For Those Secretly Hoping That Paul Ryan Would Stand Up to Trump ...
… you may want to look elsewhere for a savior.
WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker Ryan to nation: 'Welcome to the dawn of a new unified Republican government'— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) November 15, 2016
God help us all.
I mean, at least the friction between Trump and Ryan will make it difficult for them to work together …
Speaker of House Paul Ryan almost "giddy" about working to make President Elect Trump successful! He says he's talked with Trump daily.— David Benjamin (@thetoyman1) November 15, 2016
Oh, well, I mean … but at least he’s standing up against white supremacist Stephen Bannon being appointed as the White House Chief Advisor …
.@SpeakerRyan on Steve Bannon pick: “This is a person who helped him win an incredible victory on an incredible campaign.” No criticism.— Cameron Joseph (@cam_joseph) November 15, 2016
Well, at least Donald Trump and his transition team feels humbled and will work to unify the country. I mean, they even had conversations with Elliot A. Cohen, Counselor to the United States Department of State under Secretary Condoleezza Rice from 2007 to 2009, and he was encouraged by their meeting … wait, what’s that?
After exchange w Trump transition team, changed my recommendation: stay away. They're angry, arrogant, screaming "you LOST!" Will be ugly.— Eliot A Cohen (@EliotACohen) November 15, 2016
So, basically our only hope is that ignorance, incompetence, and infighting will cripple Donald Trump until 2020.

SCOOP: Former US Rep Mike Rogers is OFF on Trump transition team, sources tell me. He was tapped by Chris Christie; all Christie leaders OUT— Jennifer Jacobs (@JenniferJJacobs) November 15, 2016
There is a war going on in Trump's transition team between that want to hide their fascism and those that are proud of it.— John (@linnyitssn) November 15, 2016
