I know, I know. Talking about Kevin McCarthy is not always fun. Any story about Kevin McCarthy is bound to be filled with cowardice, stupidity, and hubris, right? Well, yes. But the person who is talking about Kevin is an American hero.

Michael Fanone is an American hero. He was at the Capitol on January 6 in his position as an officer and fought for this country. Kevin McCarthy is an anti-American weasel. And in an interview with Rolling Stone, Fanone went off on McCarthy.

“I think at night when the lights are turned off, Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan have some pretty choice words to say about the fact that they have to hang on Kevin McCarthy’s wall,” he explained.

“They did some f### above-average things. And they’ve got to adorn the wall of this f##king weasel b###h named Kevin McCarthy, with his fake f##king spray-on tan.”

There’s more (and more f###), but you get the picture. It is no wonder Fanone is angry. Reportedly Kevin did not want to meet with members of the Capitol police after the insurrection.

However, he was all too happy to meet with Donald Trump down at Mar-a-lago. Fanone is currently writing a book which I plan to buy when it’s out. I imagine there will be plenty more where that came from. In other news about McCarthy, many are whispering that it is unlikely he will be speaker even if the GOP wins the House, which they will not.

Republicans have begun to turn on McCarthy. Well, what did he expect? A man without a sprinkle of loyalty to anyone will get the same treatment back. You get what you put out to the universe. The only thing Kevin has put out is cowardice.
