Trump Spox: Paul Ryan Not Fit to be Speaker if He Doesn't Endorse Trump (VIDEO)

I was on CNN New Day this morning along with Donald Trump’s national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson.

At first I thought the newsiest item out of it was that she denied voting for Barack Obama in 2008, something she should correct on her Wikipedia page. And at Politico. And here. And here.

But then, host John Berman asked Katrina about Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to wait on offering his endorsement for Donald Trump’s presidential nomination.

Her answer? He’s not fit to be speaker. Watch.


Washington Examiner has the transcript:

A spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign said Friday that House Speaker Paul Ryan shouldn’t be speaker if he can’t get behind his party’s presumptive nominee.

” If the speaker of the House doesn’t come around to supporting the Republican nominee, d o you think Paul Ryan is still fit to be speaker?” CNN’s John Berman asked Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.

“No, because this is about the party,” Pierson responded. “We were told to hold our noses and vote for the sake of the party.”

A request for comment has been sent to Speaker Ryan’s office.
