Paul Ryan: A Profile In Courage
By: Meredith Kelly
At his weekly press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan took a real stand on the state of the Trumpocalypse. By that we mean he spoke for the first time in months using multiple sentences about the absolute circus happening at the top of his Party’s ticket.
Ryan did condemn the KKK, David Duke, and anyone that fails to disavow them: “Today I want to be very clear about something, if a person wants to be the nominee of the Republican party, there can be no evasion and no games, they must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry. This party does not prey on people’s prejudices. We appeal to their highest ideals.”
This is it! Donald Trump has gone a step too far, even for Paul Ryan; he’s about to say that Donald Trump does practice evasion and play games when it comes to groups built on bigotry, and he can’t be the nominee. Paul Ryan is about to take a courageous stand on behalf of House Republicans. I won’t support Trump as the nom…
“I plan to support the nominee,” Ryan continued.
On the morning of Super Tuesday, we know what that likely means. A NBC News poll shows that Donald Trump has 40 percent support among registered Republicans, a massive lead over Marco Rubio’s 21% and Ted Cruz’s 18% heading into today’s game-changing primaries.
