House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is facing withering criticism for telling an interviewer that every American shoulders part of the blame for the Jan. 6th storming of the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists urged on Donald Trump.

According to a report from HuffPost, McCarthy made his comments in an interview to be shown this Sunday on "Full Court Press With Greta Van Susteren," saying Trump bears some responsibility, before adding, "I also think everybody across this country has some responsibility."

That set off a flurry of criticism from critics accusing the Republican leader of trying to point the finger elsewhere for the MAGA-inspired coup attempt that led to five deaths.
