Paul Ryan is now Literally Hiding from Reporters


Looks like the dizzy, myopic, bonnet-bee-filled Nancy Pelosi will be House Speaker yet again.
The entire media -- and most of the GOP -- have spent 10 months telling us that Mexicans in the United States are going to HATE Trump for saying he'll build a wall. Now they're outraged that Trump thinks one Mexican hates him for saying he'll build a wall.
Other than a few right-wingers, no one denounced now-sitting Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for her "wise Latina" speech, in which she said "our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging."

But Trump is a "racist" for saying the same thing.
It would almost be possible to feel sorry for Paul Ryan, if it weren’t for the Republicans building their entire coalition around hating minorities, women, and queers – but of course, Trump wouldn’t be their nominee right now if they hadn’t. He didn’t do or say anything until it got this bad, and it’s impossible to turn that ship around now, so instead he goes into hiding. lol
@3: there's the law, there's "making a difference", and then there's bias. if Trump really feels Curiel is biased against him, have his lawyers made a motion to have the judge recused from the case?
@3, And here we have the latest right-wing media approach: quadrupling down on Trump's idiocy, topped off with "no, you're racist." This should work out well for you.
@6: my aunt posted as much about bill Clinton last night - "why does Ivanka get asked by the librul meedya about her father and women when Chelsea doesn't get asked why her dad is a pedophile rapist?"
Baume is en fuego
@3: This is a terrible interpretation of her words, which is a reflection of how she evolved as a person into a qualified judge. She never once said -- or even gave the barest suggestion of saying -- that her background gave her an excuse to be biased against non-Latinos. It's not that hard to tell the difference between such things if you read more than tweets and talking points.
@2 Is just a racist troll like most commentors on the slog, in case you may have missed the comments posted for every single article involving a person of color.
Is my faith misplaced that reporters will manage to remember to ask Paul Ryan about pledging his support to someone he himself declared as a racist when Mr Ryan does finally resurfaces to run for president in 2020?
I got a vibe this morning that Trump was going to call Ryan his veep pick. I think it's going to be a DC insider, and I narrowed it down to Gingrich or Ryan. Ryan's MIA, then, huh? Hmmmm.
it's possibly one of the worst anti-poverty plans since "let them eat cake."

Lol. I like your style, Mr Baume.
Methinks Baume has Ron and Rand Paul on the brain. Journalistically referring to Paul Ryan with a single name should default to "Ryan," not "Paul," wouldn'tcha think?
@15: Rand Paul Ryan works for me.
@15, yeah that was weird.
@15-17 I recall in 2012 confusing Rand Paul, and Paul Ryan, I just renamed them both Bruce to avoid confusion.

@1 Raindrop it is long past time for you to take off your Republican tribal shades. If Pelosi was a Republican you'd be singing her hymns to her.
Take a step back and very deep breath, then reassess how many of your comments are just knee jerk Republican tribalism and how much is You actual thinking through the issues.
