The White House on Wednesday banned a CNN reporter from a press event in the Rose Garden for asking President Trump questions, according to a CNN report.

Kaitlan Collins, a White House reporter for CNN, was acting as the “pool reporter” for all networks during President Trump’s meeting with European Union commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday afternoon.

The article goes on to state the following:

Collins reportedly asked the president questions about the day’s most talked-about stories, a typical move for a pool reporter.

She asked, “Did Michael Cohen betray you, Mr. President?” and repeated the question once, according to CNN.  She then asked, “Mr. President, are you worried about what Michael Cohen is about to say to the prosecutors? Are you worried about what is on the other tapes, Mr. President?”

When Trump didn’t respond, Collins asked, “Why is Vladimir Putin not accepting your invitation, Mr. President?”

Trump ignored the questions and said, “Thank you very much, everybody” to the press pool.

After the event, Bill Shine, the newly-minted White House deputy chief of staff for communications, called Collins into his office. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also present, according to CNN.

The former Fox News executive and the press secretary then informed Collins that she was not invited to a press availability in the Rose Garden later in the afternoon because she asked questions that were “inappropriate” for the venue and for reportedly shouting the questions, according to the CNN report.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released the following statement:

“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office, a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so. Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event, but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend. She said it didn’t matter to her because she hadn’t planned to be there anyway. To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House.”

  1. If CNN didn’t act like a belligerant disrespectful child at public events embarrassing themselves and all the people present THEN maybe they could sit at the ADULT table.

  2. We were all sitting at home, and we’re watching the President and the President of the EU. She, the reporter started screaming questions at our President. We, had an important guest and she, the reporter, was very rude. It was unprofessional, screeching , hollaring, and she needed to be out of there. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.

  3. When are they going to realize that we don’t give a rats A– if Trump got some sex on the side or that he gave her money to be quiet. We do care that we have more cash in our wallet and that Trump is actually getting things done that will Make America Great Again. By the way, I will venture to say that almost every Senator, Congressman or Congresswoman and other government officials have had affairs or quickies in huge numbers. I once worked at the a Merriot Hotel in Washington D.C., and it was common knowledge that our government reps were involved in all kinds of sexual situations. So please people get off of that subject and ask questions regarding our Country.
