Paul Ryan Balks At Student's Question About How He Can 'Morally Justify' Trump Support

(0) Comments | Posted July 13, 2016 | 4:57 AM

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) isn’t backing down from his support of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, even after repeatedly condemning the candidate’s comments and actions.

When asked about this seemingly paradoxical attitude, Ryan punted.

“I cannot and will not support Trump,” one audience member at Tuesday’s CNN Town Hall event said. “It concerns me when the Republican leadership is supporting somebody who’s blatantly racist and has said Islamophobic statements, want to shut down our borders. How can you morally justify your support for this kind of candidate, somebody who could be very destructive?”

Ryan first scolded the young man, a Republican student named Zachary Marcone.

“You’re going to help elect Hillary Clinton,” he said. “And I don’t think Hillary Clinton is support any of the things you stand for if you’re a Republican,” calling a potential Clinton presidency “a third Obama term.”

The Republican leader told CNN host Jake Tapper that he justifies his support for Trump because “it is a binary choice.”

“It is either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. You don’t get a third option,” he said.

Ryan then noted that he’s also criticized Trump for the same issues that bothered Marcone. 

“I felt obligated to speak out when I saw something that was wrong, when I heard something that was wrong, that didn’t reflect my views or the views of fellow conservatives and Republicans,” he said. “I think it’s important, no matter what the circumstances, you speak out for what you believe in.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

브렉시트와 트럼프의 시대에 영국에서 미국인으로 산다는 것의 의미

미국의 내 친구들은 이름이 아메리카인 맥주를 마시고, 성조기를 닮은 베리 파이를 굽고 있다. 내 고향에서는 고등학교 운동장에서 얼른 나와서 구경하라는 듯 구호처럼 요란한 소리를 내며 불꽃놀이가 터진다.

내가 작년 8월부터 살고 있는 런던에서는 7월 4일은 그저 월요일일 뿐이다. 꽤나 우울한 이번 달의 7월 4일은 화창하고 따뜻한 날이다. 이른 아침이다. 잉글랜드에서는...
