Paul Ryan has sold his soul.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate for Montana’s open seat in the US House of Representatives, “should apologize” for assaulting a reporter from The Guardian on Wednesday night.

Ryan told reporters at a press conference that “physical altercations” of any kind “are wrong and that shouldn’t have happened.” He added that Gianforte “should apologize.”

But, wait, that was a problem, but the Republican Healthcare bill that takes 23 million Americans off of healthcare, and puts the elderly who need nursing home care on the street, well, that’s ok?

Get a clue and get a spine, Ryan.
