Kevin McCarthy’s lucky he’ll never lose a congressional election in Kern County because he’d never survive as a comedian. Last year he confidentially told GOP leaders, “There are two people I think Putin pays, Dana Rohrabacher and Trump. Swear to God.”
“That’s absurd,” McCarthy and Paul Ryan aides now say.
“We have the tape,” responds the Washington Post.
“Just a failed attempt at humor,” counter the aides.
McCarthy actually got a few strained laughs but no Republicans are amused today, especially Donald Trump.
The Post meanwhile reports Woodward and Bernstein are planning a comeback.
