Paul Ryan Attacked Trump Over David Duke, And Trump SWUNG BACK!

Paul Ryan

I think it’s pretty pathetic that politicians think they have the right to determine who should be nominated for president while dismissing the will of the people. After these primaries, the people have shown who they desire.

So what gives the so-called leaders in Washington, DC the authority to do this? If it were happening to them, they would be raising holy hell, but since Donald Trump is not one of them, they only want to keep him out.

That’s why lap dog Paul Ryan decided to attack his own party’s presidential frontrunner:

From Fox News:

The speaker delivered rare remarks on the raucous Republican primary battle during a press briefing, as Super Tuesday voting got under way. While not mentioning Trump by name, Ryan’s comments were clearly directed at the GOP primary front-runner’s initial wavering when asked Sunday about his support from former KKK leader David Duke.

Ryan said Tuesday he tries to stay out of the “day-to-day ups and downs of the primary” but, “when I see something that runs counter to who we are as a party and as a country, I will speak up.”

He said wants to be clear:

“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. … I hope this is the last time I need to speak out on this race.”

While Trump wavered on condemning the support from Duke on Sunday morning, he had initially disavowed it and has done so since, as he tries to put the controversy to rest.

Trump said Monday he had not understood the interviewer who first raised the question about Duke, and he did later repudiate him.

“How many times do I have to continue to disavow people?” he said.

The controversy has proved a distraction for Trump as he remains the favorite to win the overwhelming majority of contests on Super Tuesday, when 11 states award 595 delegates in the Republican primary contest.

Trump responded to a question about Ryan during his Super Tuesday victory speech on Tuesday night:

Paul, just so you understand, WE are fed up with the establishment politicians, just like you, on both sides of the aisle. Trump is not a lot of Americans’ “favorite” candidate, but guess what? The party has offered no alternatives.

Ted Cruz is talking about alleged Trump mob ties, while Marco Rubio is talking about Trump’s hand size in relationship to his private parts.

Wake up, the people are speaking, are YOU listening?
