“Outnumbered” co-host and former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany expressed her frustration with Karine Jean-Pierre for failing to provide any new information during Wednesday’s briefing regarding the cocaine that was discovered in the West Wing. McEnany argued that Jean-Pierre’s lack of updates is “totally inexcusable.”


KAYLEIGH MCENANY: She brought nothing. I would not have walked to that podium without saying, ‘Secret Service, you have to give me something here.’ I mean, you read the headline from Politico. Daniel Lippman, the reporter there, got more than the press secretary of the White House. She said she did have some information to add, And it was this: ‘The president and the first lady and their family were not here this weekend.’ That’s
not new information.
Okay. We’ve known that. … She brought no answers. Totally inexcusable. … The scariest part is the president of the United States walks through this entrance. If the motorcade is on WestExec, which it often is. I’ve seen
President Trump
walk through there, and the thought that President Biden could have been within feet of a powdery substance that was unknown. It’s incomprehensible and it is inexcusable.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced a barrage of questions from reporters about the cocaine allegedly found in the West Wing over the weekend.

“Can you provide any more details on whether the Secret Service found the cocaine in the West Wing and how it was discovered?” asked Associated Press reporter Josh Boak, initiating the line of inquiries.

“As you know, this falls under the purview of the Secret Service,” responded Jean-Pierre. “They are currently investigating what occurred over the weekend. Therefore, I would have to direct you to the Secret Service for any information regarding this matter.”

“As you know, the President, the First Lady, and their family were not present this weekend, as you all reported, and they departed on Friday, returning just yesterday,” she continued. “The location where this was discovered is a heavily-trafficked area frequently used by visitors to the White House’s West Wing. Unfortunately, I don’t have any further information to share at this time.”
