Paul Ryan‘s famous words sure are proving to have an impressive shelf life.
Back on Thursday May 5th, the House Speaker appeared on The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, just two days after Texas Senator Ted Cruz dropped his own Presidential bid, effectively making Donald Trump the party’s presumptive nominee. When Ryan was asked about formally endorsing Trump at the time, he responded, “I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now.”
Eventually, Ryan would come around, although this week Trump sarcastically fired back at Paul Ryan’s impending primary race by noting, “I’m just not quite there yet”… to endorse his own party’s House Speaker.
And moments ago live on Fox & Friends, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove was asked directly if he would be voting for Trump in November. His response?
“I’m gonna say what he said about Paul Ryan. He’s just not there yet.”
The longtime George W. Bush campaign architect — who once called Trump “a complete idiot” — clarified, “I’m not voting for her,” after Steve Doocy said that withholding support for Trump would mean a vote for Hillary Clinton.
“My state is gonna go comfortably Republican,” Rove offered before awkwardly asking the Fox & Friends the most obvious question of 2016: “Who are you gonna vote for?”
The morning show trio played coy. “Not gonna say,” said Anna Kooiman right after Doocy hysterically offered, “Haven’t figured it out yet.”
