White House Press Briefing
CNN journalists suffered a full-on meltdown during Thursday’s White House press briefing, screaming, waving their hands and offering repeated outbursts of emotion. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee dismissed CNN analyst Brian Karem and zinged journalist Jim Acosta, telling him: “I know it's hard for you to understand even short sentences.”
If politicians are the most self-centered group of people in America, the news media is a close second. That pompousness was on display during the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room as a segment was dedicated to political analyst April Ryan shouting at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the national anthem protests by NFL players. Also in that segment, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon suggested that it was “fake patriotism” to simply believe in standing for the Star-Spangled Banner.
Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing was fraught with tension over issues such as EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, North Korea, and trade, but the primary topic was the President’s less-than-factual dispute with the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles amid the NFL’s national anthem dispute. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan rudely bought the briefing to a halt and got into a shouting match with noted adversary/White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Showing how delusional CNN and MSNBC are with wall-to-wall coverage of Roseanne Barr’s deranged, racist tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett, it took until at least the ninth question in Wednesday’s White House Press Briefing for the now-fired ABC star to come up.
CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steven Portnoy snuck in a question at Thursday’s White House Press Briefing to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders concerning the President’s comments about illegal immigrant gang members (specifically MS-13) being “animals.” Sanders didn’t waste the opportunity to savagely torch the liberal media for rallying to the murderous gang’s defense against the President, even suggesting that the President didn’t go far enough.
Considering the liberal media’s history of being anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, Monday’s White House Press Briefing featured plenty of leading questions for Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah suggesting that Israel was responsible for the deadly protests by Palestinians along with the Israeli/Gaza border. This all came as the U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem.
In Wednesday’s must-see exchange during the White House Press Briefing, ABC senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega grilled Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about an early morning Trump tweeting wondering whether it was time to revoke media press credentials (presumably from the White House). Needless to say, Sanders was locked and loaded to respond.
Well, that’s one way to show your partisan colors. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan showed why she’s a chief White House press briefing carnival barker as she used Tuesday’s installment to wonder whether the various Trump scandals lay claim to credence to the notion that he’s an illegitimate President.
Behold the latest reminder that, for CNN, everything is about them. Wednesday’s White House press briefing saw another throw down between Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders telling off CNN’s supercilious White House correspondent Jim Acosta over claims the Trump administration has been suppressing reporters.
These people just make me detest Washington. On Tuesday, Variety published an absurdly gooey profile of the liberal media ahead of Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCA) and focused on three journalists, two of whom (CNN’s Jim Acosta and American Urban Radio Networks correspondent/CNN political analyst April Ryan) are perhaps the most arrogant journalists period.
When one thinks of liberal reporters who relish showing off at White House press briefings, three individuals who come to mind are CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and CNN political analysts Brian Karem and April Ryan. All three showed up at Monday’s installment to question White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about possible racist overtones in a Trump tweet that used the word “breeding” in regards to California’s sanctuary cities.
Friday’s White House briefing was raucous with James Comey’s liberal media-acclaimed book tour set to officially begin and, yes, CNN’s Jim Acosta played a prominent role tangling with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about whether criticizing Comey is “unbecoming of the presidency” and White House writ large. He also found help from CBS correspondent Paula Reid after he ran over the two question limit that Sanders imposed on the egotistical CNN personality.
