On Tuesday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity said that President-elect Donald Trumptold him that Rep. Paul Ryan would not be Speaker of the House should he win the White House.

“Paul Ryan is not going to be the Speaker of the House,” Hannity during a phone interview on Fox News on Tuesday night.

Declaring himself to be “kind of superstitious,” Trump said that he didn’t want to get ahead of himself, according to The Hill.

Trump also made a similar comment on Bill O’Reilly’s show last month, in which he didn’t want Ryan’s support.

“The fact is, I think we should get support and we don’t get the support from guys like [House Speaker] Paul Ryan,” Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Fox6 reported at the time:

“I don’t want his support,” Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly about Ryan. “I don’t care about his support. What I want to do is I want to win for the people.”

His remarks come after the Republican nominee lashed out in a stream of tweets earlier Tuesday, slamming as Ryan effectively cutting him loose and accusing the party leadership of dooming his campaign.

“It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to,” Trump tweeted.

Now that Trump has won the electoral votes that should give him the White House, we’ll see just how much influence he has over Congress since they are the ones who decide who the Speaker of the House is to be.

While many championed Paul Ryan as a real conservative when he was Mitt Romney‘s running mate in 2012, I warned you that he was a devil and not a conservative. Time has demonstrated that I was right about Ryan even while many of my readers berated me over that exposure.

However, many didn’t listen, even after John Boehner stepped down and Congress put Ryan in as House Speaker. He demonstrated right off the bat what he really is by handing everything Obama wanted to him in the more than trillion do....

Paul Ryan was part of the establishment elite and donors that attended a conferen....

I’d love to see Donald Trump exercise some influence on representatives and get Paul Ryan out of the Speaker’s chair, but then the question comes, who will fill that position? Is there someone in mind, and would they actually be a better candidate? We’ll see.

Update: Just as I posted this, The Blaze reported:

“We’re going to do some absolutely spectacular things for the American people,” Trump said.

Ryan said he and Trump discussed ways to “hit the ground running” once he is sworn in as president.

After Trump was elected president, Ryan praised Trump, telling reporters the pair spoke over the phone both Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

“Let me just say, this is the most incredible political feat I have seen in my lifetime,” Ryan said Wednesday. “Donald Trump heard a voice out in this country that no one else heard. He connected in ways with people no one else did. He turned politics on its head. And now, Donald Trump will lead a unified Republican government. And we will work hand-in on a positive agenda to tackle this country’s big challenges.”

After his remarks, Ryan was asked how he would go about striking a balance between his own conservative policy platform and Trump’s populist message.

“I think the mistakes that we made in the past is we didn’t seize the opportunity when it presented itself,” Ryan replied. “The opportunity is now here. And the opportunity is to go big, to go bold, and to get things done for the people of this country.”

Why the sudden change in tone?

The sudden change in tone by Ryan is due to the fact that " A double minded man is unstable in all his ways" and should never, ever be trusted.

Ryan was one way when Trump was merely a candidate. Ryan is now the opposite way when Trump is the President-Elect.

Drain the swamp. And Ryan is a pig wallowing in it.

And, by the way Mr. Trump. Make sure you trash all of Obamacare. All of it. Then, in your new healthcare package, you can institute provisions into it that have merit even though they were also in Obama's Health heap of unaffordable could care less crap. Make sure you do it this way. This is your promise to the real American people.

I agree. Undo everything Obama did, which will take us back to Jan 19, 2009. Then proceed with extreme caution while preserving freedom.
Ryan, like the other RINOS are bereft of any scruples.
Now that Trump made absolute FOOLS out of them, they want a part of the action.
Guess what . . . .HERE'S where Trump's negotiating skills will suck the political life out of his Republican political enemies.
Guys like Ryan and Romney and all the other back stabbers will be on the outside looking in.

Call the House Freedom Caucus as I have done to "DEMAND Ryan VACATE the SEAT of SPEAKER". Two members and their DC phone numbers are:

Curt Clawson   202-225-2536

Ron DeSantis  202-225-2706

Absolutely Philip... get rid of Ryan he is not trustworthy at all.  Once disloyal always disloyal.


We all love President Trump, but let's not create a conflict right out of the box. Ryan knows he won with a huge mandate and he should give Ryan a chance to redeem himself. If at the first turn, he doesn't do what Trump wants, then, get rid of him. 

We don't need a fight right out of the box with congress and Mr. Trump don't have a say in who is speaker anyway. That is up to the congress. Let's TRY to work with them and if they don't play ball, go back to the people and let the people tell congress, get him out of there. 

Just say'in. 

Trump will USE Paul Ryan to get legislations through his first 100 days but he may toss him later.Paul Ryan is the Judas of the republican party and he can never be trusted. Plus I wouldnt doubt the dems pay paul ryan for info since he is friends with them and if Harry Reid likes Paul Ryan we are all in trouble and guess what? he does. Trump is all about loyalty and I dont see that in Paul Ryan 

forget Paul Ryan there are far more deserving people that can do the job

McConnell also needs to go. He's a spineless RINO.

This is good news.

Paul R is like whale crap the bottom of the ocean

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
