Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who would have been cheered by the left as a strong successful working mom if she worked for anyone other than President Trump, resigned yesterday.
April Ryan, rather than wish her well or saying a few kind words, decided to take a cheap shot at Sarah Sanders on her way out.
Fox News reported that CNN political analyst and white House reporter April Ryan blasted outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, insisting she “could not face the heat” of taking questions from reporters.
The President announced earlier on Thursday that Sarah Sanders will be leaving his administration at the end of this month and expressed his hope that she will run for governor in her home state of Arkansas.
“After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas,” Trump tweeted.
“She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”
During a CNN panel discussion, April Ryan said Sarah Sanders “did the right thing” by leaving the administration but stressed she should have done so “a long time ago.”
“She suffers from lie-abetes and her tenure has been fraught with sex, lies, and videotape,” April Ryan told anchor Erin Burnett.
“From the moment she stepped into that position, there were lies from that podium from her mouth.”
The American Urban Radio Networks correspondent listed several examples of what she considered “lies” from Sarah Sanders, including when she shared an altered video of CNN reporter Jim Acosta refusing to hand over the microphone to a White House intern during a press conference. The video made it look like Acosta assaulted the woman.
April Ryan also cited Sarah Sanders’ admission to Special Counsel Mueller’s investigators that she didn’t give reporters an honest answer regarding the lack of confidence FBI agents had in fired director Comey. She also blasted Sarah Sanders for not holding a former press briefing in over 90 days.
“When Sarah Huckabee had no ground to stand on, she would make personal attacks,” April Ryan continued. “There were many times she would leave after 12 minutes of doing a briefing because she could not face the heat.”
