House Speaker Paul Ryan says the possibility of President Trump being charged with obstruction of justice is just because Trump is new and does not understand government “protocol.” What a sad and pathetic response. So, we have a chief executive who does not understand why a president can’t try to obstruct an investigation dealing with the possibility that a foreign nation tried to undermine our electoral process? Well, Congressman Ryan, when is this so-called president going to figure out what it takes to be president: this month, this year, ever?
And while he is trying to figure out what this strange, new job he wanted is all about, how many more laws will he violate, how many more allies will he insult, and how many more lies will he tell to cover up his own incompetence?
