White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired journalists who shouted questions at the end of her Friday press briefing by declaring she did not call for “activists” until she walked off the podium.
McEnany took questions from several reporters, but Playboy’s Brian Karem repeatedly yelled at her during the briefing, asking when President Trump will admit he lost the election.

Do you understand the definition of sedition? Do you understand that he lost? Shouted Karem as McEnany unpacked. Another reporter also appeared to be shouting a question and got the press secretary to return to the microphone.
“I’m not an activist,” a reporter was heard saying as McEnany walked out.
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins confirmed after the briefing that she was the reporter who annoyed the press secretary. “She called me ‘an activist,'” Collins tweeted. “It’s understandable why someone who hasn’t done their job – taking questions from journalists – for weeks would confuse another who does theirs with activism.”
Karem, who has developed a reputation for shouting at members of the Trump administration whenever possible, is currently sharing his own footage on Twitter.
Karem has also posted a video that he took of himself and shouted at McEnany earlier in the briefing.
“When you admit you lost?” Shouted Karem in the video.

Earlier this year, Trump called Karem a “loud” during a coronavirus press conference in Rose Garden.
“I told them when they put this guy here, it’s nothing but trouble,” Trump said at the time about Karem. “He’s a showboat. If you keep talking, I’ll go, and you can have it out with the rest of these people. If you keep talking, I will travel, and you can have it out with them. “
