1. "Unfortunate" and "unhelpful" are pretty lame criticisms

considering the awfulness of the subject matter. Ryan is a coward.

3. Check out His Body Language in the Photo

Hes trying to climb back into himself as a sign of embarrassment.
Wonder if his response would have been as subdued if Obama or HRC had made the same comments. Hed be full of righteous indignation if that had happened.

11. Crossing the arms

Shows he's not confident. I learned that when my attorney used to do it in court. He was also an idiot.

5. So Ryan is confirming that he said it.

And Trump is claiming that Dems are making it up. Sorry trump, caught again.

6. My thought precisely . . .

I don't believe Ryan was in the meeting where Trump said it, but as Ryan is confirming it that must mean he's heard similar talk in the past.

As Josh Marshall (TPM) observed: Had a Democrat not been in that meeting, would we have heard about it?

8. Wow, you fucking worm, "very unfortunate and unhelpful." Sure took him to the woodshed didn't you?

Next time, maybe the spineless republicans will be forced to resort to a strongly worded letter!

10. In other news, doctors find Paul Ryan's spine

But it turned out to be small, undeveloped, unable to suppport any weight, and shoved firmly up Donald Trump's butt.

12. "Very unfortunate" just cracked me up. Too bad he can't bring himself to condemn the fool.
