The news is out: [After a private meeting Wednesday night of the House Republican conference meant to hold together an increasingly divided party, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) defended controversial freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.). But as he lauded Greene’s apology to Republicans for her history of outrageous rhetoric on social media, McCarthy also claimed that the extremist ideology she supports was foreign to him.
“I think it would be helpful if you could hear exactly what she told all of us — denouncing Q-on, I don’t know if I say it right, I don’t even know what it is,” said McCarthy, referring to QAnon, a radicalized movement based on false claims that the FBI has deemed a domestic terrorism threat.]
In other words, Kevin McCarthy had a meeting where he talked about QAnon without a clue as to what he was talking about. That’s pretty stupid.
