You knew House Republicans were in trouble when it took them fifteen rounds to elect a Speaker, and then nine months later they ousted him and had to go through half a dozen candidates before settling on someone who doesn’t know how to tie his own shoelaces.
But somehow these House Republicans have managed to make things so ugly for themselves, even fictional screenwriters would have trouble topping it. This tweet from a fictional Jack Smith parody account is proof of that:
Marjorie is running around calling Lauren a whore.
Kevin McCarthy sucker-punched Tim Burchett in the hallway.
Mark Mullen threatened to fight a witness during a Senate hearing.
James Comer became completely unglued at being called out for doing the same thing he wants to…

We’re at the point where parody accounts can’t even top what’s really going on with House Republicans, all they can do is list it all out. This Republican House has been a dumpster fire all year, and now House Republicans are pouring kerosene on their own dumpster fire.
Let’s remember that the Democrats are in prime position to flip the House in 2024, and let’s be sure to put in the work to make that happen. It’s time for the nation to put this kind of House Republican embarrassment to an end.
