Donald's Attempt to Drag Speaker Paul Ryan

Donald J. Trump doesn't want to support, back, or flatter Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan [R] Wisconsin. Trump has been accused of being associated with white-nationalist, who planned to use the Republican Party to solidify their agenda nationwide, allegedly. The plan didn't quite work out that way. And the delivery of such rhetoric has been offensive to most Americans.

They fashioned the title as "Summer of Trump," during the election process. It would have worked to Steve Bannon's advantage had they not picked a 'loose cannon' who has portrayed himself over the last year as a racist, bigoted, misogynist with the statements that were being made. Some of the headlines on the website are full of baseless accusations, untruthfulness, and unwarranted indictments of anyone moving or breathing.

Between the 'birther movement,' which the GOP never had a problem with prior to now, did not allow President Obama to present a budget, did not allow his confirmation of a Supreme Court pick, who was nominated in March, Judge Merrick Garland, after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Some of the most obvious disrespect came by comments and pointedly, the actions of former Governor Brewer of Arizona, seen pointing her finger in the President of the United States face while he was on the tarmac in Arizona.

How can we forget the voice in the background during at the State of the Union address of President Obama, when Congressman Joe Wilson yelled out 'liar' on the House floor? It had never been done before; to any sitting President, no matter what the House or Senate believed about the president. With this and other repulsive, and insolent comments, and gestures-we heard crickets from Republican leaders.

Was it an error in judgment when House Speaker Paul Ryan backed an outsider candidate? The Speaker was free of any backlash and could have faced the criticism at the time. Yet, against his own instincts he backed a person he said he didn't know very well. It has the same similarities as the situation that Senator John McCain found himself when he selected Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008. Decisions like these are not to be taken lightly. Nor should they be made in a hurry. As we see, they can be catastrophic.

It is obvious to me that no matter what we do, this election is going to have shades of vindictiveness, mean-spirited, malicious, bitter, and cruel consequences. The people behind the scenes will be exposed after the election is over with. In going forward, House Speaker Ryan is going to feel the heat after the election for his ill-fated choice and wobbly endorsement. The stinging words of wise men say, "What goes around comes around." In this election, I think we can freely determine this might be the case in 2016.

In closing, the country has to come together whether it wants to or not, because when it is all said and done, we are the ones that will be left to find a job, keep our job (if we have one) and cut the grass, manage our bills, pick up the groceries, and pay our taxes. There is no way around those facts.
