VIDEO=>CBS News Reporter Major Garrett Has On Air Tantrum Over Trump ‘Birther’ Press Event

CBS News reporter Major Garrett went ballistic following Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s press event Friday at the new Trump hotel in Washington, D.C. The event featured Medal of Honor recipients and other veterans endorsing Trump and was also billed as where Trump would make a major announcement on the President Barack Obama ‘birther’ controversy.

At the end of the half-hour event following the endorsements by the veterans, Trump made a brief statement that he believes Obama was born in the U.S. and then left the podium without taking questions from the press.

This caused the assembled reporters to go into a rage. One example is Major Garrett, who seethed with anger during his live stand-up report.

Garrett’s fellow reporters stood on chairs and screamed at Trump for five minutes following the press event.

In protest of Trump’s treatment of the press, Washington bureau chiefs voted to delete news video taken during Trump’s guided tour of the new Trump hotel.
