In an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) (Rapey McForehead) hit back at Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) accusing him of lying about the source of Gaetz’s frustration with the speaker.
Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of The Beat, Gaetz was shown a clip of McCarthy earlier in the day discussing the dissension within his ranks. The speaker claimed Gaetz is working with a Democratic member to undermine him.
“Matt is working with Eric Swalwell, but let me be very clear,” McCarthy said. “Matt is upset about an ethics complaint. I don’t care what they threaten against me. I’m not gonna interject into an independent committee like ethics, and I’m not going to put Swalwell back on the Intel committee. So, they can do whatever they want.”
That is an abject lie from a sad and pathetic man who lies to hold on to power. He lied to get power in January when he made this agreement, and he’s lying now about the basis for breach. And you know what? Eventually, the lying has to come to an end and the votes are gonna start on a motion to vacate.
I certainly hope that instead of that path, the speaker comes into compliance on term limits, balanced budgets, and single-subject spending bills. If that happens, there will be no motion to vacate, which would totally cut against his argument that this is somehow about an ethics matter of, like, the lies of yesteryear.
