Breitbart just went after Paul Ryan for his attack on Trump’s handling of the decision of whether to Pardon Joe Arpaio, and it is ugly. Ryan made headlines Saturday when his camp released the following statement:
“Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.”
Now, Bannon’s Breitbart News went for Ryan’s jugular in a Sunday morning message. Breitbart released the following:
“Ryan’s move to throw in against the president’s decision comes along with several Democrats, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi among them, leveling similar criticisms.”
“This comes after Ryan similarly threw in with leftists to criticize President Trump’s response to Charlottesville, running to leftist media outlet CNN to say in a town hall that the president “messed up” during his press conference at Trump Tower in New York City earlier this month when he bashed the media and violent leftists as well as neo-Nazis and the KKK.”
“Ryan’s decision to continue undermining the president in key moments of his presidency matches his behavior during the campaign. Ryan is not someone who has ever been supportive of the president. He actually, as Breitbart News reported earlier this year, encouraged fellow Republicans to abandon the president’s campaign against failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton in October of last year in the home stretch.”
This is just the beginning of this ugly feud as Republicans realize if they want to salvage any shred of their dignity, they need to begin distancing themselves from trump as all the moral people did months ago.
Good luck, America.
