Yesterday there was a lot of buzz about Paul Ryan regretting the kerfuffle with Donald Trump. Today, the Speaker’s office is denying those reports and the Politico is now reporting those reports must have originated with the Trump campaign.
This is an old trick by Donald Trump that his campaign has apparently taken to heart.
See this tweet from Phil Klein.

That links to this story at BuzzFeed showing how capable Donald Trump is at manipulating the press. Trump admitted to calling reporters, telling them things that might not be so, then having the press run with them once the other party to the story said “no comment.”
That’s actually a pretty clever trick.
