‘Girl, bye!’ April Ryan tries again to shame Sanders and gets rude awakening: ‘Sarah deserved better …’

American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan chose this week to respond to outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sander’s upcoming resignation in the most petty, self-aggrandizing way imaginable.

A day after word broke late Thursday that two White House reporters are planning a going-away party for Sanders next week, Ryan took to Instagram to pout and moan about … Iran.

Watch, via Instagram:

“I’m on a cross-country flight and very disturbed that in the midst of serious issues of possible strikes against Iran, that there was no briefing by Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” she said, referencing widely covered reports that President Donald Trump had almost pulled the trigger on a strike against Iran.

“In over 100+ days, the day that she should have had a briefing, she didn’t. Serious issues of life and death. Serious issues of war. And this administration chooses not to brief the American public? Shame.”

The White House stopped holding press briefings months earlier because of the demonstrably far-left media’s habitually abusive, disrespectful antics, all of which have allegedly been driven by various White House correspondents’ desire to boost their image and sell books.

Plus, it’s not as if Sanders hasn’t been “out there” in other ways.

“[S]he’s out there … all the time on camera, talking to the press,” former White House press secretary Sean Spicer pointed out during an appearance last week on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle.” “They don’t like it as much because it doesn’t work as well for their cable contracts and their YouTube views and things like that.”

And their Instagram views, it would appear …

“Everything comes to the White House from war to peace — and everything in between,” Ryan continued in her Instagram post Friday. “And there was potential war. And no one stood at that podium to explain to the American public what was going on. But we see it in a tweet. We deserve better.”

“Sarah Huckabee, have your party, I won’t be there. Girl, bye!” Ryan, a woman whom Sanders once graciously baked a pie for, concluded in her petulant Instagram rant.

As of Saturday morning, Ryan’s post had over 22,000 views but only 5,033 likes. Among the hundreds of comments left on her post were plenty ripping into her and her peers in the media for their dubious brand of “journalism.”

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

“Sarah deserved better than you all gave,” one Instagram user wrote. “As a matter of fact, all of us ‘American people’ deserve better than the crap you all put all as journalism. Thankful we have a President who speaks directly to us. He is so accessible and if you all didn’t hate him so much that it gets in your way you could get some news for us. Until then we will count on the President to tell us directly….”

“But the information is getting out to the public,” another user wrote. “It is just not being filtered by your biased filter. The public does not need your type of editorialized ‘journalism’ anymore. We’ve outgrown you. We are smarter than you thought which is why you are angry. You’ve lost the power to tell us what you think we should believe.”

They were right. Plenty of information about the cancelled strike slowly but surely began popping up all over the place late Thursday and Friday morning.

The president himself addressed the strike in a series of tweets:

In some fairness to Ryan, Sanders herself never addressed the issue. In fact, she hasn’t tweeted much since the day she announced her resignation last week, save for this:

Granted, it could be argued that Sanders has been busy preparing for her final day and presumably prepping her replacement. Those things are kind of important too.

As for Ryan’s rude “Girl, bye!” remark, some social media users have responded by telling her “bye”:
