President Trump endorsed McCarthy for speaker yesterday morning on his Truth social media site, making Gaetz’s vote for Trump seem like nonsensical grandstanding.

Some really good conversations took place last night, and it’s now time for all of our GREAT Republican House Members to VOTE FOR KEVIN, CLOSE THE DEAL, TAKE THE VICTORY, & WATCH CRAZY NANCY PELOSI FLY BACK HOME TO A VERY BROKEN CALIFORNIA,THE ONLY SPEAKER IN U.S. HISTORY TO HAVE LOST THE “HOUSE” TWICE! REPUBLICANS, DO NOT TURN A GREAT TRIUMPH INTO A GIANT & EMBARRASSING DEFEAT. IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE, YOU DESERVE IT. Kevin McCarthy will do a good job, and maybe even a GREAT JOB – JUST WATCH! ~Donald J. Trump

House Adjourns After McCarthy Loses Sixth Vote, Gaetz won’t budge

Gaetz’s Trump vote got great reviews on Twitter from the usual crowd of Trump acolytes; although it’s doubtful, most Trump supporters support the Gaetz vote since Trump has not rescinded his endorsement of McCarthy.

Gaetz did follow through on the promise he made in March of 2022.

Many Republicans are losing patience with the anti-McCarthy group, as Sean Hannity demonstrated in his interview last night with Lauren Boebert. in the interview, Boebert also suggested voting for Trump.
