WHAT A TRAITOR! Nobody expected something this sick and twisted from Paul Ryan, but today he showed his REAL FACE. The wannabe “Republican” who spent his last couple of months in the House trying to compromise and sabotage President Trump’s work, once again presented what is he capable of.
Paul Ryan, you just lost the entire support you have from every sincere American patriot.
Speaker Paul Ryan has come out to say he disagrees with President Trump’s decision to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
From The Hill:
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) disagreed with President Trump’s decision to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, The Wall Street Journal reports.
“The speaker does not agree with the decision,” sRyan spokesman Doug Andres told The Wall Street Journal. “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 announced on Friday the president would pardon Arpaio, who had been found guilty of racially profiling.
Arpaio was scheduled to be sentenced in October.
Trump’s decision to spare Arpaio has stirred controversy on both sides of the political aisle.
The ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Dianne Feinstein said on Saturday the pardon demonstrates “flagrant disregard for the rule of law in this country.”
Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) also ripped the decision, however he did concede the president had the authority to make the decision.
“Mr. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for continuing to illegally profile Latinos living in Arizona based on their perceived immigration status in violation of a judge’s orders,” McCain said in a statement.
Ryan’s decision to break with Trump over the decision could add to the growing tensions between the two.
Trump earlier this week targeted Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Twitter, pressuring the Republican leadership to secure that Trump’s legislative agenda, namely tax reform, is able to pass through both chambers this fall.
Ryan and McConnell have already come under fire from the president over the failure to pass ObamaCare repeal and replace legislation.
This really hurts the feelings of all Republicans who ever trusted this man. Well, he is an opportunist, but this time he played the wrong card. Please SHARE this story if you think Paul Ryan is a traitor.
