Kinzinger Calls McCarthy a “Piece of Sh*t”

1784: U.S. Congress of the Confederation ratifies the Treaty of Paris, signed September 3, 1783, ending the Revolutionary War, and forwards it to Great Britain.

Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) unloaded in a new interview this week, calling House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) a “piece of shit” who says “whatever he needs to say to stay in power.

During a recent episode of “The Bulwark” podcast, Kinzinger and host Charlie Sykes discussed McCarthy’s tumultuous attempts to nab the speakership last week, previewing what to expect with the new Congress.

Kinzinger opted not to seek re-election, bringing his time in Congress to a close after his sixth term, which ended last week.

The former congressman said the GOP’s more radical members have been positioned for political gains, specifying Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who supported McCarthy’s speakership bid.

“They end up getting better assignments,” Kinzinger said. “If you actually are an a**hole … you actually will come out being the person that they pursue more.”

Kinzinger expressed doubt that McCarthy, who he called a “piece of sh*t,” would remove controversial Rep. George Santos (R-NY) from his committee assignments due to the GOP’s slim majority in the House.

Kinzinger said it was a “fact” that McCarthy would “say whatever he needs to say to stay in power.”

The comments come as Santos faces continued scrutiny for fabricating large parts of his personal, professional, and educational background.

On Thursday, McCarthy defended Santos against those calling for his resignation or removal, but acknowledged that he has “a long way to go to earn trust.”

“Tons of people can exaggerate, you know, parts of their resume. It’s different than making up a whole new life,” Kinzinger said.

    So far I like everything this new Republican majority has done. Talk about what they are doing, don’t just call people names.

      Kinzinger, not a man, a puny crybaby!

      1. Roy says:

        He is a little baby

    2. You are right, but he won’t believe in that because he was a RINO from the beginning. What they are doing so far is great and I think it will continue. The rules that were changed will see to that. God Bless America!

  2. Old feeble Joe says:

    Kinzinger is a loser

  3. Bret says:

    So what a liberal socialist interviews a liberal socialist rino. This guy is a liar yo the nth degree.

  4. David S. says:

    Kinzinger has cozied up to Democrats trying hard to seem relevant in the Jan. 6 mess. If there was a serious approach, rather than partisan posturing, and a genuine seeking of facts on all sides, he may have had validity. Now, he is what he accused McCarthy of being – a POS.

  5. Bill says:

    Poor bitter child. Ignore him.

  6. Thomas Gougeon says:

    Hey DemocRats,
    What about Sen. Blumarhal from Vermont claiming he was a Vietnam Veteran and he wasn’t, nothing was done to him for fabricating that lie….

    1. Edward says:

      Blumenthal is from Ct. , not Vermont.

  7. David says:

    Pure evils Satanic burn the hell like ash !

  8. Rob says:

    All politicians are hypocrites, and liars, and it’s a vicious circle of blackmail, not partisan solutions! The Democrats need to remember how they protected Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and the fact that Joe Biden is a false storefront for Obama’s 3rd. term! The leaders of this Country have politicized the FBI, CIA, ATF, USPS, IRS, NEA, CDC, FEMA, EPA, NRC, FDA, FDIC, and they are being blackmailed by Ukraine, China, and Iran, because of their dirty deeds! You can’t put an America hating, communist in the Oval Office! Obama, Ayer’s, Soros, Holder, Rice, Jarrett, Kerry, Clinton, are destroying America, and all we do is complain, when we should be dragging them to the curb! This is the United States of America, we are the People, we are supposed to be in control, but politicians ignore WE The People! Its our Country to lose!

    Kinsinger and those like him are exactly why we need to convene a Congress of States and reverse the trends and direction that politicians have engineered for the country over the past few decades.

  11. Rob says:

    Ukraine collusion, by the Clintons, and the Biden’s, caused Putin, to Attack Ukraine! There are no bigger criminals than the DNC, they are the largest criminal organization in America when you consider all of the federal agencies Obama has politicized, not to mention the MSM, it’s eerily similar to Hitlers Germany!
    The USA, by the people, for the people? Not anymore, because We The People are cowards, we sit by and watch the Obama Administration, destroy America!
    We can’t be an ally of Israel and be in bed with Iran! The DNC has done whatever they want under the false storefront, Biden! The Border is wide open, why? Because our government runs the child sex trafficking business! Soros is a drug dealer, and he helps run this Country into the ground, as WE THE PEOPLE sit and watch!

  12. Don says:
