Fight breaks out with right-wing conspiracy theorists ‘getting in the faces of media’ after Trump presser

Published

Things got heated in the White House Rose Garden when right-wing conspiracy theorists faced off against actual journalists.

PBS NewsHour reporter Courtney Norris was one of the members of the press pool reporting on President Donald Trump’s recent decision to cave in on the census. But things got heated after the president left.

Prior to the press conference, however, Trump spoke to a crowd of right-wing conspiracy theorists welcomed to the White House to talk about his 2020 campaign. Trump told the group that if they wanted to join him in the Rose Garden that they would be welcomed.

After finishing his press conference, Trump exited with Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, but the right-wing social media influencers reportedly got “in the faces of the media” as they were trying to exit.

Norris noted that it was still a “scene” and that one video she captured showed former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka and Joy Villa yelling.

President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic congresswomen were officially condemned in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, which has led to some cable news media speculation that Democrats might be overreaching in telling the president to stop being racist.

"Trump ain't playing 3D chess on this," Enten wrote on Twitter. "He's playing Candy Land. Trump managed to turn a potential advantage (a very liberal Dem party) into tweets that a majority are against."

Published

Polls are now in on President Donald Trump's vicious, racist attacks the four Democratic congresswomen of color referred to as "the Squad." And the new numbers, while bad for Trump, give insight into why he is so eager to keep the issue going.

A Reuters/Ipsos survey shows that while Trump's approval stands at a dismal 41 percent, and went down with Democrats and independents, it actually went up 4 points among Republican voters, to 72 percent.

A separate USA TODAY/Ipsos poll found that of the Americans who were aware of the controversy, 68 percent found Trump's behavior offensive — but 57 percent of Republicans said they agreed with him.

Phrased Was Coined About the Congresswomen by White Nationalist Fox News Host Laura Ingraham

President Donald Trump is not letting go of his latest obsession: the four progressive Democratic freshmen Congresswomen who are also women of color.

In an early Wednesday morning rant Trump quoted Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy, a chameleon who likes to appear as a moderate on MSNBC, then take off his mask and reveal himself as strongly conservative.

Trump, quoting Kennedy, called the four Congresswomen, "wack jobs" and "the four horsewomen of the apocalypse," a phrase white nationalist Fox News host Laura Ingraham coined to attack the progressive Democrats when they were first elected in November.
