Less than a week ago the so-called journalists of the mainstream news media were rending their garments and setting their hair on fire because CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins was barred from a single White House event.
It was a travesty – a violation of the First Amendment Freedom of the Press!!!
And Trump is an authoritarian!!!
But they’re over it now.
Now the elitist snobs from the White House Press Corps are rending their garments and setting their hair on fire because President Trump let Daily Caller White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti ask a question during his joint press conference with the Italian Prime Minister.
How dare the President let some guy from a troll farm like the Daily Caller ask a question?! He’s not a real journalist like we are!!!
And Trump is an authoritarian!!!!
As I said just days after the Inauguration, the White House Press Corps believe themselves to be a part of some elitist country club – one where they get to decide who is allowed in. They want to be sure to keep the riff-raff out.
After Sean Spicer fielded questions from reporters from LifeZette and Breitbart, Joel Pevelski from Gentlemen’s Quarterly was horrified.
Horrified I tell you!!!
Brietbart and Lifezette are not news organizations and shouldn't be treated as such

Mind you. Joel Pavelski works for GQ magazine.
Now, there’s some hard-hitting news reporting right there!
Breitbart News just announced adding additional reporters to their team including Sam Chi (formerly of RealClear Politics) and Kristina Wong (formerly of The Hill).
[Chi and Wong. Boy, those sound like a couple of White Nationalists, don’t they?]
But Joel from Gentlemen’s Quarterly does not view Breitbart as a news organization.
You know. The way Gentlemen’s Quarterly is.
Somewhere along the way, these White House “reporters” decided that the press corps is a private club. And membership therein is only possible if they and they alone approve of the news site in question.
To these journalists, the Daily Caller reporters aren’t real journalists; they’re riff-raff.
Meanwhile, they consider April Ryan, a former jazz DJ, as a fully qualified “journalist.”
Makes total sense, doesn’t it?
You see, they’re afraid that a reporter from the Daily Caller won’t ask tough questions.
You know, the way they always have.
After all, who can forget this hard-hitting question directed at President Barack Obama?
Everyone wants to know, what kind of dog are you going to buy for your girls? Have you decided on a private or public school for your daughters?
I know! That’s some serious hard-core journalism right there, isn’t it?
Almost as no-holds-barred as this question on Obama’s first 100 days in office:
During these first 100 days, what has surprised you the most about this office? Enchanted you the most from serving in this office? Humbled you the most? And troubled you the most?
Man. They’re right. Those non-Daily Caller reporters really do know how to get to the nitty-gritty, consequential nub of the matter, don’t they?
Now are you ready for the real kick in the head?
Kaitlan Collins – the CNN reporter who was barred from one White House event just last week? The one whom the entire “mainstream” news media rallied behind as if Trump tried to have her murdered?
Guess where she worked before going to CNN?
She was the White House correspondent for …
…wait for it …
The Daily Caller!
These people are so stupid just talking about them reduces my IQ.
