It appears that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has sold his soul to the devil. At least, that’s what it looks like from here. After all, how else can one explain McCarthy’s recent behavior and statements?

Read on as we examine the evidence and ask ourselves, “Has anyone noticed?”

The Evidence

It all started with Kevin McCarthy’s refusal to stand up for democracy when Donald Trump tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

This became even more obvious during the January 6th Capitol riots when McCarthy refused to call out Trump or condemn the violence, despite being witness to it firsthand. Instead, he chose to remain quiet and distance himself from any real responsibility.

But it didn’t stop there.
