Be more Paul Ryan, Paul Ryan. You can’t. Of course this dork fucks up a gavel bang. Look, the gavel bang is the ultimate power move. You’re literally the star of the show, everybody looking at you, banging a big ass symbolic hammer for the sake of making noise to say “I have won, I am the man, I will make loud noise to celebrate being the man” and Paul Ryan fucks it up. Paul Ryan looks like a huge fucking loser doing it somehow.
He starts out fine. Standard gavel bang form out of the gate.
Then it’s all downhill from here. This look of self-satisfaction is embarrassing. Act like you’ve gavel banged before buddy.
Follows this up with about as poor of a gavel release as I’ve seen then right into his dweeb clap.
And… of course… in Paul Ryan fashion… the gavel tumbles all over the place and he’s left looking like an idiot. That classic “did I really just fuck up a victorious gavel bang” look.
Would be nice for Paul Ryan just once to appear like a normal person. Just once. Even close would be good. He’s honestly never really even been close.
PS — This is how you gavel bang.
