Author: Paul Ryan saw retirement as an 'escape hatch' from Trump "He didn't know anything about government I wanted to scold him all the time," Paul Ryan said, according to Tim Alberta's book "American Carnage." "Because, I'm telling you, he didn't know anything about government ... I wanted to scold him all the time." On one occasion, Alberta reports, Trump finally gave in to signing a 2018 spending bill that didn't include border wall funding only after Ryan agreed to give him time to build suspense on Twitter.

President Donald Trump extended his tongue-lashing of former Speaker Paul Ryan, telling reporters on Friday: “The only success Paul Ryan had was the time that he was with me.”

“For him to be going out and opening his mouth is pretty incredible,” Trump declared.

Trump slams Paul Ryan for 'atrocious' record: 'Couldn't get him out of Congress fast enough!' President Trump went on a tear against former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) late Thursday night, lambasting his "atrocious" record after excerpts from a forthcoming book described the former GOP leader as exasperated with the president. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); In a trio of tweets, Trump blasted Ryan over his 2012 failed vice presidential bid on a ticket with Sen.

Trump’s comments follow the release of excerpts from a new book by POLITICO Magazine's chief political correspondent, Tim Alberta, in which Ryan said Trump “didn’t know anything about government” and that he wanted to “scold him all the time.”

“We’ve gotten so numbed by it all,” Ryan said in the book, "American Carnage". “Not in government, but where we live our lives, we have a responsibility to try and rebuild. Don’t call a woman a ‘horse face.’ Don’t cheat on your wife. Don’t cheat on anything. Be a good person. Set a good example.”

Trump kicked off his retaliation on Thursday evening, tweeting that Ryan was a "lame duck failure" who lost the majority because of "poor leadership and bad timing."

The president revived the attacks on Friday, accusing Ryan of being inept at fundraising, not being aggressive towards Democrats while Nancy Pelosi has handed out subpoenas “like cookies,” and losing control of the House. The president then claimed that Ryan was shouted offstage at an event in Wisconsin.

“I introduced him and they booed him off the stage,” the president claimed. “10,000 people!” he added. Trump then mentioned that Wisconsin was a state that he had won.

Other Republicans are coming to Ryan's defense, including Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who ran a failed presidential campaign with Ryan as his vice presidential candidate in 2012.

“The fault of our 2012 loss is mine alone,” Romney said. “@SpeakerRyan was a tireless campaigner, fundraiser, and conservative champion.”

“A man like Paul Ryan does not often come along,” the senator added.

Paul Ryan is once again being cast as a pariah.
The former GOP House speaker and 2012 vice presidential candidate is a unifying figure these days. Liberals have long despised him -- unfairly in my mind. Anti-Trump conservatives are infuriated by his "surrender to Trumpism," in the words of Charlie Sykes, editor-in-chief of the Bulwark. And, of course, the Trumpian true believers have long despised Ryan. The latest round of vitriol makes sense, of course. The Ryan haters are just following President Trump's lead.
