Paul Ryan Tells House GOP He Will Not Defend Or Campaign With Donald Trump

Tyler Durden's picture

Heading into Monday, there was speculation that Speaker Paul Ryan would rescind his endorsement of Donald Trump after the emergence of the Trump Tapes, following an exodus of his lawmaker peers doing the same over the weekend. The Speaker had a conference call scheduled for 11 a.m. on Monday with House Republican, to assess Donald Trump’s debate performance and advise rank-and-file Republicans on how to deal with fallout from leaked audio.

As of last night, no decision had been made, but as Politico adds, "that the speaker of the House has even mulled abandoning his own party's presidential nominee is illustrative of the extraordinarily bizarre political climate in the Republican Party. "I think they all face the same dilemma to varying degrees," a senior House Republican leadership aide said, echoing the sentiment of multiple high-level aides and lawmakers interviewed by POLITICO. "How to express displeasure in a meaningful way... How best to help members in tough races... How to try to rebuild the party post the anticipated apocalypse. I think they are all having individual and group discussions wrestling with this."

And while it remains unclear what has been officially agreed upon, moments ago, Politico's Jake Sherman tweeted that while there was no formal decision, Paul Ryan announced that he won't defend Trump and "will focus the next 28 days on keeping the House majority"

 

Which is as close to Ryan abandoning Trump as the House speaker could have gone, without officially withdrawing his support, and leading to even greater chaos and fracturing for the republican party.

Ryan needs to be voted out, he is an insider. We don't need him, he needs us. Don't ever forget that.

Considering how vigorous he was (even when included on the ticket) for Romney, I'm not so sure this a bad thing.

Wisconsin, why can't you get rid of this RINO?  Everyone else needs to contract their Representative and impress upon him or her how Ryan needs to be reomoved from the Speakership.

Paul Ryan is a real republican. He's proven tht he is a responsible leader who can work with congress to solve issues that may not be popular with the conservative base, like providing amnesty for undocumented immigrants, a carbon tax to prevent climate change, and raising the debt ceiling to prevent a government shutdown. Donald Trump is going to have a hard time getting his way with someone as seasoned and experienced as Paul Ryan.

You know that you're functioning as a perfect reverse barometer, right?

 

Paul Ryan is a real democrat. He's proven tht he is an irresponsible leader who cannot work with congress to solve issues that may be popular with the liberal base, like providing open borders, a carbon tax to strangle the economy, and raising the debt ceiling to allow continued profligate spending. Donald Trump is going to have a hard time getting his way with someone as unprincipled and two-faced as Paul Ryan.

He's a fucking moron. He'll lose his seat, and he knows it... hence the panic.

Let's support Hillary, who's closest advisor just left her husband because he was preying on teenage girls.  But then again she was probably too busy massaging Hillary's witherd clit to notice.

FTW.

I used to listen to the jewboy Charlie Sykes every morning on WTMJ radio from Milwaukee, back in the 1990s. Sykes was pushing conservatism when conservatism wasn't cool. Only it wasn't conservatism, it was neoconservatism. Liberal Jewboys like Charlie Sykes who switched over to the right to push Israel's war. And Jew Sykes has got the microphone. If you wonder why the people of Wisconsin can't get rid of the RINO's, look at Charlie Sykes

And after the Charlie Sykes show, comes the Dave Melnick show, a liberal Jew. And after Dave Melnick show is Doctor Laura, another Jew. After awhile, it occurs to you that everyone on this radio station is Jewish. Without exception. It's what got me started thinking about Jews.

Well, you have plenty to think about.

Just start counting all the dual citizens in the Administration, the State Department, the War Department, Treasury Department, Homeland Security, all the "Investigative Committees", throughout the MIC, the Press and ownership of the media, and even the Supreme Court.

Chuck Schumer is about to take over as Senate Leader for the Dummycrats come January.  20% of Congress is made up of dual citizens, yet Jews are only 2% of America's population.  If Obummer's current Supreme Court nominee should happen to be appointed, we then have 4 Jews and 5 Catholics on the highest Court of the land.  No wonder this country is so far off the tracks laid by our Founding Fathers.  How has a country built by WASPs become such a banana republic rushing to become a 3rd world shithole?

You may be starting to answer that question as you begin your quest.

And the Jew "conservative" Charlie Sykes has turned out to be vocally anti-Trump. Big surprise there

Kobe Beef's picture

We all know the 'D.C.' in Washington stands for Dual Citizen, right?

And we also know Ryan was just waiting for Sheldon Adelson to get back from vacation so he could do whatever the fat casino jew tells him to.

Paul Ryan could get a job doing $10 tricks when he's voted out of office.

That would awesome. Hey... My rifle ain't firing! What the... The safety you focking MORON! We're getting shot at! What now? You shoot back you fucking faggot. But, but, but how do I aim? Mommy! 

boattrash's picture

His name is Nehlen. I believe he'll put Ryan out of work and into the $10 Tricks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcVsuCgYf0U

Edit; I haven't been able to follow it, but Nehlen lost to Ryan in the Primary, not sure if he's on the ticket as a write-in or not.

Trump endorsed Ryan in that primary. (I bet he regrets the hell outta that one).

PS. Nehlen also bought weapons for some Co Sherrif's down on the border, that had  been cut from Fed $$ by the Obama Admin because they refused to "stand down" and obey the "open border" policy.

Fuck Ryan, Obama, and the establishment...

PAUL RYAN just told House Republicans that if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, Republicans can't let her have a blank check in congress

Fuck you Paul. You and your fuck face fellow Congress Persons, have absolutely raped the government check book. Go Jack Off those stupid Badgers who vote you in. You Lie like Hilary

I told all you guys that the GOP itself would try to sink Trump in the end.

Well, here we are.

j0nx's picture

Same shit they did to cucinelli in Virginia. Any time someone runs who wants to rock the boat the GOPe abandons them for the dems. We have got to rid the party of these damn RINOs. Why aren't there DINOs? Dems never abandon their party. The fucking GOP cucks are doing it all the time now to conservative candidates.

HopefulCynical's picture

There don't have to be DINOs. The Democrats are quite candid in their Marxist agenda.

DocBerg's picture

You mean that this weasel is not going to give Hillary the same blank check he and McConnell gave Obama?  I donated as much money to Paul Nehlen as I could afford.  Sadly, he didn't knock this jerk out in the primary.  Ryan is a national disgrace.

Ryan "Will not endorse or campaign with Trump"?

THANK GOD, THANK JESUS FOR THAT!  IT'S A GIFT FROM HEAVEN!  A DAMN MIRACLE!

Urban Redneck's picture

Then tell all your Republitard friends in the Wisconsin 1st that they to hold their nose and vote for Demoncrat Ryan Solen (http://www.solenforcongress.com/) There are two spoilers in the race but since neither has a realistic chance, all voting for them does is divide opposition to Ryan. It's not like there won't be another House election in the district in 24 months, in which to replace the replacement...
