White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed during a briefing Friday that President Donald Trumpwas never given an orderly transition of power.”

A video going viral on Twitter proves otherwise.

The NowThis clip begins with McEnany making her latest baseless claim.

It then cuts to footage of Trump, during his inauguration in January 2017, actually thanking former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama “for their gracious aid throughout this transition.”

“They have been magnificent,” Trump declares.

The video later contrasts how the Obama administration sought to facilitate the transfer of power to Trump with Trump’s ongoing and increasingly unhinged attempts at stealing the election from President-elect Joe Biden.
