Just when you thought CNN couldn’t be any more repugnant, White House reporter April Ryan goes and does something like this.
CNN should be ashamed if they knew what the word meant.
Ryan is an utter disgrace to her profession.
This is her way of deriding Kanye West for being a Trump supporter….
From Daily Wire:
CNN political analyst April Ryan used a man who made a sex tape with Kim Kardashian to attack Kardashian’s husband, rapper Kanye West, on Thursday over the meeting that he had with President Donald Trump.
Ryan, who appeared on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer to break down the meeting between Trump and West, brought up rapper Ray J, saying that he was “a little concerned” about the meeting.
“I talked to someone who is very familiar with the Kardashians, or used to be, text messaging with Ray J. You know who Ray J is, he was once close with Kim Kardashian,” Ryan said.

Did April Ryan just say she reached out to Ray J for comment on the Kanye pool spray? Seriously?

Why the f did CNN’s April Ryan ask Ray J for comment on the Kanye/Trump meeting, other than to embarrass Kanye?

CNN’s communications team was forced to release a statement saying “CNN does not lie.”
Their message came a couple weeks before three CNN personalities were caught lying – in less than 24 hours.
Here’s CNN’s response to a message from President Donald Trump calling them out:
Make no mistake, Mr. President, CNN does not lie. We report the news. And we report when people in power tell lies. CNN stands by our reporting and our reporters. There may be many fools in this story but @carlbernstein is not one of them.

The lies, via The Daily Wire:
1. On Monday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper lied about a tweet from Donald Trump Jr.
Cooper’s statement was a blatant lie as Trump Jr. never mentioned anything about any hurricane and the article that he shared mocked CNN’s drastic decline in ratings.
It’s a shame that CNN’s ratings are down 41%. What’s worse is there’s a simple solution that they refuse to accept. Stop Lying to try to make @realDonaldTrump look bad. https://t.co/O3XyWchsJh pic.twitter.com/BCUCxKnOvO

2. CNN’s Communications team falsely claimed that CNN Digital is #1 “in all key metrics”

3. CNN’s Chris Cillizza lied about Trump remarks on Tuesday
No big deal: Just the president telling the FBI to ignore an allegation of sexual assault https://t.co/lvO8w9ccOm

Trump’s actual words?
“I don’t think the FBI should be involved because they don’t want to be involved, if they wanted to be I would certainly do that. As you say, this is not really their thing. The Senators will do a good job.”
