Hey Paul Ryan, Here’s Proof That Donald Trump Represents Exactly What Your Party Stands For

speaker-paul-ryanSince announcing his candidacy, Donald Trump has led the field of GOP presidential candidates running a campaign based on bigotry, racism, sexism, disrespecting veterans, bullying reporters and mocking a writer with disabilities – and conservative voters have loved him for it.

But to listen to “establishment Republicans,” or at least those closer to party leadership – and even many conservative pundits – they’re “shocked” by some of what Trump says and certainly don’t believe that his views represent their party.

House Speaker Paul Ryan even weighed in, stating in part, “What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for.”

Excuse me?  These people are joking, right?

Clearly, Donald Trump is saying exactly what the majority of conservatives believe and want to hear.

It is completely ridiculous for Republicans to sit there and claim that Trump doesn’t represent the values of their party… while he’s remained the overwhelming frontrunner for their party’s presidential nomination for the last several months.

How exactly can someone not represent the values of a party when the majority of supporters of that party support that person for their presidential nominee? That doesn’t make any sense.

But the truth is, Republicans like Paul Ryan are in denial. Trump’s rise isn’t shocking to anyone except those who haven’t been paying attention. His rhetoric – while far less tactful – isn’t all that different than what we’ve heard from other Republicans and the conservative media in general for years.

Just look at this list of absurdity coming from the Republican party and conservative media:

Yet, with all of that, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other leading Republicans have the nerve to claim Trump’s views aren’t a true representation of GOP values?

Give me a break.

Either Paul Ryan is lying (most likely), he’s in denial or he hasn’t been paying attention to what’s been happening to his party. Because I hate to break it to Speaker Ryan, but Donald Trump perfectly personifies exactly what the Republican party has become and the type of conservatives I deal with all the time.

You p.o.s. traitors, white man hating scumbags, the eyewitness of the supernatural has a curse on you satanic destroyers of mankind!

    • callie

      Here we have a fine example of the typical Trump supporter, ladies & gents. Ignorant, angry & inarticulate

      • Richard cianfrone

        Oh teach me articulation, you scumbags never answer the illegal alien crime problem! You and all you demoncrates and repugnant can’t are the cancer in America. God and man hating witches. Callie what kind of name is that? Trump is not a politician, keep playing the race card , your corruptors are pleased. Cocaine traffickers like Clinton’s and Bush’s and their pimp obuma. You must be an ugly slut, callie. You feeling chest pains yet? Revelation 11:5. Go away, an illegal alien bullet should find your filthy face. Every family you desecrate who are victims of the f#== madness of the amnesty touting traitors.

      • Dartsblaster2011

        Alas for YOU, Mr. Cianfrone, hmmm, what kind of name is THAT anyway? What tribe are you from? Sioux? Never mind, the fact is that MOST undocumented workers or people that overstay their visas are VERY law abiding since if apprehended by law enforcement, they might be deported after they serve their sentences and THAT is what they seek to avoid at pretty much any costs. How illegal an alien was Dylan Roof? Cliven Bundy? David Koresh? Charles Manson? Jefferson Davis? Robert E Lee? and yes, the above list constitutes all criminals and/or traitors.

      • BobJThompson

        demon crates? Surely you mean demoncrats. lol
        Even when you’re trying to be articulate and smart you fail.

      • Richard cianfrone

        Demon crates is the acronym for demonstrating entertainment, on going nothingness, coercing radical anarchism, treason suspects. Repugnant can, relentless enslaver, pagan, ungodly goading narcissistic tyrants. You have a greenworm ffrom hell eating your depraved mind! Again asshole, do we need to import more criminals? 20 million oh boy their not all killers right? You must be a f#= paid troll. Trump isn’t a corrupt politician, what do weasels like you disagree with? You want every Muslim on earth to just come right into America? Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, and the great General Washington would hang shits like you. Why the f#= do you think Jackson got Spain out of Florida? You f#== assholes want the enemies here! You believe in the supernatural? That some people have been in their presence? Watch your health. Trump for president. Jesus saves.

      • Americaner Than Thou

        I don’t know whether to flag this comment or to frame it.

      • Richard cianfrone

        Frame it. Answer, Americans out of work, terrorism going unchecked at open borders, manufacturing jobs going overseas for tax shelters, 20 million illegal aliens granted amnesty so they can have 10 kids each and have 200 million more citizens in America in twenty years? What are you idiot’s disagreeing with Trump on? you want Hillary rotten ham Clinton? Bernie Sanders? And all the rest of the anti American amnesty touting idiot traitors? If you can’t respond with a coherent rebuttal do not f#= waste my time.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        You left out George Bush, Dick Cheney and every other repube. What have repubes ever done to mitigate these issues? Ever?

        And now you want to install a racist .00001% who knows nothing about governing? GTFO Go back to your doomsday bunker and don’t come out until you hear the all clear sirens…..

      • Richard cianfrone

        I never took a psychotropic drug in my life, you shimmy foreign shit. I’d deport a scumbag like you in a new York minute. For 20 years I’ve exposed big pharmaceuticals industry for the hell they are. Bush’s, Cheney, obuma and all that ilk are Satanists. Masturbating perverts and global conspirators. Do you know who Andrew Jackson was? That’s why we with a fuckin brain want Trump. Go back to your shithole country. The supernatural heard your filthy American hating mouth. So, go find your bedpan and morphine drip, you detested scrum.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Seriously, nobody with even a half functioning brain wants Trump anywhere near the White House. NOBODY. And you would have a heck of a time deporting me as I am retired Army, born and raised here. Where would you send me?

