According to MSNBC political analyst John Heilemann, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) -- along with the Republican House caucus -- have handed the Democrats the gift that keeps on giving by not severely disciplining or ousting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

As Heilemann told "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, Democratic consultants will be using video clips of the controversial congresswoman spouting our outrageous conspiracy theories in campaigns all across the country.

"It's mind-blowing, guys, but that is where we are," Heilemann explained. "You know, Kevin McCarthy says nothing to see here, let's move on. The political analysis today is more than it was yesterday when we talked about it."

"Republicans have handed Democrats the ability now to call Republicans the party of QAnon," he continued. "190 plus of them voted to support her yesterday -- that's the takeaway. They're with her, they're with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Democrats will make that point over and over and over again and hang this vote around the necks of those Republican members of the House for the course of the next two years. It is an enormous political gift to [House Majority Leader] Nancy Pelosi, and Kevin McCarthy's leadership here is utterly just exposed for its utter bankruptcy these last three days."
