  • At a Republican rally in Wisconsin, House Speaker Paul Ryan was heckled by Donald Trump supporters. Ryan responded by saying, "there is a bit of an elephant in the room, and it is a bit of a troubling situation." Ryan was referencing to his comments about Donald Trump's leaked video tape, when Ryan said he was 'sickened' by Donald Trump's remarks about women.
  • Representative Ryan relayed a story told to him by Wisconsin Department of Children and Families Secretary Eloise Anderson about a boy who received free lunch at school that gladly chose a bagged lunch over a free school lunch meal in an attempt to portray Democrats as offering children "full stomach and an empty soul." While the story received a hearty applause from his audience, it seems to have mirrored a story written in the book "An Invisible Thread." Once informed of this error, Ryan wrote on his Facebook page to apologize for "failing to verify the original source of the story."
  • Newt Gingrich publicly opposes Paul Ryan's budget proposal and take on reforming Medicare. He then flip flops on the issue when a majority of Republicans lash out at him.
