The reporter who unloaded on White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during Tuesday’s briefing says that he’s “had enough” of being “bullied” by President Trump’s administration.
“We can’t take the bullying anymore,” Brian Karem, a reporter for the Sentinel Newspapers, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday. “We’ve been called the enemy of the people from that White House. We’ve been told that we’re fake news. We are bullied and browbeaten every day.”
Karem, who has worked for the Washington, D.C.-based news organization since 2004, said he’s been alarmed by the administration’s treatment of the press.
“For the government to sit there and undermine what is essentially checks and balances in the system, it’s disheartening,” he said. “It’s unnerving. I can’t take it anymore. It’s nuts.”
During Tuesday’s briefing, Sanders scolded reporters over the use of unnamed sources and complained about “the constant barrage of fake news” aimed at the administration.
It’s probably too late now for him to grow a pair. I’m sure he’s never read Kim du Toit’s essay on The Pussification of the Western Male.
