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?

I don't know how Trump could put up with this man... he certainly should not trust him with his agenda.

I'd just "Hit the ground with Ryan".  He's an obnoxious, two faced Sidewinder.    Get rid of him, as an effort to do just this, I have been calling Congressmen, all over the Country, asking them to replace him, when the Election of Speaker comes up in January. Join me, remember if they do not hear from you, they think you don't care.

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.
