May 12 2016: Paul Ryan after meeting with presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, declined to endorse Trump, and said this:
“I don’t want us to have a fake unification process here. I want to make sure that we really, truly understand each other and that we are committed to the conservative principles that make the Republican Party, that built this country.”
May 25, 2016:Two weeks later, Paul Ryan says that he won’t be rushed into endorsing Trump.
May 25 - Jun 02, 2016: Donald Trump criticised New Mexico Republican Governor Susana Martinez in Albuquerque, offered to debate Bernie Sanders if the price is right and then backed out of debate with Bernie Sanders, verbally atacked Federal Judge, told California farmers that there is no drought in California, and went on a lengthy rant against Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel again accusing him of being ‘Mexican’.
Jun 02, 2016: Such impressive demonstration of leadership by Trump during Ryan's deliberation was enough for conservative intellectual heavyweight, Paul Ryan to rush to endose Donald Trump.
Jun 03, 2016: Paul Ryan denounces Trump's comments about the Federal Judge. What is this all about?
Donald Trump's nasty comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel were made on May 27th, and May 29th, before Ryan endorsed Trump. So, Ryan endorsed Trump fully aware of Trump's comments, but just wants to 'pretend' that he is shocked. Why would the media fall for this pretense?
Trump is a brash, unrefined con-man, Ryan couches his con with fancy words. Ryan routinely peddles peddles deep spending cuts to social programs in the guise of reducing deficit, while growing deficit with tax-cuts to the top 1%.
In Trump, Ryan may have met his equal. Ryan's Kabuki dance with Trump, while entertaining, is also scary.
