The White House press was left in stunned silence when journalist Mike Cernovich confronted them over why they refuse to cover violence against Trump supporters perpetrated by leftists and the Antifa.
Just as press secretary Sean Spicer walked away from the podium on Monday, Cernovich, the man who broke the story about Susan Rice spying for the Obama administration, began to ask the tough questions no one seemed willing to answer:
“Why will nobody here cover the violence against Trump supporters? And why won’t you demand that leaders of the Democrats disavow the violence of Antifa the way you demanded Trump disavow the violence from his supporters? This is being completely covered up. You have no answer.”
As he was speaking, members of the national press were shouting back, “Who the hell are you?”
“Are you a journalist?” asked American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who has said she feels "under attack" by the Trump administration.
Cernovich acknowledged in the affirmative and said he was also a documentary filmmaker.
“I want to know why nobody will demand that the Democrats disavow Antifa violence,” Cernovich continued, “terrorism against women, happening in America.”
A male reporter interrupted him with this defense: “You realize, of course, that this is a Republican president. We will ask Democrats…” As if they ever asked community organizer Barack Obama to disavow Black Lives Matter violence.
But Cernovich jumped in:
“Oh, where? Where’s the interview of you demanding that Bernie Sanders disavow Antifa?”
“You’re not making these demands the way you did with Trump,” Cernovich said to angry stares.
