House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., will not campaign with or defend Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump through the November election. He had previously condemned Trump’s 2005 comments leaked by Clinton surrogates wherein Trump talked about grabbing women in their “Pussys” and other areas. Clinton backers leaked the bus tape to offset some damning Wikileaks emails that exposed Clinton’s deceptions about her association with Wall Street bankers and her rise above the middle class: Clinton has campaigned on a theme that she identifies with the “everyday” common citizen–the leaked emails suggests that she personally eschews
Politico reported, “Ryan stopped short of formally rescinding his endorsement of Trump.” Many Trump supporters have warned that Ryan would pay the price for his desertion.
Truth be told, Paul Ryan has never engaged himself to Trump’s candidacy. He has acted more nervous than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs every since Trump started gaining traction in the Republican primary. It is not a question of Ryan taking the higher ground or his stated goal to protect other Republicans running for office.

With friends like Ryan, you don’t need enemies.If Trump does win the election, and he may, he should remember who his true supporters were.
