Regional HUD Official in Twitter Feud with Journalist

April Ryan and Lynne Patton

Using her personal Twitter account, Patton tweeted out to Ryan, "I hear #Miss Piggys still on a rampage".

"Nobody from this Administration reached me". Much in the same way yawns can be contagious, so, too, apparently, can insensitive, sophomoric rudeness, as Housing and Urban Development staffer Lynne Patton showed Wednesday night when she mocked the physical appearance of White House correspondent April Ryan. My folks raised me to regard others and I lament my reaction. On her HUD account, she wrote, "Tonight, I made an inexcusable comment on my personal Twitter account that I deeply regret & deleted on my own volition".

The now-deleted tweet was aimed at April Ryan, the Washington bureau chief of American Urban Radio Networks who also is a CNN political analyst.

A Twitter war that erupted between Ryan and event-planner turned HUD honcho Lynne Patton foamed over when Patton called Ryan "Miss Piggy" in one of her shots.

"Thank you", Ryan tweeted Williams.

Kyrie Irving Threatened Knee Surgery If Cavs Didn't Trade Him
Threatening to sit out part (or all) of the 2017-18 season if the Cavs refused to trade him, in all likelihood, was a bluff. Gilbert did not have to trade him at all and could have held onto the point guard and forced him to remain with the team.

For her part, Ryan did not appear eager to forgive and forget.

Ryan didn't hold back and told Patton to "kick rocks" and "find a job".

Mr Spicer, who left his job last July, became visibly defensive as he responded to the journalist's question about Russian Federation and argued everyone has reached the conclusion there was no "collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. I apologize to them, @SecretaryCarson & the Trump family. "In response, Ryan thanked Williams and said she "[wants] to talk with Dr. Carson about this when he has time".

As she protested, Mr Spicer said: "I'm sorry, please stop shaking your head again".
