Keeping up with the Kardashians Congress

Welcome to the 118th Congress, season one, a taxpayer-funded reality show where, instead of flashy women battling it out, it’s mostly white old men vying for rights. force, protect Donald Trump, and target Joe Biden. Last week’s episode was special Kevin McCarthy miserably promises to the far right everything from one a person’s movement to leave blank very potential ceiling default. In fact, McCarthy has promised so many people that Republicans Nancy’s Mace wonder Sunday on CBS Facing the Fatherland, “So my question today is what behind-the-scenes deals have been cut?”

Good question! Because it looks like McCarthy gave away to the store to get the hammer. On Monday, McCarthy began her first week as Speaker by turning down Dan Crenshaw as chair of the Homeland Security Committee, and instead chose a member of the House Freedom Caucus Marked in green. You may remember the agent from Tennessee: He must withdraw his nomination for Secretary of the Army after his anti-transgender comments emerged. After receiving his intriguing assignment, Green told reporters on Monday that he’s going to put on a permanent assignment. border officer.

We’re still learning more details about the concessions and hand-twisting that appeared to have taken place last week out of reach of the C-SPAN cameras to bring McCarthy to the finish line in the 15th vote. The political Olivia beaver tweeted Tuesday, “At least two Republicans out of 20 McCarthy supporters received a direct threat from the GOP donor. Thomas Peterffy last week, according to the GOP sources I spoke with. The Beavers shared a screenshot of a message believed to be from Peterffy: “What’s going on in the house is weakening the group. Unless you vote for Kevin now, we will never give you any money, big donors.

This season looks like it will have a lot of twists and turns as the House of Representatives turns Congress into The real housewives of the Longworth building.

Republicans in the newly empowered House of Representatives wasted no time in making false equivalences and punishing their enemies all the way. It’s McCarthy told Punchbowl that he will block Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell served on the Intelligence Committee. (He was called to Ilhan Omar lost its seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee.) Meanwhile, Arizona’s Paul Gosar told Punchbowl, “They promised me that if I wanted to stay in Natural Resources and Oversight, I could stay.” Gosar, who was stripped about his committee duties in 2021 for posting an animated video depicting him killing the Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and last year speak At a conference of white nationalists, he announced that he would investigate the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. mark Milley Because Is one “Sell water to sell water to China.”

Another lunatic who is planning to return to the committee is Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who somehow appeared last week looking like a savvy female politician because of her pro-McCarthy stance, while other far-right extremists Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz Still Never McCarthy. Greene began the first week of the 118th Congress by calling for impeachment Biden and the Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas because “Borders are the deadliest crisis in America and fentanyl is killing Americans every day [sic].” Like me warning after the November midterm elections, “The Marjorie Taylor Greene Convention is upon us.” And indeed, her influence was on full display just moments after McCarthy’s victory.

Speaking of GOP celebrities, who showed up last week even more encouragingly, Gaetz, who plays the main villain McCarthy in the movie The Speaker’s vote, is unsurprisingly wanted. keep the C-SPAN cameras running around the room instead of reverting to the more static view Americans traditionally receive. “Our fellow Americans deserve to know when we’re disappointed with each other, kind to each other, present or absent,” he said. told CNN. “The current group view of Congress is outdated and explosive.”

Than media access in the room would be good for the sake of transparency and something that C-SPAN was pushing for long before last week’s imbroglio Speaker. But the risk is that attention-hungry members of Congress, already incentivized to arouse outrage for attention, only dial mad.

Despite voters rejecting Trumpism again in the 2022 midterm elections and despite the fact that Republicans have a razor-thin majority, the lesson they seem to have learned is that insanity is good for the brand. But it’s not just young people who are acting like they belong Andy Cohen universe, Montana boomer Ryan Zinke joined the action. just came out resignation as Secretary of the Interior in the context of “multiple investigations concerning his real estate transactions in the state of Montana, his hometown, and his conduct in office,” and has narrow victory in a very red state, Zinke gave a speech on the floor in which the bullshit assertion was that, “Despite the underground state constantly trying to stop me, I stand before you as a duly elected member of the United States Congress and tell you that there is a deep state…. They want to wipe out American cowboys.” I’m sorry, what?

Elsewhere in ignoring the lessons of the midterm elections, Republicans are It’s really amazing anti-abortion legislation, while fulfilling fantasies of conservative persecution by forming a new subcommittee to probe alleged “weaponization of the federal government.”

You might think this GOP leadership is so involved in trying to impeach Biden that they don’t have time to deal with the mass sorcerer in their caucus and you are in fact right. majority leader Steve scales up speak Tuesday morning George Santos the matter is being handled “internally,” more: “We’ll have to sit down and talk to him.” Oh, well, in that case. Maybe Brazilian government will solve it because the GOP Congress certainly won’t.

On Tuesday night, inside the Capitol, the true intellectual leader and best propagandist of the Republican Party, **Sean Hannity—**fresh other deposition in the defamation lawsuit Dominion vs. Fox—doing his first TV interview with McCarthy since becoming a Speaker. During that sit-down, Hannity previewed some of what the majority of these nine-seat GOP had planned. But the interview shows that House GOP would probably be better off not doing the interview. First, McCarthy has made it pretty clear that he doesn’t understand how the debt ceiling works. Meanwhile, Hannity was confused and unintentionally hilariously surprised about party diversity as white members of Congress fill the camera frame.
