On Thursday, writing for The Bulwark, conservative analyst Charlie Sykes explored how former President Donald Trump's loyalists are turning on each other, with much of it revolving around the fallout from the tapes of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) slamming the former president and those who supported the efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

"Tucker Carlson is attacking GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy — and Elise Stefanik — for having a short-lived spasm of decency after January 6: 'Those are the tape-recorded words of Congressman Kevin McCarthy, a man who in private, turns out, sounds like an MSNBC contributor,'" wrote Sykes. "At the same time, Matt Gaetz is lashing out at McCarthy and his #2, Steve Scalise."

Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) engaged in insider trading by promoting an anti-Biden themed cryptocurrency — and the far-right Club for Growth is now running ads attacking Trump for backing J.D. Vance in the Ohio Senate race.
