Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck tells BuzzFeed: “The reporter knew he was already well over the allotted time for the interview when he decided to ask a weird question relating gun violence to tax cuts. Ryan responded as anyone would in such a strange situation. When you do nearly 200 interviews in a couple months, eventually you’re going to see a local reporter embarrass himself.”
Sure. And if Paul Ryan can't handle a local reporter, how can he handle Joe Biden on Thursday, or the job of Vice-President?
Once again, if President Obama had done this, it would be over for the Obama campaign. "Thin-skinned. Arrogant. Uppity. Ni-CLANG."
But it's perfectly okay for Paul Ryan to do it.
