Anchor Dana Bash brought up the New York Times report of audio from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in the wake of the January 6 Capitol chaos, in which he stated that former President Trump says he bears some responsibility and that he, McCarthy, recommended Trump resign.
Bash said, “You know, he’s not saying that now. What’s your reaction?”
Warren replied, “Kevin McCarthy is a liar and a traitor. This is outrageous. And that is really the illness that pervades the Republican leadership right now. They say one thing to the American public and something else in private. They understand that it is wrong what happened, an attempt to overthrow our government. And that the Republicans instead want to continue to try to figure out how to make the 2020 election different instead of spending their energy on how it is that we go forward in order to build an economy, in order to make this country work better for the people who sent us to Washington. Shame on Kevin McCarthy.”
Shame on Elizabeth Warren. There was no attempt to overthrow our government. That is a grotesque lie from her and her party. The real liars and traitors are the Democrats who stole the 2020 election through widespread voter fraud and a fashioned a subsequent false coverup about a Republican attempt to overthrow the government.
