Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Well, Paul Ryan now is talking about that op Ed yesterday. Dodging questions about Bob Woodward's book. Now being asked about the insider who is rolling on the president and his behavior. Paul Ryan says whoever wrote that anonymous op, Ed. Is living in dishonesty and should not work for the president. Ryan said today understands Trump's tweeting an unconventional tactics Bader bother people. But that Trump is producing good results. There is a there's a weird.
