White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday slammed reporters for failing to ask a single question concerning the deadly shootings that occurred over the holiday weekend.

After fielding roughly 20 minutes of questions from the media that focused primarily on President Trump's tweet condemning NASCAR's banning of the Confederate flag and driver Bubba Wallace's controversial noose incident, McEnany ripped into reporters for ignoring the horrific shootings that left several dead, including an 8-year-old girl.

"Finally, I'd end with this: I was asked probably 12 questions about the Confederate flag. This president's focused on action. I'm a little dismayed that I didn't receive one question on the deaths that we got in this country this weekend. I didn't receive one question about New York City shootings doubling for the third straight week and over the last seven days, shootings skyrocket by 142%. Not one question," McEnany said.

"I didn't receive one question about five children who were killed. And I'll leave you with this remark by a dad; it broke my heart. A dad of an eight-year-old lost in Atlanta this weekend: "They say Black Lives Matter? You killed a child; she didn't do nothing to nobody," was his quote. We need to be focused on securing our streets; making sure no lives were lost, because all black lives matter. That of David Dorn and that of this eight-year-old girl."
