House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is on President Donald Trump's bad side this week, despite the fact that he spoke out against impeachment.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted Monday that Trump has spent the past several days continuing to tell his White House aides that he "won" the election.
But it's Trump's anger with McCarthy that is serving as the source of the outgoing president's distraction of the moment.
Trump previously attacked Mike Pence for refusing to protest the election during the Senate certification process, asking him "you don't want to be a p*ssy do you?" Trump has been using the same word to describe McCarthy, Haberman reported.
McCarthy voted to void the voters in multiple states, even after Trump's supporters staged an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
McCarthy did NOT support impeachment, but that’s hasn’t mattered to the president, according to people who spoke with him.— Maggie Haberman (@Maggie Haberman)1610998554.0
