Republicans Gingrich, Hannity, and Carson Fire Back at Paul Ryan

Posted: May 06, 2016 10:30 AM

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan decided to make a controversial statement Thursday afternoon by saying, "I'm just not ready to support (Trump) at this point."

Donald Trump immediately responded by saying "I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan's agenda."

Sean Hannity went after Ryan in several tweets and said on his Fox News show that, “I’m not ready to support Speaker Ryan anymore... I’m thinking we may need a new speaker.”

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich joined Hannity on his show Thursday night and sided with Trump.

“First of all, Donald Trump may turn out to be the most effective anti-left leader in our lifetime. He is against political correctness. He is against bureaucracy. He places American nationalism first which I think we desperately need. I’m tired of being told we have to have phony agreements and phony efforts.”

Ben Carson weighed in on the subject early Friday morning.  “You don’t have another choice,” he said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."   

"You get behind the choice that you have, whether you like them or not, if in fact you’re a believer.”
