Trump official calls journalist April Ryan ‘Missy Piggy,’ immediately regrets it


Trump Housing official Lynne Patton has apologized to White House correspondent April Ryan after posting a photo of the writer on Twitter, calling her “Miss Piggy” and a” broke blogger .”

According to BuzzFeed News, Patton, who handles the federal government’s New York and New Jersey housing programs, began tweeting at Ryan, a reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, on Tuesday, in response to a CNN clip in which Ryan says she’s received death threats since she began reporting on the White House.

Patton, in response, wrote that she too has received death threats for three years, telling Ryan,” welcome to the fraternity .”

Ryan then called Patton a clown and questioned who Patton was, while Patton called Ryan a blogger working for a bankrupt outlet.

Eventually, Ryan told Patton to” kicking rocks ,” then questioned her post at the Department of Housing and Urban Development( HUD ). In reaction, Patton shared her now-deleted tweet fat-shaming Ryan.

” I hear #MissPiggys still on a rampage. Gee, I must’ve struck a nerve, @AprilDRyan! #BankruptBlogger ,” Patton wrote.

On her personal profile, and on her HUD official Twitter, Patton has apologized to Ryan for sharing the insult, calling the move “beneath” her, and apologizing to the Trump family and HUD Secretary Ben Carson as well.

While BuzzFeed didn’t receive responses to requests for remark from the HUD, Patton , nor Ryan, political pundit Armstrong Williams tweeted on Thursday morning that Carson is” deep disappointed” by Patton’s comments, and has tried are to achieve Ryan.

Ryan has had a contentious relationship with the Trump administration and has repeatedly been ostracized for taking the president to duty. Last year, Trump constructed racial premises about Ryan during a press conference; Ryan also said that former administration official Omarosa Manigault threatened her. Ryan was also reportedly not invited to the White House holiday media party. After Trump called Haiti and El Salvador ” shithole” countries, Ryan blatantly asked him if he was racist.
