Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) reportedly told House Republicans that they could feel free to abandon President Trump after a tape of him making vulgar comments emerged during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Ryan made the remarks in what was described as a rare conference call three days after the “Access Hollywood” tape emerged in October 2016, according to an excerpt from the new book “A Hill to Die On” by Politico’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer, as reported by Axios.

“I am not going to defend Donald Trump,” Ryan said, according to the book. “Not now, not in the future.” Ryan’s office said at the time that the congressman was “sickened” by Trump’s remarks.

  1. Other people were sickened by Ryan’s ineffectual leadership of the House. But maybe he felt his job was to protect the interests of campaign donors.

  2. All the chachomim above reflexively jump on Ryan as, in their opinion, a bad politician.

    SO THAT MEANS IT IS OK TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS A M’NUVAL?!?

    What are they thinking? You wouldn’t and shouldn’t let this creep within daled amos of your daughters, yet you are satisfied that he is your leader?

    What has the Yeshiva Velt come to?

    • And what about your local grocer? The person sitting next to you on the bus? The guy behind you in the bank? Etc… How do you shatz up a creep?

  3. Mittens Romney was a joke. He was so petrified of being called a racist by Don Lemon, that he threw the elections to Obama & Holder. Ryan also folded like a cheap camera to Joe Biden at the VP debate. Loser loser loser.
