If you still don’t think the GQP has become the party of liars and traitors because I say they are, take ‘em at their word, or words …
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was asked if he was concerned about elevating Elise Stefanik to GQP leadership after she also pushed The Big Lie, and he said:
“I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.”
Except that the woman you just promoted just did, asshat.
Video of the Capitol insurrection by those homegrown domestic terrorists show that some who battled with police wore trademark MAGAt and waved huge pro-Thing #45 flags, but South Carolina, where it’s not the heat, it’s the stupidity, Representative Ralph Norman disputed the claims that the insurrectionist traitors supported the last guy:
“I don’t know who did the poll to say they were Trump supporters.”
The poll? Howsabout the fact that they marched from the White House after his rally wearing his hats and waving his flags? And if you don’t think that means they supported him, give us another explanation that makes senses.
GQP Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona is defending Ashli Babbitt, a woman who was shot and killed by the Capitol Police as she tried to break into the House chamber during the 6 insurrection, saying she was murdered:
“As the death certificate says, it was a homicide. Who executed Ashli Babbitt? My constituents demand answers. But the truth is being censored and covered up. As a result, the DOJ is harassing peaceful patriots across the country. Without accurate answers, conspiracies continue to form.”
Hey Paul? Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist who broke into the Capitol and terrorized you and your colleagues while marching with people who wished to murder the Vice President, people who defecated on wall, people who stole government property.
You constituents should demand to know why you support terrorism.
GQP Representative Andrew Clyde of Georgia said that calling the called the January 6 riots an “insurrection” was a "bald-faced lie" and likened the rioters to tourists:
"This hearing is called the Capitol insurrection. Let's be honest with the American people: it was not an insurrection, and we cannot call it that and be truthful."
Even better is that Clyde quoted from two dictionaries including the Cambridge English Dictionary, which defines an insurrection as "an organized attempt by a group of people to defeat their government and take control of their country usually by violence." Is he seriously that ignorant? Yes, because he also said this:
"As one of the members who stayed in the Capitol and on the House floor and who, with other Republican colleagues, helped barricade the door until almost 3 pm that day from the mob who tried to enter, I can tell you, the House floor was never breached and it was not an insurrection."
But the mob was just tourists, Andy, so why hide behind a barricaded door?
