April Ryan’s unhinged hatred for Sarah Sanders goes way, WAY back.
Anyway, this woman has clearly only gotten worse since she literally threw a fit about whether or not Sarah Sanders baked a pie herself.
And yes, she’s throwing yet another fit. (surprise, surprise!)
According to Fox News:
CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.
In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.
Fair enough… but let me say one thing. Any FBI agent with a SPINE would have realized that what was happening was wrong.
I have no doubt of that.
April Ryan? Well. She’s latching on to this like a freaking bear trap:
"Not only does she not have credibility, she lied. She out and out lied…the American people can’t trust her," says @AprilDRyan of Press Sec. Sarah Sanders.
"She should be let go. She should be fired, end of story…it’s fire me Thursday or fire me Good Friday. She needs to go." pic.twitter.com/M0whZiHg1l

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”
Who’s gonna tell April that ANYONE on CNN harping on “credibility” isn’t the best look right about now?
“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”
For you to defend yourself and the rest of your ilk like this in the face of everything we’ve learned is truly delusional.
You might want to sit this one out for a bit.
As for Sarah? She’s addressed the issue:
Sanders appeared on “Hannity” on Thursday night and reiterated that she shouldn’t have used the word “countless,” but insisted it was “not untrue” that “a number of current and former FBI agents agreed with the president” about Comey, whom she called a “disgraced leaker.”
And she’s right.
