Sarah Sanders Shuts Down April Ryan’s Screaming During Press Briefing



White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down CNN reporter April Ryan in a shouting match at a press briefing after she continuously interrupted her. The confrontation was over the National Anthem controversy. Sarah was answering questions over President Trump’s decision to disinvite the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House.

“The President doesn’t think this is an issue simply about free speech,” she said, “he thinks it’s about respecting the men and women of our military, it’s about respecting our National Anthem, and it’s about standing out of pride for that.” Yes, it is, but Ryan wasn’t about to shut up. She was also mocked for spreading fake news, claiming that President Trump was booed by the crowd at the Celebration for America event, when instead it was a heckler that was booed.

“And one of the greatest equalizers we can have is to provide a level playing field and the President has worked increasingly hard to make sure that that happens,” Sanders said later when asked about what Trump has done about racial disparity in the U.S. That’s when Ryan decided to try and steal the spotlight by yelling unsolicited questions at Sanders. “Is the President aware of that, Sarah?” At that point, Sarah tried to go to another reporter, but April Ryan kept shouting interruptions and demanded that her questions be answered. It was beyond rude.

“Is the President aware that this is about police-involved shootings and not about disrespecting the flag?” Ryan asked. “Is the President aware of that, Sarah?” Again, Sanders tried to take a different question from another reporter, but Ryan kept on screaming and interrupting. “There’s an underlying issue and he keeps going on about disrespect of the flag and soldiers,” Ryan said, “there are black and brown soldiers that fight in the military as well who feel that taking a knee, bringing attention to police-involved shootings is something that this White House should deal with.” Why does this woman still have a press pass?

“Is the President aware that taking the knee is about police-involved shootings?” Ryan demanded. “The President has made his position crystal clear, and that is that,” Sanders responded before being interrupted by Ryan again. “I let you rudely interrupt me and your colleague, I’m gonna ask that you allow me to finish my answer. I would be happy to answer if you would stop talking long enough to let me do that.”

“The President has made his position crystal clear on this topic,” Sanders repeated, “he feels strongly that standing for our National Anthem is something that we should do, something that matters to what makes our country special and unique and what sets us apart. He’s not going to waiver on that, he’s not going to apologize for it, and frankly, more than 70 percent of Americans agree with him on that matter.” Yes, they do… and I’m one of them. “If you go back to what the original intent was,” Sarah continued, “this has been made a political argument, of which the President is not gonna back down from and he’s been clear on it.”

“But people are standing up,” Ryan shouted, “so will he deal with the issue of police-involved shootings. And the NFL is now telling people they have to stand,” she kept on. “Will the President deal with the issue of police-involved shootings?” “I’m gonna deal with the issue of addressing your colleague’s question,” Sanders said, moving on to another question from a different reporter.

President Trump announced this week that he was canceling a visit at the White House with the Super Bowl winning Philadelphia Eagles and blamed players who were unwilling to stand for the National Anthem for it. Some noted that no Eagles player had knelt during the National Anthem during the entire season before they won their championship. But that’s not the point here. It’s an individual matter and the entire team disrespected the President of the United States here. President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country.

Frankly, the whole heated exchange was one of the rudest I’ve ever seen between a reporter and a press secretary. Ryan should have her credentials revoked over this. Instead, she has the likes of Don Lemon cheering her on. Ryan is not even close to being a true journalist and it shows.

    April Ryan is a loudmouth racist btch. I wish they would ban her from daily briefings. I know Sarah would like to smack her in the mouth lots of times, but she’s too much a lady. April, it is not about police brutality on blacks. They never took a knee when obama was in office. I wish the N F L would fire every last one that kneels. It’s all political.
