Ryan urged Kelly to reconsider and touted the Georgia Republican's experience in Congress and work in the administration, one of the people familiar with the call said.
Price has long had the speaker's ear on policy matters and was part of Ryan's old "Jedi Council," a group of fiscal conservative rabble-rousers who used to powwow when Republicans were in the minority.


Well that's something. Anakin was the hero? He missed a spot.

Fark you, Ryan.

Ryan has a "Jedi Council?"

Was it possible to hate him more?

Apparently....

Well, he has gone out of his way to kill women and younglings, so I think we know who he views himself as.

I don't get it.  Price failed Ryan as much he failed Trump.

But nice to know that Mr. Ryan is OK with certain kinds of takers:  the rich, male, white ones.

Although I would prefer that Karen Handel not have the Georgia 6th seat, it does my heart a little good to know that Price doesn't either, and now he's out of the HHS, too. It helps that Ryan wanted him to stay. I hope that this helps further divide the party and the two ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.

...a group of fiscal conservative rabble-rousers...

Hahaha! This farker's taking private jets at the taxpayer expense and Paul Ryan is going to increase the deficit to give tax cuts to the rich but sure, sure, fiscal conservatives!

Delusional.

F*ck it, let's all go Dark Side. They have hookers and blow.

Is it okay to call Ryan a coont?
 
2017-10-03 09:40:36 PM  
Trump Admin really hates Ryan to release this. Lol.

All that lifting is to stay in shape for podracing.

A coont is a beautiful thing. The source of all life.

Ryan is more like... a turd.
 
2017-10-03 09:45:43 PM  
Of course he did...
 
2017-10-03 09:47:15 PM  
I see Paul Ryan hasn't been taking notes on how this administration operates. That call probably sealed the deal.

Enough about my weekend plans!

On one hand it could have been leaked to make Ryan look bad.

On the other hand Ryan was bad to begin with.

So my question is now what's the point?
 
2017-10-03 09:55:53 PM  
every day Ryan beclowns himself.  It's delughful.
 
2017-10-03 09:57:16 PM  
Ryan wanted Price to stay because resigning/firing is an admission of guilt. Nothing would have happened to Price if he kept his mouth shut.
 
2017-10-03 10:06:55 PM  
Good to know that Paul Ryan supports everything horrible in this world. To steal a quote attributed to another Farker regarding Trump......too bad Paul Ryan isn't a country music fan.
 
2017-10-03 10:13:04 PM  
Sorry Paul but your little club is being broken up. By the Orangeturd you hate, but you swallowed your revulsion ro try to push your Patriots for Billionaires agenda through.

I hope you're gagging on it. I hope every day is a fresh wave of misery.
 
2017-10-03 10:13:05 PM  
From what I've read, the cost is actually over a million including the military flights he chartered.

Still to rip of tax payers for Trillions with the F-35 not being combat ready.

Price was too bright to stay on board. I heard he doesn't even drink Brawndo.

Worse, now I have to hate Star Wars. What will I tell my kids?

Cambrian: Ryan wanted Price to stay because resigning/firing is an admission of guilt. Nothing would have happened to Price if he kept his mouth shut.


If it was a trip or two he would have survived, but with travel costs exceeding $1 million it would have become an albatross for Trump. For fun I read the comments on Breitbart and even all of those people were outraged.

Spending $1 million on private planes is one of those rare scandals that people of all political stripes get angry about.
 
2017-10-03 10:57:33 PM  
Conservatives.

or

They tried to save their 'in', that's all.
 
2017-10-03 11:15:28 PM  
his resigning sets a bad precedent for all the other frequent fliers.

plus liftbro is a cock.
 
2017-10-03 11:33:59 PM  
It's almost like he's a colossal dick.
 
2017-10-04 12:34:56 AM  
Fark Paul Ryan.
 
2017-10-04 12:56:44 AM  
He worked in Aliens, though.

/bad call, Ripley

Trying to show his loyalty to D2S.

It's your duty as an American citizen.

If you're not an American citizen, it's your duty as a decent human being.

He should've tried reverse psychology - if he'd told Trump he must fire him, Price would still be there.
