About 40 high schoolers from Wisconsin are using the start of their spring break vacation to bring the weekend's national wave of gun control marches to the hometown of Republican U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) showed a special level of spinelessness as he begged House Republicans not to bully Trump on his tariffs.
The Washington Post reported, “The morning meeting came as Republican lawmakers grasped for a strategy to persuade Trump to change his mind, with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), who had loudly criticized the plan on Monday, telling members in a closed-door meeting not to bully Trump on the decision. He said it could backfire and make things even worse.”

In one speech, she likely did more work than Trump has done all week, and Republicans could do nothing but tip their caps.
House Speaker Paul Ryan once again proved that he has no self-awareness or grasp on reality after posting a tweet on Saturday touting a secretary’s $1.50 weekly raise, which he credited the GOP tax bill for.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is turning a blind eye and supporting Devin Nunes in his treasonous secret memo effort to kill the Russia investigation.
CNN’s Manu Raju reported, “There is a lot of support within the Republican conference on the house side to move forward and release this memo. The speaker Paul Ryan, his office, in fact, is making it very clear, they also are supporting whatever Devin Nunes ultimately decides to do, a spokesperson for the — for Ryan’s office just told me moments ago that they’re deferring to Nunes about this, not the first time they deferred to Nunes in his ongoing dispute with the justice department. So, Brianna, a lot of questions ahead of this key meeting tonight about whether or not a vote, but if there is one, very likely enough support to send it over to the white house, which makes the decision about whether to object to its release or allow its release. We know the president himself is inclined to allow it to be released.”

There's something very wrong with Ryan weighing in on this and using his power in government to try to silence free speech. Qualifying that with acknowledging their right doesn't mitigate from the chilling of free speech of such a powerful person in government shaming the players' criticism of government.
The GOP representative had planned to "force a vote on his bill to extend work permits and deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children."
