Report: Playboy reporter abruptly removed from White House Correspondents Association

Pundits and politicians pinned any Washington D.C. drama on Donald Trump for the past four years, but Joe Biden’s White House doesn’t seem to be any better.

Playboy White House correspondent Brian Karem claimed on Friday that the White House Correspondents Association has kicked him out of the press pool, linking the decision to a critical column posted just hours before he was notified of his dismissal

Karem gained notoriety during Donald Trump’s administration for his shockingly abrasive — and at times, downright unprofessional — interactions with Trump administration officials.

At least Karem can claim consistency, because he continues to find conflict wherever he goes, no matter the political party in charge.

“This morning at 9 a.m. EST my latest column for Playboy posted – one in which I criticized the WHCA for a conflict of interest. At 10:32 a.m. I was informed by the WHCA that my request for membership this year has been declined,” Karem tweeted on Friday.  “Guess I won’t go to the dinner this year!”

Karem wrote in the column he’s targeted as the reason the WHCA unceremoniously booted him that the coronavirus restrictions put in place by the organization were “unnecessary” and “reminiscent of the Trump era.”

“The Biden people say they want to demonstrate they are taking the pandemic seriously. But these new restrictions—unnecessary and poorly planned—are reminiscent of the Trump era: They ignore the fact that reporters have done a damn good job of policing themselves. We aren’t getting sick, and we’re taking steps to make sure we don’t,” he wrote. “What hurdles must we overcome for the Biden administration to see that?”

Karem also took issue with the association’s limits on who would be allowed in the press room, pointing out that WHCA leadership does not appear to be subject to the same rules as everyone else.

“The Biden team put the WHCA in charge of determining which of their professional comrades can enter, based on a daily lottery,” Karem explained. “Reporters in the presidential pool, which includes WHCA board members, are now guaranteed access to the briefing room and the president on a regular but reduced basis. Everyone else is shut out with no guaranteed direct access. The only slim hope—extremely slim hope—of getting into the briefing room is by winning the daily lottery to do your job.”

The Correspondents Association has not yet issued a public comment on Karem’s accusation that he’s been unjustly removed from the press pool.

      I can’t say a Father because we are the same age!

      1. No, the DEMONRAT NAZI COMMIES have 4 years now to fix and make sure their FAUX VOTING MACHINES, so that even when they are torn apart for an audit there will be no evidence of voter FRAUD… TRUMP will not be back unless we get rid of these FAUX FRAUDULANT VOTING MACHINES. ILLEGALS ALLOWED TO VOTE without voter IDENTIFICATION, and FRAUDULANT MAIL IN VOTING. IT WILL BE WORSE THEN 2020 ELECTIONS AND THE NAZI COMMIE DEMONRATS WILL MAKE SURE OF THAT. HELL these NAZI COMIES ARE ALREADY DESTROYING OUR CONSTITUTION AND DESTROYING ALL OUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS…

HE HAS TO TALK WITH FOREIGN LEADERS.THERE GOING TO LAUGH AT HIM AND DO THINGS BEHIND HIS BACK MAKING A FOOL OUT OF BIDEN. WE WILL BE HAVING A WAR NOT LONG COMING. YOU COULD BET ON THAT.

    3. Hell YES! I’M WITH GREG ON NEWSMAX IN REGARDS TO TRUMP BEING MISSED! & ALSO MY CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS!

    4. PRESIDENT TRUMP was the BEST CIC that we have ever had………..THANK GOD for his MAGA and his desire to do what is best for the legal citizens of the US………..

  1. Yes we all miss President Trump! Now we have a doddering “ clump” in the White House, who is hell-bent on bankrupting the country, handing it over to the illegals and China! Wonder how all those unions are feeling about endorsing Biden now! Bet they have major buyer’s remorse, now that their jobs are gone! Be careful what you ask for!

    1. Yes, indeed ..The unions that voted against Trump, now get what THEY DESERVE …THERE WILL BE MORE …THE D’S WILL EAT THEIR YOUNG FOR POWER ..

  2. They have to limit ho sees Biden. They can’t risk he’s asked a non-scripted question. He might act like himself- or if his pill hasn’t kicked in yet.

    1. right, they are only going to allow their own paid bias news reporters in, because he will not be able to answer true questions with a true answer for sure, have anyone heard the song We did not start the fire? by Billy Joel, he wrote the song 11 years ago, and every word in the song has a great meaning of today, bring it up with the lyrics ok and what you read will have you saying WOW did he see into the future , amazing song for sure.

  3. I pray everyday that God will forgive this country for our Sins and bring back Trump as President. This Country has
    turned it’s back on Our Lord and Savior but he will forgive us if we ask. Please ask him to forgive us of our Sins.

    1. I pray continually for our nation. LORD YOU know that Americans have done much wrong and we have turned away form YOU. FATHER I pray that people will turn back to YOU and we will once again be one nation under GOD. THY will be done. AMEN

    2. Linda So true. I am so sad and depressed over this election. God is in control. My faith is in him.Bless you and pray for this country.

      1. BIDEN TOOK SHOWERS WITH HIS DAUGHTER. A PERVERT. ITS IN THE NEWS.BOTH KIDS ARE ON DRUGS ASHLEY AND HUNTER. WHAT A DISGRACFULFAMILY. MUST READ THIS DISGRACFUL STORY.?

    3. you are so right. But we must remember God can always turn bad to good. He allows somethings to happen for a reason. I believe he put President Trump in office in the first place and he can put him back…(KEEP PRAYING0

  4. When does the IMPEACHMENT start , Magoo Biden should get the same treatment as Donald Trump did for his term in office . He should get the same , new accusations every day. Bring up all his mucky history.

  5. Its okay for Biden to black list a reporter, but not for Trump. Holy Hell broke loose when he kicked out one who deserved it. Such two faced idiots we now have leading our country. We truly need to get rid of Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer right away.

  6. It’s a sad state of affairs for senate republicans afraid to impeach Trump fearing republicans won’t vote for them and voting to impeach showing that they agree what Trump did to encourage capitol riots was wrong would help them. I think fellow republicans should encourage our senators to do the right thing and impeach Trump and if they don’t we won’t vote for them again.

    1. I am a Republican and I support him. You are saying that you will support Biden who does not even know what is going. He needs help.

  7. So tired of the hypocrisy of the dems..ls there no-one in Washington with the courage to do the right thing? Goodness.. we are headed to a civil war politicians, pay attention!

    1. Right..and THEY ARE the democRATS “TERRORISTS”, have NOTHING to do with President Trump or his Voters/Supporters……

  8. It is really mind numbing that this country was so fortunate to have a President like Trump if only for 4 years. but the dumbbells that voted him out could never understand that he had done an outstanding job as President, a job he certainly didn’t need. It is America’s great loss because he knew how to run a country and get important things done, not just the figurehead stuff A very sad day for America.

  9. Beginning to look a lot like communistic government; china censuring news, russia putin re elected for 12 years. Mainstream media called Trump a dictator who’s the real dictator now. Where’s the transparency in Biden’s administration? Wake up America lying and hiding got Biden in office. Dont let your guard down research all stories put out by biden’s minions.
