A quote from April Ryan in which she used hyperbole as a means of expressing her desire to see the White House Press Secretary fired led to Mike Huckabee demanding that CNN reprimand Ryan over her "incitement to murder". During the panel discussion, Ryan was asked about the allegations that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made certain statements to the public that were inaccurate.
Sanders told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night that she was wrong to use the word "countless", but did say it was "not untrue" that "a number of current and former Federal Bureau of Investigation agents agreed with the president" about Comey while referring to him as a "disgraced leaker".
Following the press conference, Sanders spoke to the President, who told her she did a good job and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments. When a reporter challenged that by saying the vast majority of agents in fact supported him, Sanders said, "Look, we've heard from countless members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that say very different things". A day later, she said, "I've heard from countless members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that are grateful and thankful for the president's decision".

David De Gea allowed a Lionel Messi shot to burst through his gloves on Tuesday at Camp Nou, which gave Barca a 2-0 lead. Here are some moments he came closes to ticking one of the aforementioned boxes.
Mueller's report says Sanders told investigators that her statements in defense of Comey's firing were made "in the heat of the moment" and "not founded on anything".
After two years of waiting, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's report was released on Thursday. "I can speak to my own personal experience", she added. "And the people, the American people can't trust her". She went on: "I've certainly heard from a large number of individuals". The report also notes that Sanders told investigators her misleading claims were simply a "slip of the tongue". The president did not "dictate" the statement, she explained on air, but "weighed in" and "relayed information he wanted included". She now holds occasional briefings, presumably on days when the White House feels it will be advantageous.
In a political environment where Republican officials have been shot at a baseball field, progressive activists targeting the family home of right-leaning pundits, and others verbally accosting President Trump's cabinet and administration officials in restaurants ( actually being encouraged to do so by sitting Congresswomen), Gov. Huckabee rightfully called out CNN and April Ryan for her poor choice of words.
