HOUSE Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was caught on a hot mic slamming fellow GOP representative Liz Cheney just one day after she accused former President Donald Trump of “poisoning” democracy.
Rep. McCarthy, a California Republican, told Steve Doocy off-air before a live "Fox and Friends" interview, "I think she's got real problems.”
“I've had it with … I've had it with her,” the politician continued, according to Axios. “You know, I've lost confidence. … Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place."
The comments came just a day after Rep. Cheney of Wyoming tweeted “The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” in response to recent claims the former President has made about "The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020,” as he has dubbed the recent United States race.
Rep. Cheney’s May 3 tweet continued, “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”
Her statement seemed to be responding to one Trump’s office made calling the 2020 election “THE BIG LIE!"
