Like any good dictator, Trump hates the Free Press.
Here is the latest skirmish in his attempts to stifle free speech.
Playboy reporter, CNN analyst Brian Karem says White House
suspended his credential over clash with Gorka
“You're a punk, you're not a journalist, you're a punk,” Gorka yelled at Karem, who responded by urging Gorka to “get a job.”
Uh, do you even know this story? Karem WAS being a punk. First he called guests in the Rose Garden "A group of people eager for demonic possesion..."
To which Mr Gorka replied, "You're a journalist right?"
Karem then responded, "C'mon over here and talk to me brother, or we can go outside and have a long conversation" (the implication was obvious in the video)
Gorka then approached him and said that Karem was threatening him in the Rose Garden and said he is not a journalist, but a punk. (this is the clip you have probably seen, funny how the corporate media generally left out the events leading up to this)
There was ZERO effort to "stifle free speech." Just a "journalist" behaving poorly. It is a privilege to be a WH reporter, not a right. Acosta was denied a press pass as well, due to his being an obnoxious hack who loved to make HIMSELF the story. Note to journalists, YOU ARE NOT THE STORY.
