Fox News hot mic catches Kevin McCarthy slamming Liz Cheney

The battle between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) went to a whole new level this week after a hot mic moment during a Fox News interview was released.

According to Mediaite, McCarthy, who was prepping for an interview with Fox News host Steve Doocy on Tuesday morning, expressed his true feelings about Cheney’s future in the party, admitting that he’s “had it with her” while suggesting that a motion to oust her from her number three GOP leadership position was all but guaranteed.

Prior to his segment on “Fox & Friends,” McCarthy could be heard telling Doocy what appeared to be his private thoughts on the escalating situation with Cheney, who has drawn increased fire from many in the GOP over the past several weeks, given her desire to split the party from the influence of former President Donald Trump.

“I think she’s got real problems,” he told Doocy. “I’ve had it with — I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence.”

Presumably asked about his feelings on whether or not Cheney’s leadership position is in jeopardy and if a vote would be called to oust her, McCarthy can be heard replying, “Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.”

The hot mic moment was stunning because even though it’s not a secret that McCarthy and Cheney seem to be two opposing forces within the ranks of the Republican party, McCarthy has kept his personal opinion on the matter mostly silent.

Rumors have swirled around Washington D.C. for weeks that Cheney’s future as a GOP leader was at stake, but given McCarthy’s revelations on Tuesday morning before his interview, it looks like it’s all but a done deal.

Only time will tell how Cheney’s GOP colleagues will vote if a motion to strip her of leadership is conducted, but most recent reports indicate that she’s likely on her way out, which would be a devastating blow to her future in politics.

  1. I never thought Cheney should have been allowed to serve in any Political Office period. She is out for blood, wanting to get even with all those like myself who finally spoke out about he Father, who destroyed his own ‘Hero’ reputation & showed him as being a Dirty Rotten Scoundrel.

  2. ❤💥👍CHRISTrumpOwensMcCarthy and all his US TRUMPlican Lawmakers successfully US 2022/2024 Reelected Landslide

  3. Why is this making the news ?? It’s no surprise that NO Republicans like inbred , street walking , spew eating , LIBERAL , RINO , $LUT Liz Cheney !!!!!

  4. Politicians must put what is best for our country and people first! That’s why they are elected..It is clear from cheney’s actions and words that she pretty much hates the President who has done more to help our country and people than anyone in my lifetime. If she and the other’s cannot put aside personal animosities they are not doing their job! And pelosi defending her tells me all I need to know..

  5. Time for Liz to go the American people can’t wait till you are voted Out. We want people who stand up for America not a person who cares about herself.

    1. …and yet you all blindly follow a man (Trump) who has proven time and again he only cares for himself. Lunacy!

      1. Hey Alan, evidently you are a Biden follower, By the time he has served his one term, he will have destroyed a lot of progress that was made under Trump, Biden is MENTALLY off, he can’t remember where is and what he is doing there, in other words Biden has a SEVERE mental problem and the Demoncrats are having a hard time covering for his mental condition!!

      2. What a loser. A man that only cares for himself doesn’t give his presidential salary to charity. Name just one thing in this country that was made worse by Trump’s policies. Better economy, better Middle East situation, lower gas prices in case you haven’t gone to the pump lately, better southern border protection. This bumbling idiot in the white house wants us all vaccinated wearing our masks, social distancing and quarantining, but opens the flood gates at the southern border to illegals coming in with no masks going all over the country and 10% are infected with COVID. Anyone with an IQ above 75 knows this is a disaster. You watch too much MSM communist propaganda. Democrats are following Hitlers playbook, first control the media, then take away their guns.

  6. He spoke truth which seems to be very offensive to some now.Good for him .Tired of all this rewarding evil behaviour from some of these sold out politicians .Hope this woman is rep!aced

  7. Sandy…what is the job you’re doing from home that brings in that kind of money?
    I didn’t make that much in the five years before retiring and had to commute twice
    a day! I think people should be able to get in a motorhome or 5th wheel and gooo!
    Work from your travel computer and home-school your kids.

    1. You can bet your boots, Dale, whatever she’s peddling, it’s a scam! And I’m very surprised that these websites permit her kind of solicitation — disappointing. 🙁

  8. [ STAY AT HOME & WORK AT HOME ]
    Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65000 to $70000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

    1. If you make so much money doing whatever tricks you do, Mz Teeters, I wouldn’t think you would need to solicit others to participate. Quite sure whatever you do? It’s a scam, so take your false advertising somewhere else. Perhaps to a liberal website. They’re the ones who would fall for something like this. GO AWAY! Very surprising that this website allows your type of solicitation. 🙁

  9. Believe in God’s word. Communion without a pure heart is going to be dealt with by God. No one can get away with evil. He knows our true hearts.
