Former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka was caught on video shouting and getting into the face of journalists inside the Rose Garden on Thursday.

The confrontation took place after President Trump hosted a press conference announcing an executive order to tally non-citizens through the Commerce Department.

"You're a punk! You're not a journalist! You're a punk!" Gorka shouted at Brian Karem, a reporter for Playboy.

Guests who were invited to the social media summit cheered on Gorka; another person can be heard saying he should not be "attacking journalists like this."

A Secret Service agent then tried to keep the two groups separate.

Another reporter asked Gorka why he blocked him on Twitter.

CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta tweeted how the press were all in the back, with Trump's guests were in the front.
