Pelosi Staffer Taunts Ryan With Fake Press Release About Hiding From Trump Reporters

paul ryanNo, not The Onion, although Nancy Pelosi‘s Deputy Chief of Staff might be bucking for a position there.

Paul Ryan‘s axed his usual Q&A session with reporters today in order to host Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi before he appears before Congress. Nonetheless, that didn’t stop Drew Hamill from drafting a fake news release explaining the real reason why the House Speaker isn’t in the mood to speak with reporters right now.

Even though Ryan said yesterday that Donald Trump‘s attacks on a Trump-University judge’s ethnicity were the “textbook definition of racism” he never exactly threatened to withdraw support for the presumptive GOP nominee. In fact, a lot of Trump critics have taken him and other party leaders to task for continually complaining about Trump’s antics, but never actually forcing him to evolve in behavior, issue a public apology, or face any real consequences for his controversies.
