CNN political analyst April Ryan took a nasty cheap shot at outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a cheap shot late last week, claiming she “could not face the heat” of taking questions from journalists.
During a segment on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett,” Ryan and the panel began discussing news that Sanders is leaving her White House position at the end of the month.
But Ryan used most of her time to smear Sanders and make a slew of abhorrent comments about the top White House official.
Ryan said Sanders “did the right thing” by leaving the administration but stressed she should have done so “a long time ago” because she “suffers from lie-abetes” and her “tenure has been fraught with sex lies and videotape.”
“She suffers from lie-abetes and her tenure has been fraught with sex, lies, and videotape,” Ryan said. “From the moment she stepped into that position, there were lies from that podium from her mouth.”
“You could not trust her. I said it earlier. I’ll say it again. I’ve even tweeted it. She suffers from lie-abetes…[She’s] definitely changed the White House briefing room. I’ve been in that White House for 22 years, seen various press secretaries from Clinton until now,” Ryan continued.
She added: “This press — these last two, Sean and Sarah, the two S’s, S squared, have been the worst press secretaries in my tenure at the White House and I would say basically anywhere else and not only that people talk about McCarthyism. What those two did, particularly Sarah, if you can’t trust what comes out of that White House who can you trust?”
Ryan has a long history of attacking President Donald Trump and members of his administration.
Late last year, Ryan tweeted and spoke about a physical altercation with Sanders after a tense back-and-forth during the press briefing.
Later that day, Ryan appeared on CNN for an interview and found it comical to joke about taking off her earrings and putting on Vaseline.
Her comments, many would agree, implied a physical altercation with Sanders and others at the White House.
Prior to that, she shared an article on Twitter that argued the Trump administration is involved in a child sex-trafficking ring.
Ryan also bizarrely claimed over the summer that Sanders should for pay her to have a bodyguard for “stirring up” aggression against the media.
Ryan has proven time and time again that she will do and say anything for attention, which now includes claiming that Sanders is a “liar” who is afraid of taking questions from reporters.
