HYPOCRISY: Democrat Senator attacks Journalists over Green New Deal questions

When the president fought back against horribly one-sided Fake News, didn’t you say “attacks on free press” were “unacceptable”?

Come on now, Bobby.

Democratic Senator of NJ, Bob Menendez, scolded a reporter on Capitol Hill when asked to comment on the Green New Deal.

Henry Rodgers, the Daily Caller’s Capitol Hill reporter, approached the senator at a subway station and asked him if he supported Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s legislative proposal.

Menendez avoided the question and then asked where Rodgers worked. Rodgers said that when he told Menendez he worked for the Daily Caller, the Democrat responded by saying he would not answer any questions. An intern who was with Rodgers asked a follow-up question, and tensions apparently rose.

The reporter followed the tweet with an audio clip from their back-and-forth.

“I am wondering why you won’t answer questions on the Green New Deal?” Rodgers asked.

“I won’t answer questions to the Daily Caller, period! You’re trash,” Menendez responded.

“Why do you think we’re trash, sir?” the reporter followed.

Menendez was criticized on social media for threatening to call the police on the reporter.

Numerous members of Menendez’s office, including his communications director, Tricia Enright, defended the senator and trashed what one described as “gotcha journalism.”

He is also a huge advocate for the message of liberty. The moment he was awakened was when he witnessed the 2012 Republican debate, where libertarian legend Ron Paul was the only one with a real difference in opinion. The question was about a national ID card. Everyone thought it was a good idea, until it got to Ron Paul. “NO! That’s preposterous. That is NOT what freedom is all about.” said Paul. This was a huge wake up call, and ever since, Jack has been a staunch advocate for liberty and a moving force against the global elite! Follow me on twitter - @LibertyDragon1
