    No way he'll be running. After four seasons of West World, the people of the United States will finally understand who Mr. Ryan is.

    I really want to think ANYONE the GOP nominates next time is bound to be better than the trainwreck they have running for them now.

    Really, what's so bad about Ryan? I have a dual-minded political personality. Sometimes I think like a Libertarian and other times I'm more like a moderate Republican. My Republican side likes Paul Ryan.

    I don't really have a problem with Ryan. I just think he's a little stiff and robotic is all. Doesn't come across as very warm. That has nothing to do with his politics.

    I'm sure I won't have a problem with Paul Ryan, but if I do, believe me, there will be a price to pay. Believe me.

    A Trump presidency would be unprecedented in the area of comedy and entertainment value -- like epic battles with the speaker of the House from his own party. Listen Paul, if you don't support my latest Hair-brained idea I'm going to veto your bill and sign Nancy Pelosi's instead.

    Trump needs a primary challenge.

    Maybe he'll pull an LBJ and not run. If so the Republicans should put up someone like Ben Sasse. But I don't think Trump is going anywhere.

    I dreamt last night that in a middle of a press conference, Trump got mad and resigned. Just up and resigned and walked off the stage all huffy. I remember thinking how surreal it was and now that I recall my dream, it really was surreal.

    I've mostly stopped paying attention to politics so I'm not sure where that came from. I did watch Seth Meyers last night so maybe from him.

    I know this is not me breaking new ground, but after seeing the events in Charlottesville I can't imagine anyone that condemns racism to vote for Trump. While Obama, W, Clinton, etc. were not perfect on race issues, Trump's mere presence is fueling the fire and giving these white supremacist groups the balls to no longer hide behind their white sheets and step out into the light.

    Trump's statement today was horrible. He couldn't be less presidential if he tried.

    That coupled with his non-statement about the firebombing of a mosque are pretty troubling. He refuses to call racists racists.

    That article is skeptical that North Korea is a pot-smoker friendly place. Gary Johnson didn't even read the article.
