McEnany Battles Press Corps: ‘Interesting To Be in a Room’ Where You ‘Desperately’ Want Houses of Worship To Stay Closed

‘It is safe to reopen your church as if in accordance with the guidelines laid out’

EXCERPT:

MCENANY: "I just gave you an answer, the President would like churches to reopen and do it in accordance with the guidelines."

REPORTER: "What specific provision of federal law allows the President to override?"

MCENANY: "The President will strongly encourage every governor to allow their churches to reopen, and boy, it's interesting to be in a room that desperately wants to seem to see these churches and houses of worship stay closed."
