The Speaker: "McCarthy (Q-CA) Fails to Lead, Hands Keys to Party to Greene"

From Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

McCarthy (Q-CA) Fails to Lead, Hands Keys to Party to Greene

February 3, 2021
Press Release

Sen. John Thune: House Republicans Must Decide if They Want to Be the Party of QAnon

After several conversations and literally running away from reporters, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA) made clear that he is refusing to take action against conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. As a result, the House will continue with a vote to strip Greene of her seat on the esteemed House Committee on Education & Labor and House Committee on Budget. McCarthy’s failure to lead his party effectively hands the keys over to Greene – an anti-Semite, QAnon adherent and 9/11 Truther.

McCarthy’s cowardly refusal to deal with Greene breaks with calls from Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the Republican Jewish Coalition and several prominent members of the party to take action against Greene.

As No 2. Senate Republican John Thune warned Tuesday, McCarthy has chosen to make House Republicans “the party of conspiracy theories and QAnon” and Rep. Greene is in the driver’s seat.

4. I hadn't thought about that. Then again, she might be jealous.

This could launch a War of the Qrazies!

I couldn't figure out how to add the link without the tweet being auto-displayed in the above.

9. It was linked in the press release, but ...

When I tried to put it in, the tweet showed up near the end of the release. That was not a good look.

6. Clearly Trump's fascist mantle has been passed to Taylor Green

She’s now the most divisive, lying, hate-filled, racist, white nationalist, bible thumping, nazi, psychopathic scum in government, happily stirring up the ignorant rabble and fomenting violence.
