What a fiasco it was replacing Nancy Pelosi after the democrats lost control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Kevin McCarthy was thought to be a shoo-in, but the nation would soon find out that wasn’t true after naming a new Speaker required 15 votes and a whole lot of behind-the-scenes negotiations to make it happen. Not to mention the fact that a scuffle almost broke out on the House floor. Now, celebrities are chiming in on an opportunity too good to pass up.
Kevin McCarthy wanted the seat so bad that he was willing to concede to anything and now, the republicans own him during his tenure. There’s so much to the tumultuous story that it seems surreal at this point. Did America just watch that happen?
