In the heat of the moment, and without thinking it through, a lot of people say things that they either don’t mean or turn out to not be true.
Take House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for example. On January 13 he had some very harsh things to say about President Trump and the role he played in the January 6 riot where people invaded the Capitol Building.
…he said that Trump “bears responsibility for [the] attack on Congress by mob rioters.” Trump gave a speech to thousands of supporters on January 6 in which he claimed that the results of the elections were fraudulent, and urged his supporters to amass at the Capitol while Congress certified the results.
While the president did make such claims, he never once called for violence, invasion, or any sort of insurrection in that speech.
On Thursday, McCarthy had something entirely different to say about the entire incident.
“I don’t believe he provoked it if you listen to what he said at the rally,” McCarthy said on Thursday. When asked whether Trump would continue to exert influence over the Republican Party, McCarthy responded that “Every former president still has a role within their party.”
“This president brought a lot of great success,” McCarthy added. “He brought people to the party who hadn’t been involved before and he should continue to engage in that way.”
Why McCarthy changed his tune on this issue is a mystery. However, his words stand in stark contrast to the rest of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is busy in a spat with his Democrat counterpart for control of the upper chamber since the numbers are even. He is still blaming President Trump for the mob’s actions even if many of the leaders of the day were proven to be members of Antifa, and the president DID request that the MAGA supporters leave the Capitol Grounds.
“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals, who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty,” McConnell said in a floor speech on Tuesday. “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government that they did not like.”

The so called Republican leadership is a total joke! McConnell needs to be removed and MaCarthy really turned his back on President Trump. We will never forget those actions.

Just when you think you like someone, and find his allegiance to the country pretty much matches your own, they find a way to destroy that trust. I am of the opinion one politician is no different than the other, party be damned. I loved Trump simply because he was not a politician, spoke his mind, would tell us exactly what he thought, and didn’t mind stepping on toes, even in his own party. What we need is someone to take a hard, heavy boot to the toes of some of these politicians and kick their respective asses to the… Read more »
