If Donald Trump is going down, he's going to try to bring down everyone else with him.
In a furious tweet storm on Tuesday, Trump ripped House Speaker Paul Ryan for his "weak and ineffective" leadership and accused him of being disloyal for saying on Monday that he was finished defending Trump's candidacy.
Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476188217.0
Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476191153.0
Even more ominously, Trump declared that Ryan's betrayal had freed him from his "shackles" -- and he could now campaign for the presidency without any kind of filter at all.
It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476194438.0
He then went back to trashing the party that nominated him for president for not sticking by him 100% after his infamous "pussy grab" video leaked last week.
With the exception of cheating Bernie out of the nom the Dems have always proven to be far more loyal to each other than the Republicans!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476195310.0
Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win - I will teach them!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476197309.0
Trump has never been a model of restraint, so his vow to throw away whatever previous inhibitions he had likely means that the final month of the 2016 presidential campaign is going to be absolutely filthy.
