Dems explode in calls for McCarthy’s resignation over gavel comments

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has faced calls by Democrats for his resignation after a joke on Saturday about hitting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with a gavel.

The remark occurred during a Tennessee Republican dinner on Saturday, according to the Washington Examiner. McCarthy was presented with a gavel with the words “Fire Pelosi” written on it.

“It will be hard not to hit her with it, but I will bang it down,” McCarthy reportedly said,according to reporter Yue Stella Yu.

Ted Lieu (D-CA) said, “You should never be encouraging or threatening or joking about causing violence to anyone, including the Speaker of the House. You need to apologize for your statement, or resign.”

The gift is likely reference to Republican hopes for McCarthy to become House Speaker following the midterms. The GOP continues to push to retake power in the House in 2020 and put Pelosi out of her role as House Speaker.

The joke also serves as the latest in the ongoing back-and-forth attacks between McCarthy and Pelosi. She most recently called him a “moron” over his remarks regarding her new House mask mandate.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

Ted Lieu, you are just like all the other retards out there trying to make something out of nothing. Didn’t notice you chastising Pelosi for calling McCarthy a moron. You jackas-es only get excited when someone tell the truth about you. Grow up.

Pelosi should apologize to McCarthy for calling him a moron. But that’s ok. NOT! McCarthy has no reason to apologize since the gavel said “Fire Pelosi” which is not suggesting harm only that she should lose her position.
