CNN’s April Ryan Says Trump Wants to Nuke Hurricanes Because He’s Racist

CNN White House correspondent April Ryan suggested President Trump’s alleged plan to nuke hurricanes is racist.

No seriously, she said that.

Some people become such caricatures of themselves that they ultimately become a joke that only the people around them see. Ryan has reached that point.

Axios published a report this weekend indicating that the President “suggested multiple times to senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States.”

“They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it,” Trump reportedly said. “Why can’t we do that?”

Some have suggested he was joking, while others noted such brainstorming ideas have been brought up in past administrations.

Trump responded by attacking the report as “ridiculous” and more “fake news.”

During a segment on New Day earlier this week, the panel of political pundits mostly joked around about the story, even suggesting Trump may have gotten the idea from ‘Sharknado.’

Ryan, however, took it very seriously and somehow managed to play the race card.

After noting President Trump mentioned that hurricanes generate off the coast of Africa, Ryan also reminded viewers that he had once called some countries there by a vulgar name.

“He’s called Africa a s***hole nation,” Ryan lamented.

“What part of Africa are you talking about?” she continued. “Sub-Saharan Africa, where there are mostly black people? This is just crazy. There is a ripple effect that could happen for land, sea, for people, if he did something like this.”

Yes, Ms. Ryan. The President wants to nuke hurricanes as they move away from Africa just to create giant waves that would affect only black people in Africa.

That’s an example of something you should say out loud in a mirror first to realize just how idiotic it is before you go on national television and embarrass yourself.

Perhaps this is why former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders perpetually used Ryan as an intellectual punching bag during her tenure there, ripping her as a journalist who “is not taken seriously.”

The President, for his part, has also eviscerated Ryan in the past.

“It’s the same thing with April Ryan,” he said when discussing possibly revoking press credentials last November.

“You talk about somebody who’s a loser,” Trump added. “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise, or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she’s very nasty, and she shouldn’t be.”

Is it any wonder he’s frustrated with CNN reporters after this latest attempt to paint him as a racist?

  • I simply can not conceive of the level of ignorance that is required to be one of the mouthpieces on the Communist News Network. Pitifully ridiculous statements pour seemingly nonstop out of their addle brained heads.

  • April Ryan is a racist for even suggesting such utter race-baiting foolishness. She shouldn't be a White House correspondent with such demonstrated bias. Sickening.

  • April Ryan is the worse example of a journalist. When CNN says jump she can't get her a$$ off of the ground. All she needs is an apple stuck in her mouth at the next BBQ. She is so useless in any capacity. Hot air is about all that comes out of her fat mouth.

  • It's mind boggling how someone with so little to offer, ends up as a news commentator. It seems to be a matter of The Dumber the Better. I suppose that makes them more qualified. It's no wonder the news isn't worth watching.

  • The old gal, April, makes up news as she goes along. Makes no difference if it is true or not. Who would believe this old racist? One of the biggest ever.
