In today’s political world that’s usually dominated by whatever lunacy is going on with Donald Trump and his dumpster fire of an administration, it’s easy to overlook exactly how terrible quite a few other Republicans are. For a while, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) easily topped my list as the member of Congress I loathed the most. He was the most dishonest, conniving, soulless bottom-feeder who seemed like someone who’d sell his own mother to the highest bidder if it helped his chances at becoming president. His image wasn’t helped any when he eventually went crawling to kiss Trump’s backside even after the current “Commander-in-Chief” disgustingly attacked his wife and father.
Again, soulless bottom-feeder who’d do damn near anything if he thought it helped his political career.
However, if you’re going to ask me who’s the most despicable member of the Republican Party, it’s really difficult to argue against Speaker of the House Paul Ryan taking that title. This gutless coward is quite a piece of work.
There are plenty of examples I could use to showcase Ryan’s lack of humanity. However, I’m not sure if anything does it better than his pathetic response when asked about Trump’s public threat against former head of the FBI James Comey:

Excuse my language, but fuck you, Paul Ryan.
I’m so sick of the GOP treating the American people like we’re a bunch of morons.
I’d like everyone to notice how Ryan went from talking to people like we’re all stupid enough to believe Trump’s daily social media outbursts don’t matter, to pivoting toward the factual reality that he had the power to fire Comey.
But that’s beside the point.
Nobody is denying Trump had the authority to fire the head of the FBI. That’s not the controversy here, even if that’s how Republicans are trying to spin it. The issue here is Trump firing the head of the FBI mere weeks after he testified publicly that Trump’s campaign was under investigation for possibly colluding with the Russian government during the 2016 election. We’re legitimately looking at a situation where a key individual who’s connected to an investigation for possibly committing treason against the United States had the power to fire the person in charge of overseeing the law enforcement agency that’s mostly responsible for conducting that investigation.
It’s yet another example proving what a gutless coward Paul Ryan is. Even when it’s obvious that, deep down, he knows Donald Trump has no business leading this country, he doesn’t have the courage to stand up for his country in the face of one of the biggest national security threats in our history.
