It looks like there are consequences for rudely heckling invited White House guests in the Rose Garden. The White House has suspended Playboy’s White House Heckler Brian Karem’s hard pass for thirty days.
Received an email today shortly before 5 p.m. from the WH: as of Monday afternoon my press pass is suspended for 30 days.— Brian J. Karem (@BrianKarem) August 2, 2019
Of course Karem is claiming this was an “anti-First Amendment move” as if acting like a horse’s ass in the Rose Garden is a Constitutionally-protected right. He’s claiming the suspension was retaliation for “asking tough questions.”
“It’s an attempt to stifle the free press,” the Playboy employee whined. “It shouldn’t stand, and it won’t.”
Just for context, here is the repulsive behavior that got the heckler suspended.

We got the nice seats & I guess "journalist" @BrianKarem was sad
He tried to pick a fight w/ @SebGorka & then thought better

Oh, yeah. Such a Free Press warrior, ain’t he?
Naturally fellow “journalists” are defending this heckler as if he’s an actual reporter and not some scummy, slobbering pile of crap who shouts insults to fellow citizens invited to the White House during a Rose Garden event.
Nobody has a Constitutional right to a White House hard pass. And nobody is silencing this lout.
Karem is free to stand outside the White House gate and shout all the insults he wants.
Press credentials should be reserved for actual reporters, not a loudmouth heckler like this Playboy employee.
Karem won’t use this 30-day suspension to reflect on his own abhorrent, inappropriate behavior. Why should he? The usual suspects in the news media will cast him in the role of a First Amendment Martyr and he’ll ride that wave happily.
These people are garbage.
