McCarthy Gushes About Greene In Private: ‘I Will Always Take Care Of Her’

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has a new BFF in Congress: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and in private he talks about her as if the two were lovers, according to the New York Times.

When she first arrived in Congress two years ago, Greene was viewed by most in the Republican Party as a political liability who was adept at only one thing: Making a complete fool of herself and her Republican colleagues who had to try and defend her absurd conspiracy theories, i.e. Jewish space lasers.

Now, however Greene is connected at the hip to McCarthy, whom she helped get elected to the Speaker’s post. And McCarthy cannot stop declaring his undying loyalty to the Georgian, telling a friend:

“I will never leave that woman. I will always take care of her.”

McCarthy told the Times that he trusts Greene and that she reminds him of friends he grew up with in California:

“If you’re going to be in a fight, you want Marjorie in your foxhole. When she picks a fight, she’s going to fight until the fight’s over. She reminds me of my friends from high school, that we’re going to stick together all the way through.”

What has Greene gotten in return for helping McCarthy? Appointment to the powerful House Homeland Security and Oversight Committees, which has led her to say of McCarthy:

“If he sticks to it, it will easily vindicate me and prove I moved the conference to the right during my first two years when I served in the minority with no committees.”

It will also prove that the extreme right-wingers and bomb throwers have become the most powerful force in today’s Republican Party. That alone is reason enough to fear for the future of this country.
