Et Tu, Ryan?

Updated on March 14, 2019

Edited by Derek Gutierrez

The fallout from every single member of the Democratic Party running for president at this point is so widespread that former Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan believes it will destroy Trump. He continues his narcissistic assault on our Lord and Savior by warning the nation that the Republicans may not see the light at the end of the tunnel come 2020. Their bromance has had many highs and lows when it came to him disapproving Trump’s proposed Muslim ban, to Ryan supporting a lot of his cookie-cutter Conservative policies when it came to the removal of regulations.

In this hacking and slashing of his goodwill towards the party he does make a fair point, he states, “The person who defines that race is going to win the race. If this is about Donald Trump and his personality, he isn’t going to win it.”

Trump, according to Rasmussen Reports, is looking at about a 47 percent approval rating which is good enough for a Republican to have a second round at the presidency, but only time will tell.

It seems as if everyone in the Democratic Party these days is running for president, so why don’t we talk about the people who have the highest chances.

Joe Biden

Biden is leading in most polls, as the former VP to Obama, he is no stranger to the political world. Obama has not pushed Biden to run nor has he given him support. No words on if Biden’s ego was bruised in the process. If Biden doesn’t get Obama’s support he will lose in the primaries. His race along with his moderate views does not make him likable among the intersectionality group.

Mr. Potato Head

Spartacus has been on the campaign trail talking about how he's our “next generation Obama.” Although he leads far behind in the polls, he has one secret weapon to defeat Trump, “ Love”. Trump is seen as some reincarnation of the demon haunting Regan in “The Exorcist”. “I'm not going to let Donald Trump contort my soul”

Bernie Sanders

Bernie, a man who openly supports Cuban policies, is not seen as “left enough” to the party. Really? The reason many leftists don’t support him is due to him being white. The irony of a party that openly shames any acts of racism is too susceptible to the same faith. He is the second runner up behind Biden so if he wants a chance he needs to either go full-scale communist or hope and pray Biden doesn’t come in.

Elizabeth Warren

Rob Lowe said it best when he tweeted “Elizabeth Warren would bring a whole new meaning to Commander in 'Chief’.” This woman has no shot of making it to the presidency, and her Native American heritage fiasco has left her a dead man walking.

Kamala Harris

While she has two points in the Oppression Olympics as “representing” the African American and women communities, she has come under fire for lying to get votes. What other politician has ever done that before? Let me put on my stunned face. Although most of the mainstream media outlets support her she hasn't made a big push in the polls.

Kirsten Gillibrand

She has flip-flopped on every policy she ever stood for. Even Olympic athletes can’t compete with her levels of mental gymnastics. She ranks about .5 on the RealClearPolitics polls, so let’s just say she has a long way to go to make it to the White House. My recommendation, do what the “Ranch Girl” did and walk away.

Beto O Rourke

This man hasn’t even announced his running. Why is he ahead of Gillibrand in the polls? The only way Beto can win is if he runs on immigration and the border. As a Texan, he can talk about the struggles illegal immigrants deals with, or how he has a Spanish name. Either one is equally appealing to Democrats.

The idea that Trump will lose is no guarantee, that was the mindset that ultimately led him to destroy Hillary Clinton. Americans usually stick to voting with the incumbent; although they preach change, they usually choose the status quo.

We can all at least agree one thing. Who ever wins, we all lose.
