House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Sunday complained that Democrats had heckled him during his 8-hour floor speech.
While speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, McCarthy explained that he had given the lengthy speech to prevent Democrats from passing President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
“The amount of heckling that they would try to do to stop me from being able to talk,” the GOP leader recalled. “But what we really found, Maria, with one-party rule in one year, this big government socialism isn’t working.”
Dear Leader McCarthy—
You were not “giving a speech” to oppose passage of the bipartisan bill. You knew the following:
That the bill would pass. Speaker Pelosi would not have put a bill on the floor without having the votes.
That you weren’t actually speechifying against the bill. You were stumping for election as Speaker Pelosi’s successor.
You may not know the following:
That you are a really lousy orator. For example, Norm Ornstein got so bored with your ineffectual wandering off topic and thrashing about in the weeds that he gave up after just 3 hours.
That you are widely acknowledged to be an intellectually feeble liar whose words no rational person believes.
That you are widely recognized as a wannabe bully who is, in fact, a craven weakling. (We all remember how Paul Ryan ate your lunch; we know what you said in that 1/6 phone call to Trump; and we know how you tucked your tail between your legs and ran whimpering down to Mar-a-Lago.)
Your whimpering again–this time about how a young woman in just her 2nd term in the House is bullying big, macho “Wannabe Speaker” McCarthy–confirms everything I said above.
