Trump's social media summit almost turned into a fist fight
Donald Trump's social media summit almost descended into a brawl, when his fan and ex-aide Sebastian Gorka and hater/ critic Brian Karem (Playboy, CNN) decided to argue hard after Trump's remarks at the conference.
Secret Service was kind of busy when they almost had to separate two men that were having a shouting match during Social Media Summit organized by President Donald Trump. Luckily ("for Sebastian or Brian?") it ended only with a war of words, and not some fistfight.
It all started when Brian Karem sarcastically said to 100 conservative and right-wing social media stars invited by Trump that they are "a group of people that are eager for demonic possession."
These sarcastic words of Trump-critic were overheard by Trump's ex-aide and fan Sebastian Gorka, that wanted to have some long discussion with Brian Karem over Karem's words. “You are a journalist, right?” - shouted Gorka to Karem across the lawn.
Karem responded to that: "Come on over here and talk to me, brother. We can go outside and have a long conversation.”
However, Gorka didn't believe in Karem's good intentions and that he really wanted to "discuss" things over and simply accused Karem of threatening him. "You’re threatening me now in the White House. You’re threatening me in the Rose Garden," he shouted at Karem.
After saying a few other harsh words to Karem, security intervened and separated the two men that "had a lot to say" to each other.
In his remarks at Social Media Summit, Trump expressed his disappointment with big tech companies, that don't give a fair exposure to the conservative and right-wing people. "Big tech must not censor the voices of the American people,” he said in the White House East Room.
After Trump's statements, Gorka said that he blocks a lot of journalists on his Twitter, mostly because they are "asshats."
