Video: Watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders shred April Ryan for asking if Trump will resign

On Tuesday, April Ryan, a propagandist with American Urban Radio Network who also works for CNN, actually asked if President Trump plans to resign from office, prompting a stinging rebuke from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“The President said yesterday he was complying, they turned over a million documents. If he was complying with the investigation why was there a search warrant?” Ryan asked.

“This doesn’t have anything to do with the President… When it comes to matters of the special counsel and dealing with the President we’ve been fully cooperative,” Sanders answered.

“With all of this turmoil, particularly this last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down, before or now?” Ryan asked in a follow-up.

“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders said, without hesitation.

“No, it’s not ridiculous. It’s not ridiculous. It’[s a legitimate question,” Ryan further said.

Sanders, however, waved her off and moved on to someone else: “I gave you two questions, April. We’re moving on.”

According to the Daily Caller, other reporters were taken aback by Ryan’s question as well.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

The FBI raided the office of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, angering Trump, who called the executed search warrant a “disgrace” and continued to call the overall Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller a “witch hunt.”

Cohen is at the center of a controversy surrounding a $130,000 payment he made in 2016 to Stormy Daniels, a porn actress who has claimed she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006. Daniels says it was a hush payment over the affair, which Trump has denied.

Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations, according to reports.

Sanders said earlier in Tuesday’s briefing Trump believes he has the power to fire Mueller if so inclined, which top Republicans have warned the president against doing.
