On Friday Jon Decker from FOX News Radio accosted The Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich in the White House press room.
Decker reportedly started “screaming” and pointing at Lucian. Decker screamed loud enough so his liberal colleagues could hear him that Lucian (a gay conservative whose Jewish grandfather fled the Nazi regime in World War II) is a “Nazi” and The Gateway Pundit is a “white supremacist” website!
Lucian attended the briefings all week. On Friday it was just too much for Decker to bear. So he physically blocked him and grabbed him and then verbally assaulted him in front of the White House press corp.
Drama in WH press room between @lucianwintrich and Fox reporter I don’t know. Not helpful for anyone. Let’s stay calm everyone.

Decker verbally assaulted Lucian in front of his far left peers.
Fox News Radio John Decker just loudly told everyone in briefing room that Gateway Pundit is here “they hate blacks, Jews, Hispanics.” Wild

According to Politico the liberal reporters in the room cheered the assault. They shook his hand after the attack!
Alicia posted John Decker’s statement on the attack.
It is a complete lie.
“Earlier today I had a conversation with a representative from the online publication Gateway Pundit. The conversation was straightforward and direct,” Decker said in a prepared statement. “I also informed the full White House pool that this representative was present in the briefing room. At no time did I accost or assault this individual. More than a dozen witnesses will attest to this fact.”
When Decker said he “informed” the gaggle that Lucian was in the room what he forgot to say was that he shouted like an unhinged lunatic and accused Lucian and The Gateway Pundit of being Nazis.
Jon Decker is not an honest individual. This does not speak well for his years of reporting.
We are currently working on our response to this attack. We have been in contact with our lawyer. This behavior by a White House reporter is not acceptable. We will announce our plans this week.
