
I think it goes deeper than that. . .as in being given over to a reprobate mindset . . . willingly doing satan's bidding.
Democrats are still weeweed off the US won the Cold War
Seriously, they shouldn’t even be in that position
One DF question like THAT, and they’e G O N E
The Lame Street Media is morphing into the Clown New Network...oh wait, that already exists doesn’t it?
Ryan Lizza probably isn’t even embarrassed for asking such a stupid question.
Those reporters have comrades who post here.
Actually, that was not a question, it was a smear, and it is about time Trump’s people quit giving good faith answers to smart ass smears. Saying the question is absurd is not quite cutting enough.
I love Kayleigh, and shes feisty. But in situations like this I wish shed push harder. Just look at the reporter incredulous and say: Seriously? You came all the way down to the White House today, waited for hours, and used your only time for a question for something this stupid?
You said "feral" and that's no mistake. I've told my kids repeatedly that the states were separate governments united for a common defense, and that's what the federal government was for. Operative word "was".
You mean the First Democrat-Republican War? The Republicans won and that is always a good outcome.
