House Speaker Paul Ryan finally ended the charade and endorsed the nominee of the Party for which he is Speaker of the House.
“I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives,” Ryan wrote in an op-ed for the Janesville Gazette of Janesville, Wisconsin. “That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall,” Ryan wrote.
Faced, I suppose, with ending his career or endorsing Donald Trump, he chose the latter. And with it, the last bastion of resistance in the Republican establishment crumbled at Trump’s feet.
So great to have the endorsement and support of Paul Ryan. We will both be working very hard to Make America Great Again!
