Hannity rips ‘pathetic’ Ryan for snubbing Trump

Sean Hannity on Thursday blasted Speaker Paul Ryan for withholding his support from Donald Trump’s White House run.

“I’m not ready to support Speaker Ryan anymore,” Hannity said on last night’s program. “I’m thinking maybe we need a new Speaker.”

In a series of earlier tweets, the Fox News host ripped Ryan hours after the Wisconsin Republican said he wasn’t ready to endorse the party’s presumptive nominee.

Trump’s final two opponents for the GOP nomination, Ted Cruz and John Kaisich, dropped out this week, but Hannity said Ryan, the highest ranking elected Republican nationally, was ignoring the will of the people.

Ryan on Thursday said that he is not yet capable of supporting Trump as the Republican standard-bearer next fall.

“To be perfectly candid with you…I’m just not ready to do that at this point,” he said on CNN’s “The Lead.” “I’m not there right now.”

Trump counterpunched later that evening, commenting that he remains skeptical of Ryan’s agenda in Congress.

“Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people,” he said in a statement. “They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!”

Trump on Tuesday won Indiana’s GOP presidential primary, clearing the path to become the party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

The billionaire’s bruising nominating race, however, has left many Republicans swearing they will not back him heading into next November’s general election.
