LOU DOBBS (HOST): How did you react, Byron, when you heard the Republican nominee say he's going to take the shackles off?

BYRON YORK: Well, you know, he is who he is, and I'm not surprised that he's doing this. Doesn't seem like a good idea to be attacking the leadership of your party this way --

DOBBS: But wait -- wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Since you used the word “fair,” I have to interject here. It is Paul Ryan who's started attacking him again. It is Paul Ryan --

YORK: No, I said it doesn't seem like a good idea to do this. He should -- Trump should just go ahead and --

DOBBS: You said “started.” You didn't think it was fair.

YORK: Anyway, I'm sorry if I said it, I didn't think it was fair, I said I didn't think it was a good idea to attack the leadership of the party. Anyway, the situation for Trump is dire right now.


DOBBS: He has the party working against him. He has the liberal national media working against him, and in concert with the Democratic nominee, I mean, are you kidding me? What is he supposed to do? Sit there and take it?

I think he's the guy representing the people here. The fight in the Republican Party is between the voters who elected him as their nominee, and the GOP leadership, the fact that they can't come to terms with it, specifically the weak-kneed Paul Ryan, who is becoming a creature of fiction right now. What do you want him to do, Byron? Just tell me, what would you have him do?

YORK: Well, I'll tell you --

DOBBS: I would have Ryan by the nape of the neck and tell him to talk about unity and act like a leader instead of a weak-kneed cut and runner.


DOBBS: Paul Ryan should be -- shouldn't be leading anything other than perhaps a procession of some unimportant event, which I can't think of right now.
