Paul Ryan Attempts To Stop The GOP - KKK Tryst Rumors?

House Speaker Paul Ryan sounds really convincing. Yeah.

Nice try, Mister Speaker. Everybody knows the KKK and the GOP were married to each other by Lee Atwater after a long courtship, and the wedding was only delayed because the couple were considered first cousins. But nevermind that.....

Shorter Paul Ryan:

We can't have a candidate who says out loud that the KKK is a good thing. It's like everyone has forgotten the code! Party of LIncoln! Party of Lincoln! Nevermind that our Southern primary exit polls today will show the vast majority of our voters think Barack Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, and that more than half feel suppressed by "political correctness" of not being able to say the N word out loud at Chick-fil-A, and will fight to the end for the right to deny wedding cupcakes to gays because religious freedom!

Notice I didn't say KKK or Muslim or Trump or Kenyan in my remarks. THAT'S how you do it! Party of Lincoln! Mic drop!

For real, Speaker Ryan did re-affirm that he will support the Republican nominee, thereby erasing everything he just said in this video.

Can you help us out?
