Kevin McCarthy Claims Nobody is Questioning Legitimacy of 2020 Election

Source: Mediaite

By Ken MeyerMay 12th, 2021, 1:57 pm

Either House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a temporary bout of amnesia on Wednesday, or he lied about the “Big Lie” by suggesting nobody is questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election.

McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke to the White House press pool on Monday after an infrastructure meeting with President Joe Biden. This took place after McCarthy conducted the House Republican vote that morning to force Congresswoman Liz Cheney out of her role as GOP conference chairwoman because she refuses to fall in line behind former President Donald Trump and his 2020 election lies.

As McCarthy took questions, NBC’s Kristen Welker asked him about all of this, and he answered “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. I think that is all over with. We’re sitting here with the president today.”

McCarthy’s statement completely ignores the fact that ever since Trump lost the election, he has falsely claimed over, and over, and over, and over again that the election was fraudulent and stolen from him. It was that rhetoric that fueled Trump’s supporters into violently attacking the U.S. Capitol to overturn the election’s certification, and Cheney has held Trump personally responsible for that ever since it happened.

Kevin McCarthy sends out text bashing 'Corrupt Joe Biden' within minutes of finishing White House infrastructure meeting

Brad Reed
May 12, 2021

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Wednesday wasted no time bashing President Joe Biden shortly after attending a bipartisan White House meeting about a proposed infrastructure deal.

As noted by Newsweek White House reporter Elizabeth Crisp, McCarthy's campaign sent out an auto text message to supporters after the bipartisan infrastructure meeting ended in which he accuse Biden of pursuing a "radical Socialist agenda."

"I just met with Corrupt Joe Biden and he's STILL planning to push his radical Socialist agenda onto the American people," McCarthy wrote. "I need EVERY single patriot to step up... Fight back."

Crisp contrasted McCarthy's text to a White House readout of the meeting that stated Biden "enjoyed hosting" congressional leaders including McCarthy and "spent nearly two hours working with them to identify areas where they could collaborate."

who cares if it contradicts something he said five minutes ago, much less something he's been spouting for five month, now.

If trump calls him after hearing this McCarthy will again claim the election was not legitimate.

6. Oh I get it

He had to force Liz Cheney out of her leadership position because she kept complaining that Republicans were lying about the election being illegitimate. Yet according to Kevin, "nobody" was questioning the legitimacy of the election. So that must make Liz Cheney, what just some crazy woman yelling about things that don't exist? Well then no wonder he had to get rid of her!

Oh, the gaslighting...

I'm just sort of stunned. He actually says one thing out of one side of his mouth and then something different out of the other. You
can't make deals with people like this. They are totally untrustworthy. I'm just sitting her shaking my head. How can we possibly move forward? This is truly bizzaro world.

24. It's telling that he had to say "Corrupt Joe Biden"

That means his hold on the MAGA crowd is tenuous so he has to double-down on the name-calling to keep them from revolting. Not from being revolting, mind you, as that ship sailed long ago.

30. What happened to Truth in Adverstising?

How can "news" networks broadcast utter bullshit?
How can the Washington Press Corp not call this crap out?

McCarthy himself lay the blame for the insurrection right at Trump's feet the night of the insurrection. Why isn't that clip played 24/7? Why isn't footage of the insurrection played every time clueless, lying republican representatives weave fantasy of whole cloth and pretend it was a tour.

Is this why the GOP doesn't want high speed broadband to reach rural rubes and will vote against modernizing our infrastructure

and found out 2020 was likely the most legitimate election in US history. Every state was doing things strictly by the book because they knew sore loser assholes like you and your porcine Jebus on earth were going to cry foul, no matter what.

Kevin, honey, your idol just plain LOST. It happens, especially in politics. Some day, may it be soon, it is going to happen to you, too, unless you pick up your marbles and resign. It's something everybody going into politics needs to learn, that it's possible to cheat six ways from Sunday like the Republicans did and still lose, especially when a majority know you're jerks.

Kevin, you really need to stop flogging that long dead horse and stop making such an arse of yourself. You might not have much of a memory but we do.

38. McCarthy was captured on video defecating on the House floor

He dropped trou, grunted a few times, then laid cable right on the marble floor -- all in front of the cameras.

When asked about it later he stated with confidence "That's not my shit."
