Jake Sherman: Paul Ryan ‘Spent the Entire Campaign Calling Donald Trump a Racist
SHERMAN: "I hope not. I'll take issue a little bit with what Frank said and agree with Joe. Paul Ryan, if you remember, spent the entire campaign calling Donald Trump a racist. His office said when asked that the voting system was completely legit. The guy was elected a month ago. I think what Paul Ryan is doing, frankly, is giving him an ounce of breathing room, and I think that Paul Ryan will call him out. If you're listening to what he's saying, he's saying we're not for a tariff on American companies that's going to cost Americans -- it's going to boost the cost of a lot of goods. I'm not one to defend Paul Ryan. I've been very sharply critical of him. I think he deserves it. He's the top elected official on Capitol Hill. I think what he's trying to do is he's trying to salvage some relationship with the guy he spent the last six months dumping on every single day."
