Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy came unglued Thursday night on the House floor, during a lengthy speech aimed at delaying passage of President Joe Biden's Build Back Better Act.

At one point, a Democrat in the chamber appeared to interrupt McCarthy and ask him to direct his remarks to the chair, rather than to other members of the House.

"I can look anywhere I want, Mr. Speaker," McCarthy said.

A few Democrats appeared to respond to McCarthy, but it's difficult to make out what they said in a C-SPAN video.

"Mr. Speaker, I cannot believe the amount of control one-party rule wants!" McCarthy railed in response, fumbling his words. "They now want to dictate to a member of the floor of where I can look. Are you afraid of the basis of the information in the bill? Sir, I'm gladly to look at you, Mr. Speaker. There's a difference between addressing and looking. I know one-party rule wants to control every element of our lives."
