WATCH: April Ryan unleashes holy hell on CNN regular Steve Cortes for not backing CNN reporter booted by Trump

Published

on

On Thursday, White House correspondent April Ryan hammered President Donald Trump’s former campaign official Steve Cortes after he mocked the freedom of the press.

CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins was booted from a public White House event after she asked President Trump questions he did not like on Wednesday.

Cortes started off by saying that banning Collins from the event was wrong, but placed the blame on the media.

“The White House believes and I think correctly so, that generally the media is so antagonistic towards the White House, and literally so biased,” Cortes said.

Ryan called it all “foolishness.”

“I’m laughing to keep from crying because you believe this foolishness,” Ryan said. “This president came out saying we are the enemy of the people. We did nothing to him. From the moment he was elected president, even before that, when he thought he was going to be president. He did not want us in the White House. So the antagonism started with this administration. There is not a bias.”

“April, that’s ridiculous,” Cortes responded.

“No, it’s not ridiculous. This is what the president is doing. We have a right to ask. We have a right to ask. She is a credentialed member of the press in the pool. And I’m going to say this to you,when you start oppressing and censoring the press, it starts a dictatorship,” Ryan said.

Franken, who has served as Deputy for Military Operations for AFRICOM, Director of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, and Chief of Legislative Affairs for the Department of the Navy, hails from Sioux Center, a town in the deeply conservative northwest part of the state.

Ernst, who first gained national attention for her 2014 campaign ad about castrating hogs, is a reliable vote for President Donald Trump in the Senate, and the president's poor approval ratings in Iowa have left Democrats hopeful that they can defeat her.

"They had this American dream," sobbed Rosa Ramirez after images of her drowned son and granddaughter, discovered face-down on the banks of the Rio Grande between Mexico and the United States, shocked the world on Wednesday.

The poignant pictures of Oscar Alberto Martinez and his toddler daughter Valeria -- not yet two years old -- has sparked outrage back home in El Salvador, where around 200 migrants like them leave for the United States daily, preparing to take similar risks.

"The pain has been immense. I still can't believe that my boy and my little granddaughter are dead, they only wanted to get to the United States.... they had this American dream -- to achieve a better life," Oscar's mother told AFP.

Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said the plan involved active and retired army officers and was to have been executed between Sunday and Monday this past weekend.

"We were in all the meetings to plan the coup d'Etat. We were in all the conferences," Rodriguez said, suggesting that government informers had infiltrated the alleged plotters during planning meetings.
