(PatrioticPost.com)- Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Minority Leader of the House, laughed at reporters who inquired whether he would support former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign.
Trump made the announcement at his Mar-a-Lago property in Florida on Tuesday evening.
The next day, Scott Wong of NBC News asked McCarthy if he was prepared to endorse Trump as he and other reporters chased him on Capitol Hill.
He was asked again by another reporter if McCarthy would endorse Trump, to which he replied, “You people are crazy.” McCarthy then declared that America’s comeback had begun.
Yes, the media is crazy. But Kevin McCarthy will never answer a question when the answer doesn’t benefit him.
Reports show that the night before, Trump announced that to restore America’s greatness and glory, he declared his campaign for president of the United States.
McCarthy was nominated for Speaker of the House by the House GOP on Tuesday. Numerous members of the House Republican Conference have already stated that they will not support McCarthy’s bid for Speaker. McCarthy can only afford to lose a small number of votes from his party, given the GOP’s projected slim majority in the House.
According to reports, McCarthy has pledged to remove Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., from the House Foreign Affairs Committee to garner GOP support for the top House leadership position. McCarthy, along with several other Republican legislators, had argued for months that the three Democrats should be removed from their committee due to vile or inflammatory remarks.
McCarthy also demanded the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for the U.S.-Mexico border fiasco, threatening his impeachment.
Reports show Donald Trump and McCarthy have had an intermittent relationship. McCarthy was entirely supportive during Trump’s presidency. However, after the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, McCarthy criticized Trump, believing him responsible for the few rioters.
However, McCarthy then visited Trump at Mar-a-Lago, persuading him to aid the Republican drive to retake the House in 2022.
Kevin McCarthy is self-absorbed and should be dismissed.
