“There are some people that are so mendacious, I just wouldn’t put them on air,” Tapper responded. “Kayleigh McEnany, I never booked her. Jason Miller from the Trump campaign, I would never book him. These are just people who tell lies the way that most people breathe. There was no value in that.”

On the other hand, Tapper said he has interviewed former White House counsel Kellyanne Conway because she’s “more of a filibusterer and a subject changer,” different from McEnany, who “tells lies all the time” and “can’t acknowledge reality,” he explained.

“I am just not going to put somebody like that on air,” Tapper emphasized.

McEnany snapped back on Twitter later, calling the Stelter and Tapper interview a “therapy session for a broken network.”
