Trump Devastates Another ‘Loser’ CNN Reporter
Trump, responding to a question about CNN’s Jim Acosta’s press pass, said that reporters have a duty to respect the White House and the office of the presidency. The president quickly pivoted to April Ryan, who has a habit of yelling out of turn in press briefings and at press conferences.
“I mean, you talk about somebody that’s a loser,” Trump said. “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity and then she gets a pay raise — she gets a contract with, I think, CNN.”
“But she’s very nasty and she shouldn’t be. You’ve gotta treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect,” he concluded.
Acosta jumped to Ryan’s defense on Twitter, writing, “My friend @AprilDRyan is an incredible journalist and a wonderful person. If you got to know April as I know her, you would love her too.”
Ryan came under fire at Wednesday's post-midterm presser after she repeatedly interrupted other journalists.
