Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy must have realized he needs to shore up his support among the members of the GOP base before it’s too late, as he recently grew something of a spine and began the impeachment inquiry and is treating leftie journalists with something approaching disdain.
Such could be seen in a recent interaction Speaker McCarthy had with a journalist for the Associated Press in which he exposes the so-called “journalist” as not actually having done a bit of journalism and instead just trying to make the GOP look bad.
A video of the incident quickly went viral on X (formerly Twitter), with Jason Howerton captioning it, “Wow. McCarthy actually forces AP reporter to do journalism lmao.” Watch that video here:

As you can hear in the clip, Speaker McCarthy was wrecking the journalist for not having actually asked the hard questions of the Biden Administration, namely what Biden was doing in a slew of meetings with Hunter’s business partners. He asked. “But what impeachment inquiry is to do is to get answers to questions. Are you concerned about all this stuff that was just recently learned? Do you have any concern? Did you ask the White House any questions?”
Continuing, he kept pressing the journalist on if she had asked a single question about Biden and his apparent lies, asking, “Okay. Do you agree that, do you believe the President lied to the American public when he said he’d never talked to his son about business dealings? Yesterday?” She said, predictably, “I can’t answer that.”
Speaker McCarthy used that response as a lead in for his next series of questions, saying, “You can’t answer that. Do you believe when they said the President went on conference calls? Do you believe that happeneyou believe the President went to Cafe Milano and had dinner with the with the clients of Hunter Biden, who believes he got those clients because he was selling the brand?”
He went on with asking the questions she refused to answer about Biden and his relationship with his son’s business partners in influence selling activities, asking, “Do you believe Hunter Biden, when you saw the video of him driving a Porsche that he got $143,000 to buy that Porsche the next day? Do you believe that $3 million from the Russian oligarch that was transferred to the shell companies that Biden’s control after the dinner from Cafe Milano took place for a testimony?”
Then, wrapping up, he used her non-answers to those questions to show that answering them is the point of the impeachment inquiry the left is up in arms about, saying, “Okay, then I go back do you think the President lied that he went is that an impeachable is lying and impeachable? What you want to know I’m not saying impeachment. All I’m saying is, I would like to know answer these questions the American public wants to know, and that’s what impeachment inquiry is for.”
