Attention House Speaker Paul Ryan: the honeymoon is officially over.
Remember how GOP members of the house virtually begged Ryan to become Speaker of the House when John Boehner resigned and Kevin McCarthy declined the job? Well, now they’re saying he’s not really a conservative and even accusing Ryan of being a secret Muslim. Want proof? Take a look at that beard Ryan’s growing.
President Obama must be sitting in the Oval Office and laughing his ass off!
What most enraged those on the far right is that Ryan dared to cooperate with the White House and Democrats to pass the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill earlier this month. Apparently this was a treasonous act because Republicans are always wanting to shut down the government.
Here’s some of what has been posted online about Speaker Ryan recently:
As it happens, President Obama has indeed taken note of what the right wingers are saying about Ryan and his “Muslim beard.” Ryan even brought it up at a recent meeting with the President:
“As Ryan and Obama were putting the final touches on the spending deal, the now-bearded Speaker told the president that some on the right have accused him of being a Muslim, Al Hunt recounted in a Bloomberg View column.
“The president, who has long faced the same absurd allegation, chuckled.”
Hey, Paul, the verbal and online abuse is almost over for the President. How long can you take the same he’s had to endure for seven years now? Better grow a thick skin along with that new beard.
