Kevin McCarthy once blamed Obama's foreign policy weakness for emboldening Putin, but McCarthy recently indicated he's willing to do the same to become the next Speaker. What will he sacrifice next?
GOP is walking into a big trap. Kev is *not* one of the hardcore 190 or so that drinks the Trump kool aid enough to freeze spending and ignore Mitch's phone calls.
He won't last more than a few months, in my opinion. The question is, how long does that process of a coup against him take, and do Jordan/Scalise/Stefanik have 213 in support of their splinter wing?
Americans might even see the unthinkable, a victorious party in the house with 240 that is unable to choose a speaker and present a party of 215.
