President Trump is making good on his promise to help the “forgotten men and women.” Obscure liberal writer Brian Karem was just hired as a CNN contributor after becoming a YouTube star for haranguing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders at a press conference.
Karem made the announcement on Twitter, where he bragged that he’s “happy” his misogynistic tirade elevated his career.
Karem rose from obscurity in June 2017, after he badgered Sarah Huckabee Sanders during a WH press conference.
Before that incident, most people had never heard of Brian Karem. He had 450 Twitter followers before clashing with Sanders; he now has more than 82,000.
In the exchange, Karem blasted Sanders for dismissing some of the “fake news” reporting of media outlets who promote their anti-Trump propaganda without a shred of hard evidence.
Happy to announce that in addition to covering the WH for Playboy and the Sentinel newspapers – I will now be an on-air contributor for CNN

Sanders pointed to the three CNN reporters who were fired in June for falsely linking Anthony Scaramucci to the Russia collusion hoax. “We’ve been going on this Russia-Trump hoax for the better part of a year now with no evidence,” she said.
That’s when Karem shouted: “What you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look and say, ‘See, once again, the President is right and everybody else out here is fake media.’ Everybody in this room is only trying to do their job!”
Sanders shot back: “If anything has been inflamed, it’s the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media.”
Brian Karem isn’t the only obscure leftist reporter who raised their profile by arguing on air with a White House press secretary.
April Ryan was hired as a CNN analyst in June 2017, shortly after whining that former WH press secretary Sean Spicer had been “sexist” toward her because he asked her to stop interrupting him.
April Ryan is known mostly for her race-baiting and for not knowing the difference between “net worth” and “annual income.”

Wow, math is hard! I'm April Ryan, and I don't understand the difference between yearly income and net total assets!

Similarly, CNN’s resident clown Jim Acosta has become a household name by repeatedly hijacking the live White House press conferences. When the pressers were briefly taken off the air a few months ago, Acosta complained the loudest because he had lost the forum for his daily temper tantrums.
Don’t worry, Jim. They’re back, so you can continue to provide comic relief for the rest of us.
