The day after Donald Trump had another “HUGE” night of gaining delegates, former Speaker of the House John Boehner said that he would support a different candidate. Not Cruz or Kasich, but Paul Ryan.
Yes that Paul Ryan, the current Speaker of the House who reluctantly took the position when the GOP failed to find anyone else. It might all happen again.
“If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above.” Boehner said.
So none of the 17 candidates who fought their way to convention and spent millions and millions of dollars are going to get your vote Mr. Boehner?
“They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”
As crazy as this scenario sounds, it may be a glimpse into what the GOP is really planning for convention.
Ironically Donald Trump has had some very nice things to say about Paul Ryan lately. After the two most recent primary election day speeches, Donald has mentioned his call with Paul Ryan and how he appreciates his support.
Could the establishment be organizing behind the scenes to make sure that Trump doesn’t get enough delegates to win outright in Cleveland this summer? Is their sleeper pick Paul Ryan.
Ryan took over the position of Speaker of the House with reluctance and didn’t even really want the job. Now it could all be happening again, but this time for President.
There is only one way that Donald Trump can make sure this or any other sneaky political tricks don’t happen. That is to make sure that he gets 1,237 delegates before convention. If he can’t, we could be looking at a Hillary vs Ryan this fall.
