Paul Ryan and Donald Trump.

Mount Pleasant, WI- NBC News and MSNBC had a candidate forum tonight that left Democratic nominee for Congress Ryan Solen wondering how Paul Ryan can continue to endorse Donald Trump after a series of questions from Matt Lauer and members of the all-veteran audience proved Trump is incapable of handling the United States military or any other aspect of the highest job in the land.

Does Paul Ryan, like Donald Trump, believe that American military generals have been “reduced to a point where it’s embarrassing to our country”? Ryan Solen is an Army veteran and served in the war in Iraq with the same generals Donald Trump disparaged. Will Paul Ryan disavow that comment and stand up for the United States military?

Does Paul Ryan care that Donald Trump has a “secret plan to defeat ISIS” that he won’t reveal? Tonight, when he was asked directly by a veteran in the audience, Trump sidestepped answering how he will defeat ISIS and moved on to how he will stabilize that part of the world after America has somehow defeated the international terror group without giving any indication how he plans to do that except to consult with the very generals he just belittled or, perhaps, new generals. Paul Ryan talks about being a policy wonk, doesn’t he want a president who makes plans and implements them?

Donald Trump has been clear on his feelings about undocumented immigrants and that he plans to have them deported back to their country of origin yet tonight he said that if one expressed an intention to serve in the military he would allow them to remain. If an immigrant is good enough to serve in our military, why could they not stay in our country and continue to make America great? What does Paul Ryan think about this?

Does it bother Paul Ryan that Donald Trump has such a clear admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin? Matt Lauer pointed out several examples of Putin’s wrongdoings and that Putin undermines U.S. foreign policy around the globe but Donald Trump got starry-eyed because Putin called him brilliant. Does Paul Ryan want someone as Commander-in-Chief who can be so easily swayed by mere compliments?

Ryan Solen served in our military and has a master’s degree in International Relations. He recognizes that a Donald Trump presidency would be a disaster for the military, our veterans, and America’s stature in world affairs. Paul Ryan either sees this and ignores it in favor of party politics or he is blind to it and that is why he continues to endorse Donald Trump. Each scenario has frightening implications.
