Donald Trump sent shockwaves through his millions of haters last night when he beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Now, the #NeverTrump conservatives like House Speaker Paul Ryan are scrambling to protect their futures under a Trump presidency.
Fox News host Sean Hannity called in to react to the status of the election when it became clear that Trump was about to win. Breitbart reported that Hannity explained he did not see House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) maintaining his position as speaker of the House.
“This is about one thing – they see that Washington is broken,” Hannity said. “And by the way, Republicans are just as guilty. Paul Ryan is not going to be the speaker of the House in January. I was going to save that for my program tomorrow. He is not going to be the speaker. His state went for Donald Trump tonight. I mean it is an amazing turn of events because the establishment on both sides – Republican and Democrat have lost touch with the real lives of real Americans that are really suffering. And now Donald Trump is opening the door and said we’re going to fix it and we’re going to turn that table over. And you know what? I wish him all the best because it’s not going to be easy because all the same people that opposed him in the lead up tonight are going to be opposing him tomorrow.”
Ryan is trying to kiss up to Trump as much as he can today, but it might be too late for him. What do you think will happen? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
