Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, I’m launching an all-out attack on your career – which is exactly what Donald Trump did when he took to his Truth Social platform to blast former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Saturday.
Former President Trump referred to Ryan, 52, as a ‘pathetic loser’ as he called for him to be removed from the board of Fox News.
Trump’s social media post came after Ryan declared Republicans didn’t have ‘the guts’ to vote to impeach the former president in the wake of January 6.
Trump hit back with ‘Did anyone notice that Fox News went lame (bad!) when weak RINO Paul Ryan, who is despised in the Great State of Wisconsin for being ‘a pathetic loser,’ went on the Fox Board.’
While criticizing Fox News, Trump said that the network ‘won’t even talk about an obviously Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, not even a mention.’
Trump continued: ‘That’s why our Country is going to HELL – Elections have consequences. Get Ryan off your Board and report the news as it should be reported…And stop taking negative ads from the perverts, and others!!!’
Trump did not name any ads specifically that he felt were supporting perverts.
According to the Daily Mail, in a May 2021 statement, Trump was equally critical of Ryan saying: ‘As a Republican, having Paul Ryan on your side almost guarantees a loss, for both you, the Party, and America itself!’
Trump added that Ryan was a ‘curse to the Republican Party. He has no clue what needs to be done for our country.’
Those remarks came after Ryan delivered a speech at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California. Ryan said, without naming Trump: ‘If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere.’
Ryan said that voters wanted Republicans with ‘independence and mettle.’ He also said that those voters would ‘not be impressed by the sight of yes-men and flatterers flocking to Mar-a-Lago.’
