(Worthy News) - The White House defended banning a CNN correspondent from covering an open press event in the Rose Garden on Wednesday, pointing to the reporter’s alleged behavior when she asked President Trump questions in the Oval Office earlier in the day.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins claims that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Bill Shine, deputy chief of staff for communications, told her Wednesday that she was no longer invited to attend a press event with Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, after she asked Trump questions about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump’s former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen. Trump did not answer her questions.

“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so. Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event, but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend,” Sanders said in a statement.

  1. Having a press pass doesn't give you the freedom to be disruptive, ask unrelated questions or be disrespectful. She should be banned for his entire presidency and any other "reporter" who does the same thing!
