    “When I read the transcript, President Zelensky brings up the Javelin as anti-tank… Something that President Obama refused to sell….”

    Confirmation bias confirmed. McCarthy reads the same document as we do, does not see the obvious quid-pro-quo staring back at him, yet does see brown man bad, orange man good.

      The what about isms…is getting really really old..”but Obama…deflection change subject DO NOT answer a direct question…never..

      @Barbara Roberts exactly. Works great on TV with time constraints. Not so much while testifying under oath.

      We all want to see these questions actually answered, and it’s unfortunate we now have to demand an impeachment to get them.

    • @Joshua Wilkerson , trump has always been pathetic, but in the past couple of years, he’s taken it to a point beyond words.

    • @OliverDePlace but his supporters think he’s the best thing since jesus. Lol. Some even go as far as saying ” Jesus sent Trumpty Dumpty to ‘save us’. My god! Help us.

    • @LovinMyKidz , if you believe in it, trump could be considered an antichrist. He’s got millions spellbound into believing in him.

  3. Sounds like Kellyanne Conway prepped Kevin McCarthy for this interview.

    • Dolores Torrecillas | September 30, 2019 at 5:02 PM | Reply

      Good comparison…she is just like him but she lies with lipstick and eyeliner! Only he is more attractive.

    • Frank Griegorian | September 30, 2019 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      What do want from the Meth-head blond gal and is afterall, dumb as a bag of rocks !!!!!!

    • Her surgery went badly. The ‘work’ didn’t work.

    • @LardGreystoke I think her face is the Dorian Grey picture of the Trump administration. There is no way any “work” is going to fix that ugly.

    • By doing what, lobotomizing him? McCarthy wasn’t even in the same universe as the interviewer. Not only did he not read the transcript, but he sounded so shocked about an impeachment hearing.

  4. Does anyone remember when McCarthy admitted they came up with the idea to blame Benghazi on Hillary Clinton? It seems to have been completely forgotten.

  5. The President: “I would like you to do us a favor *though* because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it.”
    Kevin McCarthy, the word “though” is right there in black and white, fool.

    • Jayyy Zeee from the redacted call the White House released omg he thinks everyone is stupid

    • Manuel Schneider | October 1, 2019 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      It doesn’t matter. The followers will only hear that he said the interviewer added a word. End of story, Fake media. They are playing these lines purely to their base, who doesn’t care one bit about right or wrong on these matters

  6. Kevin McCarthy: “I’ve never seen one talking point from the White House.”
    Then the White House must not think he’s very important then because copies of the talking points to defend Trump were also sent to some Democrats. This fool’s arguments are weak af.

      A Dehghani Doesn’t exceed statute of limitations. If it’s a crime it should be looked into. No one should be above the law. Especially not a deepstate rat like Biden. If he’s innocent he should welcome the investigation. Trump let the mueller hoax investigation proceed for over 2 years. Biden and the demorats should do the same.

      This Republians behavior is so insulting the keep defending the on defendsible.But this is unxceptible and because of that one by one of this representatives will be removed from do not have to be a brain surgeon to read and understand this report and the American people read and understand this report.

    • Isaiah Gauthier | October 1, 2019 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      Cuky11103 Love vino beyond insulting for the mafia/Soros run left. And we haven’t even got the findings from the BIG 3 reports and all the cover ups perpetrated by the left. Gonna be nasty, but at the same time fitting. Stay tuned, spin not allowed here🤣😂😂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. “I’ve never seen one of the WH talking points”
    (I’ve seen them all)

  8. He says the interviewer added the word “though.” He is either stupid or he thinks we are. It is in the transcript. The republicans are making themselves look foolish by trying to defend the indefensible. Trump will be gone one day, but they will have to live with the fact that they have sold their souls. For what?

    • Trent Timoy always, imagine how they would feel without power & money, like the rest of us! However they can be voted out

    • Cuckoo Phendula | October 1, 2019 at 8:45 AM | Reply

      They’ll definitely pay a heavy price for their hypocritical truth bending tactics for a long while. Just imagine any clear wrongdoing that any future Demecratic president would do. If a conservative would point fingers at them, people would easily laugh them off knowing how much they defended Trump during our current era

    • Robert Clawson | October 1, 2019 at 8:52 AM | Reply

      I want Trump on that call. That is the reason he was hired. I want him rooting out corruption. Guiliani has intimate knowledge of the illegal political spying that was done by the Obama administration and FISA abuse. The Clinton campaign has not been vetted whether Democrats colluded with a foreign country to commit election fraud. If it takes a special prosecutor, 13 attorneys, 500 interviews and 3 years we should know if Biden was taking bribes through his son or the Clinton Foundation was a front for money laundering. Justice for all.

    • I too wonder what they are going to do when Trump is gone. He will not help them when they also fall.

