Trump rally attendees call for 'complete idiot' Paul Ryan to be fired

Supporters at President Trump's rally in Harrisburg, Pa. on Saturday agreed on two things: Trump deserves high marks for his first 100 days in office, and House Speaker Paul Ryan needs to go.

"Ryan is a complete idiot," said rally-goer John Knepper speaking with AOL.com. "If I was Trump, boom, he'd be out of there in no time."

Tensions between establishment Republicans and Trump have seemingly heated up since the administration and Congress failed to repeal and replace Obamacare shortly after the president took office. And while the Trump does not have the power to remove Ryan as speaker, some in the Republican camp are calling for him to step down.

In March, after a health care repeal bill was pulled from the floor of the House, President Trump urged the public to watch "Justice with Judge Jeanine" on FOX News the same night Judge Pirro called for Ryan to step down, quickly spurring speculation that the president wanted Ryan out.

Supporters at the president's 100-day rally seem to be on Pirro's side.

Bill Hepl, a Trump supporter from Pennsylvania told AOL.com, "I think Paul Ryan is holding him back ... You have to get rid of Ryan and a lot of these judges are screwing everything up."

Over the weekend the president thanked FOX Business Network's Lou Dobbs for saying his first 100 days were "unmatched in recent presidential history."

During the same segment Dobbs spent a considerable amount of time slamming the speaker of the house, saying Ryan is "working against the president and his agenda at every turn, frustrating the entire GOP conference and indeed the American people."

"If I was Trump, boom, he'd be out of there in no time."

Rally attendee named John C. echoed Dobbs' claim saying, "To most people who support Trump and the cause, he seems to be a nuisance."

However, the new administration's inability, thus far, to repeal and replace Obamacare has not stymied the support from his base. John told AOL.com that just having Trump in the White House is enough to give the former reality TV star high marks for his first 100 days in office. "It's the idea of what Trump represents, that's all he has to do, he doesn't have to do anything else."

"I think he's being hammered by both sides. He's got obstacles on the liberal side and he's got a few on his side," said Trump voter Roger Frost. "He's got a few Republicans he has to reel in."

Frost says he's still proud of the president regardless of obstructionist tactics from the Democrats and establishment Republicans. "He's the first president I've ever been excited for."
