It’s all for show. Someone had to stand up and pretend to tell the rest of America that Republicans are not as crazy as they seem, and Paul Ryan was the chosen one.
After Donald Trump basically embraced former KKK leader David Duke with his initial refusal to reject Duke and the KKK, Paul Ryan was tapped to try and convince Americans that Trump was wrong.
“If a person wants to be a nominee of the Republican Party there can be no evasion and no games,” said Ryan in one of the party leadership’s most pointed attacks on Trump.
“They must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry … This is the party of Lincoln. If someone wants to be our nominee, they must understand this.”
Ryan’s rebuke of Trump came as voters in 11 states headed to the polls on Super Tuesday. Prognosticators believe Trump will win the majority of delegates up for grabs on the busiest day of the battle for the nominations in both parties.
