On the evening of Tuesday, December 15, Don Lemon went viral for his frustrated dismissal of Kayleigh McEnany's incessant lies from the White House podium.

After McEnany refused to respond to questions about whether President Trump would acknowledge Joe Biden as the President-elect following his official win in the Electoral College, Lemon cut himself off mid-sentence to say:

"Girl, bye."

The clip quickly spread around Twitter, where users loved that Lemon was giving McEnany's lies the sass they deserved.



Lemon went on to criticize McEnany for her attacks on the media, mentioning that she used to be one of his colleagues at CNN.

"Talks about what the media is doing, criticizes the media, 'This is what you should be covering.'"
"I think we got this. You used to sit here on the set with us, I think we got it. When you sat here with us you thought we had it. You were happy to be here but now we don't know what we're doing? Girl, bye."



Many people online felt exactly like Don Lemon did in that moment.



During that same Press Conference on Tuesday the 15th, McEnany claimed the media had been distributing "Russian disinformation" instead of covering the stories that mattered in the lead-up to the 2020 elections.

CNN's Jim Acosta asked in response:

"Is it hypocritical to accuse others of spreading disinformation when you spread it every day?"



Like both of Donald Trump's former Press Secretaries, Kayleigh McEnany quickly developed a reputation for dishonesty in the service of the President.


One thing seems pretty certain: Don Lemon is looking forward to January.
