April Ryan might have asked the worst question in the history of the White House press briefing on Tuesday.
Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks and a CNN political analyst, first asked a perfectly legitimate question about the recent Waffle House shooting, namely if the administration had reached out to hero James Shaw Jr. about visiting the White House and so that his selfless action could be honored by President Trump. Sanders responded that they had reached out to Shaw.
Ryan then launched into a nonsensical follow-up.
“Chaos, hush money, Russia trolls, Facebook, Wikileaks, D.N.C. Hacks, Comey email investigation on the eve of the election, allegations of collusion,” she said, lacking any semblance of basic sentence structure. “Do these issues give support to those who offer questions about the president’s legitimacy?”
The White House press secretary looked confused and responded “I’m not sure I follow the question.”
Sanders then added “millions of Americans came out and voted for and continue to support this presidency makes him pretty legitimate.”
