  • Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reportedly told former President Donald Trump, “F*** you” in a phone call following his historic ouster from the position, which Trump opted not to help the lawmaker avoid.
  • According to the Washington Post, which cited several sources familiar with the phone call, Trump listed his reasons for not assisting McCarthy in avoiding such a fate weeks after the motion to vacate was passed.
  • The former president allegedly chastised McCarthy for not being more forceful in moving to expunge his two impeachments, as well as the speaker’s hesitance to endorse him in the 2024 presidential race.
  • After Trump’s reprimand, McCarthy reportedly said the expletive. However, McCarthy’s team denies the curse was said.
