KevinMcCarthy

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy represents one of the poorest districts in California, yet he opposes relief for his constituents. We must rid the House of Kevin McCarthy See full episodes here. There was a striking article titled “Biden’s aid programs help buttress McCarthy’s district despite GOP leader’s complaints about ‘socialist’ spending” in...

Armed with a civil war sword, Bruce Westerman (R-AR) crouched on a commode, ready for a last stand because the lost cause insurrectionists were crashing and trashing Capitol offices. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy abandoned Westerman to an uncertain fate, because McCarthy’s security deemed him not important enough to save. ““Westerman, the only...

It’s time to allow the noble elephant, which was long ago conscripted into service as the symbol of the modern GOP, to go live on a sanctuary or something. Because we’ve found the perfect totem for today’s Republican Party: a terrified loser sitting on a toilet clutching a Civil War...

Republicans desperately want you to forget the events of Jan. 6 and their aftermath. Unfortunately, the guy who caused the riot (at least according to Mitch McConnell) is still the face of their party, and so they have to do an awkward little dance where they pretend he’s actually not a...

The GOP hunt for unicorns continues as only the southern border seems to leak Middle Eastern terrorists (not). This fiction was floated during the “caravan” scare pimped during the midterm election and is a continuation of the “Muslim Ban” from the first month of the Trump regime. “Sir Lanka” (whoever...

GOP leadership is bitterly divided these days, over whether to marginalize the dyspeptic land squid who tried to violently overthrow our 244-year-old republic or to fully embrace him. Believe it or not, the embracers are winning—and it’s not particularly close. So you get surreal and awkward moments like the following, where...

The result of the latest Trump impeachment trial was a fait accompli when Mike Pence was pulled from his mother’s womb, saw his shadow, and scurried back home like a frightened baby wallaby for six more weeks of gestation. The evidence now makes it abundantly clear that Donald Trump incited...

Well, this seems significant. CNN: In an expletive-laced phone call with House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy while the Capitol was under attack, then-President Donald Trump said the rioters cared more about the election results than McCarthy did.   “Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election...

The GOP members of the House are livid with McCarthy for not removing Greene—not because they have a problem with her anti-Semitism or lunacy, but because they are now facing a vote they don’t want to take. They either stand with Greene, and own QAnon, or stand against her, and...

Kaaaaaaaa-BOOM! Nancy Pelosi (D-Not Fucking Around) just referred to GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy as “Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA).” And that’s not all.

Mr. Naiveté is here to tell you he thought maybe, just maybe, the very people who suffered the brunt of Donald Trump’s bumblefuck putsch might stand firm in their revulsion. But of course they didn’t. The taste of spray-tan and pocky buttocks is simply too tantalizing for most Republicans to resist, and...

More Charlie than Kevin, McCarthy now tries to polish a turd about the insurrection, tiptoeing a fine line between Trumpists and “post-trumpist” GOP constituencies. McCarthy is just not good with shiny objects to distract the media, as he defaults to the GOP’s more covert racial messaging. x Wherein @GOPLeader indignantly refuses...

The Malignant Mangoturd is trying to upstage President-elect Joe Biden one last time before he becomes President Biden (yea!) by staging a big farewell at Andrews Air Force base. There were already signs that wasn’t going to go well: While he's eagerly anticipating his military-style send-off from Joint Base Andrews...

The Incompetent Insurrectionist this morning tried to claim that the rioters were really “antifa” and not his supporters at all, the same way some conservative commentators have been doing since the failed putsch on Wednesday. He did this in private (probably because the rioters would go ballistic if they heard...

Yup. https://twitter.com/JRehling/status/1226294936351363073?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Honestly, this pervasive, lingering myth that Republicans are great for the economy and Democrats are poison never ceases to baffle me. The opposite is true. On every important measure — GDP growth, job creation, deficit spending, business investment growth — Democrats beat Republicans’ brains out, and they have for...

Once again Trump has stepped on his own dictatorship.

Because, you know, people have already pretty much made up their minds on this, and they don’t agree with the...
