Cleary Paul Ryan doesn’t believe Trump’s excuses either on why he didn’t disavow David Duke and the KKK. He delivered this strong rebuke of Trump just a few moments ago on this issue without calling him by name:
This is the Party of Lincoln. We believe all people are equal in the eyes of God and our government. https://t.co/Ft2sCrQ9CX

THE HILL – Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday delivered a scathing rebuke of Donald Trump, warning that the GOP presidential front-runner cannot engage in “evasion” or “games” when it comes to rejecting white supremacy groups.
“This is the kind of moment where we should be having a serious debate about the policies needed to restore the American idea,” Ryan told reporters on Super Tuesday. “Instead, the conversation over the last few days has been over white supremacy groups.”
“I try to stay out of the ups and downs of the primary, but I’ve also said when I see something that runs counter to who we are as a party and a country, I will speak up,” Ryan said. “If a person wants to be the nominee of the party, there can be no evasion and no games. They must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry.
“This party does not prey on people’s prejudices. We appeal to their highest ideals, this is the party of Lincoln. We believe all people are created equal in the eyes of God and our government,” Ryan added. “This is fundamental and if someone wants to be our nominee, they have to understand this.”
Even Trump supporters know he didn’t have a bad earpiece. Trump is trying to get all the votes he can muster and he doesn’t care where they come from or from whom. That’s why he didn’t disavow David Duke on Sunday. Trump is an ‘ends justify the means’, ‘win at all costs’ type of candidate. He doesn’t care how he wins as long as he does. And this is simply part of that.
