Turns Out That Paul Ryan Is A Big Miller Lite Guy

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is apparently a fan of drinking some ice cold Miller Lite.

Steve Scalise tweeted out a gif of the Wisconsin native drinking the beer for his birthday, and I’m loving it.

I get dragged constantly by the coastal elites in Washington D.C. because I love Miller Lite. I throw those bad boys back like they’re candy. That’s apparently frowned upon in the swamp, where we’re only supposed to drink microbrews that nobody has ever heard of. Even at work I get hassled regularly. I refuse to bend or break.

Now I have the Speaker of the House on my team. Maybe you’ve heard of him before. He’s only two steps away from becoming President. No big deal or anything.

There’s so much winning now that we know Paul Ryan and I share drink preferences that I don’t even know what to do. You think he’s drinking microbrews from places we’ve never heard of? Almost certainly not. He’s a true American and real Americans kick back with the beer of the common man.

Paul Ryan and myself: one of us is one of the most influential people around and the other is the Speaker of the House. Not a bad group to be crushing Miller Lites.

Now the rest of you can go back to choking down that garbage you call “real beer.”
