[UPDATE: NEW VIDEO SHOWS REPORTER TAUNTING] “You’re not a journalist, you’re a punk!” Gorka goes off on reporter for Playboy

It looks like it got a little saucy at the end of the Rose Garden even today. As the the crowd was getting up to leave, Sebastian Gorka runs up to Brian Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, and calls him a ‘punk’ after Karem reportedly said the crowd in attendance for the President’s announcement was “prone to demonic possession:”

Here’s another clip from a different angle:



Karem probably deserved it.

He’s certainly said ridiculous stuff in the past, like when he argued that Trump’s agreement with Mexico was just a blank piece of paper.

 
UPDATE: Here’s a bit more in the aftermath start at 11:46, including James O’Keefe telling the Playboy reporter to be more responsible:

 
UPDATE: Here’s a new video that shows Karem taunting Gorka and just generally being an ass.

And there’s ALWAYS more to the story…

  1. I love Gorka’s radio show. Michael Medved’s show is sorely missed, of course.

  2. Court rules that President Trump can defund Planned Parenthood. Will cut almost $60 million of tax payer dollars.

  3. As with every corporate leftist news outlet Playboy’s, Karem’s goal was to nefariously incite a confrontation. Sebastian Gorka quickly realized what Karem’s ulterior motive was and he rightfully called out Karem for being the despicable leftist punk that he is.

  4. I’m still not sure why Playboy has WH credentials – who the hell gets their news from Playboy?! This guy always looks like he’s just crawled out of bed and is unwashed. The self-importance is staggering. They are there as “reporters” and should be on the back of the bus – they are working. Those in the front were guests and as host, Trump has the privilege of asking whomever he wants.

  5. I’m glad we’re back on Disqus. You can see in your email what comment they are replying to and everyone can see who and what comment is being replied to on the page. With WordPress it can become quite confusing and tiresome trying to figure out what comment people are replying to, especially if they don’t tag it with a name.

    1. I also like that with Disqus, you don’t have to check your email to see there’s a response to your comment. It’s all their in your Disqus notification page. And you can reply to the person directly on the notification page.

  6. Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Thunderdome!!

    I call dibs on the popcorn concession. 🙂

  7. I’m glad to see many conservatives growing a spine and are finally taking it to the Lilliputians posing as journalists… it’s truly refreshing. To the posers on CNN, MSNBC, etc.. i.e. Navarro, Kristol, Wallace, Wilson, et al., when Trump leaves office, your “conservative” services will no longer be needed by the MSM, as your USEFUL IDIOT status will be revoked.

    Who authorized the WH Press Credential for Playboy magazine? I never knew that rag was in the news business… smh

  8. Trump’s agreement with Mexico was just a blank piece of paper.Regarding the huge flow of illegal immigrants coming across the Southern Border.Gorka, the Reporter was not that far off,why attack him for that.There must have been several other issues you could have attacked him on.Look for Gorka to be on Hannity tonight. HMMM

      1. Thanks Ryan,I was referring to the real signed agreement with Mexico regarding immigration

  9. Oh good, I was hoping for an O/T today, because it’ll make for a good discussion about whether we think Blue Lives should act with impunity and without consequence when it comes to shooting at dogs and wounding children.

    Double the drama too, because it’s a… dun dun duuuuuuun, David French article. And just the mere mention of that name sends the Trumpers into fits.

    So without further ado…

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/07/a-dreadful-police-shooting-highlights-the-need-to-change-a-terrible-law/

    What’s it going to be Blue Lifers and Trump-lovers? Going to disagree with Davey on this one? Going to support cops shooting at dogs for no reason, and then being accountable in no way for shooting a kid instead?

      1. Seen a lot of argument to the effect that we should be forgiving of them, because “we don’t know what it’s like in their shoes” and “they have a dangerous job.”

        “Maybe Officer Dog Shooter was scared, and the kid was just an unfortunate casualty but…”

          1. It’s not a burn.

            It’s a simple reflection that that is not an excuse for cops to get away with anything.

