House Speaker Paul Ryan isn’t doing the Republican Party any favors these days. In an appearance on “Face the Nation,” the Republican decided it was appropriate to slam President Donald Trump and his supporters… right before midterm elections. What was he thinking?
Paul Ryan went on national television and told liberal host John Dickerson that the Trump-led GOP is like “Alinsky.” He also claimed that the GOP embraces “tribal identity politics.”
What would motivate Ryan to say something like this right before the midterm elections?
He really needs to just go crawl under a rock at this point.
Breitbart News reported, “Sunday on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he believed conservatives have embraced ‘tribal identity politics,’ in the style of leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky.”
The show’s host John Dickerson asked Ryan, “You’ve seen some President Trump’s rallies, do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us or are they — do they do something very successful in politics which is sow division in the country? Do you see that happening at his rallies?
House Speaker Ryan stated, “Sometimes, yeah. Not always but sometimes. I worry about tribal identity politics becoming the new norm of how politics is waged. As conservatives, we always thought this was sort of a left-wing Alinsky thing. Unfortunately the right practices identity politics as well. It’s the day and age, technology and everything else, identity politics which is now being pack practiced on both sides of the aisle is unfortunately working. I think we as leaders we got to figure out how do we make inclusive aspirational politics strategically valuable again.”

This is totally unacceptable, and Paul Ryan should know better than to trash fellow Republicans with the midterm elections approaching so rapidly… or ever for that matter.
