Paul Ryan Calls Donald Trump`s Attack on Judge 'Racist'

By Robert Paul Reyes

"House Speaker Paul Ryan ripped Donald Trump`s recent remarks saying a judge presiding over a lawsuit involving his business was biased because of his Mexican heritage as `the textbook definition of a racist comment.`

As he stood surrounded by community activists and top House GOP members, Ryan admitted Tuesday that the firestorm over Trump`s comments was undercutting his own push to roll out a positive policy agenda for his party. He said he wouldn`t defend Trump but instead would concentrate on his agenda project.

Pressed on whether he regretted his own endorsement of Trump that came last week, Ryan added, `I regret those comments he made.`"

Donald Trump`s Racist Vendetta Against Judge Gonzalo Curiel

House Speaker Paul Ryan is spot on,Trump`s argument that the judge presiding over the Trump University lawsuit is biased because of his Mexican heritage is the textbook definition of a racist comment.

It is now clear beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump is a racist, look up the word "racist" in the dictionary and you will see his orange face.

After much deliberation Ryan finally gave a lukewarm endorsement of Trump, It`s not enough for the House Speaker to denounce the Republican presumptive nominee`s racist comment, he must denounce the racist, and retract his endorsement.

The soul of the GOP is more important than the 2016 presidential election, it`s incumbent on Republican leaders to condemn Trump`s racism and retract their endorsements.

Demographics and American`s abhorrence of racism ensures that the GOP won`t win another presidential election unless they distance themselves from Trump`s blatant racism.
