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.
