After this past week’s video of Kevin McCarthy working behind President Trump’s back with Liz Cheney to get President Trump to resign after the stolen 2020 Election, Roger Stone is calling for RINO Kevin McCarthy from California to resign.
Right-wing strategist Roger Stone, a prominent Donald Trump ally, demanded that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy resign, calling him a “disgrace” after leaked audio from January 10, 2021 showed that he believed the then-president should resign following the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6.
The New York Times on Thursday reported that McCarthy told other GOP lawmakers after the pro-Trump Capitol riot targeting the federal legislative branch of government that he planned to urge the then-president to step down days before the end of his term. McCarthy later released a statement saying the reporting was “totally false and wrong.”
However, on Thursday evening, the Times published audio of him telling lawmakers what the newspaper had reported he said. “I’m seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight,” the GOP House leader said in the brief clip from January 10, 2021. He added that he would tell Trump “it would be my recommendation you should resign.”
“California RINO Kevin McCarthy is a disgrace to the republican party and he needs to resign,” the Trump ally wrote in the post. RINO is an acronym meaning “Republican in name only.” It is readily used by Republicans against other Republicans they view as not adequately in step with their political party’s ideology.
A video of McCarthy talking calmly with Liz Cheney from January 10, 2021, was leaked this past week where they are talking about getting President Trump to resign.
