Ryan Says He'll Step Down From Convention If Donald Says To

Lap Dog or Three Dimensional Chess Player? You decide!
Ryan Says He'll Step Down From Convention If Donald Says To

Yeah, if I was Paul Ryan, I'd want nothing to do with the Donald Trump Republican Coronation, either. The Hill:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says he’s willing to relinquish his duties as chairman of the Republican National Convention in July if Donald Trump requests it.

“He's the nominee. I'll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Ryan said during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday.

Ryan on Monday also ruled out supporting a third-party candidate, even if it’s Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee who tapped Ryan for his running mate. He called the idea “a disaster for our party.”

Yet Trump downplayed the need for party unity in order to win the general election in November.

“I think it would be better if it were unified, I think it would be – there would be something good about it,” Trump said in an interview with ABC’s “This Week” that aired Sunday. “But I don’t think it actually has to be unified in the traditional sense.”

Now that it looks like it's going to be less like a Hatfield and McCoy brawl and more like the crowning of Miss Universe (Huuge and Truly Classy, "A lot of people have told me it's going to be a very classy event") why would any Republican with the mere glimpse of a future in public life want to go?

Maybe Trump will pick noted wingnut and former game show host Chuck Woolery to host the convention.

We liberal bloggers can hardly wait for Cleveland.
