  1. McCarthy: “QNon.. Qnonon.. I don’t even know”

    Yeah McCarthy you know, we all know you know…

    1. Frugal Mom and Wife I DON’T BELIEVE McCARTHY HE’S A LIAR! I DON’T BELIEVE HE’S
      THAT STUPID! WHEN YOU PLAY WITH WEALTHY PEOPLE LIKE trump YOU CAN BE SURE
      HE WILL FIND SOME OF YOUR SECRETS & HOLD THEM OVER YOUR HEADS. MUST BE
      SOME PRETTY BAD STUFF. DOESN’T MAKE SENSE ONLY 11 REPUBLICANS VOTED TO
      GET RID OF GREENE

    2. @Janet Chaplin : That’s why we should be writing to our representatives to DEMAND that they follow up, and STOMP McCarthy’s Helsinki style LIE! He can be Censured by the House, for failing to do his JOB! Even the general public has done a better background check on her than he has! He cannot POSSIBLY of not known about her Parkland and other denials! So, putting her on Education was TROLLING the victims’ families and all decent Americans! He should be PUNISHED!

    1. Just like old Graham,,Cruz and the rest that bow down to A Puten wanna be.Right now I bet the ‘M Puten wanna be has a streight line to Russia.Just think that over.

    2. Just like old Graham,,Cruz and the rest that bow down to A Puten wanna be.Right now I bet the ‘M Puten wanna be has a streight line to Russia.Just think that over.ok?

  2. Greene has Trump’s ear therefore the GOP are afraid to hold her accountable. She raised money off this as well and tweeted throughout the process. She never apologized she blamed other people instead.

  3. McCarthyism: “She said she doesn’t believe Jewish space lasers started forest fires, but don’t forget, OBAMA WORE A TAN SUIT!!!!”

    1. Kevin McCarthy should be Censured by the House? At the very least! He did not, “believe her,” any more than trump, “believed,” Putin at Helsinki! He failed to do his job! He put her on Education, of ALL THINGS! Was he Trolling thousands of grieving American families? Not to mention right minded Americans!?

    2. McCarthy (Q) needs to go next , Bye republican Trump supporters are all domestic terrorist, traitors to America, never forget officers murdered on jan6 capital attack

    1. Your “barrel of stink” comment has me wondering just what covert political financial shenanigans Robert and Rebekah Mercer are up to right about now.

    1. @Big Ron I wish that we could say that about all of our elected officials. Greene is dangerous. People like her should not be in power.

    2. @Willy Bones I don’t pretend to tell a district who they should send to Congress. Q-anon Qaren’s district may be having second thoughts. I’ve spent time in that area and found the people to be courteous and affable. Time will tell.

    3. Ms. Greene is white privilege incarnate, with a crazy and ignorant assimilated patriarchal behavioral twist.

  4. She’s right. Dude is making a huge decision and he didn’t check the facts. That’s crazy! Almost forgot we need to hold politicians accountable. They make decisions that impact millions of lives why are we treating them like primary kids?

  5. McCarthy is attempting to do a Trump – only he’s out of luck. That time is gone. What a fuel. He has been seduced by the possibility of power and ambition, by his ego. Fool!

    1. Trump may be gone but Trumpism isn’t. Qanon extremists are all around you, Lilly. The government is going to take drastic actions to keep you safe. There may be a downside but never mind that. You want to be safe don’t you?

  6. As long as this q person is in the Republican Party, with any luck, they’ll never be taken seriously and Americans will never vote for lunatics. Only the loonies, probably.

  7. Thank god she has gone. This gives the children in America and the victims of the shootings in school justice for today.

    1. McCarthy (Q) needs to go next , Bye republican Trump supporters are all domestic terrorist, traitors to America, never forget officers murdered on jan6 capital attack

  8. “which is humiliating” : that’s a Democrat point of view, ReTRUMPliCLANs cannot be humiliated, they lack a conscience and morality

    1. I agree, BUT that’s a dehumanizing statement, which in itself lacks conscience and morality, or at least self-awareness… please don’t take this with animosity, I don’t debate other leftists, if you think I am wrong, ok, I am wrong, sorry.

  9. In McCarthy’s defense, he was after all, Jedi-Mind-Tricked. The Force didn’t need to be very strong in Marjie Taylor Greene, being that McCarthy isn’t really that bright.

  10. Does anyone really believe McCarthy was duped by this woman? It is more likely he thought he would benefit from her followers, just as he thought/thinks he will benefit from Trump’s followers.

    1. In the same way that, if he actually doesn’t know what QAnon is, he is not qualified to hold his position.

    2. Like, really? Your own House was attacked, and you didn’t look into the prevailing beliefs of those who attacked it? That’s an abdication of responsibility on a dramatic scale.

    1. Watch his interview with 60 Minutes. He got angry with Scott Pelli for changing Trump’s words to make it seem criminal. Upon learning that they were indeed Trump’s words verbatim McCarthy then decided there was nothing wrong with them.

    1. Like Mike Pence, McCarthy is a slithery, ambitious political animal. Also like Pence, a very situationally malleable and craven one… that is to say, an unauthentic shape-shifter.
