On his Tuesday radio show, conservative talk show host Mark Levin said House majority whip Kevin McCarthy, who this weekend claimed Congress could soon pass a comprehensive immigration bill, has a political death wish.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m convinced the Republican leadership — particularly in the House — has a Republican death wish,” Levin said. “When you put these Mickey Mouse types in charge of the Republican Party in the House, what do you get, Mr. Producer? You get mice turds. And that’s what we have here: mice turds from the likes of [Rep.] Kevin McCarthy.”
McCarthy had told CNN “State of the Union” host Candy Crowley that House Republican leaders wanted to “pass bills that will pass the House.”
“I want you to understand what that means, ladies and gentlemen,” Levin said. “What that means is even if he can’t cobble together a simple majority of Republicans, but if he can get enough Democrats, he’s going to pass those bills. This is a direct frontal assault on conservative tea party Republicans in the House of Representatives.”
“I don’t like these people, ladies and gentlemen,” Levin added. “They’re Rasputins. Who’s that? Google it. But that’s exactly what they are — these guys. They get on TV, they pretend they’re conservatives. They speak in platitudes. They got their hair all nice, all sprayed down, their make-up on, their ties with the knot nice and tight, their collar starched. But they’re still jerks.”