    “he makes sure he remains ignorant” lmao . That is the republican security blanket, willfull ignorance.

    • Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law !

    • Forktaildevil38J thumbs up, and I’m republican but I can see that there is something wrong there…! We need to do the right thing…Republicans for impeachment!!!

    • Forktaildevil38J | September 30, 2019 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      Wow Jay!! I must admit how refreshing and more importantly reassuring that not ALL Republicans are willing to sell out the country to protect someone breaking the law solely for political reasons. Cheers my friend!

  10. Kevin McCarthy is the one who actually said:
    “I think Putin pays Trump”

  11. That’s painful to see. I can tell in his face, he was trying really hard to believe what he was saying.

  12. I think Kevin McCarthy’s answer speaks to his lack of integrity and honesty with the American people. This is why we have such a corrupt government… is because of people like Kevin McCarthy.

      We’ll said

    • @Robert Clawson You haven’t read any of Twain’s work if you compare him to a Trump “deplorable”. He would have shredded Trump from his lift shoes up to his hair weave.

    • @Robert Clawson Someone call the Waaaaaambulance.
      We got a Trumpflake here.

    • L Benson …McMafia McCarthy knew Trump Gang was working with Russia..just another lie

    • @Robert Clawson Attributing what one individual said, to the way a whole political party, race, or religion believes is ignorant. When Trump said, “I love the poorly educated” am I to believe he was talking about you too?

  14. Add McCarthy to the ever-growing line of GOP guillotine recipients.

  15. Maybe he said “D’oh” not “though” . Had a homer moment when he realised he was pulling a scam on a party line.

  16. Scott “Why didn’t you do your homework?”

    Mc Carthy ” The dog ate it.”

  17. McCarthy thought that the word “though” added to the end of “I’d like you to do us a favor” changed the context of the line and made Trump sound guilty. Otherwise he wouldn’t have brought it up as a point of contention in trying to defend Trump. Once he realized that it was part of the actual transcript he stopped talking about it immediately.

    • @Ian Werden a British Lieutenant named Ken Giles. “The 75mm main gun is firing,” Lt Giles recalls, breathlessly. “The 37mm secondary gun is firing, but it’s traversed round the wrong way. The Browning [machine gun] is jammed. I am saying, ‘Driver advance’ on the A set, but the driver – who can’t hear me – is reversing.

      “And as I look over the top of the turret, and see 12 enemy tanks, just 50 yards away, someone hands me a cheese sandwich.”

      or this one is a good one….

      Late on in the Second World War, as the Allies were fighting their way across northern Europe, a battalion of Gurkhas was asked to provide some volunteers for a mission behind enemy lines.

      The unit was paraded, and a staff officer explained the mission: “It is absolutely vital that you need to go in and secure the position. We only expect light resistance from the Germans. You’ll be dropped from an aircraft at 1200 feet.”

      The Gurkhas’ own commanding officer then asked for volunteers to take one step forward. About half of the men stepped forward.

      The British officer was surprised. “I thought the Gurkhas were supposed to be the bravest men of all,” he said to the Gurkha c/o. “And it’s not as though we expect this to be a particularly dangerous job.”

      “True,” said the Gurkha officer. “But half of them have just volunteered to jump from 1200 feet. Perhaps you should tell them they’ll have parachutes.”

    • VladI how very true, he’s taken the 7 pieces of silver…………

    • this explains the cop attitude toward Cannabis.

    • Facts

  19. When you’re a serious fascist you think that alt-truth is a “patriotic lie”.

    • Well said Maria

    • I don’t think fascists like Grumpy, McCarthy and his Repugnant cronies understand the difference. They ONLY SEE power and dollar signs.

    • Robert Clawson | October 1, 2019 at 9:03 AM | Reply

      You are a serious fascist when you do not prosecute Democrats for using the government to illegally spy on Americans, political opponents and selling out America to the highest bidder such as Soros, Steyer, Gulen and bin Salman. Allowing illegals, AntiFA communists and big tech to harm journalists, censor political opponents and attack the US government is criminal yet Democrats defend this. Democrats view of law enforcement for the own purposes causes them to be completely unelectable and absurd. Drain them.

    • @Robert Clawson your entire point is really irrelevant in the context of the situation. Just more misdirection from the matter at hand. Everything you said is an opinion. An opinion that’s shared by alot of people. The fact is trump is the subject of an impeachment inquiry as a direct result of his actions. Pointing the finger at someone else isnt going to help him in his defense. If he did nothing questionable, he has absolutely nothing to worry about. Obviously his kronies are worried, which is evident by their irrational responses to direct questions. Biden isnt up for impeachment, only trump.

  20. Wife: I’m ready to go shopping. Husband: I need you to do me a FAVOR THOUGH…

    In other words, it is implied that the wife iis not getting what she wants until he gets what he wants🤷🏽‍♀️
