VIDEO: Paul Ryan Slams Media in New Interview With ‘Face The Nation’

He nails it.

Published

on

On a recent episode of “Face the Nation,” host John Dickerson played a clip of an interview he conducted earlier this month with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan where he slammed the mainstream media for only seeming to cover the political fighting going on in our nation.

Another topic of conversation that came up during the interview besides the discussion of bipartisanship in the media is how identity politics has infiltrated the GOP.

DICKERSON: Why do you think there’s not much talk about bipartisanship in the coverage?

RYAN: You know, I don’t think it sells for you guys, for the media. You take a look at the bills we pass out of the House – about a thousand bills. It’s been one of the most productive sessions of Congress in a generation. And of those roughly thousand bills, over 80% of them are bipartisan bills. So, we’ve tackled opioids; we’ve tackled human trafficking; we’ve rebuilt the military. All of those are bipartisan, but they don’t get reported. It doesn’t sell. So, I honestly think, John, it’s the hits and the clicks, and it’s the ratings chase that’s on display in America today that says when they’re fighting each other, that’s when you cover it.

DICKERSON: So if we accept some portion of responsibility for that, you’ve seen some of President Trump’s rallies. Do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us – the bipartisan achievements? Or do they do something very successful in politics…which is sow division in the country?

RYAN: Yeah.

DICKERSON: Do you see that happening at his rallies?

Ryan noted that while sometimes divisive behavior is present at Trump’s rallies, that’s not always the case. When Dickerson pressed Ryan for more, he launched into a bit about the dangers of identity politics:

I worry about tribal identity politics becoming the new norm of how politics is waged. As conservatives, we always thought this was sort of a Left-wing, Alinsky thing. Unfortunately, the Right practices identity politics now as well. It’s the day and age, it’s technology and everything else – identity politics, which is now being practiced on both sides of the aisle, is, unfortunately, working. And I think we, as leaders, we gotta figure out how do we make inclusive, aspirational politics strategically valuable again?

Dickerson once again brought the conversation back to President Trump asking, “Does President Trump practice those kind of politics?”

Ryan replied by saying, “sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn’t.”

Dickerson reacted incredulously, but Paul stated:

Look…on economic growth, on tax reform, on getting the military, and helping veterans – those are things that he has led us to that have really brought people together. And he talks about these at his rally, and that is inclusive.

GOP Rep. Blows the Doors Off Russia Probe, Says HAIR-RAISING Info Is About to Drop [Watch]

HERE WE GO…

GOP Rep. Mark Meadows dropped a bomb Friday night on Fox News’ “Hannity.” No need to beat around the bush. Let’s get right down to it… From Daily Wire: Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News on Thursday night that the reason that Democrats are reacting with anger over President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify information from the Russia investigation is that they know what explosive information is about to come out that will make many of them look bad. Meadows noted, “I can tell you, there’s information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it’s so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now is because they know — they’ve seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the President of the United States. And so that’s why you’re seeing it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132053108559769601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132053108559769601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47666%2Fmeadows-declassifying-russia-investigation-info-ryan-saavedra Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election.

HERE WE GO: Far-Left Dem Rashida Tlaib Is Promoting Movement Designed to Destroy Israel

Isn’t that special!?

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) isn’t making headline news, it’s fellow freshman Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN). If it’s not Omar, it’s Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib (MI). Today belongs to the woman who draped herself in the Palestinian flag after winning her election last November. In case you live under a rock, Tlaib has made it abundantly clear that isn’t the biggest fan of Israel. From Daily Wire: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on Thursday which is designed to destroy Israel. Tlaib retweeted a tweet from a far-left Democrat activist that goes by the name “Rasha” on Twitter. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132062158911549441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132062158911549441&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47669%2Fdemocrat-rashida-tlaib-promotes-anti-semitic-ryan-saavedra The tweet featured a video of NYU commencement speaker Steven William Thrasher who promoted the anti-Semitic movement at the school’s graduation this month. Thrasher noted, “I am so proud, so proud, of NYU’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voices for Peace, for supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against the apartheid state government in Israel.” You know how Americans hijacked multiple planes on September 11, 2001 before crashing them into large buildings and murdering upwards of 3,000 people? That’s because Americans were not behind the attack that forever changed the world. Tlaib, known for lodging her foot directly between her lips, says she was “really afraid” of her “fellow Americans” after 9/11. You can’t make this up. From The Blaze: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) says that she was “afraid” of Americans in the days following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Tlaib: “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.” She added, “I immediately called my brothers and told them to…
