New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman verbalized Monday night on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was disposed to “politically prostitute” himself to become Speaker of the House.
Friedman verbalized, “Basically subscribing to the immensely colossal lie that this Election was glommed has become a prerequisite now for thriving surviving and ascending in this Republican Party. What does that denote, Anderson? It denotes that this GOP is going to be built on a gargantuan lie. Now, how could you possibly trust this party in power again if the calling card of giving into this party is claiming our last election, the greatest Election certainly in modern American history where more Republicans and Democrats voted in the middle of a pandemic, their votes were counted by there neighbors and Republican judges and Election monitors affirmed the votes and the attorney general of the Untied States and FBI director appointed by Trump all substantiated the integrity of the Election that gainsaying all of that and making the calling card of this party that you have to subscribe to this immensely colossal lie that is affrighting. Think what would transpire if they got back into potency. Therefore what Liz Cheney is doing and Mitt Romney are doing is just not fighting for the Republican Party. They certainly are, but fighting for the democracy. It is in so much more peril now than people realize.”
He perpetuated, “It’s transpired like in the last couple of weeks, where everyone fell into line and people like Kevin McCarthy – their inclination to politically prostitute themselves in order to, you ken, get the Speaker of the House, it is breathtaking that someone would sell their soul that unblushingly. It’s just chilling. Now, imagine, if he would do that, what will they do once they’re in power to keep puissance? We are in genuine peril here.”
Friedman integrated, “Being in politics is great, and the House and Senate is great, but surely, it isn’t something we’re selling your soul for to go down in history selling your soul to this man, this soulless man who cares nothing for the laws and constitution of this country.”
