Judge Jeanine Pirro adds her voice to the increasing chorus of those asking that the disloyal, dysfunctional and disruptive Paul Ryan step down from his position as Speaker of the House. None of us every really liked Ryan and most of us have been very critical of him much of the time. He has no accumulated good will among virtually any segment of the Conservative or Republican base that might help to counter his current vulnerability. His background of subterfuge and opportunistic assaults on the American people and our leaders in service to those who are working to destroy our nation and enslave is catching up with him. Hit the road, Ryan, and don’t cha come back no more.
Judge Jeanine says it clear and straightforward, “Paul Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill. The one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress. The one that had to be pulled to prevent the embarrassment of not having enough votes to pass.”
“But this bill didn’t just fail,” says Jeanine. “It failed when Republicans had the House, the Senate, the White House. And the timing? It failed within the first 70 days of President Donald Trump’s administration. A President who made replacement of Obamacare the hallmark of his campaign and then used valuable political capital to accomplish it.”
Judge Jeanine says, “You know, Americans elected the one man they believed could do it. A complete outsider, someone beholding to no one but them. And Speaker Ryan, you come in with all your swagger and experience and you sell him a bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure. And you allow our President, in his first one hundred days, to come out of the box like that? Based on what, your legislative expertise?”
She then proceeds to give Ryan a complete dressing down, asking, among other things, “How could you possibly misjudge this?” She wonders “and where was the whip Scalise in all of this?” Both good questions that she is surely still waiting for an answer to.
Exposing potentially even more deliberate damage by the duplicitous Ryan, Judge Jeanine says, “Mr. President, all reports are that you wanted to handle the tax cuts first, but that Ryan convinced you to go with healthcare. If that’s the case, not only has he hurt you with this healthcare debacle, but the ripples that will hurt you as you try to overhaul the tax code will come back at you.”
She attacks the Freedom Caucus who many conservatives find to have acted heroically in their opposition to this bad Ryan bill, saying, “The Freedom Caucus, feeling emboldened by their win with this healthcare failure, will now dig their heels in on the tax cuts.” They’re not the monsters you think they are, Judge. They won’t dig their heels in unless there’s a very good reason to do so, such as saving the 2018 election cycle from a horrible replacement of Obamacare that didn’t do what the American people had demanded.
Judge Jeanine declares, “Ryan has hurt you, going forward, and he’s got to go,” and she’s rightly suspicious of his motives and whether this was a calculated failure purely intended to damage the President. She closes with a warning, “The American people won’t forget this and neither should the President.”
