CNN's April Ryan Backtracks On Trump Boo Report
American Urban Radio report and CNN political analyst April Ryan was forced to backtrack on claims that the president was “heckled and booed” at a White House event Tuesday after it was reported that the ridicule was, in fact, directed at a protester in the crowd.
According to Fox News, Tuesday’s event was originally meant as a celebration for the Philadelphia Eagles to honor the team for its Super Bowl victory. But President Trump rescinded the invitation, accusing the team of disagreeing "with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”
Trump instead hosted a patriotic event to celebrate America.
Ryan tweeted just after noon that it was confirmed by reporters that Trump was “heckled and booed” when he appeared on the South Lawn.
She later deleted the tweet, citing “reporters on the south lawn” for misreporting the events.
Despite her attempts to backtrack, Twitter users fired back at Ryan’s misreporting.
