Former Governor, reality TV personality, and failed Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has been making the rounds stumping for Trump. She was on CNN this morning discussing Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his reluctance to endorse Trump’s presidential run.
And she isn’t too pleased with her fellow former VP nominee:
Via Washington Examiner:
“I think Paul Ryan is soon to be ‘Cantored,’ as in Eric Cantor,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said on CNN’s “State of the Union” in reaction to the House speaker’s statement that he is not ready to back Trump for president.
She was referring to Eric Cantor, the Republican House majority leader, who was upset in a 2014 primary in Virginia by challenger Dave Brat.
“His political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people,” said Palin, a Trump supporter.
She also offers her theory as to why Ryan isn’t jumping on the Trump Train:
The former Alaska governor suggested that Ryan’s hesitancy to endorse Trump stems from his own ambitions.
“It kind of screws his chances for the 2020 presidential bid that he’s gunning for if the GOP were to win now,” she said. “That wouldn’t go well with his chances in 2020,” Palin added.
Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, faces a primary challenge from Paul Nehlen, who endorsed Trump soon after Ryan’s announcement.
“This man is a hard-working guy, so in touch with the people,” Palin said. “Paul Ryan and his ilk, their problem is they have become so disconnected by the people whom they are elected to represent.”
“They feel so threatened at this point that their power, their prestige, their purse will be adversely affected by the change that is coming with Trump and with someone like Paul Nehlen, that they’re not thinking straight right now,” Palin said.
