• Meet The Reporter That Just Put Josh Earnest In His Place

    It was getting tense today during the White House press briefing. American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan engaged in a bit of a war of words with White House press jerk Josh Earnest over whether or not China–which has a huge economy and invests heavily in Africa–should assist America more in its efforts to eradicate Ebola.

    But when Ryan referenced a recent announcement from the International Monetary Fund that China has now surpassed the United States as the world’s largest economy, Josh Earnest went full douche bag.

    “I don’t think that’s true,” Earnest said. “The greatest economy in the world?” he asked.

    Ryan folded her arms and reworded her question.

    Earnest persisted in his disagreement as Ryan insisted that the IMF’s numbers were accurate. Her frustration visible to everyone in the room, she said “I don’t like being discredited.”

    “By China being the top economy that they are, do they have a responsibility to help?” Ryan asked.

    Earnest said “yes,” and continued to spin and spew lame talking points.

    It was good to see that prick’s face turn red.

    And Ryan’s question is made even more relevant as news breaks about the Obama administration considering plans to bring non-U.S. citizens infected with Ebola to American medical facilities for treatment.
