Trump Has Already Marginalized Paul Ryan

From Politico: “Ryan, who made peace with Trump earlier this month but remains wait-and-see on the question of whether to endorse the presumptive GOP nominee, sees his 2016 job as ensuring that the party doesn’t become a Cult of Trump — he wants to replace id with ideas.”

Like Wily Coyote having already run off the Clift, the true believer of Republican speak, Paul Ryan, better not look down. There is nothing supporting him so far as trying to rein in the Donald.

A disciple of the sophomoric political and economic theories of Ayn Rand, it has yet to sink into Ryan’s head that the base of his party couldn't care less about his mumbo jumbo conservative ideology. This political stab at intellectualism over recent years has been built upon a base of bigoted sand. Trump has taken a fire hose to that sand, collapsing Ryan and his ideological ilk in a tsunami of hate.

The Speaker has no choice but to be sweep along with the rest of the smashed village of conservative “principles.” Trump now fully controls the party that stupidly, Fox News and conservative talk radio shaped.
