It has been absolutely hilarious to watch members of the media who were asleep at the wheel for the last eight years suddenly trying to act like serious journalists again.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell had to be physically removed from a State Department office on Monday as she yelled questions at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
The Blaze has the details:
Watch: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell thrown out of Tillerson meeting while asking about Russia
Cameras captured the moment that MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell was escorted out of a meeting between U.S. State Secretary Rex Tillerson and the Foreign Minister for Ukraine. Mitchell was yelling questions about Russia and Vladimir Putin Tuesday when she was hurried out.
As the two shook hands and cameras whirred away, Mitchell can be heard in a loud voice, asking, “Mr. Secretary, China has said there will be consequences for the deployment now of anti-missile defenses in South Korea, can you respond?”
Meanwhile, State Department handlers can be heard saying, “thank you” over and over to signal that no questions will be taken.
“Can you respond? Excuse me Mr. Secretary can you respond?” she continued…
As they push Mitchell out, she protests, “We haven’t had any time in here.”
Watch the video below:
People might take Andrea more seriously today if she had questioned the last administration this aggressively.
This kind of behavior now just reminds everyone of how easy Obama had it from the media.
