(National Sentinel) No Decorum: We’re very lucky to live in a country where there is freedom of the press. In so many nations around the world, authoritarian governments tightly control what the public is allowed to know.
That said, covering a White House administration is a privilege, not a right, and as such reporters who are lucky enough to land a gig covering the Oval Office should display at all times a certain level of respect for our elected leader and his administration.
That means asking tough questions of all presidential administrations and not just those belonging to a certain political party.
It also means not screaming at the president’s press. Like, ever.
On Thursday Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his long-awaited and damning report regarding the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
But rather than discuss the IG’s findings, CNN Brian Karem began to loudly shame and dress down Sarah Huckabee Sanders about her role as a mother over immigration policy that separates children from adults at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Left has gone insane over this issue — despite the fact that it was begun under the Obama administration and despite the fact that his open-door immigration policies are responsible for it.
Nevertheless, Karem’s behavior is disgusting, disgraceful, and disqualifying — he ought to be stripped of his press pass immediately.
Brian Karem: Come on, Sarah! You’re a parent! Don’t you have any empathy for what these people are going through.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Brian, gosh. Settle down.
Brian Karem: Seriously!
Sarah Sanders: I try to be serious but I won’t honor you for speaking out of turn.
Brian Karem: It’s a law and these people have nothing.
Sarah Sanders: Hey Brian, I know you want to get some more TV time. But that is not what this is about.
Brian Karem: You’re not answering the question Sarah! Honestly answer the question. It’s a serious question. These people have nothing. They come to the border with nothing and they put the children in cages (photos from Obama years). You’re a parent! You’re a parent of young children! Don’t you have any empathy for what they go through?!
This is ridiculous. This bully should have been hauled out of the White House by security and told never to come back or risk arrest.
Enough already. The Left’s insanity is getting old and tiresome. This president has a right to serve and has a right to implement his own policies. He won the election.
Fox News analyst and host Jesse Watters agrees that the situation with CNN especially is out of hand and needs to be addressed.
“This guy is an emotional wreck. He embarrassed himself, he doesn’t belong in that room,” Watters said. “It’s like (CNN White House correspondent Jim) Acosta. I don’t care if you have opinions like that, be an analyst. Go debate it on CNN in primetime, but don’t pretend to be a non-partisan correspondent and then melt down like that and embarrass your integrity.”
He continued, “These people don’t belong there, they’re jokes, they need to start ripping press passes away. If you’re going to act like a wild animal, you don’t belong there.”
Watters also went on to say that if it were “a conservative reporter yelling at a female Democrat press secretary, the lead story would be different.”
Of course, he’s right. But then again, a conservative reporter would never behave that way in the first place.
