REPORT: GOP Lawmakers Revolted Against Paul Ryan’s Plan to Sabotage Trump
On Friday, the Clinton Campaign (Washington Post) released video of Donald Trump bragging about grabbing p*ssy in an off the record conversation with Billy Bush in 2005.
The Clinton campaign and media ran with it despite the fact that Bill Clinton has sexually abused several women for decades and was even forced to pay over half a million dollars to one of his accusers.
The Los Angeles Times reported hours after audio was released of Donald Trump making sexually suggestive comments about a woman, that House Speaker Paul D. Ryan castigated Trump and said he would no longer attend their scheduled event on Saturday.
“I am sickened by what I heard today,” Ryan said in a statement. “Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”
Paul Ryan was scheduled to campaign with Trump for the first time on Saturday.
It never happened.

On Sunday Donald Trump crushed Hillary Clinton in one of the most lopsided debates in political history. It was a brilliant performance. Trump made everyone forget about the WaPo tape.
On Monday Paul Ryan sabotaged Donald Trump again and changed the political narrative.
Ryan announced he will not campaign with or defend Donald Trump for the rest of the election cycle. This was an odd statement from Paul Ryan considering he has not defended Donald Trump all year.
On Tuesday Rep. Steve King said Republican lawmakers revolted against Paul Ryan’s plan to sabotage Donald Trump.
Iowa Rep. Steve King rebuked House Speaker Paul Ryan during a Tuesday interview on “The Laura Ingraham Show” for saying Monday that he would no longer defend Donald Trump and would no longer campaign for the GOP nominee.
Though he fell short of officially pulling his endorsement, Ryan flatly confirmed he would no longer stand up for his party’s nominee on a conference call held with fellow Republican Congress members Monday. Instead, Ryan said he intends to focus his efforts on maintaining a Republican majority in Congress…
…“And, without naming names, I’ll give you generally the theme: ‘We need to stay with Trump. It hurts us all if we don’t do that. If we let him sink, we all sink with him,’” King told Ingraham. “I didn’t hear anybody defend that position — Paul Ryan’s position — although, you know, it was a short sample … And so that’s the sense of it.”
