HUD Official, Lynn Patton apologizes for calling April Ryan Miss Piggy on twitter Wednesday. Lynn Patton who is Vice President of the Eric Trump foundation and Senior Family assistant tweeted out a message including April Ryan on Wednesday, insulting her “rampage”, saying she must have struck a nerve.

No one should ever publicly dismiss any death threats someone gets. Not cool., particularly by gov official on tax payers dime during the work day! That is how it all started. I Accept @RealBenCarson apoology and await his call.
