Paul Ryan Caves, Endorses Trump

We see what you did there, you little chicken.

Paul Ryan made a weak endorsement of Donald Trump in a weak-kneed op-ed published just as Hillary Clinton kicked off her foreign policy speech highlighting Trump's incompetence earlier today.

It's almost as if he was trying to hide his cave of less-than-4-week-stand against the presumptive Republican nominee.

He wrote:

As I said from the start, my goal has been to unite the party so we can win in the fall. And if we’re going to unite, it has to be over ideas.

Donald Trump and I have talked at great length about things such as the proper role of the executive and fundamental principles such as the protection of life. The list of potential Supreme Court nominees he released after our first meeting was very encouraging.

But the House policy agenda has been the main focus of our dialogue. We’ve talked about the common ground this agenda can represent. We’ve discussed how the House can be a driver of policy ideas. We’ve talked about how important these reforms are to saving our country. And we’ve talked about how, by focusing on issues that unite Republicans, we can work together to heal the fissures developed through the primary.

Through these conversations, I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives. That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall.

That #NeverTrump movement on the Republican side is pretty pathetic, isn't it?

Weak, Speaker Ryan! Very weak! Sad!
