Paul Ryan sticks the knife into Trump – et tu brute?



Paul Ryan couldn’t even wait until after the fall election to stick the knife into Trump. In a revealing “gotcha” piece at the New York Times on Tuesday, Ryan leaves little to the imagination about how he feels towards Trump and plenty of dog food for the media hounds to feast on. There are a number of YouTube media types analyzing the piece out there, I found them all sickening. Yes, the Morning Joe was the worst. I’ll spare you and give you this.

At least they attack Ryan.

Thank you, Paul Ryan, for helping the Democrats sweep the GOP from power in November! It might not have been possible without your help!



Looks like Paul Ryan forgot who was who and in what position. After all, the people spoke and elected Trump, not Paul Ryan.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he’s “very comfortable with the decisions” he’s made during the Trump administration. “I would make them again, do it again the same way,” he told The New York Times in an interview published Tuesday.

Ryan made a determination after Trump’s election that to defy the president too forcefully would invite a counterreaction. He tends to speak of the commander-in-chief as if he were sharing a coping strategy on dealing with a Ritalin-deprived child. “It boomerangs,” Ryan says of being too critical of Trump. “He goes in the other direction, so that’s not effective.” He added, “The pissing match doesn’t work.”


Many have criticized Ryan for his soft approach to criticizing the president’s controversial moves, as he rarely speaks directly in opposition to President Donald Trump’s statements, but the speaker says he’s helped to avoid “tragedy” behind the scenes.

“I can look myself in the mirror at the end of the day and say I avoided that tragedy, I avoided that tragedy, I avoided that tragedy,” said Ryan. “I advanced this goal, I advanced this goal, I advanced this goal.”

When asked exactly what tragedies he’s helped avoided, Ryan returned to his tactical silence: “No, I don’t want to do that,” he told the Times. “That’s more than I usually say.” Read more at

    I think it was a personality thing; I’ve just become acquainted with someone who knows people in the WH and very few are on good terms with Trump. You either get along with him or you don’t…and he’s a strong personality who likes you if you like him and everything he does, apparently. It was disheartening, what I heard, and that’s all I’ll say, but I say this only to emphasize that many people just don’t ‘get’ Trump and it sounds like Ryan’s one of them and they clashed. At least that’s what I’m hoping is the problem.
    I used to be Ryan’s biggest fan. I definitely am still puzzled by his actions…really puzzled because while I don’t know him, I’m usually a better judge of character………..At least he’s not going into the details of the ‘troubles’ he seems to think HE diverted. Thank GOD.

      It wasn’t his job to divert anything that we wanted. A wall, refusing to move bills forward… its for him to get along with Trump not the other way around. Since when does the speaker of the House decide what the country will have or have not. At least allow votes which he refused to do… don’t bring up Ryan to me…

      Ryan was always an “Open Borders” guy who also thinks that impregnating the country with radical Mozlims will somehow “enrich” our society. As for his relationship with George Soros….well, everyone is free to choose their own friends.

    Ryan just had to stick the knife in on his way out the door. I for one am glad to see him go, it is much too late if you ask me.

    Paul Ryan is a member of the weasel family and he shows us everyday. Real men do not lie only weasels do. And a dem running the Republican House is not in the constitution.

        Weasels, Ferrets, Skunks and Badgers are some of my favourite animals. I have share my homes with at least one or tow of them continuously for the past 50+ years. To accuse these noble creatures of being cut from the same cloth as politicians is a travesty.

    Hey TFHS Word Press sometimes makes no sense. I have two ID’s since the first one stopped working necessitating a new one and now O have two; at times one functions while the other doesn’t and vice versa. Runaway technology 😝.
