The Nation is Fundraising Off of Their Reporter Getting  Tossed From Trump’s Press Conference

The Nation sent out a fundraising email to its readers after Sam Husseini, a contributor to the liberal publication, was forcibly escorted out of the joint press conference between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

It appeared that Husseini was going to stage some sort of protest during the press conference over the “Nuclear Weapons Ban,” but before Husseini got a chance to stage his protest and before either leader entered the room, security escorted him out of the event.

The Nation wasted no time trying to monetize the incident by sending out a fundraising email to their readers.

“The Nation’s journalism is grounded in out ferocious belief that a free and independent press is vital to our democracy. I hope you will consider making a donation to support that journalism today,” The Nation’s Editor Katrina vanden Heuvel wrote in an email.

The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple tweeted a screenshot of Heuvel’s fundraising email:
