It’s become pretty clear that Donald Trump likes to say a lot of things that he doesn’t really mean, take credit for things that are good, and blame others for things that are bad. This is also what children do, but I digress…
Trump also seems shady as hell in the way he goes after people when they aren’t doing exactly as he pleases.
One of the most recent examples of this can be seen in what he is doing to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) after the complete failure of the American Health Care Act and the inability to get the number of votes needed for it to pass.
Trump doesn’t like to be seen as a failure, and god forbid he blame himself, so what is he doing? Seemingly blaming Paul Ryan.
Not only that, it looks as though Trump wants Ryan gone and out of the Speaker role, and he let America know this in the most cowardly way possible.
Trump cryptically, without much rhyme or reason, tells everyone to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News.

What was Judge Jeanine talking about on her show? Getting rid of Paul Ryan.
“Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill.”

Nevermind the fact that Trump endorsed the new health care bill and it was subsequently called Trumpcare.
What Trump doesn’t seem to realize is that he actually has to work with members of Congress as well to get things done. Sure, Ryan’s role is to rally his party to vote in their favor, but Trump can’t just sit back and watch it unfold. This isn’t like micromanaging a business. It would seem Trump is still not quite understanding that politics and legislating are a lot different than a board room.
In addition, it’s also a lot easier to blame someone else than take the blame himself.
However, Trump is an absolute coward for not even being able to say it himself, but rather saying he wants Ryan gone in the most backhanded way — through a cryptic tweet aimed at leading people to the conclusion that Ryan needs to be gone.
