On Tuesday, former Republican House Speaker and Fox News executive Paul Ryan seemingly gave Pres. Donald Trump advice that nobody in the MAGA movement wanted to hear.
Ryan told Trump it would be better for him to throw in the towel and accept the election results.
Ryan said, “I think maybe even more important is that these legal challenges to the outcome and the attacks on our voting system really need to stop, in my opinion. The outcome will not be changed, and it will only serve to undermine our faith in our system of government, our faith in our democracy.”
Is he suggesting we turn a blind eye to the illegal and immoral manipulation of our election to maintain the illusion that our “system of government” is sound, fair, and unassailable? That’s like the saying “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you” or “read my lips – no new taxes.” Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice…
Ryan, a current member of the Fox Corporation board, gave his remarks at a Bank of America’s virtual European Credit Conference on Tuesday. Ryan also told the audience that the GSA had permitted Joe Biden to begin the transition process.
The disgraced former VP candidate also said the following:
“I personally think it’s in Joe Biden’s best interest — he obviously would not want to hear this — for us to win these Georgia Senate seats, because then he really does have divided government and he really does have to work with both sides of the aisle and you won’t have the building pressure from the left to try and jam the other side.
Joe Biden knows how to work in divided government. He’s a good guy. He’s a very nice person. He keeps his word. Those of us who’ve worked with Joe, we disagree with each other but he’s not a disagreeable human being.
So, he does know how to work in divided government. He does put deals together, and that will be made much, much easier for him to operate like that and bring sides together if we truly have divided government. If we don’t have divided government and they narrowly get the Senate, then frankly I think he’s going to be a much less successful president.”
He also took the time to slam Pres. Trump’s legal team for pushing “baseless conspiracy theories.”
Who gives a Zuck about what Paul Ryan thinks?
President Trump doesn't need to concede to anyone!
