CNN’s April Ryan went berserk on Thursday night and shouted at least four times that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be fired.
During a segment on “OutFront with Erin Burnett,” the panel began discussing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 400+ page Russia report and how the conclusion of his investigation didn’t call for any charges to be brought against President Donald Trump.
When it was noted that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election — CNN flipped the script and found one sentence in the Mueller report against Sanders.
Buried deep in report, Mueller noted that Sanders told reporters during a briefing last year that several FBI agents told her that they were glad when Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.
Sanders told Mueller’s team that she made a mistake and that her comment was meant more generally, not that specific agents told her that.
Ryan said Sanders should be fired over this one mistake.
“In the Mueller report, she admitted she lied from that podium to the American people,” Burnett told her panel.
“Not only does she not have credibility, but she also lied. The American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece,” Ryan began.
“Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired, end of the story. It’s fire me Thursday or fire me Good Friday. She needs to go,” she added.
After Burnett said Trump would likely not fire his press secretary, Ryan essentially demanded that Sanders be removed.
“You never know. The president doesn’t want the take the fall, so he may make her take the fall,” Ryan shouted.
“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room, and so has Sean [Spicer.] The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan added.
She continued, “She says the press is fake when she is faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake. We’ve had colleagues who have moved from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called fake and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”
By that logic, should Ryan and other media figures all be fired for making one mistake?
If Sanders should be fired for not relaying something 100% accurately, shouldn’t every single media figure who has smeared, slandered, and attacked Trump with false reports also be fired?
The media pushed the fake Russia collusion theories for two years, which have now been proved to be a total lie.
If that’s how they want to play this game, Ryan and many of her colleagues in the media should also be fired for spreading false and not completely accurate information.
