A White House reporter became the target of ridicule after he claimed he was asked a question about President Trump.
Brian Karem, Executive Editor for The Sentinel Newspapers and the White House correspondent for Playboy Magazine, tweeted that he was asked “Why does the President hate me?” by a young boy.
A young Hispanic boy.
Who recognized his press credentials while randomly riding on the Metro.

So the boy followed enough fake news from the media to worry that the president hated him?
Trump supporters and other members of the media unleashed on Karem, who made headlines in June for interrupting deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during a press briefing.
Because of rude, unhinged reporters like you, Brian. pic.twitter.com/vTPJnVU7A6

Was he 9 years old? Because it’s usually 9 year olds who share that kind of insight.

Kids don’t watch press briefings…. and have no idea of your relationship to the president…. #FakeNews

What a cute, made up story!

The merciless mockery continued, as many Twitter users showed Karem that two can play that game.

Quit making up stories. That stunt was used years ago and We didn’t fall for it then and not falling for it now. Give it up.

Young boy asks a Playboy employee about the president?
— Sam Burnham (@C_SamBurnham) August 25, 2017
If he was woke enough to recognize your credentials, he was woke enough to engage in a robust discussion about illegal immigration.

And most rational intelligent adults would assure the boy the President doesn’t hate him. But that doesn’t make for good click bait.

Every time Brian talks, I just remember that he is the White House reporter for Playboy. That makes me laugh every single time.
