Elise Stefanik knows that Trump will do anything to stay in power, including tormenting a civil war, and she’s okay with that — for now — which raises the question: how long will it be until the toad-eater kicks her master to the side of the road? — wfw
Sarah Burris (RawStory) reports that Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is feeling the heat after it was revealed that he wanted former President Donald Trump out after the January 6th MAGA riots.
According to recordings released to New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, McCarthy was pushing Donald Trump to resign, while also making it clear to the caucus that he opposed Trump’s behavior.
McCarthy previously said reports about his comments were false — until the authors released the tapes.
Speaking to Joy Reid on MSNBC Friday, Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson said that from what he understands the anti-McCarthy attacks are secretly coming from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY)…
It was Jim Jordan for a while who looked like the one who would take down McCarthy. But today, the buzz in D.C. is all about Elise Stefanik, that she’s the one who is behind some of this and she’s putting the knife into this guy. She’s extremely ambitious. She has a very close relationship to Trump. She’s gone full MAGA in every way. So, I think if Kevin is thinking through his immediate future, telling major donors as he has been, that unless they keep him he can’t block the Trump people.I think Kevin should get a food taster at this point.”
