Trish Regan Unloads on April Ryan After She Accuses Trump of Racism: You ‘Can’t Play the ‘Victim’ Card’

On Thursday, Fox Business host Trish Regan challenged White House reporter April Ryan’s assertion that the president had a racial motive when he criticized her.

In a Washington Post op-ed, Ryan specifically addressed how Trump called her a “loser” and told her to “sit down” during Wednesday’s press conference.

“It’s not hard to find the common denominator,” she said. “Though there’s hardly anyone — from his predecessors to senators in his own party — he won’t try to shout down with ad hominem insults, Trump relishes, and injects venom into, verbal attacks against women of color.”

She wasn’t the only one to complain about the way Trump treated black women. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin similarly called out Trump for directing his criticism at Ryan and two other African-American reporters.

Watch the video below:

Regan, however, pointed out that Trump accused others besides African-American women.

“The common denominator really in all of this is that these reporters do not know how to conduct themselves with any kind of decorum,” she said. She pointed to how Trump went after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, whom she described as a “white male.”

Watch Regan’s comments and Ryan’s Wednesday exchange below:

Ryan quickly corrected Regan, explaining that Acosta was of Cuban descent. Regan responded by arguing that Trump also attacked NBC’s Peter Alexander:

“U can’t play the ‘victim’ card,” Regan said in another tweet. Ryan, in response, accused Regan of spreading “FAKE NEWS”:

When Regan tried to push back again, Ryan told her she would block her “hate.”

“I have had enough with your bias lies on me,” she added.

Regan commented that Ryan’s actions were proof that some in the mainstream media couldn’t “handle reality.”

What is “nutty” about CNN? What is nutty is a FOX network anchor saying that “the press should report the news as Trump wants it reported.” That is flat out nuts. That is called state media, not freedom of the press.

Ryan does nothing more than start a discussion about Trump being racist.

The white supremacist across the country are convinced Trump is one of them. Then you have the fines for discriminatory rental practices and the $200,000 fine for accommodating a racist gambler ‘s request in his NJ casino, and the “fine people on both sides” comment. I come from long lines of WASP, but the ONE thing I agree with the white nationalist, Trump is one of them. That discussion was settled before anyone cast a vote in 2016.

I would agree that she isn’t mistreated because she is a different race. I think she, and many others, ask questions the president doesn’t like and that is why they are treated poorly.

The poor treatment wasn’t really part of the job, but with this presidency it is part of it.

Well, Phoenix, 17 readers voted down on your comment, and not a single one was able to articulate what it is they disagree. Perhaps one of them could explain the lack of insults directed toward Charles Spiering, John Roberts, John Gizzi, Eli Stokols, Sergi Engosi, and Francesca Chambers. A noticeable difference between MSM WH correspondents and Breitbart, FOX News, Newsmax, WSJ, Daily Caller, and Daily Mail, All ask questions as tough as MSM correspondents, without the insults of their IQ.

A difference of opinion does not excuse for being a jerk. If I can have cordial and respectful conversations with folks who have a difference of opinion then I feel that would be a minimum requirement for someone leading the country. Obama may have snuck in jabs, but he was never blantantly disrespectful.

And how are you seeing all these details on who up votes/down votes? I don’t see any of that detail. Maybe because I’m mobile?

Move your cursor over the number and the names should appear–it does not tell you how they voted, but you can make an educated guess. I took a lot of stuff off my phone to make room for pics and videos of our recent trip, but when I transfer the pics, I will check if it works on my phone.

I’ll check sometime on my computer. I just use the browser on my phone so i don’t see it. Thanks!

I hope you had a nice trip!
