I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: The Republicans don’t deserve to govern.
Last night, reports surfaced that Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was at an event, raising money for the midterms, where he riled up the crowd by saying he wanted them to watch Nancy Pelosi hand him the Speaker’s gavel after they won the midterms. He followed up by saying, “It will be hard not to hit her with it.”
Read that again.
The top Republican in the House chose to casually suggest violence against the female Speaker of the House because he knew that’s what his supporters and voters want to hear. This, after Trump supporters specifically sought out Pelosi during the January 6th insurrection.
McCarthy is unfit.
It makes it even worse that one of his spoksepeople said the Minority Leader was only “joking.” Oh yeah, sure Kevin, as long as you were just joking — no harm, no foul, right? No. Not even close.
How dare he?
There are many others who are saying what I want to express, and doing it much more eloquently than I can. So let me just leave you all with this:
I was already fired up to do what I could to help Democrats protect their majority in the House, but after this, I am hellbent on making sure Kevin McCarthy NEVER EVER becomes Speaker of the House.
Are you with me?
