Let’s face it: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has a bit of a shoddy history when it comes to conservatism and politics.
Ryan seemingly straddles the line between swamp snake and sacred blessing on a weekly basis, having once been a committed “Never Trumper” who has since capitulated in the wake of the President’s resounding successes. Yet, by no mistake, many Americans are still weary of the speaker’s republican street cred.
As if to dispel any lasting rumors of his own RINO-disguise, Paul Ryan has been extremely vocal in the aftermath of yesterday’s horrific school shooting in Florida, pushing back against those who wish to exploit these 17 deaths for their own liberal, political purposes.
“’There’s more questions than answers at this stage,’ the Republican lawmaker said in an interview with Tom Katz on Indiana radio station WIBC about the mass shooting less than 24 hours earlier.“’I don’t think that means you then roll that conversation into taking away citizens’ rights – taking away a law-abiding citizen’s rights. Obviously this conversation typically goes there. Right now, I think we need to take a breath and collect the facts.’”
