Chief Political Correspondent for Politico Tim Alberta, has a book coming out next week that is going to tear into the GOP.
Alberta claims it shows the rise of Trump, but it is as biased as any of the MSM’s narratives.
The book harps on how many Republicans changed their tune once Trump was elected president. For example, they show how Paul Ryan was very much against the president.
“Perhaps no one has had a more tortured relationship with the president than former House speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) — who went from wanting to abandon Trump after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape to working to enact his agenda after the election all while doing his best to avoid commenting on his tweets and controversial statements.
Alberta reports that Trump berated Ryan over a 2018 spending bill because it didn’t include funding for his border wall but then said he would sign it if Ryan were to give him time to build suspense on Twitter. Ryan agreed and then publicly sang the president’s praises after the meeting. “
“We’ve gotten so numbed by it all,” Ryan said. “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.”
“I told myself I gotta have a relationship with this guy to help him get his mind right,” Ryan recalls. “Because, I’m telling you, he didn’t know anythingabout government . . . I wanted to scold him all the time.”
“Those of us around him really helped to stop him from making bad decisions. All the time,” Ryan says. “We helped him make much better decisions, which were contrary to kind of what his knee-jerk reaction was. Now I think he’s making some of these knee-jerk reactions.”
“In Alberta’s telling, Trump calls Ryan a “f—ing Boy Scout.”
This is just part of the book. Alberta makes the GOP look like a bunch of cowards afraid to voice their opinions. He also paints Trump like a dictator demanding loyalty. The MSM and liberals are going to love this anti-GOP propaganda.
