CBS news DC correspondent Errol Barnett found himself on the same flight as White House senior advisor Jared Kushner on Tuesday.
The political reporter attempted to ask a question of the public servant, but Secret Service agents intervened. Kushner is married to fellow White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump, who was also on the flight.
Kushner refused to answer any of the journalist’s questions.
Barnett showed his press credentials, but a Secret Service agent showed no respect for the journalist.
“I don’t give a damn who you are,” the Secret Service agent said, after obscuring the video the journalist was recording with his cell phone.
Jared Kushner did not answer my question and the secret service informs me, while obscuring my phone, that despite identifying as WH press, there is a “time and a place” for questions.
It is unclear when and where that is. pic.twitter.com/KRzlj3hrqw
