After CNN political contributor April Ryan asked a highly inappropriate question on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders silenced her with just two words.
During the White House press briefing, Ryan asked whether President Donald Trump is considering resigning from office.
As reported by The Daily Caller, Ryan was dead serious, and Sanders let her know her question was utterly groundless.
“With all of this turmoil, particularly this last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down, before or now?” Ryan asked.
Sanders fired back: “No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question.”
In the video clip, other reporters in the room were visibly taken aback by the question from the CNN contributor.
Several users on social media voiced their concerns with Ryan’s highly inappropriate and politically-charged question:
Sarah should have asked her if she were resigning.

What a load of bull. When Obama’s administration lies about Benghazi, did she ask if it was time for Obama to “step down”? She’s a piece of work.

Ryan’s initial question was about Special Counsel Robert Mueller giving federal prosecutors in Manhattan, New York a referral to execute a search warrant on Michael Cohen’s office on Monday.
Mueller’s office is investigating Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer, for alleged tax crimes.
Ryan was using the raid as a pretext for her highly inappropriate question about Trump resigning.
The FBI reportedly took documents between Cohen and many of his clients as well as records regarding adult film star Stormy Daniels.
She was implying Trump was guilty and would be leaving the White House soon, which is a baseless question she never would have asked former President Barack Obama about his numerous scandals.
Thankfully, Sanders smacked down Ryan’s ridiculous question with just two words.
