Paul Ryan Advises Democrats on How to Beat Trump?
It looks like Paul Ryan is competing with Hillary Clinton and has joined the speaking circuit. Was this his first speech “on how to beat Trump in the 2020 election?” Rumor had it that he did receive under the table money during his time on the hill and even tried to get food stamps after retiring. Really?
I wander if they enforced the ten-minute rule for his speech? The way to enforce it is to put a trap door under the speakers’ rostrum, and after ten minutes it flies open and then Ryan drops through the floor onto a mattress.
Democrats and Republicans should remember that at Gettysburg in 1863 there were two speakers – two orators – Edward Everett and Abe Lincoln. Everett spoke for two hours and Lincoln for about three minutes. Lincoln’s address is still remembered somewhere, but the Democrats seem not to have learned their lesson.
A twenty- or thirty-minute speech might be all right – if only you had to listen to one speaker; but, from what we see coming down the pike – it might take days to just get through the speeches.
A country that can put a man on the moon surely can build a trap door. It is a shame there wasn’t one built for citizen Paul Ryan.

Remember this guy, Paul Ryan, the RINO? He is back and continuing to work for the Democrats against the American people and President Trump.
‘The person who defines that race is going to win the race…’
Paul Ryan Reportedly Said – No Chance for Border Wall.
Former Speaker Paul Ryan thinks there are some Democrats in the 2020 field who can defeat President Donald Trump in a general election.
At a Monday speech in Vero Beach, Fla., Ryan briefly outlined the playbook for Democrats to topple Trump and make him the first one-term president since the early 1990’s — namely, make the race about Trump’s personality.
If Trump relies on his personal brand to win, instead of stressing his policies, he could lose, Ryan suggested.
“The person who defines that race is going to win the race. If this is about Donald Trump and his personality, he isn’t going to win it,” Ryan said.
Ryan had a notoriously rocky relationship with the president throughout their two years working together.
Even after tepidly endorsing him in the summer during the 2016 campaign, Ryan repeatedly denounced things the president said. At one point, Ryan reportedly considered rescinding his endorsement.
But when Trump was president, Ryan learned to let the White House — not him — answer for Trump’s controversial remarks and to stay mostly in the background.
Ryan has kept out of the spotlight since retiring from Congress in January, where he had been speaker since 2015. He served in the House for 20 years.
The Michigan Republican reflected on the achievements and failures during his time at the helm of the House GOP, including passing a sweeping tax code overhaul in 2017 and failing to hammer through a repeal of the 2010 health care law known as Obamacare.
Ryan pinned blame on the conservative House Freedom Caucus for holding up his chamber’s bill, drawing out the overall Obamacare repeal process and giving Democrats time to mobilize public support against the GOP’s efforts.
(As usual, blames his failure on others.)
(Ryan was working behind the President’s back with Mitt Romney during his tenure as Speaker. It was certainly evident.)
“That three-month delay eroded public support for it, so by the time it got over to the Senate, it was hanging on a thread,” Ryan said.
If the HFC did not delay the House’s repeal version, Ryan thinks it would have passed the Senate.
In his speech Monday, which focused mainly on policies and not presidential politics, Ryan advocated for stronger border security; a solution for so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children who grew up here; and restructure the U.S. visa program to fill workforce needs instead of bringing over extended family members of people already in the U.S.
It is a shame we didn’t have the reconciliation process in service to verify how much bribe money he took home. Sure don’t miss this traitor to the American people. If you happen to run across him – just give him a big fat “THUMBS DOWN.”
