Was MSNBC’s Brian Williams having a little fun on Thursday night while reporting on spineless House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) having a meeting with the disgraced, twice-impeached 45th POTUS?
McCarthy, who after the January 6 insurrection, stated that Donald Trump bore responsibility for the violence, had flown down to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach so he could kiss the ass of the mango-hued failed real estate developer, where the two reportedly kissed and made up and discussed a strategy for the American Fascist party to regain a majority in the 2022 midterm elections.
McCarthy released a statement:
“Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022. A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on.”
Williams promised viewers of his The 11th Hour With Brian Williams show, along with his guests writer and podcast host Baratunde Thurston and conservative political analyst Bill Kristol, “the first exclusive video” from the meeting. But somehow that iconic “you complete me” scene from Cameron Crowe‘s Jerry Maguire (1996), where Tom Cruise‘s character professes his love to Renée Zellweger is the clip that rolled.
After, Williams deadpanned:
“Obviously, we have rolled the wrong clip. We were sold a bill of good here. I thought this was going to be of the McCarthy and Trump meeting and someone is going to be, of course, in big trouble.”
On the same day,
surly frat boy Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) traveled to Wyoming to taunt Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) at a rally, attacking her over her vote to impeach the former president. Pretty fascist Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD), in her first public comments addressing the election since the murderous mob stormed the Capitol, refused to acknowledge that Joesph R. Biden had won in a free and fair election.
