    Donald Trump and former Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney have been engaged in a war of words over her new memoir, in which she criticizes the former president and other Republicans. Among Cheney's claims is that then-House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Trump became depressed and stopped eating after he lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden, which Trump has denied. Trump has since hit back in a series of messages including one that said she lost her Congressional seat by the largest margin in history. A post by Donald Trump on Truth Social on Wednesday, December 6, stated that Liz...

    The Republican presidential primary calendar won’t officially kick off until the Jan. 15, 2024, Iowa caucuses, but former President Trump’s dominant position in the polls has already sparked chatter about who could join him on a general election ticket. Trump is leading his primary rivals by an average of 60 percent at the national level and more than 20 percent in state surveys, creating a sense that the nomination is his to lose. Some have started to look beyond the primary calendar and toward a rematch between Trump and President Biden, with former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and others weighing...

    Representative Kevin McCarthy, the former GOP House speaker, said that if former President Donald Trump secures the Republican nomination in 2024, as most assume he will, he ought to designate political rival Nikki Haley as his vice president. “If I was a political person, and I was going to advise somebody, you’re going to pick the vice president that’s about addition, not subtraction. So you’re not going to pick somebody that already equates to you,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told Andrew Ross Sorkin. “Now if I was picking for purely political decisions, what it looks like today is the anti-Trump vote is...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is coming under fire on social media over a wild new claim about his 2021 meeting with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago. McCarthy is often blamed for helping to revive Trump’s political fortunes by flying to Florida to pose for a grinning photo op weeks after MAGA fans stormed the U.S. Capitol and tried to stop the certification of the election. A new book by former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) says she called him out at the time. “Mar-a-Lago? What the hell, Kevin?” Cheney asked, according to CNN , which obtained an advance copy. “They’re really worried,”...

But McCarthy would not go quietly. Gaetz and Mace also revealed that McCarthy...

    Representative Tim Burchett (R-TN) claims former House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) shoved him while his back was turned. NPR congressional correspondent Claudia Grisales first reported the encounter on X (formerly Twitter), saying it happened when she spoke with Burchett after the GOP’s conference meeting on Tuesday. Burchett was one of the House Republicans who supported the push to oust McCarthy as Speaker, and according to him and Grisales, McCarthy struck at him which led to an intense encounter. Burchett's back was to McCarthy and his detail walking by in the hallway, then the lunge. Burchett responded jokingly as McCarthy...

    Speaking specifically of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, McCarthy said the Republican Party would be “tremendously” better off if Gaetz lost his House seat. He had a similar comment to make about South Carolina’s Nancy Mace, predicting that she’d lose her seat in next year’s election. “If you’ve watched her, just her philosophy, and the flip-flopping, I don’t believe she wins reelection,” McCarthy said.

    House Republican Vice Chair Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) became the chamber’s Speaker on Wednesday, three weeks after Speaker Kevin McCarthy was ousted.Johnson became his conference’s fourth Speaker nominee on Tuesday, and he takes over in the midst of multiple international crises, most notably in Israel, Gaza and Ukraine.

    The sad truth is that some people in our party are stupid. Statistically, that is inevitable since the parties are about evenly split. When you have 50% of the population, you’re going to have a certain percentage of the idiots. Well, the Republican Party is undoubtedly statistically within the band of normal, because we sure have our share of nitwits. And I’m tired of them. SNIP>>>>> The reality is that we somehow managed to get a Speaker last January and that Speaker was imperfect. Kevin McCarthy was not the guy I wanted for the job in the abstract. He was...

    Liz Cheney has slammed ousted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for 'elevating white supremacists and anti-Semites' as part of his leadership. Cheney was defeated in a primary in 2022 by Harriet Hageman in a race that was heavily influenced by her criticism of Donald Trump. The daughter of ex-Vice President Dick Cheney said McCarthy has muddled the party by following Trump's lead. 'I wish that it were surprising,' she told CNN. 'You know, what we've seen is a result of really the leadership decisions that Kevin McCarthy made back after the 2020 election and certainly after January 6.' 'And, you know,...

As we reported just under two weeks ago, McCarthy was ousted by House members in a Motion to Vacate by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). As my colleague, Ward Clark wrote on Friday, Jordan defeated Rep.
