Obama Orders Reporter to Stop Filming Him at Lunch Outing–Reporter Obeys

Time reporter Zeke Miller was at a Teaism cafe near the White House Wednesday around noon when President Barack Obama came in for a surprise visit.

Miller started broadcasting Obama’s visit on Periscope with his smartphone.

A peeved Obama ordered Miller to stop filming–and Miller obeyed.


Obama was visiting Teaism with Teacher of the Year Shanna Peeples after a Rose Garden ceremony.

Miller was meeting at Teaism with a number of other White House reporters when Obama strolled in. Apparently not one of them had the courage to stand up to Obama for the right of their reporter Miller to film the president in public. And apparently none of them took the opportunity to ask Obama any questions.

Bloomberg’s Margaret talev praised Obama for being a ‘good sport’


This is why they are called Obama’s lapdogs.

Update: The Obama administration posted a video to Facebook of President Obama’s walking trip to Teaism with Shanna Peeples.

The 2:35 video which covered the trip from its start inside the White House through Obama’s return excluded footage of Obama ordering Zeke Miller to stop filming him.
