Do you remember Paul Ryan?
At one time he was a worthless Republican Speaker of the House.
Paul Ryan pushed the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement to ensure the last remaining manufacturing jobs would move over to east Asia. Thank goodness Donald Trump came along and put a stop to that lunacy.
Paul Ryan allegedly refused subpoenas to investigate the Deep State players who ran a coup against President Trump.
Paul Ryan allegedly punished Devin Nunes and removed him from his committee chair position after he told President Trump about the Obama spying.
Paul Ryan repeatedly promised to fund the Trump border wall — he repeatedly lied.
Paul Ryan later slammed Republicans who did not vote to impeach President Donald Trump in January 2021.
And Paul Ryan announced he would hold fundraisers for toxic Never-Trump Republicans Adam Kinzinger AND Liz Cheney.
And now in his new book Paul Ryan said he “found himself sobbing” on January 6th.
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan was so “disturbed” by the events of the January 6 riots that he “found himself sobbing” while watching the events on television.
Ryan, a Republican, told journalist Mark Leibovich for his forthcoming book “Thank You For Your Servitude” that he often did not cry but “something snapped in him” that day.
“I spent my whole adult life in that building,” Ryan said, according to a copy of the book read by Insider. “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.”
Ryan wrote a letter to the security team, the book says, “figuring they could use all the love they could get right now.”
“He never thought it would come to this,” Leibovich wrote in the book. “That was what most Republicans said. Ryan figured the president would bitch 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.”
But Leibovich reported in his book that Ryan was evasive when he asked him whether he had been complicit during Trump’s presidency.
