White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not having it when reporter April Ryan suggested she was “blindsided” by Rudy Giuliani's bombshell interview admitting President Donald Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000 Stormy Daniels payment.

“Did Rudy Giuliani do harm to the president today and last night in his conversations to Fox?” Ryan began her series of questions on the matter.
“I don't believe so,” Sanders replied.
“Why didn't he talk to the White House press office about his impacting stellar statement about what was happening?” Ryan asked.
“The White House press office wouldn't coordinate with the president's outside legal team on legal strategy,” the press secretary said with a smile.
“You said yourself you were blindsided,” Ryan responded.
“I actually didn't use that term,” Sanders countered.

“Well, I said it. But you were blindsided from what you said,” Ryan said.
And that's when Sanders shot back.
“With all due respect, you actually don't know much about me in terms of what I feel and what I don't,” Sanders said. “I think we're done.”
Watch the epic moment:
Afterward, Ryan appeared on a CNN panel and railed against Sanders, saying, "She took this personally, and it was not a personal attack.
“[...] She was watching, she found out all of the information while she was watching Fox last night,” she continued her rant. “So she was blindsided. This was not a personal attack on her. And for her to say something like, 'You don't know me,' that was very street.”
Watch Ryan's response:
“I've been around for 21 years at this White House, from the second term of Bill Clinton until the first term of Donald J. Trump,” Ryan added. “I've seen impeachment, I've seen war, I've seen peace. So I understand the process. I'm not a dummy, and do not discredit me.”
