Trump Knocks 'Foolish' Kevin McCarthy for Not Having Anyone on Jan 6 Committee

Source: Mediate

Former President Donald Trump called it a “bad decision” by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to completely withdraw from the January 6 Committee.

Trump railed against the committee during a recent interview with Wayne Allyn Root, wherein he took shots at Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), called the investigation a “one-sided kangaroo court,” and bashed his former attorney general, Bill Barr, for torpedoing his election lies. As Trump touted the “great warriors” in his political corner like Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN), he went back to talking about the committee to say “Unfortunately, a bad decision was made.”

“This committee, it was a bad decision not to have representation on that committee,” Trump said. “That was a very, very foolish decision because they try to pretend like they’re legit, and only when you get into the inner workings you say ‘what kind of a thing is this?’ Just a one-sided witch hunt.”

When the committee was being formed in the aftermath of the Capitol riot, McCarthy tried to appoint Jordan and Banks as members, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected both of them on the grounds that they promoted Trump’s lies about the election. McCarthy furiously withdrew all of his other picks from the committee in retaliation, though his reaction to the events of January 6 have come under renewed intrigue due to his unearthed recorded comments about Trump and the Capitol riot.

1. That is why Speaker Pelosi has been & is the best tactical politician, in the House ever

She gave McCarthy the rope to hang himself. McCarthy did.

7. Perhaps mccarthy & trump both took the rope to hang themselves - with trump

now changing his mind and probably lying about his earlier role.

[In any event, trump's tantrum is evidence that trump thinks the Committee is hurting trump - big]

2. Trump can always volunteer to testify under oath.

I wish someone would say to his face:

"Go on Donald, tell your side of the story, under oath, under questioning by informed investigators.

Think of the ratings!

After all, Hillary did it, so why don't you? Or don't you have the guts?"

God, I wish I could project my voice into one of the "journalists" he likes to scam. His reaction would be so precious.

Just say to him:

His "brain" (sic) would do this:

8. He says he wants "equal time"

No one is stopping him. I'm sure the committee would love to have him testify. "Hey Donald, just think of the ratings!!!" That should motivate him.

31. True

But you know Trump will have a hard time resisting the temptation to be the center of attention on TV screens all over America. "No one gets ratings like me, no one!" Of course, he'd probably refer to himself in the third person though.

20. E.J Dionne just wrote column thanking McCarthy for preventing wingnuts from obstructing or

draining the committee. Pelosi accepted 3 of his choices and rejected 2 because they were deeply involved on Jan 6. McCarthy thought the committee would lack legitimacy if he ordered Republicans to stay off the committee, but with almost all witnesses being Republicans, that is hard to argue.

21. Five bucks says that Chump was the one who told McCarthy to put Jordan on that committee

Of course Chump would never admit it NOW. He needs somebody to blame all this on, and McCarthy is an easy target.

Daring you to tell the truth, Kevin McCarthy! Tell the country that Chump made you do it.

To let it fall out this way. The orange-utan gets what’s coming, the Rs are finally rid of him, McConnell and his crew keep their hands clean all while getting to blame the Ds in the midterms. Neat!

Does trump ever do anything else...maybe, just maybe...we should ignore this pathetic traitor, stop reporting every little thing he says, it's never new or original...so maybe we could just let go for a while, his time is coming soon enough.

28. Jeffrey Dahmer was convicted in a one sided witch hunt

Why wasn't anyone on the jury pointing out that it tastes like chicken. The Nuremburg trials could have brought in some Nazis to argue that no Jews were harmed at the camps.

Sometimes there is no counterpoint.

30. Great work sticking up for Trump, Kevin.

Oh, by the way, don't be surprised if you see "Hang Kevin McCarthy" signs at the next rally.
Its just Trump's way of saying 'I Love You'.
