This week Charlie discusses Speaker Ryan’s announcement that he’s leaving Congress and contends that Ryan really delivered for the president. He also comments on Mark Zuckerberg’s trip to Washington and asks if the American people are more “pro-Facebook” or “pro-Congress”?
In terms of why Speaker Ryan is leaving, Charlie argues that, “In Paul Ryan’s case, there’s a lot of plausibility to the fact that he really cares about his family and is going back to them. He has young kids. He really never wanted this job. And so, he leaves at a good point for him.”
Charlie concludes by acknowledging that the Democrats have their problems as well. “if the Democrats take the house, will Nancy Pelosi again become speaker – that’s a gigantic question,” says Charlie.
