WATCH: OAN Reporter Banished By WHCA Returns as Guest and Trump Calls on Her!

OAN Reporter Chanel Rion, who was banished by the White House Correspondent’s Association for allegedly violating “social distancing” rules appeared at Thursday’s coronavirus task force meeting as a special guest to Stephanie Grisham.

Not only was Rion back, but President Trump called on her and took her question.

Per Dailymail, ‘I spoke with Stephanie Grisham this morning,’ Rion said. ‘And she invited me again to attend the briefing today as her guest standing in the back and I will be in the briefing room today if there’s not physical complications with that.’

Jennifer Franco of OAN tweeted:

OANN Chief White House Correspondent @ChanelRion returns to the briefing room for today’s coronavirus press briefing, after @whca revoked seating privileges citing a violation of social distancing guidelines.

Some of the establishment reporters were not very happy with Rion’s presence.

Shira Stein of the Washington Post wrote “…the WHCA took @OANN out of the pool and their reporter is still there violating their safety policies.”

Debra Saunders of Las Vegas Review wrote “If @ChanelRion is in the briefing room as a guest of @PressSec, she should be sitting in the side row with staff and guests.”
