*An official for the Department of Housing and Urban Development called reporter April Ryan “Miss Piggy” during a heated debate that played out on social media.

Isn’t that kinda like the pot calling the kettle black? But we digress. Back to the story …

Lynne Patton’s vile, now-deleted tweet about April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks also included the hashtag “BankruptBlogger.”

An hour later, Patton wrote, “I deleted my last tweet by choice. No one from this Administration contacted me. It was beneath me & I apologize to @AprilDRyan.”

The event planner who landed a job in the Trump administration apologized for calling April “Miss Piggy,” and also noted that: “My parents raised me to respect others & I regret my response. I apologize to them, @SecretaryCarson & the Trump family. They deserved better,” Patton added.

Ryan appeared on CNN and revealed that she and several other reporters have received death threats as a result of Trump’s attacks on the press.

Patton, who spoke at the Republican National Convention and planned Eric Trump’s wedding before she was appointed to HUD with no prior housing experience, dismissed Ryan’s concerns on Twitter.

“As a conservative black female who has publicly worked for & supported @realDonaldTrump, I’ve been getting death threats from fellow minorities on the left for the past 3 years — so welcome to the club. @AprilDRyan,” she wrote.

The two continued to traded words before Patton tweeted, “I hear #MissPiggys still on a rampage. Gee, I must’ve struck a nerve, @AprilDRyan! #BankruptBlogger.”

Ryan told Patton to “kick rocks” and “find a job.”

“Whose wedding are you planning now and what wig company do you work for?” Ryan demanded.

Ryan later thanked her Twitter followers for supporting her and tweeted, “For the record I don’t know this woman @LynnePattonHUD and don’t know why my name is in her mouth. Since she started targeting me yesterday over my death threats I have found out.”
