CNN political analyst April Ryan has always been a partisan hack, but this time she outdid herself. She is proclaiming that Jim Acosta’s life was in danger at a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida last Tuesday because the crowd was chanting “CNN sucks!” and other colorful, yet accurate statements about CNN and Jim Acosta in general. She’s insinuating that the chanting was a death threat against Acosta. She must have it confused with all the violence coming from the left, communists and Antifa these days. Acosta stated that he did not feel like he was in America and expressed that he is “very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.” But no word of concern from Acosta on Trump supporters being beaten by leftist radicals on numerous occasions at various locations across the country.
On Don Lemon’s show, Ryan accused Sanders of “lying” from the press podium, saying, “That podium is no place to play. You don’t play with words or moments. That’s a serious moment and a serious place. And Jim Acosta’s life – in my opinion — was in jeopardy that night. There was a safety issue.” You blithering idiot, the only danger here is from Acosta himself and his big mouth. Another brain-trust from CNN, Brian Stelter, has accused Trump of leading a “hate movement” against the mainstream media. And CNN’s David Gergen even said that blood will be on Trump’s hands if there is violence committed against mainstream media journalists. What about the blood on the media’s hands as Trump supporters were sucker punched and beaten with eggs and rocks in San Jose? Remember that? I have seen no violence against these media propagandists, but I’ve sure seen Trump people get harassed, beaten, stalked and threatened.
Ryan is also stating that reporters such as herself need security like the Secret Service detail White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders received after a left-wing Virginia restaurant owner kicked her out of his establishment along with her family. The restaurant owner than promptly followed the White House press security to her in-law’s next destination and harassed and organized protests against her family. That’s laughable… the only protective detail Ryan needs is one to keep her from making a fool of herself. Oops… too late. Ryan thinks way too highly of herself.
