Sarah Sanders Blasts April Ryan’s Call for Her Firing With ‘Lopping the Heads Off’ Remark as a ‘New Low’


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took aim at CNN’s April Ryan in an interview on Monday morning, blasting her “lopping the heads off” comments calling for her to be fired from her job as a “new low.”

While appearing on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Sanders — the current White House press secretary serving since 2017 — responded to Ryan’s demand of Sanders being fired from her position as the president’s press secretary after she admitted that her claim in 2017 of “countless” FBI agents coming forward to denounce former FBI Director James Comey was false.

“You have to start and start lopping the heads off,” Ryan said on CNN Thursday.

Watch Ryan’s comments here:

“She should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there’s a lack of credibility there, you have to start, and you have to start lopping the heads off.”

Sanders didn’t take too kindly to Ryan’s comments, proclaiming that she has “had reporters say a lot of things about [her],” torching the political analyst’s demand as “a new low, even for the liberal media.”

Watch Sanders’s response here:

“I have had reporters say a lot of things about me. They said I should be choked. They said I should deserve a lifetime of harassment, but certainly never had somebody say that I should be decapitated. This takes this to a new low even for the liberal media.”

“I think it just once again proves why this journalist is taken seriously,” Sanders added.

On Thursday, Sanders admitted to exaggerating her 2017 claim about the “countless” FBI agents that came forward to speak out against Comey during an interview on Fox News. Sanders said the “countless” comment was a “slip of the tongue” while taking a shot at Comey, calling him a “disgraced leaker,” as IJR Red previously reported.
