Speaker Paul Ryan had a bit too rollicking of a time when he heard this joke highlighted by ShareBlue’s Tommy Christopher on Twitter.
Speaking with the National Review‘s Jonah Goldberg at the American Enterprise Institute, Ryan laughed a bit too hard (read: way too hard) at a joke comparing President Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler – and it was favorable to Hitler.
“I warned you that there was an elephant in the room that we couldn’t avoid talking about,” Goldberg began. “My own personal view is that President Trump is not the cause of all of our problems, but there are a lot of aspects of his presidency that are symptoms of a lot of our problems.”
“As I keep trying to tell people on the resistance sort of left, Donald Trump is not Hitler,” he continued. “Hitler could’ve repealed Obamacare.”
At this, Ryan guffawed. And then he laughed some more. And a little more after that.
“That’s really good,” he said through even more laughter.
“It’s funny ’cause it’s true,” Goldberg replied. “You can look it up.”
