House Speaker Paul Ryan sheepishly issued a statement Friday condemning the vulgar 2005 tape of Donald Trump discussing women — and offered the GOP nominee a slap on the wrist for his misogyny.

Ryan (R-Wis.) said in the release that Trump will no longer attend a campaign event Saturday in Wisconsin.

The fall festival would have been the first time the pair had campaigned together since Ryan reluctantly endorsed Trump at the GOP convention in July.

“I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate that he has greater respect for women than the clip suggests.”

The real Donald Trump

The recording released Friday by the Washington Post revealed vilest example of Trump’s views about women yet.

“You can do anything,” Trump tells former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush.

“When you’re a star, they let you do it,” Trump says of his style of seduction. His fame allows him to “grab them by the p—y,” he says.

Trump said his veep choice Mike Pence would attend the Wisconsin event in his place and that he would spend the day in New York preparing for Sunday’s debate against Hillary Clinton.

Other Republicans offered swift rebukes of Trump’s comments.

“No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever,” said Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus, who had stood by Trump through his past provocative comments.

Priebus will aid Trump in his debate prep Saturday alongside New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

“There are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments,” said Arizona Sen. John McCain. “No woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences.”
