April Ryan can’t get over it! Implies Sarah Sanders wanted to ‘physically fight’ during heated presser

April Ryan’s outspokenness as an anti-Trump zealot serves as a frequent magnet for hyped up controversy, but the Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent is reaching new levels with an absurd assertion made Thursday night on CNN.

Appearing in the friendly confines of Don Lemon’s show, Ryan suggested that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders wants to physically fight her.

Speaking about a little brouhaha earlier in the day at the White House press briefing, when Sanders told the Trump-hating reporter that she does not know her after Ryan tried to put words in Sanders’ mouth, Ryan claimed that was “gutter” talk intended to provoke a fight.

Ryan would go on to ignite a heated exchange with former Trump spox Jason Miller when she referred to the briefing, exclaiming, “She attacked me!

But, Ryan wasn’t done and doubled-down when she hit Lemon’s set.

“If she’s upset about [my question] then that’s fine, I understand people in the White House are very upset,” Ryan told Lemon. “But what I will say to you is that…for her to say, ‘you don’t know me,’ in certain quarters in this nation that starts a physical fight.”

“I was very shocked, it was street. I will even go beyond that — it was gutter,” she then said. “She can be mad at what I say right now: tough.”

Here’s a little news flash for the reporter, Sanders is known for her toughness, which comes in handy dealing with a rabid press corps out to destroy the president , and IF there was to be an actual fight, few would hesitate to put their money on Sanders over a whiny reporter.

Ryan got into a Twitter exchange with former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who infamously said the city “gave those who wished to destroy space” during the 2015 riots.

An apparent pal, Rawlings-Blake chimed in to let Ryan know she has her back — the racial overtones heavy as smokey eye makeup. Ryan countered to suggest taking off rings for the “street fight.”

When hit with the expected backlash over that remark, Ryan played the victim card, taking to social media to say it was a “joke to take the temperature down,” adding in a second tweet, “I believe in non-violence.”

The reporter also talked about “death threats” while referencing “their words,” which would seem to be a reference to the White House.

As for the backlash, here’s a quick sampling from Twitter, though we could go on all day with the responses to a member of the White House press corps, which a social media user aptly described as “a national embarrassment.”
