- Asshole Establishment Whore Paul Ryan said that Nationalist Donald Trump does not represent GOP principles.
- Ryan is correct. Trump's Nationalist movement is fighting against the corrupt GOP to bring back middle class jobs, secure the border and cut spending.
- The GOP believes in NONE of those things. The modern GOP is little more than a pro-gun faction of the Democrat Party.
(Yahoo News) - House Speaker Paul Ryan has been defending Donald Trump ever since his formal endorsement of him two days before the November 2016 presidential election.
But in a conference call in early October, Ryan told fellow House Republicans he would not “defend Donald Trump — not now, not in the future,” according to an audio recording published by Breitbart News on Monday.
Ryan’s abandonment of Trump, which came in response to the publication of Trump’s lewd remarks about women on the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, had been reported at the time.
“The world is well aware of this history,” Brendan Buck, a spokesman for the House speaker, said Tuesday in a statement to Yahoo News. “And obviously a lot has happened since then.”
Buck added: “As everyone knows, they came together toward the end of the campaign and the speaker vocally supported him.”
But the publication of the news by Breitbart, a far-right, pro-Trump website that was formerly led by White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, puts Ryan’s sometimes difficult relationship with the president into stark relief.
“His comments are not anywhere in keeping with our party’s principles and values,” Ryan said during the Oct. 10 call. “There are basically two things that I want to make really clear, as for myself as your speaker. I am not going to defend Donald Trump — not now, not in the future.”
The same day, Trump responded to reports about Ryan’s comments.
“Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee,” Trump tweeted.Read More . . . . .
