Ugh… Paul Ryan Lectures Trump on Putin and Assange: Hopefully He’ll “Get Up to Speed” on Russia
Those Republican elites are a hard nut to crack.
Today Speaker Paul Ryan (who still believe he was elected to lead the GOP and nation, not Trump) went on with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt to discuss Russia and Julian Assange.
Ryan lectured PEOTUS Trump on “getting up to speed” on Russia and accused Assange of being a “sycophant for Russia.”
The Daily Mail reported:
Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt said Wednesday morning that he couldn’t support Assange’s contentions, and Trump shouldn’t either.
‘The guy is a creep. He’s wanted on a rape in Sweden. I don’t trust a word he says. He is a Russian front,’ Hewitt said.
‘Anyone who believes anything Julian Assange says, you just have to ask yourself: When are you going to wake up to the fact he’s a very bad guy?
He said that Trump ‘does not need to elevate and in any way rely upon a creep like Assange.’
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan agreed.
‘Hopefully he’ll get up to speed on what has been happening and what Russia has or has not done, and he’ll get better informed on that,’ he said of Trump.
Ryan added his belief that Assange ‘is a sycophant for Russia. He leaks, he steals data and compromises national security.’
Obviously, Donald Trump needs to give Paul another lecture on who’s in charge now.