        This is the problem with douche bags like you. You literally think that people who don’t think or look like you are traitors even though you are very much in the minority. You are exactly the type of person who represents everything that is wrong with this country today. You are the traitor and a worthless piece of garbage, just like Trump. The time has come for you to just leave and stop effing up this country. BTW, why can’t Trump find an American wife? Do you also hate American women the way trump does? Nothing like pretending to “love” the country except can’t stand the people….. I’ve got news for you. Your boy will never be President. Let that sink in for bit….

      • Richard cianfrone

        Race card! I’m Italian you rag headed maggot. You fucking faggot whore. If Italy was a shit hole like Mexico and your pagan country I would say the same about Italians if they were running across the border like roaches.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Just leave my country. You are not welcome here.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        BTW, how old are you? No person over the age of 18 talks like that. Grow up little boy

      • Richard cianfrone

        Your afraid, there may be hope for you. Look I take no pleasure in the wicked being destroyed. I found 20,000 translation errors in the new testament. How many lay people you think looked up every Greek word in the new testament? 1 Timothy 6:10 the root of all evil is filarguria, Greek definition is avarice, why does English b.s. say love of money? 2 Thessalonians 2:6,7,8 three major translation errors are katexon, the Greek definition is occupation, English says restraints, oidate, Greek definition is swelling, English b.s. says ye know, arti, Greek definition is completely, English, just now! You see when the occupation is swelling completely, then the lawless one comes out of the midst of, that’s the beast of revelation. 18? +50. If I would lie about seeing a supernatural vision I would never have advanced in these studies. Congratulations you just learned what 99 percent of the government conspiracy preacher’s don’t know. Open your mind man, this is very real. Jesus saves.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        translation errors in the New Testament? Who cares. How about the fact that it is based on 1st century mythology….. Don’t know why you would need to translate fiction and pretend like it actually has meaning or that it pertains at all to today… but whatever tugs on your bobber little fella. Good luck in your delusions. You need it.

      • Richard cianfrone

        Your an atheist? An indian atheist, weird. Mythology? O.k. if you say so I guess I’ll quit. American politics oh teach me, swammy. Your ancestors were apes? You believe that? You started the venom. So go on with your delusions and don’t write me again. You and your little whores, like calle and Thompson.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Good luck talking to your imaginary friend in the clouds. Stop writing to me you kooky mouth breather

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        LMAO…up the meds and seek help Rick, and please don’t shoot up a school today. Your family is worried about you.

      • BobJThompson

        Don’t you have a Trump rally to go assault people at? People like you are why atheism is on the rise. You must be so proud.

      • Richard cianfrone

        Atheism is on the rise because I revealed the true translations? I’m working now, honest construction work. You p.o.s. foaming from your Godless mouth. Who contacted you? You and your ilk were screaming for barrabas. Go away and watch Trump win.

      • BobJThompson

        No. It’s because they don’t want to be associated with hateful swine such as you. Pharisee.

      • Richard cianfrone

        If you were here now I’d beat your satanic face in! You scumbag. Get cancer. If you’re in San Francisco let me know. You left wing maggot. Don’t write me scumbag. You epitomized the whore Babylon.

      • Richard cianfrone

        The whore that raised you is a swine whore, go to your satanic preacher and watch your rotting carcus spew the filth in you. I guarantee you will be afflicted with a disease soon. You are worst than all these maggot atheist on this p.o.s. thread.

      • BobJThompson

        Here’s your illegal alien reply. Easily debunked.

        THE CLAIM: Undocumented immigrants kill 25 Americans a day.
        THE PURVEYORS: U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), in a May 5, 2006, column on his website, claimed that a day without immigrants would create a far safer America: “The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day. Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals.” King’s claim has been repeated hundreds of times, sometimes by extremist activists like Clyde Harkins of the American Constitution Party, and frequently by radio hosts like Peter Boyles of Denver’s KHOW-AM. Boyles also suggested last year that illegal immigrants had murdered 45,000 American citizens since Sept. 11, 2001.

        THE FACTS: King claimed he had “extrapolated” his numbers from a study by the General Accounting Office, Congress’ nonpartisan investigative arm, that he said showed 28% of inmates in local jails and state and federal prisons were “criminal aliens.” What the GAO study actually showed was that 28% of all federal prisoners (federal prisoners make up 12%-17% of the total incarcerated population in the U.S.) were either legal or illegal immigrants. The study did not distinguish between legal and illegal immigrants. It also stated that about 50% of those immigrants were only charged with being in the country illegally, a federal misdemeanor. Just 12% of the total in federal custody were there for murder, rape, robbery or other violent crimes. Regarding the claim of 45,000 Americans murdered by illegal immigrants, FBI statistics show some 85,000 murders from 9/11 to the end of 2006. If the claim by Boyles and others were true, that would mean undocumented immigrants, who make up under 4% of the U.S. population, were responsible for 53% of all murders.

      • callie

        Lol, look everybody, right wing word salad!

        And this person is throwing around bible verses? Wow

      • Carol Adams

        Yep, there’s the usually name calling topped off with threats, usually from the bible. Par for the course.

        BTW, I like the name Callie, however it’s spelled.

      • congero

        On full display.

  • Rob Lane

    Oh no, not a curse!!! Why I better go down to the church and have my spirit cleansed…

  • Americaner Than Thou


  • Jim Valley

    Trump, Carson and Cruz in particular sound EXACTLY like the unhinged comments from delusional conservatives I read in these comment sections every single day. This IS the republican party. This IS the conservative movement.

    You made this sandwich, Paul. Now eat it!

  • Melissa

    Just a guess, but I think Richard Cianfrone must be a member of the Westboro Baptist church. Preaching hatred and death to those that don’t agree with them. I’m sorry you are so miserable Richard. When you learn to be civil you can join the adult conversation
