Psycho reporter Brian Karem has had his White House press pass suspended for 30 days, according to his own tweet on Friday.

The reported suspension came as the result of a Rose Garden incident three weeks ago when Karem got into a confrontation with Sebastian Gorka.

Gorka and other witnesses said that Karem provoked the exchange after the President’s address to his guests when he called Trump “that f*cking moron” after a social media summit. Karem also told the guests that they were all “eager for demonic possession.”

The media was quick to publicize the video showing Gorka angrily approach Karem, but of course without mentioning Karem’s profane insult of Trump that was heard by those nearby.

Karem’s Friday evening tweets indicate he intends to appeal the suspension.

Karem is on Playboy’s payroll as a White House correspondent and he is a CNN political analyst. His fellow CNN “reporter” Brian Stelter confirmed Karem’s suspension …

A video of Karem that apparently picks up right after Karem’s vulgar invective about the President, catches him deriding the Rose Garden guests …

And another angle includes the crowd and their reaction to Karem, as well as Gorka standing up to respond to his disgraceful behavior …

A third tweeted video captures the face-to-face exchange between Karem and Gorka …

Representative of the fake-news coverage of the whole episode … CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted, “WH officials invited Trump’s social media allies to sit in the Rose Garden. But after the event was over, West Wing aides did nothing when those social media figures began to verbally abuse reporters who were trying to do their jobs. A good snapshot of how press is treated by WH.”

Following the news of Karem’s suspension, Gorka mocked him on Twitter …

In comments made to the Washington Post, Karem said, “I know what they say the issue is, but that’s not the real issue, or they could’ve talked to me at any point in time prior to now. As a matter of record, they never spoke to me once about it. This White House once again is arbitrarily enforcing rules with members of the press who take them to task by asking tough questions. That’s what this all about.”
