Anti-Trump NYT Reporter Glenn Thrush Suspended Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Another day, another enemy of Donald Trump is hoisted by their own petard. A top White House reporter for the New York Times and vocal critic of President Trump, Glenn Thrush, has been suspended from duty amid claims of sexual misconduct.

Several young women have accused the married journalist, 50, of unwanted sexual harassment according to Vox journalist Laura McGann – who Thrush says harassed her five years ago when he was working for Politico. McGann writes:

Three young women I interviewed, including the young woman who met Thrush in June, described to me a range of similar experiences, from unwanted groping and kissing to wet kisses out of nowhere to hazy sexual encounters that played out under the influence of alcohol. Each woman described feeling differently about these experiences: scared, violated, ashamed, weirded out. I was — and am — angry.

When Thrush was confronted via text message the day after he allegedly harassed one woman, he was “apologetic but defensive,” stating “I got drunk because I got some shitty health news. And I am acutely aware of the hurdles that young women face in this business and have spent the better part of 20 years advocating for women journalists.”

Vox’s McGann then recounts her own experience with Thrush:

On that night five years ago, I joined Thrush and a handful of other reporters for a few rounds at the Continental, a Politico hangout in Rosslyn, Virginia. At first, nothing seemed strange, until the crowd had dwindled down to Thrush, me, and one other female colleague.

Thrush tossed a $20 bill at her and told her to take a cab and leave us, “the grown-ups,” alone. He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in. I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out.Laura McGann

What makes this particularly ironic is that Thrush has repeatedly held himself out as an “advocate for women journalists,” one victim stated.

“That’s how he presented himself to me. He tried to make himself seem like an ally and a mentor. Kind of ironic now.”

Book deal and future with MSNBC

Thrush’s chronicles of the Trump administration have resulted in a book deal with NYT writing partner Maggie Haberman. No word from publisher Random House on the status of said deal, however political journalist Mark Halperin lost his own book deal following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Thrush ironically said of Halperin at the time “Young people who come into a newsroom deserve to be taught our trade, given our support and enlisted in our calling — not betrayed by little men who believe they are bigger than the mission.”

Thrush also signed a deal earlier in the year to become a contributor to MSNBC after his coverage of the Trump White House became so notable that he was featured in several “Saturday Night Live” sketches. A spokesperson for MSNBC said Monday that the network will wait for the outcome of the Times’ investigation into Thrush before making a decision on his contract, and that he “currently has no scheduled appearances” on the network.

Thrush is a hack

Thrush was thrust into the 2016 Wikileaks election controversy when it emerged that he had sent Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta part of an article he was writing for Politico.

Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to Podesta, adding “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I f****d up anything.”

Thrush’s defense was that he was simply fact checking a portion of a story pertaining to Podesta – however one wonders why he would be doing so “because I have become a hack.”

Thrush apology

Via CNN: 

In an email to CNN, Thrush said of the allegations against him:

“I apologize to any woman who felt uncomfortable in my presence, and for any situation where I behaved inappropriately. Any behavior that makes a woman feel disrespected or uncomfortable is unacceptable.

“My recollection of my interactions with Laura differs greatly from hers — the encounter was consensual, brief, and ended by me. She was an editor above me at the time and I did not disparage her to colleagues at POLITICO as she claims. The assertion that I would rate women based on their appearance is also false.

“I have never offered mentorship or reporting advice to anyone, man or woman, with an expectation of anything in return. To assert otherwise is false.

“The June incident related in the story was a life-changing event. The woman involved was upset by my actions and for that I am deeply sorry.

Over the past several years, I have responded to a succession of personal and health crises by drinking heavily. During that period, I have done things that I am ashamed of, actions that have brought great hurt to my family and friends.

“I have not taken a drink since June 15, 2017, have resumed counseling and will soon begin out-patient treatment for alcoholism. I am working hard to repair the damage I have done.”

There you have it – Thrush is going with “I was drunk because of a health crisis, sorry”

This is getting kind of weirding me out ...

Clinton and the MSM all started of with Trump "talking about pussy grabbing" ...

It became such an issue globally that the whole world was woken up.

Now everybody who has been actually pussy grabbing is getting exposed.

Macho lefty guys are so amusing, the way they want to be 'old school' and all, while fiercely upholding the party line no matter how absurd.

They really try too hard with the drinking, womanizing and cussing, and of course the old school porkpie hat..

They may be total libfags, but they're definitely NOT soy boys..

Thrush is a hardcore Liberal prick who, like all Liberal pricks, believes he is above normal mortals and can therefore can tell others what to do while doing all the nasty shit he wants.

Surprised he was just a low-life lying reporter instead of a low-life Hollywood actor.

It is great that he is learning the lesson that what goes around always comes back around.

The good news is that like many others, his days of screaming about how bad Trump is are over - forever.

RIP Thrush!

Agent Pineapple Juice Says , DONT FUCK WITH THE NSA.

With the Obama-Clinton Democratic Party openly calling for the overthrow of President Trump, who have joined by Hollywood, likewise, calling for Trump’s overthrow, and America’s elite media trying to take Trump out too, this report continues, all of them are in gross violation of America’s sedition and treason laws which strictly forbid such actions—and which the NSA has begun retaliating against.

As explained to President Putin by King Salman bin Abdulaziz last month during their historic meeting, this report explains, the NSA was given a secret warrant 3 months ago by President Trump authorizing them to search for and find potential criminal sexual offences committed against women and/or children by political persons, Hollywood celebrities and media elites—and when such criminal sexual crimes were discovered, the NSA was to then contact the victims to notify them that the information could become public knowledge in any future prosecutions.


President Trump what are the best things in life?
Crush Your enemies , see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of the women.

Now who the Fuck is next!!!!

Do those strategies ever work?  Have I been missing out?

In the future, you will need to get a signed agreement, BEFORE you can even ask a female on a date.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

How about just not masturbate in front of them, walk out of the shower naked in front of them, or kiss them and grope them until maybe after the first date?


Jeebus there are some real freaks out there lol.

These guys are are alcoholics who are "for women" until they get loaded at night and put on "the Moves."

Hahhahahha, what a bunch of pussies.

Nothing that the Redpill hasn't been telling us for years.  Liberal and progressive white knight cucks and weaklings can't attract a woman like a real man, so they hang around leftist sloots and thots hoping to get a piece.  When they get friendzoned they try and take it by force.  Pathetic.  Read the sidebar.

And apparently use subtle and not so subtle power plays that they can help your career if you let them fuck you lol.


Pathetic.  Seriously pathetic.

Typical libtard, do any of them have actual morals or are they all pretenders? Of course nothing happens to him except some time off. If it was someone from FOX news or some other conservative organization it would be a full time story on all major networks.

The only surprise here is that he didn't try to grab Anderson Cooper's wang.   But, maybe he did.

 "He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in. I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out." could be an honest misunderstanding, after all he is a liberal.  perhaps he didn't INTEND to harass....

¨Over the past several years, I have responded to a succession of personal and health crises by drinking heavily. During that period, ¨


So, he is an alcoholic.  Perhaps this explains, in part, the shoddy journalism of the New York Times.  How long has the New York Times been employing drunks to report the news, and how many more alcoholics are on the staff of the Times?  This is the real story here.

I wonder how the American people feel about being given morality lectures from alcoholics.  I guess the modern left has no objection to being told what to believe by drunks.  These people have no shame.
