Ryan Trump: Paul Ryan, the dimwit, decides to go head to head with Trump.
Ryan Trump: Sayonara Paul Ryan. Stick your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye. Paul Ryan decides to take on Trump. Seeing what’s happened to everyone else who’s decided to take on Trump, this almost certainly will not end well for Ryan.
The Arrogance of the Prom King

Just when you think you’ve heard and seen it all in the Republican campaign then, along comes prom king Paul Ryan displaying an arrogance that makes Donald Trump look like the Dalai Lama by comparison. Millions of American jaws must have dropped in unison when chameleon Ryan casually told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he’s “just not ready” to support Trump.
Really? Where do I even begin to address such a remarkable display of unflinching arrogance? How about just stating the obvious — that the litmus-test conservative crowd still doesn’t get it.
That’s right, hard as it is to believe, after ten months of watching Trump swat every political fly who’s annoyed him, the pathetic “Never Trump” crowd really and truly still does not understand what’s taking place in America.
Specifically, what they don’t get is that this is a genuine revolution. And it’s not a revolution about Trump. It’s a revolution about the corruption and arrogance of the leadership of the Republican Party — and, on a broader scale, the entire Washington political establishment.
That’s right, it’s taken eight long and destructive years, but the Republican Party’s base is now in full revolt against the Ryans, the McConnells, the McCains, the Grahams, et al. You’d have to be blind, deaf, and stupid — or totally delusional — not to have figured that out by now. Nevertheless, the guys who have run things for decades have chosen to stubbornly remain in a state of denial.
They do not understand that the so-called leadership is not the Republican Party. The Republican Party is the Republican voters. Had party leaders been able to do so, they were fully prepared to ignore the will of their rank-and-file members at the Republican National Convention in July and use their crooked, self-serving rules to get their way.
Now, since Trump put Cruz and Kasich on the canvas much earlier than expected, their state of self-righteous panic has quickly intensified and they’re talking about forming a third party. LOL. Would that they would actually do it because it would be yet another episode of Road Runner Trump versus Wile E. Establishment. And, as with the real Road Runner and real Wile E. Coyote, it’s Wile E. who always end up on the losing end of these clashes.
There are three things about which you can be certain if the panicked Republican ex-leadership actually moves forward with a third party:
- It will give Trump yet another big boost in the polls.
- They will lose badly to Trump in the general election.
- They will forever be persona non grata in the new Republican Party that they once controlled. Talk about poetic justice.
Who in the hell does Paul Ryan or any of the other Never-Trump RINOs think they are to proclaim that Trump will have to prove to them that he’s willing to adopt their platform? Attention all RINO wusses: Trump steamrollered everyone in the field because he refused to go along with your ideas! . . . (more)
