Charlie McCarthy's cousin Kevin bailed on colleague during the Insurrection

3 min read

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 licensed forester in Congress, touts planting trees as the most ‘pragmatic, proactive approach’ to removing planet-warming carbon from the atmosphere.”. Chances are Westerman was prepared to slash his way out of the Capitol that 6th of January even as the more important question is the conversation then between McCarthy and previous guy.

“After the House chamber was evacuated on Jan. 6, Mr. McCarthy retreated to his Capitol office with a colleague, Rep. Bruce Westerman, Republican of Arkansas. When it became evident the rioters were breaking in, Mr. McCarthy's security detail insisted he leave. But Mr. Westerman was left behind in Mr. McCarthy's inner work area, he said in a recent interview,” the article reported. “For protection, Mr. Westerman said he commandeered a Civil War sword from an office display, barricaded himself in Mr. McCarthy's private bathroom and waited out the siege while crouched on the toilet.”





In other perfidy, Wayne LaPierre could kill off the GOP as an unintended consequence of his poor marksmanship being no better than his leadership.


In other bailing, the writer of a NY Post lie about Kamala Harris books at the border chose to resign over it.
