It turns out that saying someone should “have their head lopped off” isn’t the best thing to say.
Even if you claim you were joking.
Or didn’t mean it literally.
Maybe not a great phrase to use, considering that people are LITERALLY getting their heads chopped off in certain areas of the world even to this day!
Yeah, it’s funny, some of us just don’t think that’s a good thing to say about someone else.
In case you missed the story, let me bring you up to speed.
From The Hill:
Ryan, the White House correspondent for National Urban Radio Networks and a CNN contributor, alleged last week that Sanders “lied” following the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett late last Thursday. “She outright lied and the people, the American people, can't trust her. They can't trust what's said from the president's mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people's house."
"When there is 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," Ryan added.
And from AOL:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday said CNN analyst April Ryan had reached “a new low” by calling for “lopping the heads off” of discredited Trump administration officials, including Sanders.
The press secretary, who has frequently accused the media of not recognizing President Trump’s jokes, took Ryan’s remark as a literal demand for her decapitation.
“Look, I’ve had reporters say a lot of things about me,” Sanders said on “Fox & Friends.” “They’ve said I should be choked, they said I deserve a lifetime of harassment but certainly never had somebody say I should be decapitated. This takes us to a new low even for the liberal media.”
After the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which said Sanders had invented her account of “countless” FBI agents approving Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey in 2017, Ryan said the White House spokeswoman had lost all credibility.
“She outright lied, and the people, the American people can’t trust her, they can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece,” Ryan said Thursday. “Therefore, she should be let go, she should be fired.”
Ryan added: “When there is 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.”
Mike Huckabee (Sarah Sanders' father) was not amused:
And April Ryan then shot back at Huckabee with this disgusting message:
Hey April Ryan, who made you in charge of that question?
I think that's a little above your pay grade!
It looks like not many people are amused by April Ryan, because a Petition to have her banned from the White House has already hit 160% of its goal on day 1!

CNN’s April Ryan Says Sarah Sanders’ Head Should Be “Lopped Off”Not only is this inciting violence against the President's staff, but it's insensitive to the families of Americans beheaded by ISIS.
