On January 3, when the new Congress convened on Capitol Hill, they intended to choose a new Speaker of the House. For several weeks, there were persistent speculations that Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) lacked the required votes to win the election. Nevertheless, he relocated his belongings into the office of the House Speaker before making his way to the floor to submit a proposal. One representative expressed displeasure with his speech.
On January 3, McCarthy made a last-minute push to his colleagues before the vote. He received a “Bull**it” in response from Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO). The legislator reportedly swears throughout his address, warning his fellow Republicans that he won’t engage with them any longer, according to CNN’s Melanie Zanona.
McCarthy ultimately lost three votes that day for speaker. He was defeated in the election three more times the next day. Boebert spoke out against the Republican from California on cable television. On MSNBC, the representative made an appearance and spoke with Stephanie Ruhle. The politician expressed her wish for her party to “identify a consensus candidate” to bring the party together. According to Ruhle, Congress is not carrying out its duties as long as the House remains without a leader.
