Paul Ryan disavowed Trump's judge comments. Should he walk away? | The Tylt
Paul Ryan disavowed Donald Trump’s comments about federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel Tuesday morning, saying that “Claiming a person can’t do a job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
The statement is part of a huge backlash Trump is facing after questioning the impartiality of Judge Curiel because of his Mexican heritage and involvement with Latino advocacy groups.
However, Ryan only disavowed the comments and still stands by his support of Trump’s candidacy. Ryan went on to say that with Trump, they have “more common ground on the policy issues of the day, and we have more likelihood of getting our policies enacted with [Trump] than with [Clinton].”
Trump may be a loose cannon, but Ryan believes he stands by conservative ideals and policies. But people are calling out Ryan to back away from his support of Trump. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, well…
Some feel what Ryan is basically saying is that even though Trump is racist, he’s our racist. If he has any semblance of principles, he should walk away.
So, should Paul Ryan retract his support for Donald Trump? Or should he stand by the GOP's nominee?

Sort of saying it's like the textbook definition of a racist comment is almost like saying what Trump said is racist.... Smh— Tracy Blake, M.S. (@GRASSGURU) June 7, 2016
