During a segment with CNN host Erin Burnett, contributor April Ryan delivered a righteous rant aimed at Donald Trump for sharing a video from Fox Business News that appeared to show House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- CA) slurring.
According to Ryan, who has battled with the White Hosue — including spokesperson Sarah Sanders — Trump and his White House are engaging in propaganda by flat-out lying to the American public that knows better.
Given a chance by the host to address Trump’s video, Ryan called the president out in no uncertain terms.
“This is not Russia. We have seen propaganda video come out with Jim Acosta our own Jim Acosta,” she charged. “The White House tried to perpetrate a lie on me saying something that I never said about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She and her father went on Fox News saying this.”
“You know, this president has a tendency to throw rocks and he throws boulders and hides his hands,” she continued. “He has to understand that when you hurl insults at people you have to look in the mirror. and sometimes when you look in the mirror it’s not so pretty.”
“He is talking about Joe Biden,” she provided as an example. “Joe Biden never said his father was born in Germany when he was born in New York. I have never seen Joe Biden write a tweet saying ‘covfefe.’ Or I’ve never seen a Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders pick up a glass of water with two hands. He has to stop the schoolyard bullying. He thinks he is bullying people into submission and it’s not working — it’s just not.”

Prosecutors offered indicted GOP congressman a deal to keep his multiple taxpayer-funded trysts quiet — but he refused
On Tuesday, CNN reported that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), facing indictment for stealing campaign funds and falsifying spending reports, was offered a deal by to keep secret the incidents in which he used taxpayer money to finance affairs with lobbyists — but he refused.
"Prosecutors told a judge they tried to cut a deal with Hunter to avoid revealing the alleged tryst, but his attorneys refused," reported CNN's Tom Foreman.
The affairs were made public shortly after it was revealed that Hunter's wife Margaret, an alleged co-conspirator in the scheme, was cooperating with prosecutors. Hunter had previously tried to blame the entire scheme on his wife — a claim that looks increasingly dubious.
