Trump Campaign Manager Accidentally Endorses Paul Ryan for President

vlcsnap-2016-08-04-09h48m03s426Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort accidentally misspoke during a Thursday morning interview and endorsed Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for president.

Manafort was asked on CBS This Morning if he personally supported Ryan’s candidacy after his boss pointedly refused to endorse him. “I support him as Speaker, and I know after next week I’m supporting him as a candidate for president, too,” Manafort responded, before suddenly realizing his mistake.

The hosts began to laugh and rib Manafort good-naturedly. “Oh, really?” said Norah O’Donnell. “There is talk about that!”

“Please talk into the microphone,” supplied Gayle King.

“So Donald Trump is getting out of the election and Paul Ryan jumping in?” asked Charlie Rose.
