White House Fails To Invite April Ryan To Its Annual Holiday Party

The White House has failed to invite April Ryan to its annual holiday party.

The Trump White House has failed to invite April Ryan, American Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief. Ryan is one of the few minority female journalists credentialed to attend the White House daily press briefings according to Newsweek.

Ryan, a CNN political analyst who has said journalists of color are considered the “opposition” to the Trump administration, said it was the first time in her career as a White House reporter she had been excluded from the guest list.

Ryan sees this as a petty slight.

“I don’t think I was overlooked,” Ryan told The Washington Post. “I think they don’t like me. For whatever reason, they have disdain for me.”
