It’s Mother’s Day, which means that a number of leading political figures took to social media to wish well to their own moms and to the rest of the moms of America.
Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is one of those politicians who did so, posting an image of himself and his mother with the caption, “Happy
#MothersDay to my mom & all moms who do whatever it takes.” You can see his tweet below.
The ironic thing is that while Ryan gives public lip service to respecting his mom and the rest of the women of America, he moves forward in his daily legislative actions with policies that strip healthcare from millions of women. He and his cronies want to cut everything from Planned Parenthood to Medicare.
Twitter promptly ripped into Ryan for pretending like he gave a damn about the respect for mothers and women that is traditionally coupled with Mother’s Day.
