Paul Gosar and Kevin McCarthy Should Keep Alexander Hamilton’s Name Out of Their Mouths

If McCarthy has had anything to say about that, I haven’t heard of it. The only clip I saw of him at his Thursday press conference was him being asked to compare the Gosar affair to what happened in his conference to Liz Cheney when she was replaced by Elise Stefanik, and he cut the […]

On Wednesday, Matt Gaetz spent a chunk of his day on the defense.
