Trump describes Kevin McCarthy like he refers to Pence, only less explosively than Gwyneth Paltrow

Grabbing goop everywhere. When you’re a star they let you do it.

This Gwyneth Paltrow candle didn’t pass the smell test, according to a report.

A “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle that the actress peddles on Goop exploded into flames in the living room of a UK woman who won the odoriferous product in a quiz, the Sun reported.

“The candle exploded and emitted huge flames, with bits flying everywhere,” Jody Thompson, 50, told the outlet.

“I’ve never seen anything like it. The whole thing was ablaze and it was too hot to touch. There was an inferno in the room,” the media consultant from Kilburn, North London, added.

 After replaying the remarks from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) during the impeachment debate, Tapper noted: “Zero acknowledgment that McCarthy himself, for two months, pushed that very same big-lie rhetoric.” He continued: “McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and 124 other House Republicans went so far as to sign on to that joke of a lawsuit from the Texas attorney general which lent further credibility to the big lie.”
The Jan. 6 insurrection did not come out of the blue, nor was it the work of only one man. “Millions of Americans infected with the virus of disinformation,” Tapper said. “It was a joint effort by far-right hate groups that the president has been playing footsie with for years and radicalized, infected Trump supporters and MAGA media.” Tapper added: “Multiple dead bodies later, no contrition, no apologies, no acknowledgment of what they did until those who spread the big lie worked to correct it putting out a vaccine of facts and truth.”
There you have it: One congressman is a dedicated public servant who puts personal tragedy aside and speaks with a patriot’s devotion, knowing his own obligation to defend and protect the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. The other is a cowardly nonentity who fails to take his oath seriously and allows himself to be swept up in the tide of white supremacy and authoritarian contempt for elections. Raskin leads citizens; McCarthy incites and then follows the mob.
