At GOP Fundraising Dinner, Kevin McCarthy Jokes About Hitting Nancy Pelosi With Gavel If He Becomes Speaker

By Sarah RumpfJul 31st, 2021, 9:50 pm

At a GOP fundraising dinner in Nashville, Tn., House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) joked about hitting Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with a gavel if Republicans retake the majority in the 2022 midterm elections, allowing him to take over as Speaker.

McCarthy has made no secret of his desire to become Speaker, as he has treaded water since Republicans lost the House in the 2018 elections and former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) retired.

At the Tennessee dinner, members of the state’s Republican congressional delegation gave McCarthy an oversized gavel that said “Fire Pelosi” on it, as photographed by Tennessean reporter Yue Stella Yu.

7. The Reeps no longer have inhibitions or veneers..

to hide their real selves and purposes, like they used to.

They are brazen because they think they own the
country and maybe the vote.

So far they do.
