Paul Ryan: Trump Needs To Get It Together After ‘Anti-Semitic’ Tweet

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) admonished Donald Trump on Tuesday for tweeting an anti-Hillary Clinton message with a Star of David over the weekend. An exasperated Ryan called the tweet “anti-Semitic” and “ridiculous.”

“Look, anti-Semitic images have no place in a presidential campaign,” Ryan said in a phone-in with conservative radio host Charlie Sykes.

Ryan also said while he doesn’t know which Trump campaign “flunky” was responsible for the message featuring a six-point star, he couldn’t drop everything to denounce the “ridiculous” tweet over the Fourth of July weekend.

“If I had to stop everything to comment on every ridiculous tweet sent out by this campaign, I wouldn’t have time to do anything,” he said. “I really believe he’s gotta clean up the way his new media works.”
