Trump-loving CNN pundit gets brutally mocked after claiming Paul Ryan's retirement is bad news for Democrats
Former Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) on CNN.

Although most Republicans see House Speaker Paul Ryan's decision to not run for another term as deeply ominous for the House GOP, Trump-loving CNN pundit Jack Kingston has other ideas.


Kingston, a former Republican congressman from Georgia, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that Ryan's impending retirement is actually bad news for Democrats because it means they won't be able to run against him in this fall's midterm elections.

"Speaker Ryan's retirement perplexes Dems as now they have no one to attack," Kingston wrote. "Meanwhile Dems will have to defend Pelosi."

Even though Democrats will likely not be able to run against Ryan, Kingston fails to mention that President Donald Trump is historically unpopular at this point in his presidency. In fact, as FiveThirtyEight documents, Trump's average approval rating at this point in his presidency is lower than any other president in recent history, dating all the way back to Harry Truman.

Kingston's followers noted this omission and instantly buried him in ridicule -- as of this writing, Kingston's tweet has over 700 replies and merely 17 "likes."
