CNN’s April Ryan and former Gov. Mike Huckabee go after each other online

CNN political analyst April Ryan and former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) have a back and forth on Twitter after she criticized White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders (Huckabee's daughter) , reported The Daily Caller.

Ryan's initial remarks on Sarah Sanders: "When there was a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s fire me Thursday or fire me Good Friday. She needs to go.”

Huckabee's response: "So liberals—is this okay? Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder? CNN's April Ryan Says Sarah Sanders' Head Should Be 'Lopped Off.' Will the ⁦@whca⁩ revoke April Ryan’s credentials? If not, they are gutless tools."

Ryan responds: "Hey Mike you said I should be gutted like a dear. Do you remember? Don’t lie! God is watching and I have tape!" She was referring to a joke Huckabee made in in 2017: "...don’t ever and I mean don’t ever mess with a Southern woman and her homemade pies. It is as dangerous as when you hear a Southern woman begin her sentence with ‘bless your heart.’ It means you’re about to be gutted like a deer and just don’t know it.”

The bottom line: Both are taking phrases out of context and bending them to make a political point.
