In an interview with CBS News on Thursday, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said that his relationship with President Trump is “very good,” following the failed Republican push to reform Obamacare and a misunderstanding regarding Trump’s Twitter feed.
After the failed health care push, Trump sent out a tweet imploring followers to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News program that night. Pirro opened her show by calling for Ryan to resign the speakership.
“He was actually very apologetic about it,” Ryan said. “He thought she was going to talk about something with respect to Russia that he thought was interesting and favorable.”
Ryan laughed off the criticism Pirro leveled at him. “This is one of those jobs where you take a bunch of slings and arrows and you just know that when you take this job.”
Trump has notoriously refused to apologize for attacks on various individuals and groups, but Ryan’s account marked a departure from that tradition.
