US District Judge Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee ordered the White House to restore Brian Karem’s press credential.

Last month Brian Karem, a CNN political analyst and Playboy correspondent, announced he was going to sue the Trump administration over the 30-day suspension of his press credential used for entry to the White House.

Karem claimed he was being suspended for a bad Rodney Dangerfield impersonation, but in reality he insulted guests of President Trump at a Rose Garden event on July 11.

Former Trump official Sebastian Gorka confronted a crazed Brian Karem at the Rose Garden presser in July and Karem responded by challenging Gorka to a fight.

Brian Karem was annoyed that conservatives had front row seats at the presser following the social media summit.

Sebastian Gorka walked over to Brian Karem and called him a punk.

“You’re a punk! You’re not a journalist! You’re a punk!” Gorka said inches away from Karem’s face.

Conservatives began chanting “Gorka! Gorka! Gorka!”

According to Gorka and another witness, Karem had sworn at President Trump in the Rose Garden.

Social media summit guest Ryan Fournier reported that Karem swearing at Trump provoked the confrontation, “When President Trump didn’t respond to Brian Karem yelling questions at him, he said profanities under his breath towards POTUS. He was called out and then said we were all “eager for demonic possession” – total nut job!”

Brian Karem has no business entering the White House after his latest outburst toward President Trump and his guests, but a corrupt Obama judge ruled in Karem’s favor.

Deadline reported:

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the White House to restore the hard pass of Playboy’s correspondent Brian Karem, whose credentials were suspended after an incident in July in which he got in argument with former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka following a Rose Garden ceremony.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras granted Karem’s motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

After White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham informed Karem she was suspending his hard pass for 30 days, calling his conduct “unacceptable and disruptive,” he sued, seeking a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction to reinstate his access to the White House grounds.

A hard pass, meant for full-time reporters at the White House allows reporters to come and go without having to apply for credentials each time they visit.
