    Trump camp suggests Ryan unfit to be speaker

    Trump camp suggests Ryan unfit to be speaker

    If Paul Ryan can’t support Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, he isn’t fit to be House speaker, Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said Friday.

    The House leader who will chair the Republican National Convention this summer told CNN on Thursday he isn’t ready to support Trump “at this point” but added that he wants to and hope to be able to.

    Trump, however, fired back with a statement Thursday remarking that he isn’t ready to support Ryan’s agenda.

    “If the Republican speaker of the House does not come around to supporting the Republican nominee, do you think that Paul Ryan is still fit to be speaker?” CNN’s John Berman asked Friday.

    “No,” Pierson responded, “because this is about the party.”

    Ryan suggested the onus was on the real estate mogul to show he can unite the party, but Pierson argued otherwise, noting that since Trump has yet to clinch 1,237 delegates, he’s only the presumptive nominee.

    “We are a party. Paul Ryan needs to be a — he’s the leader right now,” Pierson said. “We’re told Donald Trump is only the presumptive nominee. He’s not the nominee until 1,237. So really it’s incumbent on Paul Ryan to help bring unity to the party.”

    Trump is scheduled to meet with Ryan next week, where the businessman is likely to tell Ryan that by refusing to support him, he’s also going against the will of the people.

    “Well, I think he’s gonna talk to Paul Ryan and just say look, you are not just against me. You are against a lot of your voters, and this is something that has been indicative,” Pierson said. “For the last couple of cycles you have had the leadership rejecting its own voters, silencing them, ignoring them, campaigning on one issue and not following through, and that’s why we have a nomination of Donald Trump.”

    Pierson said the last two Republican presidential nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney, weren’t true conservatives, but conservatives “were told to hold our noses and vote for the sake of the party.”

    “These same people are now telling us that because their guy didn’t win, they want to hurt the party,” she said. “The issue here isn’t about Donald Trump. If you can’t hold yourself to the standard that you hold everyone else, the problem is with you.”

    Why yes, and there you have it. Paul Ryan who was too stupid, too young and too arrogant to know his limitations has now been put on the Trump "You're Fired" list.

    Ryan is wrong on all the policy issues from Trade and Immigration to Social Security and more, which makes his failure to support the people's choice for the Republican nominee whose policies on these issues are right, a glaring part of his enormous flaws as a member of Congress and Speaker of the House, leaving him absolutely no leg to stand during his exit interviews.

    There's a huge likelihood that Ryan will be BOOED and told "YOU SUCK" at the Convention.

    And, of course, rightly so.

    Unfortunately, Sessions is in the Senate instead of the House. He would be a great Speaker though if he was. Maybe he should go for Majority Leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell's position?

    Maybe so.

    Sessions is doing a great job as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. Maybe he should stay where he is for the best results.
