Anyone who thinks Kevin McCarthy would make an effective Speaker of the House should reassess.
After all it was Kevin McCarthy who famously told Sean Hannity on FOX News that the Clinton investigation on Benghazi was a political move by Republicans in Congress.
Years later it was discovered that Kevin McCarthy was living with pollster Frank Luntz in Washington D.C. despite having a wife and kids in California.
And in May of 2021 McCarthy said, ““I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. That’s all over with.”
It should be no surprise that Kevin McCarthy is the GOP elite’s choice for Speaker of the House.
On Thursday McCarthy described the January 6 protests as a “violent insurrection.”
His goal is to please Democrats and the media.
The Daily Mail reports:
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has conceded that January 6th was a ‘violent insurrection,’ saying he agreed with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s description of that day.
‘No one would disagree with that,’ McCarthy told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
His clarification comes after McCarthy was mocked by Democrats for walking away from an ABC News reporter who was asking him about the Republican National Committee censure of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for serving on the committee investigating the insurrection.
The GOP leader was caught on camera walking away from the reporter who was trying to question him in the halls of the Capitol.
But McCarthy later talked with NBC News and said that anyone who broke into the Capitol on January 6th was not taking part in ‘legitimate political discourse.’ He also said he didn’t think the censure of Cheney and Kinzinger – the two Republicans serving on the panel – was about that.
‘I think anybody, we all know this, who entered this building, that rioted, is not legitimate political discourse,’ he said. ‘But I don’t think that’s what the RNC was talking about when you talk to them.’
McCarthy never spoke out about the stolen election. He voted to certify the 2020 Election for Joe Biden while ignoring the buckets of reported fraud. He also has never acknowledged four Trump supporters were killed that day, at least two by Capitol police.
The GOP should be making plans now for the next leader of the party in the House. McCarthy is no friend of the people and more Democrat than conservative. He is another politician in the GOP who lost his way a long time ago.
