Paul Ryan Went To Universal Studios And All We Got Was This 30-Second Clip
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is enjoying his spring break the way all members of Congress should: by coming to Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Ryan kicked off his La La Land vacay by spending Sunday at Universal Studios:
Speaker Paul Ryan Makes Easter Pilgrimage to Universal Studios (VIDEO) https://t.co/LWcckyzVjG— TMZ (@TMZ) April 10, 2017
Was he there as a Harry Potter fan? In support of Despicable Me? Both? Neither? Does he secretly enjoy Dippin' Dots? Who's to say?
We reached out to Universal Studios for comment on the visit, but they offered us none. We also reached out to the Hard Rock Cafe on CityWalk (because, let's be honest, when Paul Ryan goes to Universal Studios he probably eats at the Hard Rock Cafe). They, too, offered us no comment.
Following a deep search, we were unable to find any photographic proof on Instagram that Paul Ryan (re: a celebrity) visited Universal yesterday (re: a tourist-heavy destination), which leads us to believe that it is still possible in this day and age to go off the grid. Just to make sure this is clear, Paul Ryan (whose Instagram hashtag currently has 22,397 posts) visited Universal Studios Hollywood (a hashtag that has 3,090,253 posts) on a warm and clear Sunday (meaning, it was presumably busy) and not a single Instagram post recorded it. Conspiracy theorists: have at it.
We do have this photo of him at LAX, however. So we know he's in Los Angeles...somewhere.
