Ohio Soup Kitchen Director Slams Paul Ryan Over Fake, Unauthorized, Photo-Op

Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, had a few choice words for Paul Ryan blasting the GOP Vice Presidential candidate for an unauthorized visit to a soup kitchen which he commandeered expressly for the purpose of a photo-op making believe that he was helping the hungry and homeless.

The Washington Post:

“We’re a faith-based organization; we are  apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations,” Antal  said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. “It’s strictly in our bylaws not to  do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of  the volunteers to open up the doors.”

He added: “The photo-op they did wasn’t even  accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the  dining hall.”

Ryan had stopped by the soup kitchen for about 15  minutes on his way to the airport after his Saturday morning town hall in  Youngstown. By the time he arrived, the food had already been served, the  patrons had left, and the hall had been cleaned.

Typical Lyin Ryan.  He pretends to wash a pot. He pretends to have a workable budget. He pretends to  debate.

The only real thing about Ryan seems to be his monster ego and his callousness against the average American citizen.
