In a statement Saturday, Sec. Pompeo does not dispute an NPR host's reporting about his actions in a post-interview lecture, but does challenge the host's character and journalistic integrity.
The secretary of state on Saturday attacked the correspondent who reported that he had cursed and berated her over questioning about Ukraine, but did not directly challenge those claims.threatened by Trump and his allies. Trump removed Yovanovitch as ambassador last year. Kelly said she did not agree to be off the record at any point, and had communicated in advance to Pompeo’s office that she intended to ask him about Iran and Ukraine. NPR released the full, unedited interview with Pompeo on Friday. “This is another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration. It is no wonder that the American people distrust many in the media when they so consistently demonstrate their agenda and their absence of integrity,” Pompeo said Saturday. After Pompeo abruptly ended the interview, an aide called Kelly back to Pompeo’s private living room where the correspondent said he “shouted” and “used the F word,” asking whether she thought Americans care about Ukraine, and predicting that"people will hear about this." According to Kelly, Pompeo asked for aides to bring him a map without country names marked and asked her to identify Ukraine. "I pointed to Ukraine he put the map away, he said, people will hear about this, and then he turned and said he had things to do, and I thanked him again for his time and left," Kelly recounted. Pompeo did not dispute Kelly's claim that she had correctly identified Ukraine. “It is worth noting that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine,” he said in his statement — but did not allege that Kelly had done so.

Pompeo berated, cursed at NPR reporter over Ukraine questions, she says'He was not happy to have been questioned about Ukraine, he asked, 'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?' He used the F word in that sentence, and many others,' NPR correspondent Mary Louise Kelly said. She should have said, “Ukraine is next to Nambia and right below Wakanda.” But she is too classy. Talking about you people I would use every F word ever invented!!!! Ole Mikey Boy
This POS got some nerve Claire M is right, Brian and Chuck. This Residence Takes Prisoners! I see Brian trying to make something sensational of nothing, and Chuck tends to under state the serious out points IloveFlorida001 If he was a decent Christian he would apologize profusely, admit his grotesque behavior was too damaging for the future of the country, and resign Instead he acted Republican.

NPR: Mike Pompeo berated reporter after questions on UkraineNPR's Mary Louise Parker pushed Secy. of State Mike Pompeo repeatedly on Ukraine, and he reportedly berated her using curse words and demanding she find Ukraine on an unmarked map (which she did). Hunter knocked up a stripper ...same relevance They're impatient. Fascist takeovers take time. Pompeo 2024
Please SHARE my link to help get my Dad back home to get medical treatment need for survival. Thank You GOD BLESS! glad he verbally beat the bum up! Pompeo has always been abusive....he's just let his veneer slip more than usual. Why is anyone surprised? Of course he does just like his daddy Trump would do
Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones... Pompeo and his Boss have No idea what Character or Integrity even are Utterly disgraceful. Pompeo should step down immediately. Distract and reflect are all Pompeo has. This is the projection administration
Radio reporter says Pompeo cursed at her after testy interviewU.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cursed at a National Public Radio reporter a... Damn these snowflakes are weak ❄❄❄❄❄❄ Diddums 🙄 Is Trump was already trying to get rid of her because she might be between Biden’s sham investigation, because she was just mentioned on the tape for few seconds before Trump said get rid of her, I want her gone or he’s Trump the easy to convince?
He needs to resign. He is bullying female reporters for doing their jobs and asking him questions. This isn’t Russia yet even though he would prefer it that way. He's the last person to ever question someone's integrity... 👀 Gaslighting Seems he would have done better to just be quiet, but that's the nature of the pompous.
Poor baby Nobody believes SecPompeo, over this terrific reporter, nobody. NPRKelly unhinged GOPComplicitTraitors I'd put my trust in NPRKelly over that lying slug, anyday. Don’t all abusers do that. Common abuser tactic It’s the “Trump Defense”
Pompeo Upbraids Journalist for Asking About Ukraine in InterviewSecretary of State Mike Pompeo erupted in an expletive-laden outburst after Mary Louise Kelly of “All Things Considered” asked if he owed an apology to Marie Yovanovitch, who was recalled last year as ambassador to Ukraine. Ha! Madd Madd.. He is very fragile. Weird how the words 'allegedly' or 'alleged' don't appear anywhere when there is zero evidence that this actually happened. Oh wait, 'journalist' never make things up, right?
Of course he does, because that’s the go to move. They’re all delusional 👀 She says he did not ask for OTR. Is anyone concerned that Pompeo might think Bangladesh is actually Ukraine?! Thoughts and prayers. America should challenge realDonaldTrump ALL of his administration’s integrity! Disgraceful, but we are use to the media acting in such a manner
Oh that’s nice he’s lecturing on integrity
Radio reporter says Pompeo cursed at her after testy interviewU.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cursed at a National Public Radio reporter a... Of course she doesn’t have the audio of any of this part though, does she? He abused her and should be prosecuted Oh No Not curse words😳
