Another day, another outrageous lie claim from the liberal mainstream media that is proven to be a total lie.
During the White House’s Social Media Summit in the Rose Garden on Thursday, CNN’s Jim Acosta got busted sharing an edited clip aimed at making it look like conservative media figures were harassing and “abusing” members of the mainstream media.
But soon after the full video was released, it’s more than clear Acosta lied about the entire thing.
It all began when Acosta shared a smug selfie of himself on Twitter and complained the Trump gave conservative media figures front row seats at the event and made the media stand at the back.
The moment from the event that generated the most buzz online involved CNN contributor Brian Karem and radio host Sebastian Gorka.
“WH officials invited Trump’s social media allies to sit in the Rose Garden. But after the event was over, West Wing aides did nothing when those social media figures began to verbally abuse reporters who were trying to do their jobs. A good snapshot of how press is treated by WH,” Acosta tweeted.
Acosta then linked to a video that only shows Gorka calling Karem a “punk” and social media figures cheering Gorka while Karem’s fellow “real journalists” complained.
Below is Acosta’s edited clip that doesn’t show what Karem said to trigger Gorka.
Now, let’s get to the real news.
The full clip shows that before Gorka walked over to Kareem, the CNN contributor had said conservative figures were part of a Trump demonic cult and then motioned his head towards the parking lot, telling people to come have a “real conversation” with him.
He was clearly implying some sort of physical altercation with pro-Trump figures in attendance at the event.
Breitbart’s Kyle Morris responded by providing another angle of the incident, writing in the video caption: “Sounds as if Brian Karem was only in attendance to berate Trump supporters.”
As Morris’ video shows, Karem prompted Gorka’s actions by taunting the social media figures.
“This is a group of people that are eager for demonic possession,” said Karem.
In response, Gorka yelled back, “And you’re a journalist, right?”
“Hey, come on over here and talk with me, brother, we can go outside and have a long conversation,” said Karem, gesturing for Gorka to come over.
Gorka complied, walking over rapidly. “You’re threatening me now, at the White House? In the Rose Garden? You’re threatening me, in the Rose Garden! You are a punk! You’re not a journalist! You’re a punk!” Gorka yelled in Karem’s face.
“Go home,” said Karem. “Hey Gorka, get a job!”
Acosta shared an edited clip in a nasty attempt to make it seem like Gorka and other conservatives were “harassing” the “real journalists.”
But, as usual, the full video clearly shows it was the CNN losers who were trying to instigate an altercation, and then they cried foul when Gorka came over and dared them to do something.
