To demonstrate his plan to “equalize the tax treatment” for American manufacturers, the House Speaker grabbed tape recorders sitting on his podium.

“Let’s just take this tape recorder right here — I hope I didn’t turn it off — and say it’s an American-made tape recorder,” he told the gathered reporters. “This is an Olympus. I have no idea where that’s made,” he said before reaching for a second device and queuing up his accidental punchline.


“Sony, made in Japan,” Ryan laughed. “Oops.”
