First Draft


Thank you, thank you. I’m really sorry I have to be here today and make a public display of my complete lack of principles.

As many of you will remember, I was slow to endorse Donald Trump and quick to condemn him when the Access Hollywood tape surfaced. Let’s be honest, that was an easy calculation to make. It didn’t look like he had any shot, so it made perfect sense to pretend to take a moral stand against him.

Now the tide has turned. The polls have tightened, and it looks like Trump has a chance. Obviously it’s time for me to revisit that calculation and tag back in.

Clearly, no one wants to be a loser. I do not want to be the guy who didn’t jump on board if Trump wins. More importantly, though, if he loses, I don’t want to be the guy he and all of you blame for helping Hillary win.

Remember, folks, it really boils down to this—Ryan 2020!
