Trump has referred to this RINO as “a curse to the Republican Party.”
And that is by no means an exaggeration.
There’s a special place in political hell for the coalition of “Republicans” who fail to see Trump’s greatness.
These RINOs are often more ardently anti-Trump than their Democrat cohorts and have done more to sabotage the MAGA movement than any liberal in office.
Paul Ryan is a special RINO in that he was one of the first lawmakers to betray Donald Trump and his legislative agenda. The Former President made his first mistake when he offloaded his legislative goals onto Paul Ryan, who Trump believed was firmly on Team MAGA.
Turns out that wasn’t the case.
Paul Ryan is still singing the anti-Trump tune, using the Jan. 6 farce as a way to renew his hatred for all things MAGA.
He’s also a giant cry baby who actually believes what happened on Jan. 6 was a legitimate insurrection orchestrated by Former President Donald Trump.
According to a new book, Paul Ryan cried as protestors were allowed into the Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021.
Ryan “found himself in tears” and was “absolutely horrified” watching the protest, journalist Mark Leibovich writes in his forthcoming book, Thank You For Your Servitude. The Wisconsin Republican reportedly told Leibovich that he normally doesn’t cry much, but “something snapped in him” on Jan. 6.
According to Leibovich, Ryan never thought former President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud “would come to” violence.
“Ryan figured the president would b**** and moan and maybe make a big show of ‘fighting’ for his supporters for a while. Everyone could feel good and victimized. But eventually Trump would just leave; hopefully, he would know to do this on his own. And everyone could then just get on with their lives,” Leibovich writes.
Leibovich also notes that the former top Republican in the House hasn’t spoken with Trump since leaving Congress in December 2018, and “he expected never to speak to him again.”
Ryan recently backed Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC), who voted to impeach Trump over the events of Jan. 6, in the South Carolina congressional primary.
And does anyone remember the outcome of that primary race?
Rice was trounced by the Trump-backed candidate state Rep. Russell Fry.
When will the RINOs ever learn?
