Tucker: Kevin McCarthy Rents from a Republican Lobbyist Who Also Works for Google Effectively Mocking His Voters

‘He is a personal friend of Kevin McCarthy’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MCCARTHY: “That is a mystery. A lot of people have asked that question in Washington. As of three days ago, here was our best guess for life. So, why does frank remain a fixture in Republican politics at a time when the companies he works for are oppo to the Republican Party inclusively so? Well, in part because he is particularly close to the house minority leader, Kevin McCarthy of California, and has been since McCarthy entered politics. In the interview earlier this year, once described Kevin McCarthy as a personal friend. And that relationship gives Frank Luntz outside influence over the Republican Party’s policy decision. So, he is a personal friend of Kevin McCarthy, who was the top ranking Republican in the house. That is what we said. Turns out we didn’t know the half of it. Over the weekend, we got a call from a source who said that in fact, Frank Luntz and Kevin McCarthy are not simple he friends. They are roommates. Kevin McCarthy lives in Frank Luntz’s apartment in downtown Washington. That is what we were told. And honestly, we did not believe it. The top Republican in the house lives with a Google lobbyist? Come on. Even by the sleazy and corrupt standards of politics in Washington, that does not seem possible. But this morning, since we heard it, we called to check with Kevin McCarthy’s spokesperson.”
