White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on CNN White House correspondent April Ryan on Tuesday, slamming the left-leaning reporter over her criticism of President Trump’s comments that Congressional Democrats acted “Un-American” during his State of the Union address.
The Press Secretary was fielding questions from her reporters during her daily briefing when Ryan pressed her to weigh-in on Trump’s comments in Ohio, where he said liberal legislators acted like they “don’t love our country very much” during his annual speech to Congress.
“What is so un-American about this, this year, after this has been going on for all of these years?” asked Ryan.
“I think its un-American not to be excited about the fact that more people in this country have jobs than they did before, the fact that more people in this country have higher wages than they did before, the fact that the economy is booming like it wasn’t before, the fact that ISIS is being crushed like it wasn’t before,” fired-back Sanders.
“These are things that I don’t care what party you are from, these are things that every American should be excited about and be able to celebrate,” she added.

SARAH SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders UNLOADS on CNN’s April Ryan Over ‘Sexual Innuendo’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t mince words during her daily briefing on Tuesday, blasting CNN correspondent April Ryan for accusing the President of making “sexual innuendos” regarding New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Sanders was speaking with reporters when Ryan pressed the Secretary on the President’s recent tweet, saying the liberal legislator “would do anything” for campaign contributions.
“Is Gillibrand owed an apology for the misunderstanding of the President’s tweet this morning, because many –including the Senator- think it’s about sexual innuendos,” said the CNN journalist.
“I think only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way,” fired-back Sanders.
“He’s obviously talking about political partisan games that people often play and the broken system that he’s talked about repeatedly,” she added. “This isn’t new. This isn’t a new sentiment. This isn’t new terminology. He’s used it several times before referencing men of both parties, in fact.”
“If you look back on the comments he’s made, it was very clear what his reference was,” said the Press Secretary.
