Though you might not realize it, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has a wicked sense of humor. Watch an interview with her and you’ll see at least one instance where Pelosi will fire off a well-placed line that expertly skewers someone such as Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell.
But perhaps the finest bit of comedic trolling the Speaker has pulled off in recent memory took place on Saturday evening when her office put out a press release in which it was suggested that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is no longer a Republican and instead joined the nutjob conspiracy theorists of QAnon who believe that Democrats are all Satanic baby-eating ghouls who rule the world with the help of the devil.
The headline of the press release reads: “Minority Leader McCarthy (
GOP) (QAnon) Embraces Marjorie Taylor Greene”
Greene, of course, is the Georgia congresswoman who has been spouting disgustingly racist and anti-Semitic bile since she first announced her candidacy.
The press release then states:
Here’s a screengrab of the full press release:
It’s hard to argue with what Pelosi is claiming. McCarthy and others in the GOP have indeed allowed the lunatics to run the asylum, and it’s destroying the Republican Party.
If the GOP cannot find a way to dump disgusting assholes like Marjorie Taylor Greene, then they deserve to go the way of the dinosaurs.
