Paul Ryan Throws Shade at Breitbart

"I don't even know what they do," he told interviewers.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) hit his far-right media nemesis, Breitbart, with some underhanded comments in an interview with the Associated Press on Wednesday.

“I’ve got three certainties in my life: death, taxes, and attacks from Breitbart,” Ryan said, channeling Benjamin Franklin.

Asked if Breitbart was “a positive or negative force for the country,” the speaker told interviewers that he wouldn’t answer the question directly.

“I just don’t pay attention to this stuff. It really just doesn’t get to me anymore,” he said.

But then Ryan threw shade at the far-right online publication. “I don’t even pay attention to what they do,” he said. “I don’t even know what they do, so I can’t really answer your question because it doesn’t matter to me.”

As much as Breitbart attempts to “troll” Ryan, it doesn’t appear it’s having much effect.
