During her opening statement on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Jeanine Pirro ripped House Speaker Paul Ryan, calling for him to step down after his healthcare bill to replace Obamacare failed miserably.

McCarthy quote: “If we are going to be strong, we have to be a 100% united.”

We can say it maybe to clear his conscious from working with an administration where his hands were tied. Many will know him as our weeping Speaker of the House. We don’t know why he seemed to always weep, the job might have been too difficult for him to follow. Speaker of the House Republican John Boehner will step down in October to finally call it, all quits. He had the toughest job in Congress, and we should all remember, he tried. He claimed numerous times that he tried, but his hands were tied…
