Speaker of the House Paul Ryan recently told audience members at a fundraising event that a family of woodchucks had moved into his Chevy Suburban, munching on the wiring and rendering the car useless.
“My car was eaten by animals,” Ryan said, to laughs from an audience at an event hosted by The Economic Club of Washington D.C. “It’s just dead.”
As a top congressional leader, Ryan has a security detail and hasn’t been allowed to drive in three years. His car was parked at his mother’s house in Wisconsin, and when she came back from a trip to Florida, she discovered it wouldn’t start.
“So I towed it into the dealer, they put it up, and they realized that a family of woodchucks lived in the underbody of my Suburban,” Ryan said.
Or as one one right wing commenter said: “WoodCUCKS”
