A spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign said Friday that House Speaker Paul Ryan shouldn’t be speaker if he can’t get behind his party’s presumptive nominee.
If the speaker of the House doesn’t come around to supporting the Republican nominee, do you think Paul Ryan is still fit to be speaker? CNN’s John Berman asked Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.
No, because this is about the party, Pierson responded. We were told to hold our noses and vote for the sake of the party.
These same people are now telling us that because their guy didn’t win, they want to hurt the party, she added. If you can’t hold yourself to the standard that you’re holding everyone else, the problem is with you.
