Paul Ryan is done with questions about the American Health Care Act.
The Speaker of the House held a detailed powerpoint press conference to explain the new law. With clicker in hand and rolled up sleeves, the Speaker led reporters through what he said were Obamacare’s failings and the proposed Republican alternative.
But very few people online paid much attention to what Ryan said, and instead focused on the unique substitute teacher-esque situation he had put himself in.
Mediaite’s own Managing Editor, Jon Nicosia, led the way — though he was hardly alone!

Power Points. On cable television. I’m really excited to see the ratings on this.

I’m fairly certain I’ve never seen anyone give a PowerPoint presentation on national television.

2 signs Ryan means business today:
1. Sleeves rolled up
2. Powerpoint presentation https://t.co/iQq8ZMKgvT

This is a good audition for @SpeakerRyan for his guest fellowship at Harvard or the University of Chicago after he resigns in frustration.
