    greed, and Ryan is nothing if not 100% phony.  That photo-op of him washing clean dishes at a soup kitchen says all we really need to know about this loathsome toad.  He hates the poor, but isn't above using them to help him get yet more power.  Once he gets it, he uses it to kick them, all the while mouthing platitudes to excuse his soullessness.

    Lowliness is young ambition's ladder,
    Whereto the climber-upward turns his face;
    But when he once attains the upmost round,

    Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees
    By which he did ascend.
