Each week, a new Republican(s) faces the bleak reality that Trump is a sinking ship and decides not to run for reelection. Last week, Rep. Trey Gowdy shocked everyone when he announced that he would leave politics altogether. The former archenemy of Hillary has since spoken more candidly about Trump.
House Speaker Paul Ryan could be the next Republican to bail after his painfully embarrassing, since-deleted tweet helped his competitor raise a game-changing amount of funds.
Ryan attempted to justify the GOP tax scam and rebuke House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s “crumb” comment by tweeting:
“A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, Pa, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week, Ryan wrote before adding, “she said [that] will more than cover her Costco membership for the year.”
After realizing that $1.5 indeed is crumbs, he deleted the tweet.
Pelosi later wrote on Twitter, “Paul Ryan deleted his embarrassing tweet of a blatant admission because he and Republicans don’t want you to know the truth: the #GOPTaxScam is a gift to corporate America and the top 1% at your expense.”
Ryan’s competitor, Randy Bryce aka “IronStache,” responded to Ryan’s blunder in the tweet below:
Moments ago, @PRyan deleted this tweet after we told him just how out of touch he was. Show Paul Ryan what you think of his tax bill. Chip in $1.50 now to help us repeal and replace Ryan permanently this November.https://t.co/c3Fii4Q0Jn

Bryce’s office later told Shareblue Media:
“From Saturday through 1 p.m. on Sunday, we raised $130,000 from 10,600 contributions.” Bryce’s office added that 5,1000 of the contributions were $1.50.
Hopefully, Ryan will continue to cook his own goose.
