‘Thank you, Paul Ryan’: Scottie Nell Hughes says Ryan ‘helps’ Trump by throwing him under the bus

Published

on

Donald Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes lashed out at Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Monday after the Republican Speaker of the House said that he would no longer defend the GOP presidential nominee.

A spokesperson for Ryan said on Monday that the Speaker would cease promoting Trump’s campaign and instead “spend the next month focused entirely on protecting our congressional majorities.” Ryan, however, stopped short of revoking his endorsement of Trump.

“Has Paul Ryan ever defended Trump?” Hughes scoffed moments after the news broke, pointing to the fact that Ryan retracted Trump’s invitation to a weekend event after a video tape surfaced showing the billionaire bragging about sexually assaulting women.

“There’s been a large disconnect between Washington, D.C. and the people,” Hughes continued. “These campaigns this year are all about being the anti-establishment, anti-status quo, something that Paul Ryan represents. This does no damage. If anything, the actually helps.”

“Thank you, Paul Ryan,” the Trump surrogate said, turning to the camera. “If you’re not going to help us, good luck.”

According to Hughes, Trump could not be blamed if Republicans lose their seats.

“It’s because they didn’t represent their voters,” she concluded.

The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates

Published

President Donald Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

"President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts," The Washington Post reported Saturday.

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’

Published

on

On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.

"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."

The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.
