STANDING WITH TRUMP: House GOP Leader Defends the President, Says Phony Outrage ‘All About Politics’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.16.19

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy defended President Trump from ‘Radical Democrat’ lawmakers Tuesday; saying their phony outrage regarding his tweets is “all about politics.”

“House Republican leaders stood by President Trump on Tuesday in response to a Democratic resolution condemning his controversial tweets about four freshman lawmakers, alleging their outrage is ‘all about politics’ and suggesting it’s being used to revive an impeachment push,” reports Fox News.

“They talked more about impeachment than anything else,” said McCarthy; referencing Monday’s press conference from the ‘Squad’ -consisting of Representatives Omar, Pressley, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez.

Democratic legislators are planning a vote on the House Floor Tuesday to publicly condemn Trump’s comments.

Trump continued his all-out war with “Radical Democrats” Tuesday morning; saying there’s “not a racist bone” in his body and that progressive lawmakers “hate our country.”

“Our Country is Free, Beautiful and Very Successful. If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show ‘weakness’ and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!” he added.

The comments are a continuation from a series of tweets earlier Tuesday morning.

“The Democrat Congresswomen have been spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate, & yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democrat Party. Horrible anti-Israel, anti-USA, pro-terrorist & public shouting of the F…word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!” tweeted Trump.
