Soup Kitchen President: Ryan Did Wash Dirty Dishes

Brian Antal, the president of a soup kitchen in Ohio, said on Tuesday that his prior comments to the Washington Post were misconstrued and that Paul Ryan did in fact wash several dirty dishes during a photo op with the press this past weekend, NBC News reports:

In response to questions about Antal’s comments to the Washington Post that Ryan “did nothing” while at the soup kitchen, Antal said his words were mischaracterized. He told NBC News in that Ryan did very little work only compared to the larger context of Saturday morning, when the kitchen fed 180 homeless people breakfast. Antal conceded that Ryan did wash several dirty dishes.
