McCarthy said that the lewd remarks were “disgraceful,” and that “comments like these have no business on any platform.”
Roberts, who is running as an Independent for the 2nd Congressional District, was responding to a tweet from Charlie Kirk, about the size of the first lady’s staff in comparison to Michelle Obama’s staff.
Roberts asked Kirk if he knew that the first lady “works by the hour,” and then he placed hashtags on the words, “thinkdirty” and “hoebag.” (RELATED: Oregon Congressional Candidate Takes Tasteless Twitter Shot At Melania Trump, Likens)
