White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cracked the room up Wednesday after a humorous exchange with April Ryan.


After Sanders called on Ryan instead of another reporter, the CNN contributor reminded her that he was first.

“April, that was very polite of you,” Sanders said.

“I’m always polite,” Ryan replied.

“Just to be clear, I didn’t suggest otherwise, because I’m sure there will be some sort of terrible comment about how I was abusive to the press otherwise. Go ahead.”

Ryan quipped, “Me in particular, but go ahead.”

Things haven’t always been so peachy between the two women.

After the State of the Union in February, Sanders told Ryan, “I think its un-American not to be excited about the fact that more people in this country have jobs than they did before, the fact that more people in this country have higher wages than they did before, the fact that the economy is booming like it wasn’t before, the fact that ISIS is being crushed like it wasn’t before.” (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Shoots Down April Ryan’s Suggestion That Trump’s Criticism Of Dems Is ‘Un-American’)
