Did you expect Paul Ryan to own up and apologize?
If so, you’re going to be disappointed.
Earlier today, audio leaked of Paul Ryan bashing President Trump behind closed doors. Listen to it here.
We had all been waiting to see what Captain RINO would say, and now we have it.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) dismissed the audio that leaked Monday showing him vowing to not defend then-GOP nominee Donald Trump, calling his words “ancient history.”
“I got really thick-skinned, Martha. That is ancient history, back then, when that video came out,” Ryan told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.
“Look, it is no secret that Donald and I, the president and I, had our ups and down during the campaign. But we merged forces at the end of the campaign…And since then, we have been working hand and glove together,” Ryan continued.
Breitbart released the sound of Ryan Tuesday, revealing that Ryan claimed he would not “try to defend” Trump after the “Access Hollywood” video surfaced in early October.
Ryan did not directly address whether the leaked audio is an attempt to hurt his health care plan, which Breitbart and conservatives have panned.
“I don’t even really give it much thought. It is just not part of my day job to worry about things like that, so, I don’t worry about it,” Ryan said.
Ryan can be heard in the audio telling fellow Republicans to do what’s best for their campaigns in terms of reacting to the “Access Hollywood” tape, which showed Trump talking obscenely about women.
