Paul Ryan sits on the board of directors at Fox News.
Conservatives fear that Ryan is using that position of power to influence the programming on the top-rated cable news channel.
And you’ll never guess who Paul Ryan banned from appearing on Fox News.
Ryan recently made headlines with a comment in an interview with a local Wisconsin ABC affiliate where Ryan announced that he would not attend the 2024 GOP convention if Donald Trump wins the nomination even though the event will be held in his home state.
Establishment RINOs like Paul Ryan are desperate to stop Trump from winning the nomination and they will use every tool at their disposal to derail Trump’s re-election campaign.
That includes party elites like Ryan trying to scare voters into supporting a Trump alternative by threatening to turn the nominating convention into a GOP civil war.
A nominee depends on a carefully scripted four-day convention to drive a message and demonstrate party unity heading into a General Election.
If establishment RINOs like Paul Ryan skip the convention it will allow the media to turn the focus of coverage into the divide within the GOP and ignore the party’s case for why voters should remove Joe Biden from office.
In a video posted to the pro-free speech site Rumble, Donald Trump Jr. slammed Ryan for this temper tantrum.
“No one gives a crap!” Trump Jr. continued. “Literally no one!”
Trump Jr. also expressed his belief that Ryan is behind the decision to ban him from appearing on Fox News programming.
“This guy is the guy on the board of Fox News, which also explains a lot about the direction and some of the content I’m seeing out there folks. This explains, to me, almost everything, frankly. I know I haven’t been invited on in six months, so I’m sure that’s him pushing his RINO, America Last, war-forever garbage to the Democrats’ agenda,” Trump Jr. added.
Fox News turning on Trump is one of the biggest media stories of the year.
After the November election where a number of Trump-endorsed candidates lost, the New York Post reported that Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch informed Trump that he could not support Trump’s re-election campaign.
“We have been clear with Donald. There have been conversations between them during which Rupert made it clear to Donald that we cannot back another run for the White House,” a Fox Corps source told the Post.
Keeping Donald Trump Jr. off the air appears to be part of this anti-Trump effort by Fox News.
