Trump torches Paul Ryan after he says GOP ‘didn’t have guts’ to impeach, calls for FN board ouster

Former President Donald J. Trump unloaded on ex-congressman Paul Ryan with both barrels after the Fox News board member said that many Republicans wanted to saddle up with the Democrat impeachment mob but “didn’t have the guts to do it.”

Trump who frequently clashed with Ryan when he served as Speaker of the House of Representatives slammed the former Wisconsin congressman as a “pathetic loser” and called for him to be ousted from the Fox News board in a scathing attack posted on Truth Social.

Ryan, who was Mitt Romney’s 2012 running mate on what was possibly the most uninspiring Republican party ticket of all time, raised Trump’s ire when campaigning for Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina who was one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach him on the second failed attempt, he said “There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom but who just didn’t have the guts to do it.”

“There are a lot of people who say they’re going to vote their conscience, they’re going to vote for the Constitution, they’re going to vote for their convictions but when it gets hard to do that they don’t do it,” Ryan added according to the Myrtle Beach Sun News.

“Tom Rice is a man of conviction,” Ryan said. “Tom Rice is the kind of person you want in Congress.”

Fighting words and Trump came out swinging.

“Did anyone notice that Fox News went lame (bad!) when weak RINO Paul Ryan, who is despised in the Great State of Wisconsin for being ‘a pathetic loser,’ went on the Fox Board,” he wrote. “They won’t even talk about an obviously Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, not even a mention.”

“That’s why our Country is going to HELL – Elections have consequences. Get Ryan off your Board and report the News as it should be reported. And stop taking negative ads from the perverts, and others!!!” Trump said.

Trump did not elaborate on who he was referring to as perverts.

Ryan also attacked Trump’s loyal supporters in Congress during his speech to a small crowd of Rep. Rice’s supporters at the Hotel Florence in Florence, South Carolina.

“This is just such a crystal clear case where you have a hard working, effective, senior member of Congress who deserves reelection vs. people who are just trying to be celebrities who may be trying to help Trump with his vengeance,” he said.

“That’s not who voters want, voters want people focused on their solutions not on Trump’s vengeance and that to me is a really clear cut case here,” Ryan added.

In February, Trump endorsed South Carolina state Representative Russell Fry who is running against the impeachment turncoat Rice.

“Congressman Tom Rice of South Carolina, the coward who abandoned his constituents by caving to Nancy Pelosi and the Radical Left, and who actually voted against me on Impeachment Hoax #2, must be thrown out of office ASAP -and we have just the man to do it in American First Champion Russel Fry,” Trump wrote in a statement released by his Save America PAC.


“I am here because this man is a work horse, I am here because Tom Rice is a loyal man,” Ryan said as he delivered his endorsement. “He is loyal to his constituents, he is loyal to his conscious, he is loyal to our founding principles and he is loyal to the Constitution.”
