Image result for Hannity: Paul Ryan will not be House speaker

A Donald Trump victory in the presidential election would be just the beginning of a massive upheaval in Washington, Fox News' Sean Hannity said Tuesday night, predicting that "Paul Ryan is not going to be the speaker of the House in January" if the Manhattan billionaire wins the White House.

Hannity, a vocal supporter of Trump's, said the real estate mogul's march through many of the early swing states indicated a disgust on the part of the American electorate with its government. And while Democrats bear a large responsibility in Hannity's estimation for turning its back on much of the country, he said both parties are culpable.

"They see Washington is broken. And Republicans are just as guilty. Paul Ryan is not going to be the speaker of the House in January," Hannity said during a phone interview on Fox late Tuesday. "I was going to save that for my program tomorrow. He's not going to be the speaker. I mean, an amazing turn of events because the establishment on both sides lost touch with the real lives of real Americans, and Donald Trump opened the door, said we're going to fix it and turn the table over."

Hannity walked back that assertion somewhat in a post to his Twitter account early Wednesday morning, writing that "assuming Trump wins, it's up to him and congress if Paul Ryan should be speaker. I am disappointed the speaker didn't show enough support."

Amanda Carpenter, a former communications director for Ted Cruz and a contributor to CNN, responded to Hannity's post with incredulity.

"Sean wants Trump's first act to be WAR? When does the unity start? I'll put down the sword if you guys will," she wrote in her own post to Twitter, linking back to Hannity's message.

Hannity said he had spoken to Trump three times during the evening but refused to offer much in describing the substance of those conversations. He said Trump has been "superstitious" as he watches the election returns.

"He's kind of been, you know just holding his breath like the rest of us and waiting and watching. And you know, I think he's very sober about it and I think, you know, he's a guy that loves a big challenge."

Paul Ryan is a Democrat Sympathizer RINO!!

Now we begin!

Ryan and Cruz are intelligent, talented people.  However, they did not show themselves to be players on the same team as we wanted them to be.

The Col. is correct when he says Trump knows that when you take over a failing organization, you do not retain the same leadership.  While Cruz and Ryan are still in office they should serve out the rest of their (present) terms (not in leadership positions); and, if they can show they have learned the 'error of their ways' maybe their constituents will see fit to keep them in office.  They need to be constantly aware all of their actions are under strict scrutiny.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
