White House Press Briefing
Fresh off his newfound stardom after arguing with White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday afternoon, The Sentinel and Playboy writer Brian Karem told MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews that he (and the press corps) are “tired of being paddled” as liberal pushers of fake news.
CNN received their wish on Tuesday that the White House press briefing would allow cameras, but it wasn’t enough as senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta and media reporter Dylan Byers melted like liberal snowflakes over Breitbart receiving a question and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slamming the media’s thrist for destroying President Trump.
An anti-Trump journalist on Tuesday suffered a total meltdown, screaming at Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Brian J. Karem, a reporter for a local Maryland paper The Sentinel, lost it after Sanders fought back against a “barrage of fake news.” Sanders lectured the assembled journalists: “If we make the slightest mistake, the slightest word is off, it is just an absolute tirade from a lot of people in this room. But news outlets get to go on, day after day, and cite unnamed sources.”
At Monday’s audio-only and photos-only White House press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to make a fool out of himself, melting down and screaming at press secretary Sean Spicer over the current set-up for briefings. Acosta first interrupted after a female reporter didn’t get her question answered. When he yelled at Spicer to answer her question, Spicer lobbed some A+ shade at Acosta: “There's no camera on, Jim.”
On Wednesday morning, White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave an interview to rumored replacement and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham and lambasted the opposition party that he faces at the Briefing Room podium as wannabe “YouTube stars” thirsting for “getting their clip on air” tussling with Spicer.
On Monday afternoon, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta became absolutely unglued, expressing deep anger and horror at the Trump White House following the White House daily briefing that was conducted without audio or video to show viewers on orders from the White House.
During the Friday White House daily press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta berated EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on behalf of planet Earth: “Why, then, is the arctic shelf melting? Why are the sea levels rising? Why are the hottest temperatures in the last decade essentially the hottest temperatures that we've seen on record?"
After remaining silent on the alleged March rape of a teenage girl and illegal immigrant in a D.C. suburb, journalists from ABC and CBS demanded the White House on Friday apologize, “retract” their comments on the case, and admit they “unfairly jump[ed] to conclusions” now that prosecutors have dropped the rape charges against the two teenage boys.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the press, as usual, Monday morning. "We go up there every day armed with a set of facts we have, and sometimes it becomes a game of gotcha, which is someone comes in and says, ‘Well, I know this instead,' and that's–if that's the game, it's who can stump the chump, then that's not really an exercise in trying to get to the bottom of a situation," he said on CBS This Morning.
Before White House press secretary Sean Spicer threw down with reporters over President Trump’s wiretap claims on Thursday, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney faced left-leaning questions on the President’s budget that included fears people will “suffer” as a result of the conservative proposals.
Another day, another liberal journalist scolding White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. This time, ABC News's Jonathan Karl and CNN's Jim Acosta sparred with Spicer over wiretapping and press bias. The Trump aide accused Karl of "mischaracterizing" and chided Acosta for "cherry picking" the conclusion reached by the Senate and House Intelligence Committees that former President Barack Obama did not order a wiretap of Trump Tower during the 2016 election.
Amidst the snow on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer held a daily briefing and he tussled with CNN’s Jim Acosta after Acosta defended ObamaCare and wondered if President Trump is “okay with that there are going to be millions of people who aren’t going to have coverage.”
