Speaker McCarthy Has Been Ousted (The Drew Mariani Show)


What do you make of Speaker Kevin McCarthy being removed from his role as House Speaker? Was it the right decision or does it just add more “headache” in Washington D.C.?

In this podcast episode of The Drew Mariani Show, Drew talks to Dr. Paul Kengor about the unprecedented removal of Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker. Representative Matt Gaetz challenged McCarthy’s speakership due in part to a budget resolution, with both very conservative Republicans and Democrats supporting the move. McCarthy’s removal was influenced by divisions within the Republican Party, with tensions between moderate and very conservative factions. Gaetz criticized McCarthy’s perceived moderation and cooperation with Democrats on issues like infrastructure and gun safety.

The discussion also explores the challenges of finding a new speaker and the power dynamics in Washington, highlighting the complexities of internal party politics.
