Incoming White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was roughed up by North Korean security guards on Sunday during a scuffle between Kim Jong Un’s security and members of the American press.

When American media attempted to follow President Donald Trump and Kim into “Freedom House” at the Demilitarized Zone, North Korean security guards physically blocked them from entering, according to the Associated Press.

Grisham was injured in the melee, receiving bruises from the North Korean guards, when she fought against the guards to allow American media to properly position themselves to cover the historic meeting between Trump and Kim.

The Secret Service eventually intervened to deescalate the tense situation, the AP reported, and the American media were able to capture the historic moment.

Jim Acosta, CNN’ senior White House correspondent, reported the incident was ” an all out brawl.”

Other reporters corroborated the incident.

It was not immediately clear if Grisham received medical attention or if North Korean guards injured anyone else.

Trump made history Sunday by becoming the first American commander in chief to visit North Korea, albeit for approximately just one minute.

After meeting with Kim for nearly one hour in Freedom House, Trump announced North Korea had agreed to resume denuclearization negotiations.

      …one of these Jim Acosta is going to be bloodied somewhere either in the US or elsewhere, and reports (not from CNN will ) will say he just slipped into a dark alley while hunting for a free-frill with a bitch…

    After a few generations of culture in NK I don’t blame the guards. They were doing as they were trained to do. The secret service wouldn’t let just anyone into a meeting, no matter how casual,at home.

    So Trump and Kim Jong Un has agreed to resume to the denuclearization talks. Well, well, well. And I read remarks all day that it was just a Trump photo op. Was those people dumb or what? He knows these people much better than the ones that have lived and worked their whole adult life in Washington DC. He knew meeting Kim in NK and shaking his hands would mean a lot more to him than some big summit planned weeks and months in advance.

    “Brawl?” What stupid bullshit. If that was a brawl, I’m Hulk Hogan.

    The camera was swinging all over. I have no idea what violence occurred where we couldn’t see. Anyway, if some reporter did get violently pushed back by security guys, isn’t that a good thing? Security guys should ordinarily have a monopoly on force, short of something obviously evil like a massacre. If you don’t like it, call an ambassador or something.

    Acosta has to make news somehow, real or improvised! The NK guards were just doing their job.
    People need to realize Trump does nothing without thinking it through. He won’t be blindsided. He plans very carefully and treads softly. He is someone the reporters and others have never encountered before. He is God’s chosen one.

    Why is it that Americans traveling into other countries and cultures don’t understand that the rights we enjoy traveling in the 50 United States don’t apply to the Foreign Country that we are visiting? …. The North Korean guards have the every right to stop anyone crossing into their space…. Period …
