Sarah Huckabee Sanders has done an amazing job as Press Secretary and her accomplishments speak for themselves. But that does not stop the liberal mainstream press from twisting her words, wanting to put down her and overall treating her like garbage.
But nonetheless, she takes it all. But yet again she went toe to toe with a different reporter that now is alleging that Sanders would like to get into physical fights.
Small time CNN political analyst and analyst April Ryan got into it with Sanders over Robert Mueller and Rudy Guiliani. When Ryan did not get the answers she desired she continued to talk over Sanders even as she was trying to take different reporters questions.
When Sanders hit her spine with a sucker punch to the face Ryan just could not take it.
“After Ryan asked a combative query during Thursday’s press briefing, accusing her of being “blindsided” by comments Rudy Giuliani recently made on Fox News, Sanders told Ryan, “Well, with all due respect, you actually do not know a lot about me in terms of what I feel and what I don’t.”
Ryan misquoted Sanders while talking to CNN colleague Don Lemon on-air later, claiming the press secretary said, “You don’t understand mepersonally,” before announcing the term to be fighting words.

“For Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the presidential spokesperson, the mouthpiece for the President of the USA, to say, ‘You don’t understand mepersonally,’ in some quarters in this nation, that begins a physical fight,” Ryan said. “I was really shocked. It was road. I’ll go beyond that, it had been gutter”
Sanders didn’t immediately respond to request for comment. Sanders, who is from Hope, Ark., soon found herself catching Twitter shade from none other than former Democratic Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake — as first recorded by Daily Caller’s Amber Athey — who offered Baltimore native Ryan an “unsolicited comeback proposal.”
Rawlings-Blake recommended that the next time, Ryan should say, “I might not know you, but I sure know a LIE! And you are wearing it Sis, all over your face -oh wait is that a smudge in your liner.”
The “lining” remark is a callback into the contentious standup routine throughout the White House Correspondents’ Dinner when Michelle Wolf poked fun at the press secretary’s eye liner. Ryan quickly responded, “Lol stop. Bmore at the house I know you have my back. That you do not know me things begins fist fights. She wants to understand what she’s saying. I am not the one.”
Rawlings-Blake then reacted, “Already took off my earrings and Vaseline in my bag,” and also added a fist emoji, where the CNN political analyst fired back, “That is precisely what I am talking about! Take off that pretty ring to fornthe [sic] street battle. Lol.”
Ryan and Sanders have been involved in verbal altercations previously. Sanders recently slammed Ryan, who’s American Urban Radio’s White House correspondent, for asking if President Trump has thought about stepping down.
Sanders fired back, “No, and I feel that’s an absolutely ridiculous question” The United States Secret Service led Fox News to CNN and the White House when asked if they believe the latest comments a threat. CNN did not respond to request for comment”
This is not the only administration official she’s gotten into it with lately. Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer got into it with her too and Ryan took the chance to take their struggle into social media. The Hill reported the following about their struggle,
“Umm he can not he got fired remember by @Scaramucci and they never called him back,” Ryan said, referring to Anthony Scaramucci, who served as White House communications director for less than two weeks this past year.
Her comments came after Spicer chose to “Fox & Friends” earlier Saturday and weighed on one of Ryan’s controversial exchanges this week using press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Ryan had asked Sanders if President Trump planned on resigning and afterwards suggested the spokeswoman jeopardized a “physical struggle” with the reporter when responding to her questions about a past misstatement over Trump’s alleged affair with the adult-film celebrity.
“Why can not she just ask a straightforward question and ask for a straightforward answer?” Spicer said throughout his Fox News appearance, pointing into Ryan’s questioning at briefings.
“Unexpectedly, after April engaged in a lot of back-and-forths, she’s a CNN contract, as many other colleagues that have generated sort of YouTube-viral minutes, not because of the content of the reporting but because they became some sort of sensation from a back-and-forth,” Spicer said.
“What that tells me is they are more interested in personal popularity,” he explained. Comedian Kathy Griffin, famous for once posing for a picture that depicted her holding a mask intended to look like Trump’s severed head, had some choice words for Spicer over his remarks. She is famous after decades of hard work and because of the terrible way you and Sarah have treated her,” Griffin tweeted ”
This is precisely why the media briefings aren’t always recorded. Not because the government is scared of concealing anything but since instead of focusing on reporting real news reporters are looking for the fifteen minutes of fame by trying to go viral and saying outrageous and untrue things.
What they should be doing is focusing on doing their job and not perpetuating their particular tenable fame. That isn’t what coverage is all about and it’s a shame that this really is exactly what it’s become in the past couple of years. Notably since President Trump came into office.
