There’s an unusual puff piece in People featuring the parenting style of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, I guess as an homage to the upcoming Father’s Day Hallmark Holiday, sure we will go with that. It waxes eloquent on how his father died when he was young, so of course he’s not going to make that mistake… for his kids.
The article then holds forth on how the multi-millionaire Zombie-eyed Granny-starver flies home every week for a 3-day weekend filled with events for his kids (yes, HE gets paid family time off, but no one else can) to avoid being an absent parent, unlike the poors and the takers who if they had made better decisions like being born into one of the wealthiest industrialist families in the mid-west, might be able to negotiate into their contracts at the three jobs they hold.
Any way, there’s this odd thing near the end of the article:
And while his job does require some weekend phone calls to take care of business [TG: the man suffers like few others have in recorded history], Ryan says he doesn’t want to talk politics with his kids. (Or with PEOPLE. One condition of the Speaker getting on the phone for the magazine’s special Fathers’ Day gallery was that he not be asked about his party’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump, whom Ryan has famously declined so far to endorse.)
…At a closing joking reference to Trump, Ryan says with a chuckle, “I’m hanging up now!” And then does.
Oh, that ZEGS! Such a kidder.
