April Ryan Sends Sarah Huckabee Sanders A Sincerest Farewell As The Former Press Secretary Departs From The White House
Same, sis. Same.
While many are relieved at the departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, we think it’s safe to say that White House Correspondent and CNN Political Analyst April Ryan is at the top of that list.
Aboard an international flight, Ryan took to her Instagram page to address how “disturbed” she was by the administration’s failure to hold a press briefing following elevated tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

We Deserve Better: It has been 100+ days since we’ve had a White House press briefing. It’s unacceptable and the American people deserve better. Our nation faced potential war and Sarah Sanders didn’t prepare any of us. Shameful! #WhiteHouse #FreedomOfThePress #SarahSanders
“Serious issues of life and death, serious issues of war, and this administration chooses not to brief the American public. Shame,” Ryan said in the video posted on Friday.
“There was potential war, and no one stood at that podium to explain to the American public what was going on. And we see it in a tweet. We deserve better," the veteran journalist continued. "Sarah Huckabee, you can have your party. I won’t be there. Girl, bye.”
This is not the first time that Huckabee Sanders and Ryan have bumped heads. According to HuffPost, back in April, the press secretary manipulated Ryan’s words, claiming that the political analyst called for her to be “decapitated” after Ryan demanded the administration member be fired for lying.
Following Huckabee Sanders’ resignation announcement on June 13, Ryan appeared on CNN’s OutFront With Erin Burnett and dug her heels into the press secretary.
“She should have done the right thing a long time ago,” Ryan said. “The reason why I say that is because she suffers from ‘lie-abetes’. And her tenure has been fraught with sex, lies and videotape,” she added, referencing the president’s lewd comments about sexually harassing women.
The problematic press secretary will be stepping down at the end of the month, The New York Times reports.