            1. Nobody ever said police should have immunity from consequence or that mistakes don’t get made.
              Take this example.
              https://abcnews.go.com/US/police-officer-fatally-shot-man-wrong-apartment-fired/story?id=57829374
              She should not only be fired. She should spend serious time in jail. Being tired, inebriated, or whatever is no excuse for this whether it was an honest mistake or not. I usually just chuckle at some of your b.s. but you’ve hit the special needs motherload with this one.

                1. Nobody here to my knowledge supported her getting leniency. If you can find someone here who did I’ll grant you that ONE opinion. But you’re just sh*t posting generalisations trying to play gotcha and pretending you have a valid point. You didn’t and you don’t.

                2. Yes. And I agree with the author. But you came in looking to own someone here. As if the general sentiment is that the level of force police use is always correct. Again, you attempted to own everyone here and you failed.

                3. Great. So you agree with French. Let’s work with that.

                  So, what kind of repercussions should a cop who shoots at dogs and hits children instead face? At the very least, French posits he should be liable to the kid for his injuries. Agree or disagree?

                  Anything more than that? Like, maybe, jail the cop? Strip his badge, pension, and put him in a cell?

                4. For hitting a child due to poor marksmanship. Cop loses his job. No severence. No bennies. Parents have a right to pursue legal action. Definitively civil action. Potentially criminal. I personally, would even waive legal action against a parent had they been carrying legally and shot the cop in response. They’re defending their child and a uniform and a badge doesn’t make someone altruistic.

                  That said, I also don’t think police should have to back away for a 1/4 mile against an armed attacker. That’s just stupid. We allow them to be armed hoping they follow through with proper useage. Just like we do with our military. Sometimes they fail. Part of it is due to taking away some effective weapons police used for years. Billy clubs, PR batons, mace, and the choke hold have all been taken away from everyday police leaving them with tasers, that may or may not work, or their pistols. Only riot police get access to these weapons.

                5. For hitting a child due to poor marksmanship. Cop loses his job. No severence. No bennies. Parents have a right to pursue legal action. Definitively civil action. Potentially criminal.

                  Agreed.

                  See? For all that contention, we take the exact same position.

                  That said, I also don’t think police should have to back away for a 1/4 mile against an armed attacker.

                  That’s not at issue here.

                  Sometimes they fail. Part of it is due to taking away some effective weapons police used for years.

                  Yea, but that’s not really an excuse. The answer isn’t a police that tries to self-remedy the ineffectiveness. It’s be ineffective.

                  And then place the blame on those who made them ineffective.

                6. “See? For all that contention, we take the exact same position.”

                  Because you generalized everyone here without giving them a chance to read the story, like a smarmy little prick.

                  “That’s not at issue here.”

                  It sure was a week or so ago with that cop that got attacked by the knife wielding guy. You yourself said you felt he should have to back up that far before engaging. So I’m calling you on your b.s. but it’s based on your actual statement on the matter. Not a stupid assumption based on “feelings”.

                7. Because you generalized everyone here without giving them a chance to read the story

                  And then you read the story and were like, “Hey, actually AT’s kinda right about cops.” And then you broke free of the generalization.

                  But see, you were reflexively against that to begin with. I’m glad you had an open-enough mind to do it though. That’s a mark of strong character.

                  It sure was a week or so ago with that cop that got attacked by the knife wielding guy.

                  Oh, you mean the one who didn’t have to act and then rightfully didn’t? Yea, I applauded his restraint. Good for him for not resorting to lethal force until absolutely necessary.

                  Unlike the cop in this story, who went straight for it.

                8. I swear you are dense.

                  “But see, you were reflexively against that to begin with. I’m glad you had an open-enough mind to do it though. That’s a mark of strong character.”

                  Where did I, or anyone else, say they were reflexively against it, sh*t-wit? Did that happen in the imaginary world where you are correct all the time?

                9. So, devoid of context, if you hear the headline:

                  “Cop shoots dog, hits kid instead” is your gut reaction to support or criticize the cop?

                10. Yes, of course, but before you’ve had a chance to read – is your default position to rationalize the action of the cop, or denounce it?

                  That position may change after absorbing the context – but what I’m curious about is the default reaction.

