Although many Republicans, including former Governors Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry, have came around to supporting Donald Trump, many continue to voice their concerns about the presumptive GOP nominee. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan can be counted amongst those who are withholding their support.
“I’m just not ready to do that at this point,” the Speaker said to CNN about endorsing Trump. “I’m not there right now.”
“I’m not ready to support Speaker Ryan anymore,” Sean said of the Ryan’s comments on Thursday’s Hannity. “I’m thinking maybe we need a new speaker.”
Speaker Ryan isn’t alone. Over at The National Review, David French has declared that the Republican party is in ruins. French writes:
A minority of its primary voters have torched its founders’ legacy by voting for a man who combines old-school Democratic ideology, a bizarre form of hyper-violent isolationism, fringe conspiracy theories, and serial lies with an enthusiastic flock of online racists to create perhaps the most toxic electoral coalition since George Wallace. Then — to add insult to injury — multiple GOP leaders bulldozed the ashes by issuing nauseating calls for unity, foremost among them Reince Priebus…Reince, you should resign rather than spending one more ounce of personal energy supporting a reprehensible man.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich joined Thursday’s Hannity to discuss the hesitancy of some Republicans to throw their lot in with the real estate mogul.
“The pseudo-intellectual right-wingers who have made a living in Washington DC being brilliant while they alienated the entire American people are showing you by their hysteria the degree to which they are being repudiated, and they just absolutely don’t know what to do,” Gingrich explained. “The country has looked at their lack of achievement, their lack of effectiveness and said ‘no.'”
Gingrich also addressed the fact that both former President’s George W. and H.W. Bush, and Mitt Romney will not be attending 2016’s RNC convention.
“There’s something wrong here when these folks, who the Republican party has done a lot for — let’s be clear, the Bush’s, the Romney’s, the Republican Party has been pretty darn good to them — they owe a little bit tot he party and the people who make up that party beyond their own ‘being above it all.'”
