Would-be Speaker of the house, current Minority Leader, and hapless California Represenative K-Mac, who is extremely bad at politics, cannot get a break:
Former President Donald Trump called it a “bad decision” by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to completely withdraw from the January 6 Committee…
When the committee was being formed in the aftermath of the Capitol riot, McCarthy tried to appoint Jordan and Banks as members, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected both of them on the grounds that they promoted Trump’s lies about the election. McCarthy furiously withdrew all of his other picks from the committee in retaliation, though his reaction to the events of January 6 have come under renewed intrigue due to his unearthed recorded comments about Trump and the Capitol riot
As the interview went on, Trump seemed to take a subtle dig at McCarthy over the possibility of whether he’ll be Speaker of the House if Republicans sweep the 2022 midterms. Root was saying that Trump endorsed McCarthy for the position when the ex-president interjected “No, I haven’t. No, I haven’t. No, I endorsed him in his race, but I haven’t endorsed anyone for Speaker.”
So let’s see: K-Mac has lost Reps. 3-Names, Bobo, America’s Aging Prom Date, and many other back benchers, and now Hair Füror, which essentially means that if the Republicans get the gavel, it is very likely that K-Mac will have have it in his inept hands.
