House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy appeared on 60 Minutes last night and was caught rather unprepared by interviewer Scott Pelley.
PELLEY: What do you make of this exchange? President Zelensky says, “We are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.” And President Trump replies, “I would like you to do us a favor though.”
MCCARTHY: You just added another word.
PELLEY: No, it’s in the transcript.
MCCARTHY: He said- “I’d like you to do a favor though”?
PELLEY: Yes, it’s in the White House transcript.
Why wouldn’t a prominent GOP leader not know the factual words in the transcript of the call between Trump and the Ukrainian president? Is it possible even conservative leaders rely too much on Fake News from conservative media, who conveniently omit pertinent facts from the public?
