(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Establishment RINO hack and failed GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is up to his old tricks once again, calling himself a “never-again Tumper,” the Gateway Pundit reported.
Paul Ryan, who tried for his years as the House Speaker to sabotage President Donald Trump from 2017-19, announced in an appearance on ABC’s This Week what everybody already knew: that he does not like Trump.
In fact, as early as 2017 Ryan was already publicly announcing his disdain.
“I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future,” Ryan said at the time.
But this time, Ryan added fuel to the fire, suggesting that Trump is a loser who will lead the Republican party astray.
“I’m proud of the accomplishments [during the Trump administration] — of the tax reform, the deregulation and criminal justice reform — I’m really excited about the judges we got on the bench, not just the Supreme Court, but throughout the judiciary,” Ryan told ABC host Jonathan Carl.
“But I am a Never-Again-Trumper. Why? Because I want to win, and we lose with Trump. It was really clear to us in ’18, in ’20 and now in 2022.”
Ryan, desperate to get someone from the establishment into office, followed the Republican line regarding the recent midterms, blaming Trump for the failures of several candidates, several of whom Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., failed to support.
“I personally think the evidence is really clear,” Ryan said, of a situation that was far from clear.
“The biggest factor was the Trump factor … I think we would have won places like Arizona, places like Pennsylvania, New Hampshire had we had a typical, traditional conservative Republican, not a Trump Republican,” he added, going out of his way to pass over any suspicions of vote fraud in Arizona or Pennsylvania.
Despite his accusations, many believe that Ryan himself spent years leading the party astray.
