Wednesday's HOT MIC

About twenty-four hours after Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi did it, Speaker Paul Ryan finally got around to condemning Antifa.

“Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country,” Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement provided exclusively to The Daily Caller.

"As is obvious?"

No, based on Ryan's prior statements, it was obvious he was doing everything he could to avoid mentioning the fact that, in addition to white supremacist groups, Antifa was present in Charlottesville instigating violence. He only stated the obvious after he was outflanked by his uber-lefty colleague San Fran Nan.

Better late than never. I guess.
