April Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks and a CNN analyst, has always had a rocky relationship with White house press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

But the Sanders revelation made public in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Thursday — that Sanders misled reporters about FBI officials’ support for James Comey’s firing — was disqualifying for the press secretary.

“Not only does she not have credibility, she lied,” Ryan said during a segment on CNN Thursday evening. “She out and out 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. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired, end of story. 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.”
