This is why Trump is having such a hard time winning the support of establishment Republicans. Ryan was showing that he and his House are tepid, an opportunity for Trump to reach out and try to unite. Instead, this is his reaction. He will always be narcissistic and demeaning, it's just who he is and speaks to his temperament in general. While I don't agree with Republicans on most things, it's hard not to see their point here.
(CNN)A national spokesperson for the Trump campaign said Friday that if House Speaker Paul Ryan can't come around to supporting Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, he's no longer fit to hold his current position.
In an interview on "New Day" on CNN, host John Berman asked Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson whether Ryan was fit to retain the speakership if he can't get behind Trump as the GOP standard bearer.
"No, because this is about the party," Pierson replied. "The last two presidential cycles... 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."
