Critics are whining that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) should resign after he made a tongue-in-cheek comment about hitting Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with a gavel.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Democrats cannot take jokes.
According to Fox News:
McCarthy was given an oversized gavel emblazoned with the words, “Fire Pelosi,” by members of Tennessee’s Republican congressional delegation during a dinner that also included speakers Gov. Bill Lee, and Sens. Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty.
McCarthy, upon receiving his gift, reportedly quipped, “It will be hard not to hit her with it but I will bang it down.”
And of course, the left lost what was left of their minds.
“America has suffered enough violence around politics,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a proven propaganda circus boy. “@GOPLeader McCarthy is now a would-be assailant of @SpeakerPelosi. He needs to resign.”
“Dear @GOPLeader McCarthy,” said Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA). “Don’t you think America has had enough political violence? 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.”
