Speaker Johnson Under Fire as Photo with Paul Ryan Emerges at the Capitol

Speaker Johnson is currently facing backlash after a photo surfaced showing him in the company of former House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The image, captured and shared by Jake Sherman of Punchbowl News, depicts the two figures emerging together from the Speaker’s suite at the Capitol.

This encounter has sparked controversy, particularly given Ryan’s recent public statements criticizing former President Donald Trump.

Paul Ryan, who served as the Speaker of the House from 2015 to 2019 and the architect of FOX News cancel culture, branded former President Donald Trump as an “authoritarian narcissist” while commending the actions of Trump critics, Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney.

“Look, Trump’s not a conservative. He’s an authoritarian narcissist. So I think they basically called him out for that. He’s a populist, authoritarian narcissist. So historically speaking, all of his tendencies are basically where narcissism takes him, which is whatever makes him popular, makes him feel good at any given moment… He doesn’t think in classical liberal-conservative terms. He thinks in an authoritarian way. And he’s been able to get a big chunk of the Republican base to follow him because he’s the culture warrior.”

“And so I think Adam and Liz stepped out of the flow and called it out and, you know, paid for it. Paid for it with their careers. But I think, again, back to my earlier point, I don’t think he is really very good at these jobs unless you’re willing to lose these jobs.”

The emergence of the photo, which coincides with such polarizing remarks from Ryan, fueled a backlash among supporters within the GOP party. Social media users echoed sentiments of betrayal and accused Johnson of political heresy for meeting with Ryan. Critics are fanning the flames, questioning Speaker Johnson’s allegiance to the party’s values and agenda.

The photo was taken a day before the House passed the $886 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a vote of 310-118, following the Senate’s endorsement, which now advances the bill to President Biden’s desk.

Speaker Johnson was one of the lawmakers who voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

    these people are either being manipulated/blackmailed or they are being paid/bought to continually do what the people CLEARLY are against, that is funding foreign unwinnable war/abortion/eunuch operations! They will continue to refuse to listen til the sabers are being rattled at thier gates at home and in DC. Perhaps not until a gallows or guillotine is erected even. They are going to count on being able to pay some poorer shmuck to protect their corrupt asses, right up til they dont care about that worthless cash any longer and we have a peoples moment like they had in russia with the czar.

    We live in a day when everybody criticizes everybody. Nothing positive, nothing noteworthy, just propaganda and hate. THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I GREW UP IN, NOR DOES IT RESEMBLE THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE. I hesitate to say what it looks like but hate, coveting, gender confusion, and lawlessness have become the norm.
    It’s obvious political parties don’t have the answer!
