Today a National Day of Prayer event was held at the White House, and President Trump addressed the gathered crowd late in the morning. Meanwhile, a CNN White House reporter said she was criticized this way:
A guest at the White House for the National Day of Prayer event tells me I am “pitiful and disgusting” for reporting that President Trump reimbursed his attorney for the $130,000 he paid a porn actress. I think you’re gonna have to take that up with Trump, sir.

Kaitlan is literally one of the best reporters covering the White House today. She is also my friend, and she is the furthest thing from pitiful and disgusting. https://t.co/BhSmoDuc0M
