Former President Trump put out a statement Friday in response to former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan‘s speech Thursday night. In the statement, Trump accused Ryan of being a Republican in name only.
Trump scoffed Ryan’s advice for conservatives to win elections, saying he “was the single biggest fact, other than Romney himself, for the monumental Romney/Ryan loss in the Presidential race of 2012.” Meanwhile, “I got more votes by far,” Trump wrote, “75M than any other sitting president in history!”
“Interestingly, I was in the Great State of Wisconsin when they booed him off the stage,” Trump went on. “I literally had to come to his rescue.”
Yesterday, Ryan tried to lead the GOP away from “populist appeal of one personality” or else “we’re not going anywhere.” But Trump disagreed. “Ryan should instead be telling them how to stop the cheating of elections and that we would have won if Republican leadership fought the way the Democrats did.”
Now, “Ryan has been a curse to the Republican party,” Trump said. He even went as far to say that Ryan’s involvement on the board of Fox News has lead to “millions of its great supporters fleeing for good.”
Finally, Trump echoed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). “As a Republican, having Ryan on your side almost guarantees a loss for both you, the Party, and America itself!” Trump said.

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
