Remember Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan? The guy who performed horribly in the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries?
According to The Hill, given that he’s been out of the limelight for quite some time now, it appears as if he felt the urge to have a dramatic outburst on the House floor, complete with flailing his arms as he criticized Republican lawmakers for speaking out against the dopey, Democrat-led cancellation of several Dr. Seuss books.
Even more hilarious is that he had the audacity to blame the GOP for not doing enough to “help American workers” during the pandemic, all while leaders of his party crippled the entire economy and flushed millions of jobs down the tube with their extended, non-scientific COVID-19 lockdown measures for the past year.
Watch Ryan’s hissy fit in the video clip below:

“Heaven forbid we pass something that’s going to help the damn workers in the United States of America! Heaven forbid we tilt the balance that has been going in the wrong direction for 50 years,” the Ohio lawmaker screamed, in a toddler-like fashion.
“Now stop talking about Dr. Seuss, and start working with us on behalf of the American workers,” he added.
Ryan, who’s aiming to fill Sen. Rob Portman’s vacant Senate seat next year, apparently needed to find a way to generate a few headlines so that voters would remember who he was.
He went on to slam Republicans for opposing the $15 minimum wage hike, which would have only added to the devastation of small businesses that Democrats started nearly a year ago. But, hey, minor details, right?
“In the late ’70s, a CEO made 35 times the worker. Today it’s three to 400 times the worker,” Ryan said. “And our friends on the other side … running around with their hair on fire.”
Mr. Ryan, the only head of hair on fire right now is yours. And he also forgot to mention some of the Democrats who opposed the minimum wage hike, too. Whoops!
Again, it’s quite obvious to any observer that Ryan is doing what he believes is the best way to mount his Senate campaign, which he’ll more than likely lose to whichever Trump-backed candidate is selected to make a run for the seat.
Ryan, along with most other Democrats, has failed the American public a hundred-fold more than any Republican in Congress, — even the establishment, swamp Republicans have done a better job, which is saying something.
