The GOP is breaking itself against Donald Trump

The former guy took projection to a whole new level Friday, when the biggest curse tied around the neck of the Republican party in its history actually had the nerve to call out Paul Ryan as being a curse to the Republican party.

On Thursday, Republican and former speaker of the house Paul Ryan delivered a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, wherein he warned the Republican Party of the political perils it will face if it continues on its current path of obvious fealty to Trump.

“If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere,” said Ryan. He generally criticized Trump’s grip on the Republican party without calling him by name, but indicated that GOP voters would “not be impressed by the sight of yes-men and flatterers flocking to Mar-a-Lago.”

Trump fired back at Ryan on Friday, in a written statement issued through his political action committee, Save America, with some familiar name-calling, stating Ryan was a “RINO” (Republican in name only), and blaming Ryan and Mitt Romney for losing the White House to President Obama years ago, while Trump just lost it – along with the House and the Senate – mere months ago.


Ryan “has no clue as to what needs to be done for our Country, was a weak and ineffective leader, and spends all of his time fighting Republicans as opposed to Democrats who are destroying our Country”, Trump spewed in his written statement. But on top of his usual tired criticisms, he also laughingly stated, “Paul Ryan has been a curse to the Republican Party.” Don’t worry Trump, you will always be the Republican Party’s King of curses, even long after you and your kind have destroyed it completely.
