Speaker Paul Ryan was elevated to his current position against all conventional wisdom of the Right who viewed him as a younger version of John “Whiner” Boehner. When he was voted in, there wasn’t a Republican in the party who was proud, happy, or satisfied with that one-sided decision.
Regardless, the Establishment, led by the Swamp RINOs decided that, since they couldn’t seem to get a winning ticket in the presidency, they might as well hedge their bets and go against the very wishes of their constituency by nominating the very epitome of the Establishment Republican.
With fanfare and smiles from the Swamp RINOs, Ryan took the job. Since taking the job, he has insulted President Trump personally on quite a few different issues since Trump’s election win. Remember how he would not endorse our president? Now, he has done it again. He’s siding with the Liberals once more to say that he opposes the pardon of Sheriff Arpaio.

Speaker Ryan condemned President Trump for pardoning 85 year-old Joe Arpaio.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
House Speaker Paul Ryan on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump for pardoning a former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, becoming the highest-ranking Republican to object to the move.
“The speaker does not agree with the decision,” said Ryan spokesman Doug Andres. “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.”
The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about Mr. Ryan’s statement.
On Friday, the White House announced that the president had pardoned Mr. Arpaio, known as an immigration hard-liner who had been sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years before he lost a re-election bid last year.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio epitomizes a tough, no-nonsense law enforcement officer who captured the imagination of the nation back more than a decade ago when he demanded that the work details from the prisons wear pink clothing to humble them. He also ensured that they had no weights for lifting, no cable, no internet, and no unlimited access to the phones to harass regular citizens.
As it turns out, Ryan is caught within a very tough reelection campaign in his own state and this precludes any notion of fairness, logic, and evidence. His campaign requires moxie, and standing against President Trump, with a willingness to kiss the collective butts of the Liberals is a recipe for a loss. What a coward.
