WH suspends press pass for CNN, Playboy propagandist Brian Karem after profane attack against Trump

As we and others reported earlier, Brian Karem, a propagandist for CNN and Playboy who sometimes seems to be what Twitchy called a “Jim Acosta wannabe,” made a complete ass of himself during a White House Rose Garden event and nearly came to blows with Sebastian Gorka.  According to the Gateway Pundit, Gorka and another witness heard Karem refer to Trump as a “f*****g moron.”

He also reportedly harassed, insulted and threatened Trump’s guests at the event.  As a result of his unprofessional, boorish behavior, his White House press pass has been suspended for 30 days.

Karem confirmed this on Twitter:  “Received an email today shortly before 5 p.m. from the WH: as of Monday afternoon my press pass is suspended for 30 days.”

He promised to appeal the decision:

Playboy isn’t too happy about it, either:

Perhaps they should do what Karem’s parents apparently failed to do — teach him some manners.  After all, he’s supposed to be a “professional,” right?

Oh, wait, we no longer have professional “journalists” in the era of Trump — just loud-mouthed bullies with press passes.

By the way, Karem didn’t bother to state the reason for his suspension.  So others filled in the blanks.

The Gateway Pundit further noted:

Trump held a press event with Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in the Rose Garden Thursday afternoon for an announcement regarding gathering citizenship information for the 2020 census. In attendance were guests of the President who had been invited to his social media summit held earlier Thursday.

According to Gorka, who attended the social media summit as an invited guest, Karem called Trump “that f*cking moron” after the President ignored Karem bellowing if he would take questions from the press. It was that profane outburst, spoken in a low voice by Karem not heard on the videos but loud enough to be heard by the social media summit guests, that led to the back and forth between Gorka and Karem caught on video.

In normal times, this would be correct.  But we unfortunately no longer live in normal times.  Today, a large number of alleged “journalists” are little more than paid Democrat Party propagandists deliberately fomenting hate and violence against those who support the president.

As Chris Plante told Tucker Carlson (Emphasis added):

No, I mean honestly, this whole thing is a love-fest. We’ve got Jake Tapper on there who is a former Democrat hill staffer, he worked for the Democrat who’s son married Chelsea Clinton. It’s all a rub-a-dub-dub. Dana Bash was married to Jeremy Bash who was an Obama Administration official, now on MSNBC. And then of course there’s Don Lemon. There are no hardball questions. There are no gotcha questions. There are no trap questions. They’re all going to see each other at Hot Tin Roof on Martha’s Vineyard. It’s August, they are all going on vacation together in a couple weeks. Their kids play together, they go to school together, it’s corrupt. The system is corrupt, what can I tell you? You know perfectly well that it is. We all know perfectly well that it is and it’s not really even a political debate. It’s a television show. And CNN is part of the Democratic Party’s apparatus. That’s that.

It’s almost enough to make one think they really do want a second bloody civil war in America.