      2. Seen a lot of argument to the effect that we should be forgiving of them, because “we don’t know what it’s like in their shoes” and “they have a dangerous job.”

        “Maybe Officer Dog Shooter was scared, and the kid was just an unfortunate casualty but…”

    1. Only an idiot like you would make this an “either or”argument. Eat sh*t and die, troll.

    2. No one with any common decency or sense supports cops shooting at dogs any more than they support cops taking bribes or committing crimes. Everyone knows that there are dirty cops and that they should be removed from public service.

      1. Was he really dirty though? One might argue that the dog just freaked him out and he panicked. Don’t we… y’know, make excuses for that kind of shitty policing all the time?

    3. Only an idiot like you would make this an “either or”argument. Eat sh*t and die, troll.

      1. So… are you more understanding of the difficult job they do, or are you not going to accept that as a lame excuse for them to get away with the consequences of their actions?

  10. I ❤️ Seb!

    It was nice to see Joy Villa (in that SMASHING dress!) and James O’Keefe there too. They, along with that other fellow I’m not familiar with, gave that Playboy reporter a nice, reasoned, but firm talking to.

    1. Some rando in the video did say that Gorka could kick that guy’s ass. Glorious.

    2. Just so you know. Joy villa is a Scientologist first and foremost. She was a Bernie bro’ until Trump won. Now she’s MAGA all day. She had on her website that she was “exploring” a run for congress, looking for donations. The address for the donations was a facility owned by Scientology. This is about her getting Scientology a foothold in government to protect them from some of the stuff that could be coming with the ongoing exposure of their cult. She’s a fraud.

      1. Even if that’s true, and I have no reason to doubt you, I don’t care who she supported in the past. The WalkAway Movement is all about people who voted for Hillary for Pete’s Sake but only after Trump was in office realized how they had been lied to by the Dems/Media. We need to celebrate and welcome them into the family.

        Now if Villa is currently soliciting donations for Scientology or anything counter to “MAGA” then that’s troubling. But so far I have only seen her take a lot of heat for being an unapologetic fan of Trump.

        1. I’m always suspicious of anybody who goes from “Yay, Socialism. Free everything. Trump supporters are stupid.” To ” Less regulation. Pride in country. MAGA all day.” or whatever. It doesn’t smell right when you jump from one end of the spectrum to another in record time. That’s what standard politicians do. Sometimes conservatives are a little too eager to get famous voices on their sides. As far as her taking heat, I’ll quote a friend who’s band replied to some negative press. ” Bad publicity, good publicity. It’s still publicity.”

          1. Did you ever hear of Brandon Straka, who started the WalkAway movement? It took him only a couple of months of asking questions and do some honest research for him to convert from a loony Leftie to a full on Trump supporter.

            The Dem/Left position is the default position for most people, especially in certain “groups” or under a certain age, unless they are deliberately and consistently taught differently. It is not a thoughtful or thought out position. When challenged, they usually can’t tell you why. In short, they are a product of massive brainwashing from all sides of society. You know them well.

            So when someone “wakes up” and starts to investigate what the Media has been feeding them, what the Dem leaders have been doing, etc, and mostly how they’ve been lied to about how “evil” and “hateful” conservatives are, it shakes up their whole world. And then the conversion comes quickly and completely.

            1. I always “watch the other hand” when people are that malleable. I know of that guy, didn’t know his name. Fair enough. But he’s also not a member of a cult to my knowledge and he’s not trying to scam Republicans for money. Hey, support who you like. But I will be no fan of that woman no matter who she supports.

    1. Anyone who’s paid to see fake boobs over the years is kinda of an idiot to begin with (IMO).

  11. Listening to Levin. He says the citizenship question was on the census for nearly 175 years. Obama had it removed in 2010. What is the problem? How can one president suddenly remove it, without interference, after almost 2 centuries, and nine years later, the next president wants to add it back, and it’s controversial? If one can take it away just like that then the other can add it back on just like that.

