White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders utterly-unloaded on CNN’s April Ryan Tuesday after the reporter repeatedly interrupted the senior Trump aide; blasting the journalist for “rudely interrupting her colleagues” during the daily briefing.
Sanders was fielding questions from reporters when Ryan repeatedly badgered the Secretary on whether the President was willing to backtrack on his position regarding player protests at the NFL.
"Is the president aware that this is about police-involved shootings, and not about disrespecting the flag?" April Ryan asks in contentious exchange.
"The president has made his position crystal clear on this topic," Press Sec. Sanders replies. "He not going to waver on that." pic.twitter.com/yKRLY7AITX

“There are black and brown soldiers that fight in the military as well who feel taking the knee—bringing attention to police-involved shootings—is something that the W.H. should deal with. Is the president aware that taking the knee is about police-involved shootings?” asked Ryan.
“I let you rudely interrupt me and your colleague, I’m going to ask that you allow me to finish my answer. I’d be happy to answer if you stop talking long enough to let me do that,” fired back Sanders.
