After the White House Social Media Summit earlier today, President Trump held an announcement about the executive order on whether the citizenship question will be present on the census in the White House Rose Garden.
At the conclusion of the announcement, CNN political analyst and Senior White House reporter for Playboy Brian Karem said the crowd present for Trump’s citizenship question announcement was “prone to demonic possession”.
Former Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka did not let the comment go unnoticed, calling Karem out. In response Karem threatened Gorka, saying the two should ‘take it outside’.

Dr. Gorka got up from his chair near the front of the crowd and walked back towards Karem, saying:
“You’re threatening me now in the White House – in the Rose Garden, threatening me in the Rose Garden.”
Once Dr. Gorka was face to face with Karem, he then continues:
“You’re not a journalist, you’re a punk – a punk!”
The crowd then begins to chant “Gorka” as he walks away.
As the cheers die down, Jim Hanson tells Karem: “Just for the record, he’d kick your punk ass.”
