(born Jan 26, 1965) is the spineless and corrupt RINO Republican Representative for California’s 23rd congressional district. From 2014 to 2019 he was the House Majority Leader and House Minority Leader from 2019-present. From 2007 to 2013, McCarthy represented the 22nd district of California. Prior to that time, he served in the California State Assembly.1 He is reportedly married, but moved into longtime friend and Republican pollster Frank Luntz’s lavish Washington penthouse apartment in January 2021 allegedly to care for Luntz after the pollster suffered a stroke while doing a focus group for the LA Times a full year earlier, in January of 2020. He, along with GOP lobbyist Jeff Miller and Brian O. Walsh, a Republican strategist who works for multiple McCarthy-backed groups, helped sabotage Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s re-election campaign as part of an effort to purge the loudest pro-Trump lawmakers and used laundered funds from the now bankrupt CIA front crypto exchange FTX to sway GOP primaries away from Trump supporters.
He didn’t like President Trump and seemed to push for Tim Scott to be the next President. He ignored the election fraud of the 2020 election. He sided with Biden over Marjorie Taylor Green in her bid to impeach junta leader Joe Biden in the stolen election. After polls showed 75% of Republicans believe the election was stolen, McCarthy said in May 2021 amidst ongoing forensic audits:
He had received a letter from Pennsylvania House and Senate members showing proof of fraud and over 200,000 bogus votes in the state and probably much more evidence by the time of this quote, but ignored it all.
Pollster Richard Baris reported:
Four in 10 Republicans now have a “very unfavorable” view of McCarthy. It’s coming from independents, it’s coming from Republicans. You cannot message as a party if the leaders are unliked this badly. Americans cannot stand them.
McCarthy condemned President Trump and the entire GOP pro-Trump base on January 6, when he gave a press conference and condemned the actions of peaceful protesters who were standing up against election fraud and the theft of our elections by calling it a violent insurrection.
An audio of GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy discussing the removal of Trump via the 25th Amendment days after the January 6 Capitol protest was leaked to two New York Times reporters. McCarthy asked his aide John Leganski.: “[The 25th Amendment] takes too long. It could go back to the House, right?”
McCarthy runs the National Republican Congressional Committee, and after stabbing Trump and his supporters in the back on multiple occasions, they sent out GOP fundraising texts (to mostly elderly) that stated:
“You’re a traitor. You abandoned Trump. We were told you were a tried and true, lifelong patriot. But when Trump said he’d run for President if we took back the House from Nancy Pelosi, you did nothing. Was Trump wrong about you? This is your final chance to prove your loyalty or be branded a deserter. We’re giving you one final chance to stand with Trump. You only have 17 minutes.”

…Your Trump Patriot status is incomplete. Check this box to confirm your Trump Patriot Status and prove you’re a true patriot. Uncheck this box, and we’ll tell Trump you abandoned him.
What a hypocrite!
It took GOP Leader McCarthy over SIX MONTHS after the 2020 election to remove loudmouth Never-Trumper Liz Cheney from her role in the House Republican Caucus. After the strongly conservative, anti-establishment representative Steve King made a blunt comment that was exaggerated by the media to promote the narrative of him being a “racist”, McCarthy and other House Republicans quickly stripped King of his committee assignments. In mid-May 2020, McCarthy stubbornly continued to vow that King “cannot be exonerated” over the mere comment that was made.
McCarthy deputized John Katco (R-NY) to make a deal on the Jan. 6 Commission with the Pelosi gang, knowing that Katco had voted to impeach President Trump and blamed Capitol Police Officer Sicknick’s death on Trump supporters, echoing the democrat lie that even the officers family said wasn’t true.
After Rep. Louie Gohmert tested positive for the coronavirus, McCarthy ‘accidentally’ referred to the former as “Congressman COVID”.
McCarthy (R-CA) had a stern talk with freshman Madison Cawthorn in March 2022 over Cawthorn’s cocaine and orgy allegations. McCarthy threatened Cawthorn and said there will be consequences if he doesn’t turn his life around.
Laura Loomer has called out McCarthy on his lack of support for Trump and real America First candidates, his support of pro-impeachment candidates, his lack of effort to fight big tech censorship of conservatives, election integrity, and more, but maybe this is why he makes sure she has never received a penny from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC_ run by McCarthy.
In April 2022, The New York Times investigative reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns released passages from their book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.” In the book the two claimed that GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy told Liz Cheney on a January 10, 2021 call that he would counsel Trump to resign before the end of his term. McCarthy’s spokesman Mark Bednar refuted them saying, “McCarthy never said he’d call Trump to say he should resign.” McCarthy himself called the claims about his conversations “totally false” when The New York Times reported on them earlier in the day.
Then he got caught. Rachel Maddow leaked the private phone call on her show on Thursday night of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy with Trump-hating lunatic Liz Cheney on January 10, 2021. During the call, McCarthy told Liz Cheney that he would counsel President Trump Trump to resign. This is exactly what the book reported. Liz Cheney released the call to the authors. And now Kevin McCarthy was caught in a lie.
From the call:
Kevin McCarthy: “I think [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you (President Trump) should resign… What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it.”
McCarthy also indicated that he believed Twitter and Facebook should delete the accounts of lawmakers who were supporting Trump’s claim of a rigged election. “We can’t put up with that,” he said. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?” FOX News refused to report on this story on Kevin McCarthy. They protected him following this embarrassing and explosive development. But then, FOX News reporter Bill Melugin confronted Kevin McCarthy on his lies during his trip to the open US border in Texas.
Then Tucker Carlson totally threw down on McCarthy for tossing his Caucus members under the bus and pushing to silence them online.
Tucker Carlson: “He told his close friend Liz Cheney that he hoped the social media companies would censor more conservative Republicans in Congress. Donald Trump the sitting president was already silenced by those companies. but McCarthy wanted the tech oligarchs to do more. To force disobedient lawmakers off the internet. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away too?” Those are the tape-recorded words of congressman Kevin McCarthy, a man who in private, it turns out, sounds like an MSNBC contributor… Unless conservatives get their act together right away, Kevin McCarthy, or one of his highly liberal allies, like Elise Stefanik, is very likely to be speaker of the House in January. That would mean we will have a Republican Congress led by a puppet of the Democratic Party.”
