April Ryan has gone full pizzagate Trump derangement syndrome.
The CNN contributor posted an article positing a theory that Trump might be involved in a child trafficking ring.
CNN contributor April Ryan is being criticized for alerting her 336,000 Twitter followers to a story in The Root that asks if the Trump administration is involved in child sex-trafficking.
Among those condemning Ryan for the tweet is first lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman.
“If you’re a journalist w many followers & a @CNNPolitics contributor…is it ok to retweet any headline you want, regardless of if it’s true?” Stephanie Grisham asked on Twitter. “Remember: ‘The core purpose of a journalist is to research, document, write, & present the news in an honest, ethical, & unbiased way.’”
Here’s what she tweeted:
After she was criticized for it she laughed it off:

This is exactly the kind of stuff that they love nailing Trump on. April Ryan has been especially nasty since Trump was elected but she gets away with it because everyone pretends she’s a competent journalist. Sad!
