For months, some of us have been hoping Paul Ryan would at some point stop bowing down to the con man in chief who sits in the White House eating cheeseburgers and watching cable news.

That he would start putting country over party and his career goals.

That he would start preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution.

How naïve we have been!

It has become apparent to anyone who pays attention that Ryan is complicit in Trump’s big con job whose objective is not having to worry about investigations leading to findings of his family’s involvement in money laundering and obstruction of justice.

Some people have referred to Ryan as Trump’s lap dog. I would disagree with that comparison. Lap dogs have spines.

Long ago I learned to judge a person by their deeds, not by the smirk on their face.
