Trump held a summit at the White House this week to address censorship in social media. Lots of conservative and moderate influencers were invited to discuss the issue.
Afterwards, many of the same people gathered in the White House rose garden for a Trump press briefing and one member of the White House press pool decided to be a jerk.
He got called out by Sebastian Gorka, big time.
The Washington Examiner reports:
‘You’re a punk!’: Sebastian Gorka confronts White House journalists in Rose Garden (VIDEO)
Several videos caught former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka shouting and getting into the face of a journalist who taunted him Thursday inside the Rose Garden.
The confrontation took place after President Trump hosted a press conference announcing an executive order to tally non-citizens through the Commerce Department.
In a video leading up to the confrontation, Karem said the audience was a “group of people that are eager for demonic possession.” When Gorka shouted back at Karem, he said, “We can go outside and have a long conversation.”
“You’re a punk! You’re not a journalist! You’re a punk!” Gorka shouted at Brian Karem, a CNN political analyst and reporter for Playboy.

Guests who were invited to the social media summit cheered on Gorka; another person can be heard saying he should not be “attacking journalists like this.”

The establishment media is losing influence and they hate it.
That’s what this is all about.
