Paul Ryan's 'must-see' photos from July include him holding a pocket Constitution

After Khan Speech, $1 Pocket Constitution Becomes Best-Seller

House Speaker Paul Ryan took a moment on Monday to share some 'must-see' moments from July, and one photo in particular has people talking.

In the lead photo Ryan can be seen holding up a pocket Constitution. The July 6 image was captured during a press conference at the Republican National Committee.

Searches for the $1 pocket constitution and purchases on Amazon have surged since a military war hero's father, Khizr Khan, gave a moving speech on Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention. Khan criticized Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and questioned whether he has ever read the Constitution -- and then offered him his pocket copy to borrow.

In addition, Ryan's "must-see" photos include him wishing Bob Dole a happy birthday, meeting with heroes from the Orlando nightclub shooting and talking to legendary Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith.

Check out all of Ryan's "must-see" moments below:
