Nehlen: ‘Paul Ryan’s Disdain and Disrespect for the American Electorate Is Breathtaking’

Asked about what Politico reported as Paul Ryan “ditching” presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, “It was stunning,” Ryan’s primary challenger Paul Nehlen told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon.

“I couldn’t believe it,” continued Nehlen. “I don’t know where you get off…” pausing to read from, then direct listeners to a new Nehlen campaign press release on the subject, “Paul Ryan’s elitism is showing. He’s apparently decided that the American electoral process of a representative republic isn’t good enough. His disdain and disrespect for the American electorate is breathtaking.”

The release continues:

“It doesn’t matter whether Speaker Ryan approves of candidate Trump or not,” noted Nehlen. “It doesn’t matter whether any congressional leader approves of him. It matters even less if RNC leadership approves of him—including Paul Ryan. The fact is, the American people have spoken in state after state after state. They’ve made their choice. It is petulant, arrogant, disrespectful—and in many senses dangerous—to our representative system of government to tell people across this nation who took the time to cast a vote, ‘Sorry, I’m not cool with your choice.’ It is for the people to decide who they want to lead, not for one man or a cabal of party elites.”

That is why Trump excelled. These are the reasons the people voted for Trump. These are the reasons Trump will be our next POTUS. We the people want the "Elite" put in check. With this mentality is it not a reason for voting for Trump whether you like him or not? We the people are fed up with being used as pawns and our vote discarded.

So why do they keep asking different "leaders" their views or if they approve?

Mr. Ryan apparently needs to be reminded that these same citizens voted NOT to send he and Romney to the Whitehouse.

Every since I heard the term "idiot proofing" in reference to a presidential election I haven't thought the same way.Do we seriously have to be idiot proofed?
