Trump Blasts Paul Ryan: “Couldn’t Get Him Out of Congress Fast Enough!”


The Washington Post published excerpts from a new book by Tim Alberta this week that included some frank assessments of the Trump presidency from former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). In the book, Ryan reportedly says that when Trump came to Washington, he was a man without direction or clue about how to govern. In Ryan’s account, he was one of the ones who guided the president in the early days, preventing him from making decisions that would undermine the GOP message.

He also took some shots at the president’s character.

“We’ve gotten so numbed by it all,” Ryan says in the book. “Not in government, but where we live our lives, we have a responsibility to try and rebuild. Don’t call a woman a ‘horse face.’ Don’t cheat on your wife. Don’t cheat on anything. Be a good person. Set a good example.”

At another point in the book, Ryan talks about Trump’s early days at the White House: “I told myself I gotta have a relationship with this guy to help him get his mind right. Because, I’m telling you, he didn’t know anything about government . . . I wanted to scold him all the time.”

Ryan told Alberta that without him there to steer the ship, Trump’s presidency had drifted into recklessness.

“Those of us around him really helped to stop him from making bad decisions. All the time,” Ryan says. “We helped him make much better decisions, which were contrary to kind of what his knee-jerk reaction was. Now I think he’s making some of these knee-jerk reactions.”

Unsurprisingly, President Trump did not take kindly to the criticism. In a series of tweets on Thursday night, he blasted Ryan for his failed run at the top of the Republican congressional caucus.

“Paul Ryan, the failed V.P. candidate & former Speaker of the House, whose record of achievement was atrocious (except during my first two years as President), ultimately became a long running lame duck failure, leaving his Party in the lurch both as a fundraiser & leader,” Trump wrote.

“He quit Congress because he didn’t know how to Win,” the president continued. “They gave me standing O’s in the Great State of Wisconsin, & booed him off the stage. He promised me the Wall, & failed (happening anyway!). He had the Majority & blew it away with his poor leadership and bad timing. Never knew how to go after the Dems like they go after us. Couldn’t get him out of Congress fast enough!”

We’re guessing these two aren’t going to be “doing lunch” anytime soon…

  1. I once like Paul Ryan, and maybe his book will make him a bigger millionaire then he was when he left Congress. That said:

    Ryan lied to Trump, Ryan lied to all the people in this country, and I must say so did the Senate Leader McConnell, when Trump won the Presidency they (Ryan and McConnell) rode Trump’s policies to get reelected. Oblish Oblaimercare, fix the border and immigration, fund the wall. I must give McConnell credit for finally joining Trump appointing Judges and a couple other legislations, but had these two men not try to sabotage Trumps actions and do what they said they would do, JUST imagine what they could have accomplished in Trumps first two (2) years in office.

    This book, is a killer for Paul Ryan, it does not hurt Trump on iota, yet it proves his lack of actions just because he did not like Trump! What Ryan forgot is the fact that people voted for Him, a lot of other Repub House members just to get Trumps polices legislated, and he failed. The mid terms showed the results of his failing the People, Trump and the Repub party as the people reacted to his failings. Unfortunately it took 2 years for those in Congress to see what the people elected them to do, but inaction, lack of supporting Trump, and down right obstruction was too much for the people to bother voting.

    And now what do we face? A Communist surge in the Demon party, the swamp rats running amuck, the deep state still committing upheaval with fake news, doing everything they can with the Media to obstruct Trump and his policies the people want, so instead of making history doing well in the House of Representatives his legacy will be failure.

  2. This guy Ryan what a POS he was this scum bag did nothing when he was in office he lost at running for president so he hates trump he couldn’t carry trump jock strap no disrespect to mr trump who I think is the greatest president America ever had stay sir

  3. Wow…
    Ryan leaves congress, and:
    1) economy is better
    2) unemployment is LESS
    3) FINALLY going to do something about ILLEGAL ALIENS…
    Ryan…
    What a piece 0′ shlt…

  4. I am curious about how Ryan feels about Pelosi, Schumer, Aoc Talib, and the rest of the socialists. He did not help the country when he was in and certainly didn’t help Trump. If it weren’t for him and his cohorts we would have had the wall long ago.

  5. Most all of our elected Representatives are professional liars and if you do your due diligence you would find many that have questionable character flaws beyond any everyday citizen you meet on a daily average.

    Paul Ryan happens to be one who likes for you to feel he is still an all American boy who should still remind you of an Eagle Scout. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  6. Along with the other R.I.N.O.s (like John McCain) that have left , the Party is better off without enemies inside the camp.

  7. It’s curious to note that once Ryan has left Congress, the country’s economy and international relations have improved and still improves on a daily basis.

    That, in spite of sabotager Pelosi riding shotgun over the Executive Branch, and the incessant harassment by the Mueller investigation, then one understands the real damage Ryan inflicted on the American People.

    He’s a disgrace and him casting himself as the fairy godmother with pixie dust in his book, is typical Democrat self aggrandizing and wishful thinking. Like the rapist claiming he satisfied the victim’s inner needs by raping her.

    Paul, go home and stay home. You have been more corrosive to the American nation than Pelosi, Nadler and Hillary combined, because you successfully masqueraded as a true American while twisting the knife in this nation’s stomach with glee.

    Fortunately, Trump rode into town and all your BS are falling off like leprosy as it does from all Democrats. What finally gave you away was your arrogant claim that you had to guide Trump to make sound decisions. That took the cake for blatant, shameless and arrogant stupidity. Where were you after you lost Congress? How come the economy is better, international respect and cooperation are at an all-time high? Where were you when Trump built up a multi-billion dollar empire?

    What a sleazebag.
