Ryan Greeted with Some Boos from Trump Backers

Ryan Greeted with Some Boos from Trump Backers

House Speaker Paul Ryan is greeted with a mixture of boos and cheers at a Republican rally in his Wisconsin congressional district.

Ryan began his comments Saturday by saying "there is a bit of an elephant in the room," referring to the profane comments made by GOP nominee Donald Trump that came to light Friday.

Ryan did not mention Trump by name but said, "it is a troubling situation. It is."

But Ryan says he put out a statement Friday about Trump's comments and "that is not what we are here to talk about today."

Ryan said Friday he was "sickened" by Trump's comments. He also disinvited him from Saturday's rally.

Trump supporters are yelling "Donald Trump!" at Ryan throughout his speech, while most of the crowd is cheering the speaker's comments. He spoke for just seven minutes, leaving to shouts of "Shame on you!" and smattering of boos.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner defended Ryan on Saturday.

The Wisconsin Republican says the annual "Fall Fest" is a chance to thank Ryan for his work. That led someone in the crowd to yell, "Not no more!"

Sensenbrenner started to say, "OK, if you're not going to be for the whole ticket" before being interrupted again by the person shouting "I'm for Donald Trump!"

Sensenbrenner then urged the person to "stop interrupting me" before making his case to elect both Trump and others running for office this year.

Trump originally was to headline the annual event in Ryan's district. Ryan on Friday told Trump not to come after lewd and sexually charged comments Trump made in 2005 came to light.
