Sandra Lee Really Doesn’t Like Paul Ryan: ‘I Can’t Stomach Him’
After badass cook Sandra Lee kicked House Speaker Paul Ryan off her cooking segment on Fox and Friends a couple weeks ago, saying he “had to go” before going on air, then later saying she doesn’t agree with anything he stands for, our girl is opening up even more.
“At first what occurred to me is that we are both from Wisconsin,” Sandra said to Page Six. “And I realized he is the one thing from Wisconsin that I cannot tolerate or stomach. I just do not stand for anything he stands for. I was so angry I was shaking, and I never had that experience before in my life or on any show. I love ‘Fox & Friends.’ That was the only time that happened to me. I do not get angry for too long. He left the set, and I was back to Sandra Lee.”
She continued: “I have been really surprised about the reaction . . . I think it is because I have never stated my opinion. Just because I chose not to state my opinion does not mean I do not have one. When it comes to health care or childhood hunger issues, I am not going to be quiet, tolerant or silent about my experiences or my convictions.”
At the time, a source told Page Six that “Ryan was on the segment before Sandra, and the hosts asked him to hang around for Sandra’s cooking feature . . . But in the break before her demo, she said to Ryan and some others there, ‘I need you to go away so I can collect my thoughts, prepare, and get ready for the segment.’”
