“You may think it’s over because if you actually pay attention to what’s happening in Washington with this administration, not having the briefings, trying to — pretending that this is over because they want to move on to other things. So not having those briefings, that’s all part of the plan for you to think that this is over, that we have moved beyond this,” Lemon said of the Trump administration.

Even then, CNN largely avoided McEnany’s new stint at the podium, completely skipping her latest briefing on Tuesday.
