Angry supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are calling on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) to resign after he characterized Trump’s attacks on a Mexican-American judge “racist.”
“Politically correct ‘Social Justice Warrior,’ and complete MORON Paul Ryan is busy once again helping his good friends Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by attacking his own parties [sic] frontrunner,” wrote Amy Moreno at TruthFeed.com.
“Thanks to Paul Ryan’s incorrect and hysterical statements referring to Trump as a RACIST, over an issue Ryan clearly does not understand, Obama’s White House is now taking his word as ‘gospel’ and referring to Trump a ‘racist.’” Moreno fumed.
On Tuesday, Ryan was asked for his thoughts on Trump’s repeated attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge presiding over the fraud case against Trump’s scam real estate seminar program, Trump University. The candidate has repeatedly stated that Curiel is incapable of handling the fraud case impartially because he is Mexican American.
Ryan said, “Claiming a person can’t do their job because of their race is sorta like the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
The Speaker went on to say that he plans to support Trump, nonetheless, against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
That was not enough, however, to placate Trump supporters like Moreno.
“What Paul Ryan said about Donald Trump is false. Ryan’s irresponsible comments were based on his own ignorance of the facts, fear-mongering, and outright lies,” she wrote.
“We believe that The Speaker of The House is working tirelessly to usurp the will of the people by lying and slandering the frontrunner of his own party,” Moreno went on. “Based on Paul Ryan’s words and actions we believe he is absolutely incapable of representing his party as Speaker of The House and we are calling on Speaker Paul Ryan to step down immediately.”
Commenters on Moreno’s post appeared to agree.
“Ryan has a knife in his back pocket willing to stab Trump in the back at any given opportunity. Trump is NOT RACIST!” wrote one.
Another said, “Paul Ryan, you are a DISGRACE! You need to step down as Speaker! The only ones you appear to answer to is Obama and his thugs!”
“Traitor Ryan, you are a total FRAUD! You are NOT a true conservative. You want open borders, yet you have a wall around your house and 24/7 security guards protecting your house. But the American people don’t deserve the same?? DUMP RYAN, VOTE FOR PAUL NEHLEN!!” said another.
“RYAN TURNED MUSLIM A FEW MONTHS BACK, HE NEEDS KICKED OUT,” another commenter claimed.
