Democrats love to bash Donald Trump when he treats the media badly, but when it’s one of their own? Crickets.

Jillian Jorgensen, NY Daily News, reports that a member of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s NYPD security detail physically blocked her and other reporters from asking him a question as he exited City Hall:

The moment was caught on video:

Reporters had been trying to determine the fate of Joe Espito, the city’s emergency management commissioner, who may or may not have been fired over his response to the snowstorm that struck NYC in November:

It was a real clown show with Esposito getting fired by a deputy mayor but nobody acknowledging if the firing was legit or not:

Earlier in the day, de Blasio avoided questions at the gym:

It was “Veep” episode which the mayor made worse when he blocked the reporters:

And after all that, the mayor’s office announced that Esposito will leave his post, but only after someone new is identified. Oh, and Esposito will stay in the administration:

But there was one last totally pro-journalism aspect of this…

The announcement came too late for the morning papers:

So tell us again how it’s Trump that’s the enemy of the press?
