Former House Speaker Paul Ryan recently conducted an interview, solidifying his image as the anti-Trump critic that many had already perceived him to be.
Simultaneously, he described Trump as an authoritarian narcissist and then praised former representatives Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for their anti-Trump stance, portraying a sense of unwavering principles.
Is it any surprise that Ryan was unable to secure success in 2012?

Fox Board Member Paul Ryan Slams Trump, Hails Cheney and Kinzinger: ‘Trump’s Not a Conservative, He’s an Authoritarian Narcissist’
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan tore into Donald Trump in a recent interview, denouncing the former president as an “authoritarian narcissist,” and claiming that more Republicans in Congress wished they had been bold enough to stand against him when they had the chance…
“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 said.
“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,” Ryan continued.
“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,” he added.
