On ABC's Good Morning America, Donald Trump once again blasted the Speaker Paul Ryan for not supporting him, but threw out a new conspiracy theory when he said, "maybe he [Paul] wants to run in four years."

During the interview Trump started off by saying, "I don't want to be knocking Paul Ryan," which is code for he does really want to be knocking Paul Ryan.

He continued, "I think he could be more supportive to the Republican nominee. We're doing well. I think we're going to win the election."

Reporter asked, "Do you think he wants you to win the election?"

Trump said, "Well, maybe not because maybe he wants to run in four years and maybe he doesn't know how to win. Maybe he just doesn't know how to win."

That's it, yeah.

They're all out to get you, Donald!

PS. Jay Rosen comments on the interviewer, ABC's Tom Llamas. Rosen is right.
