Maybe the President should invite more journalists who want to pick a fight with him to the White House, because this afternoon, as he was discussing his administration’s new shift in immigration policy, President Obama went after a Daily Caller journalist who had interrupted him. And he showed a bit of fight in him that has been rarely seen the past few years. Here was the President’s response:

In the meantime, the Daily Caller’s Twitter profile tweeted pride and support for Munro’s actions:
