Nobel Prize-Winning Economist Ridicules Paul Ryan For Ranting About Wealthy Donors Backing Dems

During an interview with the Washington Examiner, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) started whining about wealthy donors helping out Democrats and said that their money was the reason Democrats flipped the House.

“There were a lot of seats in California we should have won and we got massively outspent. If you’ve got a couple of billionaires dropping $100 million on your head, that leaves a mark,” Ryan complained.

Ryan’s comments didn’t sit well with Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, who ridiculed Ryan for being a puppet for wealthy conservatives like the Koch Brothers.

Krugman took to Twitter where he shamed Ryan’s hypocrisy.

“I didn’t exactly see this coming: Republicans blaming their midterm shellacking on the nefarious influence of billionaires,” Krugman tweeted before linking to a screenshot of Ryan’s comment juxtaposed with a Politico article headlined: “Sheldon Adelson kicks in $30M to stop Democratic House takeover.”

Take a look at his series of tweets below:
