New details have emerged on the phone call House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had with Donald Trump during the Trumpist Domestic Terrorist Attack on the Nation’s Capitol.
“Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”
To which McCarthy reportedly replied:
“Who the f–k do you think you are talking to?”
This is yet more evidence, on the eve of the end of Trump’s record second impeachment trial, of the twice David Duke endorsed twice Popular Vote Loser’s, sociopathic behavior before and during the January 6, 2021, attempted coup at the Nation’s Capitol.
It will make good material for the House Impeachment Managers when they present their closing arguments tomorrow along with reminding the Senators that Trump did not care about the mob wanting to lynch his Vice President.
It is also evidence of how weak and pathetic a leader Kevin McCarthy is.
Within hours of this phone call with Trump, McCarthy was supporting efforts to overturn the Electoral College results in Arizona and Pennsylvania.
Days later, after saying on the floor of the House that Trump bore the blame for some of the events on January 6, 2021, McCarthy led the opposing effort against Trump’s second impeachment.
A week after Joe Biden’s inauguration, it was McCarthy flying to Mara Largo kissing Trump’s tuchas and begging for his help in electing Republicans to the House in 2022 in helping to make him speaker.
McCarthy should have told Trump to go to hell and helped lead the effort to impeach him.
Instead, he groveled and cowered to the worst person ever to reside in the Oval Office in a Faustian bargain to win power in the House of Representatives.
For most decent people, that is not a deal worth selling your soul for.
Kevin McCarthy, with the revelation of the details of this phone call, showed he is not worthy of holding the speaker’s gavel or any other public policy leadership position.
He needs to retire.
