LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
by Micah J. Fleck
These are strange times we live in. Post-Trump, tantrum throwing has seemingly become acceptable in grown men, and violence on all sides has become more common. Most recently, during a White House press briefing, a Fox News Radio host named Jon Decker went on a rampage against The Gateway Pundit WH correspondent Lucian Wintrich (who is openly gay), accusing his organization of bigotry and racism. Ultimately, according to others there including Wintrich himself, Decker then assaulted him.
As reported by We Are Change:
Lucian Wintrich, who is reportedly the first openly gay White House correspondent, was attacked by an unhinged Fox News Radio reporter while attending the administration’s press briefing on Friday.
The “Twinks for Trump” artist was at the White House to do his job on Friday, when Jon Decker of FOX News Radio assaulted him multiple times in front of his peers. According to Wintrich, the radio host pushed him in the break room before approaching him and assaulting him a second time in the press briefing room.
Decker also pointed Wintrich out and began shouting to everyone in briefing room that Gateway Pundit “hates blacks, Jews, Hispanics,” Buzzfeed’s White House correspondent Adrian Carrasquillo reported on Twitter.
Decker’s actions were denounced by other White House correspondents on Twitter, including Andrew Feinberg of Sputnik News. Shortly after the incident took place, Wintrich announced that he will be pressing charges against Decker over the assault.
