Below is from my FNC colleague Joy Lin. It is a note from the press pool covering Congressman Paul Ryan today.
motorcade, we arrived at the Puritan Backroom restaurant, a diner known for
its chicken strips and milkshakes. Ryan spent about half an hour shaking
hands with patrons and ordering ice cream for aides as well as one for
NBC’s Alex Moe.
Asked by your pool on the way out what he thought of Nathan Lane’s remark at a Friday night fundraiser with Joe Biden that Ryan was like the “wicked witch” from the Wizard of Oz, Ryan at first just laughed.
Then, as he continued walking outside from the back to the front of the
restaurant, Ryan quipped: “I mean, he was good in The Producers.” (not on can)
No news aside from that. More color from the ice cream stop to come.
The pool has arrived at the Manchester Radisson,where Ryan will be for the next couple hours. Print pool will be attending the general reception, which starts at 545. Ryan is also attending a photo reception and dinner reception but pool is not welcome to that.
