CNN’s April Ryan says Melania Trump is not “culturally American”

This is CNN: Racist reporter April Ryan

From Fox News: Critics are slamming CNN contributor April Ryan for suggesting that First Lady Melania Trump is “not culturally American” when discussing the “Be Best” campaign to combat cyberbullying on Monday night.

This is a first lady who is not culturally American, but she is learning the ways and this is not just an American issue. These are not just American issues,” Ryan told “OutFront” host Erin Burnett. “These are international issues. Cyberbullying is an international issue. Social media is international and also the opioid addiction issue, so it’s not just here, but it’s abroad as well.”

CNN did not respond to a request for clarification.

The first lady was born in Slovenia but has been an American citizen since 2006 and has lived in the country since 1996.

NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that “Ryan showing that she’s anything but a journalist” and is more of a liberal advocate. Her comments are absurd considering how long the first lady has lived in this country,” Houck said. “Regardless of one’s views of the president, the first lady is an example of ‘Only in America’ could this be possible.”

This isn’t the first time Ryan has caused a stir and Houck said her “comments about the president and behavior in the briefing room show Trump Derangement Syndrome in full force.”

Conservative commentator Carmine Sabia told Fox News that he remembers “when people were called racist” for saying the same thing about President Barack Obama. “I also remember people like April Ryan saying that we are a nation of immigrants. This is racism and reprehensible and she should be ashamed,” Sabia said.

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck agrees and took to Twitter to blast Ryan for the comment.

“April Ryan – I know when some said that Obama wasn’t fully ‘culturally American’ reporters cried racism. Now that you, a reporter, are saying the same, can they cry racism? Or do you just hate foreigners? Wow, this is easy, I see why the left likes it,” Beck wrote.

White House Director of Strategic Response Steven Cheung wrote, “What does that even mean? On a day when Mrs. Trump unveiled a very important initiative #BeBest, reporters can’t bring themselves to talk about anything but rumors and innuendo.”

Ryan twisted Sarah Sanders’ words on Thursday night in order to make the absurd suggestion that the White House press secretary is looking for a physical confrontation with the star reporter.

After Ryan asked a combative question during Thursday’s press briefing, accusing Sanders of being “blindsided” by comments Rudy Giuliani recently made on Fox News, Sanders told Ryan, “Well, with all due respect, you actually don’t know much about me in terms of what I feel and what I don’t.”

Ryan misquoted Sanders while speaking to CNN colleague Don Lemon on-air afterwards, claiming the press secretary said, “You don’t know me,” before declaring the phrase to be fighting words.

“For Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the presidential spokesperson, the mouthpiece for the President of the United States, to say, ‘You don’t know me,’ in certain quarters in this nation, that starts a physical fight,” Ryan said. “I was very shocked. It was street. I will even go beyond that, it was gutter.”

Ryan also famously accused Sanders of lying about whether or not she baked a pie for Thanksgiving.

  2. I believe April Ryan would declare Melania qualified for president were she to run as a progressive.

    • marblenecltr . . . . Yup! No doubt about it!. If Melania were a lefty, and thank God she is not, April Ryan would be slobbering all over her with accolades.

      I saw April Ryan in action during one of the briefings . . . she truly is a piece of work. Of course, everyone will cut her slack due to the fact that she is African American. Although, Sarah gave her as good as she got.

      You just gotta love Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She is smart, well spoke, does not dress like a Hoochi Mama, and when uppity journalists get in her face, she does not hold back.

  3. Well, given that April Ryan is black and presumably at least some of her ancestors were black, she isn’t “culturally American” either. I guess Mz. Ryan has forgotten that many blacks love to remind the rest of us that blacks were the victims of ((people who)) ran the slave trade and ((who)) were, in the great majority, not white Christian despite what Mz. Ryan may have been told or may believe. Mz. Ryan also may not be aware that blacks were complicit in the slave trade.

    “Culturally American” actually means white Christians, not those ((who)) primarily owned and ran the slave trade. So, Ms. Ryan is completely incorrect. The First Lady, Melania Trump, is white and is Christian and has no slave ownership in her background. The First Lady is therefore very much “culturally American”.

    (Interestingly, Mz. Ryan’s wiki page doesn’t include any info about her genealogy. Although it does state she started out as a jazz disc jockey. I perused several articles about her and found nothing on her background, which is a bit suspicious.)

    • I am not sure what in the Sam Hill she even means by culturally American. I see people around the world that wear American clothes and want to eat American food listen to our music and dance American oriented dances, and they love our country. Does that make them culturally American also?
      Is,she trying to cram slavery into the conversation also? If so, she can stop with the victim Schlick now.
      How does attacking the First Lady settle anything but showing us how pathetically a sad person Ryan is.