    1. No different than DACA. With the wave of his wand, Obama put it in place but Trump can’t touch it. Makes no sense.

      1. Much has to do with the peculiarity regarding regulatory rules – Congress CAN arbitrarily eliminate them within a short time-frame (but rarely do so). The Executive can remove them, BUT has to follow rules (i.e.: proper notice, etc.). The issue with Obama is Congress was too cowardly (or lazy) to address his shenanigans and the public at large was mostly unaware of what he was doing. Trump’s problem (as the ‘racist, xenophobe, Nazi’) is the myriad of AG’s and special interest groups who run to the court the moment he announces a change. What I find most absurd are the seemingly inept attorneys who argue for the Administration – they do seem to have an utter lack of will to defend it…

    2. IMO, It’s up to the republicans to keep shoving this fact in the leftist MSM’s faces.

      Obama removed it because he knew he could get away with it, just like he did when he illegally violated our immigration laws when he defiantly allowed illegals to enter the country. He also made twenty-nine illegal changes to Obamacare when he decided to circumvent his lawful obligation to get Congressional approval first.

  12. For those of you not familiar with Seb Gorka, he has a wonderful daily radio program. And if you can’t catch that, you can get it on his free podcast. Just search either his name or “America First.”

    1. It’s on around lunch time here in AZ. Good show

  13. And it is now time that I unsubscribe to the Cornell Lab for Orinthology newsletters. Today’s email has this:
    “Overlooked for a Century, Female Birds Are Getting Their Due
    Female songbirds and female ornithologists have not always received the credit they deserve. When Darwin first proposed the notion of sexual selection—the idea that female choice influences evolution—many Victorian contemporaries thought it preposterous. But science repeatedly finds that in evolution, sometimes it’s the females that hold the power.”
    Why, oh why, does this garbage have to infiltrate the bird world? The leftists will find ANYTHING in which to insert their SJW tripe.

    1. I live less than ten minutes from Cornell’s Lab for Ornithology. C.U. is the main employer in our region. I live in leftist liberal la la land. I see so many pro leftist yard signs and bumper sticker it’s sickening. It’s a standing joke around here that you can tell an Ithaca, NY car from those outside of the area because the Ithaca resident’s cars are covered in liberal propaganda bumper stickers.

  14. The punk with the attitude is from PLAYBOY, and HE’S disrespecting other people???? Get real!

  15. A White House journalist from PLAYBOY? Be serious. Get rid of him. He’s taking up air and space.

    1. If he was a serious journalist it wouldn’t matter. He isn’t !!! He is indeed, a Punk. A slimier version of Jim Acosta (if that’s possible)

    2. Taking up air? he’s emitting green house gas, why isn’t AOC all over that guy? FINE HIM!!!

  16. I don’t think I would tangle with Gorka up close. I heard he’s about 6’4″ and knows how to handle himself.

  17. I could never tell if someone replied to me in WordPress. I can go back to being more active. Good move, Scoop.

  18. Ahh, yes. For when someone says they ‘read’ Playboy. Hmm, old disqus. I’m gonna miss those emoticons. Can we now block people? PS. Tommy Robinson got jailed again. (Super angry emot. here.)

        1. T_oll is/was definitely annoying….I am going to miss seeing all of AT’s down votes….

          1. Yep. We won’t really need to block T_oll because that was most likely an old Disqus user who was banned anyway.

            The thing I want now is to have all the threads started by blocked users collapsed. If I’m going to have AT blocked, I don’t really want to see long back-and-forth threads with “This user blocked” every other comment. Just hide the whole darned thing.

  19. Gorka represents a new group of conservatives that are DONE taking crap from propagandists parading as journalists.

  20. Scoop, what prompted the switch to wpDiscuz 4 months ago? And now why are we switching back? I think I do prefer the Disqus commenting, but I’m not sure why the changes..

    1. If I remember correctly there were problems with Disqus, like getting email notifications of replies several days after they are made. I can’t recall exactly what else. I’m glad we’re back to Disqus though because even with it’s problems it’s still a lot better than WordPress.

  21. Gorka is a spaz – I could never understand why some people considered him a “conservative”.

    Return to Disqus? FINALLY! WordPress is a joke.

  22. Disqus is back! I quit commenting since the switch because i never could get mine to work. Not that I had a lot to say anyway. Our anybody cared.
