Veteran White House correspondent April Ryan has told Newsweek she won’t be in attendance at the farewell party for White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders that is being organized by two members of the White House press corps.
“I won’t be there!” Ryan told Newsweek about her appearance at the event scheduled for Monday at an upscale D.C. restaurant.
HuffPost first reported on Thursday about the existence of the plans, which were crafted after last week’s announcement from President Donald Trump that Sanders would be leaving her post in the coming weeks.
The article goes on to state the following:
Anita Kumar, a White House reporter for Politico and a WHCA board member, organized the event along with her WHCA colleague Francesca Chambers, a reporter with the Daily Mail, according to HuffPost.
In a statement to Newsweek, Kumar said that the gathering is “not an official WHCA event” but an informal get-together for “reporters who have engaged with Sarah Sanders, many of whom have done so for years.”
Ryan posted a video on Twitter Friday morning, in which she blasted Sanders for not holding a press briefing on the conflict with Iran. “We Deserve Better: It has been 100+ days since we’ve had a
#WhiteHouse press briefing. It’s unacceptable & the #American people deserve better. Our nation faced potential war & Sarah Sanders didn’t prepare any of us. Shameful!” Ryan wrote in her Twitter post.
After delivering her scathing rebuke over the lack of a press briefing, Ryan concluded with, “Sarah Huckabee, have your party. I won’t be there. Girl, bye!”
