Today, House Speaker and third person in line for the presidency, Paul Ryan, offered to consider supporting the presumptive nominee of his party if Mr. Trump gets him a pony:
Paul Ryan: 'I'm just not ready' to back Donald TrumpHouse Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday he cannot yet support presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's presidential campaign."I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not there right now," the Wisconsin Republican told CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" in an interview.Ryan's position makes him the highest-level GOP official to reject Trump since the real estate mogul became the last candidate standing in the party's nominating contest. His move gives down-ballot Republicans cover to hold off on supporting Trump. It could also keep his agenda in the House from being overtaken by Trump's policy positions.Ryan said he hopes to eventually back Trump and "to be a part of this unifying process." The first moves, though, must come from Trump, he said.Ryan said he wants Trump to unify "all wings of the Republican Party and the conservative movement" and then run a campaign that will allow Americans to "have something that they're proud to support and proud to be a part of."...
Mr. Trump countered with an offer that maybe Ryan would get his pony --
-- one piece at a time:
DONALD J. TRUMP RESPONDS TO SPEAKER PAUL RYANThey still have no idea what sort of lunatic they have just made the head of their party.
"I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan's agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!"
But it is going to be incredibly entertaining watching them learn.
