If there was one thing that took down Kevin McCarthy and the GOP establishment’s hopes for keeping the speakership away from the insurgent Tea Party freedom caucus rebels, it was Kevin McCarthy making an idiotic comment about the Benghazi committee.
That’s why it didn’t take too long for Trey Gowdy to strike back and let Kevin McCarthy know how badly he screwed up.
It’s clear that he was holding back, but the message was obvious – McCarthy screwed up and he did it bad.
It didn’t take long for him to resign his candidacy, and that’s where we’re stuck right now.
What do you think, was Trey Gowdy fair to McCarthy or is the Republican party better off without him? Let us know in the comments!!
