Kevin McCarthy today continued to make his true feelings about Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger known in dubbing them with a new nickname:

The reporter asks McCarthy: ‘Some Republicans have been saying…’
McCarthy interrupts, ‘Some Republicans?’ with a grin on his face.
The reporter continued saying “…that the GOP should play ball on this committee…”
McCarthy says “Really? Who was that Adam and Liz? Aren’t they kind of like Pelosi Republicans?”
I know McCarthy has taken some heat recently, but he’s been on the right side of this Jan 6th committee issue from the start. And I love that he named them ‘Pelosi Republicans’, because that’s exactly what they are.
In the video above, Cheney called the nickname ‘childish’. But of course a Pelosi Republican would say that. LOL! She thinks she’s doing legitimate work on this committee when in reality she’s helping Pelosi stab Republicans in the back.
UPDATE: When asked if McCarthy would punish Cheney and Kinzinger for their participation on the committee, he replied ‘we’ll see’:
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy told me “we’ll see” when asked if Cheney and Kinzinger will be punished for serving on Jan 6 committee. I asked him the last time he talked to either of them: “Couldn’t tell you.” He called them “Pelosi Republicans.” pic.twitter.com/jMyjJBoq5I
