There was once a time when many believed Paul Ryan was destined to be President of the United States.
Now, he’s just a typical Never-Trump RINO who would be totally irrelevant if not for the Fake News Media’s love for his occasional shots at conservatives.
But prepare to lose what little respect you had left for Paul Ryan after reading this.
Since he left the public eye after being one of the worst Speakers of the House in American history, Paul Ryan has basically been M.I.A.
Well, outside of collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of checks for sitting on the board of the Fox Corporation and being a “vice chairman” for a public relations company tied to a Russian oligarch.
Regardless, after all this time, Paul Ryan has now decided he should probably jump in and capitalize on the “everyone pile on Donald Trump” craze sweeping the global elite.
And he was more than happy to take part in the work of fiction being crafted by left-wing radical and self-proclaimed “journalist” Mark Leibovich.
Leibovich, a staff writer for low-level, left-wing rag The Atlantic, has a new book entitled, Thank You for Your Servitude, in which he makes all sorts of claims about Donald Trump and Republicans’ supposed “cultishness, cartoonish devotion to Trump,” as Vanity Fair put it.
As part of the book, he apparently convinced Paul Ryan to participate, smear people who were supposedly his colleagues and friends, trash the American people, and even claim he cried on January 6, 2001.
His reason for crying, you may ask?
As he told Leibovich, he’s never actually been in the real world, going from college straight to being a Congressional staffer and then into a Congressional campaign, so Washington, D.C. – and more specifically, the Capitol – is home for him, not Janesville, Wisconsin as he’s always claimed.
“I spent my whole adult life in that building,” Ryan told Leibovich. “And I saw my friends, a lot of cops, some of my old security detail — I’m still friends with a bunch of those guys. It really disturbed me, foundationally.”
Of course, retired politician Paul Ryan saying he spent his “whole adult life in that building” is a far different story than the one campaign trail politician Paul Ryan once told about leaving his job as a Congressional staffer to move back to Wisconsin and work for his family construction company when the call to serve just happened out of the blue.
But Ryan claimed that “something just snapped” in him, and he “found himself sobbing.”
Of course, this is on top of his claim last month that “a lot of people” wanted to cast votes to impeach former President Donald Trump over the events of January 6, 2022, like soon-to-be-former Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC), who Ryan campaigned for in the Midterms, yet still lost his primary with less than 25% of the vote.
“There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom but who just didn’t have the guts to do it,” Ryan said in June. “There are a lot of people who say they’re going to vote their conscience, they’re going to vote for the Constitution, they’re going to vote for their convictions but when it gets hard to do that they don’t do it.”
Clearly, Paul Ryan is simply attempting to hop on the current pop culture trend of attacking Donald Trump as the worst human being on the planet.
Of course, he says all these things, but even admitted to Leibovich he would never speak to Trump again, proving once again to be the same coward who wouldn’t grow a backbone when he was Speaker and took his ball and ran home when he wasn’t everyone’s golden boy anymore.
But just like he did in the 2018 Midterms when he announced his retirement and helped advance the corporate-controlled media’s narrative that Republicans were in disarray under Donald Trump’s leadership, he’s here to help the January 6 narrative gain traction in 2022.
If nothing else, Paul Ryan is consistent.
Consistently just another Washington, D.C. elitist.
