McCarthy is caught on tape with a statement he and his office has denied he made re 6JAN. (For those who have not been keeping up)
What are the odds that “The Office of the 45th President” releases a ‘statement’ today, Friday 22APR?

The Dems keep thinking that the Rep/con lies, and false accusations, are so obvious that they need not defend themselves against such, which would be beneath them to do so. They've had this attitude for yrs and this is where it's gotten them. Going over the falls and thinking maybe they should reverse paddle. Dem/libs, always thinking about the politics, never acting in the arena and thus getting slain in the coliseum. Who do you think the crowd's thumbs will go up or down for?

Rep/cons get away with what they say and do because their Rep/con supporters believe in them, and Dems don't fight back and message the facts viscerally to the public.

This should be a leading story on every news program. But it won't be. As you've noted, most democrats will shrug and move on. The ones that don't will be labeled extremists or antifa or whatever they're calling us these days.

“I’ve had it with this guy,” McCarthy told fellow GOP leaders days after the attack, according to the report. With Democrats moving forward with plans to impeach Trump for a second time, McCarthy said that he planned to call the president, according to the audio recording.

A McCarthy spokesman told the Times that the California Republican “never said he’d call Trump to say he should resign.”


In a statement Thursday morning, McCarthy called the paper’s reporting “totally false and wrong” and accused the news media of “doing everything it can to further a liberal agenda.”


Am I going to believe you or my lying ears?

If there isn't any legal culpability the GOP sheep will just shrug it off as a nothingburger. They are okay with being lied to as long as the liar has an R next to their name.

What it does do is put McCarthy's line to House Speaker in jeopardy. A lot of those hard-core right-wingers would like to put someone like Jordan in that spot and this gives them some ammo.

Of course they'd throw a sexual deviant in there.

A blatant, outright, caught with his pants down lie.
And Republicans will still support the slime ball McCarthy.
Just another significant tell in the downward slide of the GOP.

Kevin McCarthy says of Trump: "I had it with this guy. What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it."

How long before we learn that Mccarthy voted for Biden?

It was the lead story this morning. As it should be.

But, this is why the republicans are swine. They can say it in private, but in public they lie, and they pretend insurrection didn't happen.

Lying bastards who care more about their party then their country.

What should be the leading story? That he lied? Or what he lied about?

Oh hell no. I tuned into Laura Ingraham to see if she'd even mention it. Nope, she was going on and on about Obama.
