Glenn Thrush, New York Times Sexual Deviant, Ousted From White House Press Job
It was just announced that Glenn Thrush, the sexual deviant who writes for Carlos Slim’s New York Times blog, will no longer be covering the daily press briefings with Sarah Sanders. But get this: he will still be working at the New York Times.

A month ago, VOX wrote a lengthy report detailing the mounting claims of sexual harassment against correspondent Thrush; many of the reports and claims discuss the 50-year-old Thrush luring women as young as 23 into alcohol-induced “mentorships” that end with the young women in terrified and in tears.
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.
Details of their stories suggest a pattern. All of the women were in their 20s at the time. They were relatively early in their careers compared to Thrush, who was the kind of seasoned journalist who would be good to know. At an event with alcohol, he made advances. Afterward, they (as I did) thought it best to stay on good terms with Thrush, whatever their feelings.
An hour ago, the New York Times announced that Thrush would be reassigned within the organization. In a truly bizarre statement, Baquet admitted to Thrush’s outrageous and violent behavior but said that it is STILL not worthy of termination: “While we believe that Glenn has acted offensively, we have decided that he does not deserve to be fired.”
“We understand that our colleagues and the public at large are grappling with what constitutes sexually offensive behavior in the workplace and what consequences are appropriate,” Mr. Baquet added. “Each case has to be evaluated based on individual circumstances. We believe this is an appropriate response to Glenn’s situation.”
The NYT piece ends with an odd and tasteless list of Thrush’s “accomplishments” including Bobby Moynihan portraying him on “Saturday Night Live” because that’s every MSM reporter’s real goal.
