President Paul Ryan
I’ve said since last winter, when it first became fairly clear that Trump likely would win the nomination, that Trump hadn’t taken over the GOP, but rather that it was the other way around: Trump is the ultimate Paul Ryan/Heritage Foundation/Koch Borthers Trojan Horse.
I was right. And it’s now, literally, official.
Meanwhile, large numbers of millennials, apparently, remain clueless that that is the situation. And Clinton still doesn’t think it’s important to discuss anything much other than what everyone does already know about Trump.
President Paul Ryan? You must be kidding. Ryan won’t make it through the primaries. The GOP would prefer Cruz or Pence.
Actually, my post refers to the arrangement that Ryan announced today by which he would be the de facto president in a Trump administration, quickly pushing through a budget with huge tax cuts mostly for the wealthy and corporations, sweeping cuts to the social safety net, deregulation of the finance industry, fossil fuel industry, and every other industry, etc.
You do know what a Trojan Horse is, right? Funny how that “change” thing-anti-establishment thing turns out to be just another Trump con.
What is going on is Trump would be the political puppet of Ryan if he wins. Thus all decisions would for the most part be made by Ryan on policies.
I feel that it would be even worse in that those other countries that Trump owes huge amounts of money to will also be calling the shots on legislation. Let us not also forget that Trump has a man crush on Putin and will bow to his will to gain Putin’s approval.
I could be wrong yes, but the real question is it worth voting for Trump to find out? Think of the damage to the American people if Trump listens to just Ryan.
I hope you’re in a swing state. I am.
