Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy refused to endorse Donald Trump for President during an appearance Sunday on Meet the Press. Last week, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene went on an unhinged rant against NationalFile reporter Charles Downs after Downs asked MTG, ” Do you regret supporting Kevin McCarthy?” MTG’s refusal to answer Downs’ question is looking worse and worse by the day.
When asked about why he has not endorsed Trump yet, McCarthy told Meet the Press, ” Well, the campaign is still going, I got southern border wide open, I got war in the Middle East, I got things I need to focus on right now.”
McCarthy was then asked, ” Are you a MAGA Republican?”
McCarthy responded with, ” You know what? I am a Conservative Republican from the beginning to end and I am proud of who I am.”
Wow, Kevin McCarthy refused to endorse Trump on Meet the Press. It’s sickening that MTG went off on me over my “Do you regret supporting McCarthy?” question. As y’all can see, it was a totally valid question.

Many found it creepy McCarthy answered the question like he was still Speaker. McCarthy, however, was not too busy to endorse Tom Emmer for Speaker. NationalFile has reported on Emmer’s ties to Liz Cheney and Ron DeSantis. Emmer would certainly use the power of the Speakership to attempt to stop Trump from winning the GOP nomination.
Last week, NationalFile reporter Charles Downs asked MTG twice, ” Do you regret supporting Kevin McCarthy.” MTG ignored the first question. However, MTG responded the 2nd time, telling NationalFile reporter Charles Downs, “Do you have a real job? Or even a real life? I don’t think so.”
Outside the Speaker vote I again asked MTG if she regretted supporting Kevin McCarthy for Speaker. Instead of answering my question, MTG decided to attack me saying “I don’t have a real life.”
RINOs like MTG are just the worst. pic.twitter.com/zwfg1089pZ

MTG’s decision to attack Downs instead of answering his question on McCarthy is looking worse by the day as McCarthy continues to attack Trump and his supporters via anti MAGA endorsements and statements.
