White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has reacted to her Twitter account being restricted for posting the explosive New York Post story.

On Wednesday, the Post published leaked emails showing Hunter Biden allegedly introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a Ukrainian energy executive.

McEnany said the restriction is not a temporary one, saying the social media platform has her “at gunpoint and said, unless you delete a news story reported by the New York Post, I cannot regain access to my account.”

McEnany said:

“[I]t’s not a temporary blockage. When I log on to my Twitter account, it says I’m permanently banned."

"They essentially have me at gunpoint and said, unless you delete a news story reported by the New York Post, I cannot regain access to my account.”

"This was a news story with emails, pictures of the emails, which even the Biden campaign does not dispute the authenticity of the emails," she added.

"You have the ayatollah of Iran tweet death to Israel, and this is permitted on Twitter, but not an email that is reported, by the way, by Fox News’ news division, by the New York Post, a credible outlet, you are not allowed to share that information.”

Both Facebook and Twitter reacted to the story by burying restricting it from appearing on their platforms.

The story shows Hunter Biden allegedly introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a Ukrainian energy executive.

The meeting would have taken place a year before the vice president pushed Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, who was then probing the executive’s company, Burisma Holdings.

During this period, Hunter Biden was a board member at Burisma, where he earned $50,000 a month, despite zero experience in the sector.

Facebook responded by limiting the reach of the story from appearing in its News Feed.

Facebook spokesman Andy Stone tweeted on Wednesday:

"While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners."

"In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform."

"This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation."

"We temporarily reduce distribution pending fact-checker review.”

But Stone did not provide any information to support the story as "misinformation."

Meanwhile, Facebook’s supposedly neutral fact-checkers were practically invited to challenge the story.