      • Glenn47 . . . . Indeed, how does this outburst against our First Lady show “anything but showing us how pathetically a sad person Ryan is.”

        Gosh, what an amazing rise to fame, from a DJ to a White House journalist! Now, that is impressive?

    • Thanks st long for pointing out what I was about to do…..and I might add…IF this black woman, the descendant of imported African Slaves…as they are so wont to do…..has EVER EVER espoused a kinship with an African country, even ONE that might have SOLD HER ANCESTORS into slavery in the first place, and IF she has ever ever celebrated the fake celebration of “”Kwanza,” THEN…..she and the Melonia that she claims to NOT be a “cultural American” are in the SAME BOAT by her own definition.

    • stlonginus . . . . Bravo! Your points are so extremely on target! Your delving into her “credentials” and finding nothing on her background that would help us to believe that she is actually qualified to be a journalist . . . “is a bit suspicious.”

  9. Once again jealousy, ENVY, ignorance and coming from the “other side” of the tracks is what drives these ghetto-born two-legged rat to pour out HE insults to one of the most distinguished First Lady we have seen for a looooong time. First Lady Mrs. Trump is poised, elegant, non-pretentious woman, a NATURAL, a lady that cares for children and wants to stir away the youth from opioids. What has this [envy possessed racist blaber mouth] “culturally contributed” to her race? Whatch her stand out among the reporters during press briefings, P.O.S.

    • Alma . . . . You are right on the money! She certainly does stand out “among the reporters during press briefings, POS” Perhaps she gets such accolades from her libtards pals, but as far as conservatives are concerned, she is truly a loud mouth, irritant. CNN should change her out.

  16. You kind people here really don’t know how difficult it is sometimes for me to hold my temper in check and not simply go off one some of these people and let fly with the words that my dainty ears learned in the foundry.

    That’s right, I can and have used words that would make a sailor cover his ( or her) ears. Where to start. Does this woman not remember that the first slaves in our great country were not black, but had red hair and white skin, and were brought over from Ireland? Does this woman not know that the position of first lady has only one requirement, that being to be married to the president? And that it is not in any way shape or form an elected post?

    Perhaps Ms. Ryan should consider comparing her I.Q. with Mrs. Trumps. Ah, probably not, since it is obvious how that would work out for her.

    You know, Melania Trump at one time was a model, and as such, she posed in some pictures that could be considered at the very least tasteless, and even pornographic. However, it would do for each and every one of us to remember that our Lord is a Lord of second chances, and luck for us. And in her case, she has not only made the most of her second chances, but she has done so with class and grace, and also with great dignity.

    For this person April Ryan to continually not report the news, but to BE the news, is telling, and not in a good way. What it is telling is that when she interjects herself into a story, it is always to harm a conservative, never a liberal, and so she is biased toward the liberals. So then, why would anyone want to either listen to any reporting that she does, as anything other than opinion, and why would anyone trust her network, when they knowingly keep her on their payroll, after it is public knowledge that she is so biased.

    It reminds me of the bumper sticker that a man from church had 30 years ago. It read, CBS News, Rather Biased.

  18. I don’t know what bug crawled up April Ryan’s bunghole, but something changed terribly in her since Trump became elected the 45th PotUS.

    She was once a semi-regular on Armstrong William’s conservative talk show, “The Right Side” (airs on network TV on Sunday mornings) as a semi-articulate left-leaning moderate (at worst). I actually enjoyed some of their conversations. But she has been on a WARPATH with my girl, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, since day 1, and it just tarnishes Ryan’s reputation, the same way the AP news service lost all credibility with me once they declared war on Trump, the same as the other cable “news shows” lost theirs. The same as even network TV, and certainly PBS and NPR lost theirs for merely following the herd and blindly repeating the pablum and drivel from the AP (and the DNC).

    I somehow started receiving MSNBC on my cable app (but not directly via my cable TV provider, go figure), and in watching as much as I could so far, am just in disbelief about what their news people get away with saying on live national TV… about Trump. Such as that, “he’s a compulsive liar”, or that he has, “so far issued 3,000 lies”, or other assorted horse shit (that’s what it is, sorry). They have ALL lost their collective, drug-addled, socialist-anarchist, atheist minds. Even some that were rather decent during the Obama years and before on network news have gone to the dark side with cable news and now merely spout the same vomitous diarrhea. It’s like a STD, an infection.

    All I can say here is that she will now be the latest victim of the “Boomerang Effect”. It usually leaves a mark when you do stupid stuff like this and it all comes back at you like a bag of bees! Couldn’t happen to a better person. Keep up the good work Ms. Ryan!
