Soup Kitchen

Paul Ryan DID

Wash Dirty Dishes

10/16/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

101612_brian_antal_launchThe guy who runs the Ohio soup kitchen that Paul Ryan appeared at this weekend tells TMZ ... contrary to his earlier statement, Ryan DID get dirty with dirty dishes.

Brian Antal tells us ... the V.P. hopeful was only at the kitchen for 10 to 15 minutes and only interacted with one of their "clients."

Antal -- who wasn't at the soup kitchen at the time of the Ryan visit -- said his volunteers left some dirty dishes in the kitchen for Ryan to clean.

But when we asked him if the Ryan people had orchestrated the dish-cleaning stunt, Antal said, "No comment."

There is video floating around, showing Ryan giving a pan one scrub -- and that was the extent of the washing.

FYI, because TMZ purposely left it off......the guy quoted who runs the soup kitchen DOES vote democratic. He has in the last 14 elections. Check out the Washington Post, who did their homework, unlike TMZ.

I am an equal opportunity hater; can't stand Biden or Ryan, but he F'ing crashed a soup kitchen? I gotta let out a big old Joe Biden head tossing mouth open laugh on that one. Great PR work, where the St Vincent de Paul guy who works his ass off to feed the hungry now has to do damage control. Good job Ryan PR machine, not quite well done.

At least Ryan cleaned a pot or pan, as opposed to the liberals who are eating the food at that pantry and then NOT helping to clean their own dishes. I'm sure the liberals that eat the food there think that they are ENITITLED to eat anything they want so long as anyone making over $200,000 is mandated to pay for it. God forbid that any person not wanting to work should even consider having to work, it's unamerican according to the Obama doctrine...........if you don't want to work, you shouldn't have to work!

I'm sure the Ryans didn't just show up with a camera and bludgeoned a "volunteer" into allowing them in the kitchen. Anyone ask the guy who runs the kitchen which candidate he's supporting, hmm? Sounds like Ryan's people arranged a photo op that was turned into this. And Obama and Michelle are just ordinary folks, too, who just happen to get their pic snapped at some local burger joint, eating French fries. Uh-huh. And TMZ doesn't run pics it snaps that are less than truthful? Uh-huh.

It's wonderful that he has added a skill to fall back on when he has nothing to do in December.
