Gutfeld on Ryan: ‘Conservatives Should Despise Groupthink,’ Same People ‘Cheering Disruption,’ ‘Now Demanding Unity’

On Friday’s broadcast of “The Five,” Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld commented on House Speaker Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) saying that he’s not ready to support presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump by stating that “conservatives should despise groupthink” and “some true conservatives are mad that Ryan won’t back a liberal Republican. But it’s nice to see the same people who were cheering disruption just weeks ago, now demanding unity.”

Gutfeld said, “I mean, sure, conservatives should despise groupthink and embrace individualism, but it’s time to get to the program. So what if you’re worried about a guy who changed parties five times, hedges on taxes, contradicts himself on foreign policy, favors raising the minimum wage, linked [Sen.] Ted Cruz (R-TX) to JFK’s death, blamed Bush for 9/11, ridiculed a war hero, and took a picture with a taco salad while saying ‘I love Hispanics’? I for one can’t wait to see how President Trump celebrates Martin Luther King Day. What will he eat then? I kid the Donald. Anyway, Ryan says he’s not ready…and some true conservatives are mad that Ryan won’t back a liberal Republican. But it’s nice to see the same people who were cheering disruption just weeks ago, now demanding unity. For me, Trump’s killing of ideology is great, if only he replaces it with principles.”

Gutfeld added, “As for Ryan, you don’t have to worry, he’s meeting Donald next week and 10 to 1, they’ll end up eating taco salads in Trump Tower, and then all of our noted principled conservatives can relax as another one falls into line.”

He later stated that he doesn’t have all the facts on Trump “because there’s too many contradictions.” And that disagreeing with Trump doesn’t make you a “traitor.”
