    Trumpism has deadly disaster to the GOP party of dysfunction. By not governing for citizens and America Trump continues to destroy democracy.

  2. Neutrality on January 9, 2023 at 2:13 am

    McCarthy has guaranteed his place in history, as the first BABOON to be the Speaker Of The House! We now have a handful of representatives governing the entire House. Where is our Democracy now?

  3. Kenneth O on January 9, 2023 at 2:13 am

    I am comforted in knowing that WE will take back the house …and make Hakeem Jeffries speaker.

  4. Obamaistoast2012 on January 9, 2023 at 2:14 am

    There is no one at MSLSD qualified to make an in depth analysis

  5. Van Iyke on January 9, 2023 at 2:14 am

  7. Spencer TwoEightyZ on January 9, 2023 at 2:15 am

  9. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:17 am

  10. Andrew Walton on January 9, 2023 at 2:18 am

  11. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:20 am

  12. Adriana on January 9, 2023 at 2:20 am

    He won ❤❤❤ Kevin McCarthy is the Speaker.

  13. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:21 am

    What about the left that doesn’t care about Americans

  14. Chris Paschal on January 9, 2023 at 2:21 am

    Boy, Putin sure knew what he was doing when he sunk his hooks into Trump to help him hijack the GOP via the so-called Freedom Caucus.

  15. Jeanne Iben on January 9, 2023 at 2:23 am

    I will never understand why anyone but white men join the republican party.

  16. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:23 am

    I’m glad you guys think it’s funny that our freedom is being taken away from us

  17. Scott Bigler on January 9, 2023 at 2:24 am

    Kevin is Speaker because the American people were tired of Pelosi.😉

  18. Mighty Mystery on January 9, 2023 at 2:24 am

    Yet now, after some blackmail or bribery from Trump, with the help of MTG, enough people swung to get McCarthy in. And the unanimous failure of Republicans to cheer in references to doing what is good for all the People, and especially, the sullen refusal to join in the chant, "U-S-A!" tells us exactly where the Republikan motivation lies: they are avariciously intent on party for the sake of party, where the means _is_ the end, and they will destroy democracy and the Nation if needed, to keep the People out of the way of party, since, as numbers show, the People want this abomination to go away.

  19. Nick Ader on January 9, 2023 at 2:24 am

    it is guaranteed that the House Republicans wont accomplish anything for another 2 years

  20. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:25 am

    You know why because he said he was going to stop funding the $800 and something illegal immigrant in the country so all the sudden he doesn’t know nothing

  24. Tony Pippins on January 9, 2023 at 2:27 am

    Another fool Republicans are fools idiots and with no agenda

  25. Dave Don on January 9, 2023 at 2:29 am

    The plan. Do not elect me until after j6 😂😂😂😂.

  26. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:29 am

    You didn’t want to say that other word why you started to but then you changed

  27. Holly Hold on January 9, 2023 at 2:32 am

    Sen. Mike Lee is very much NOT gone, Michael Steele. He was covertly involved with the insurrection, and barely escaped legal exposure by a hair, (Text msgs, cell phone calls to + from Insurrection Central Control & Command).

    He IS an atty and knew, as WH counsel advised & testified, how very illegal the self-coup was.

  28. Nosa Oyemade on January 9, 2023 at 2:33 am

    McCarthy has no spine, he actually thanked Trump for winning.🤮The things some will do for power; he mortgaged his soul for what he thinks is power but has actually relinquished power to the traitors, those who partook of the insurrection. I hope the DOJ will take investigate them and haul them all to jail.

  29. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:34 am

    Great principles you mean like the district that she runs all that is a great principles reminds me of the Bronx in New York in the beautiful state of California what about San Francisco still closed down after 2 years what happened to all the money that they got to rebuild back America and here it is 3 years later just about from the riots and what did they build back the only thing they built was their pockets full of money in the last 2 years more than ever

  30. Richard on January 9, 2023 at 2:39 am

    Investigating the Investigators is a sure way to say that you’re guilty of treason !!🤔😶

  31. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:40 am

    That’s why the rest of the world is laughing at us and hating us for leaving the Americans and the soldiers in Afghanistan

  32. Neutrality on January 9, 2023 at 2:42 am

    Why are numerous votes allowed? Why didn’t Jeffries win the on the first vote? Imagine if we had 12 elections for president?

  33. David Silveira on January 9, 2023 at 2:43 am

    But he knew enough to stop the funding of the illegal immigrants not like this administration and the former speaker

  34. Joseph Sonora on January 9, 2023 at 2:44 am

    Whoops! Looks like it backfired on ya because Kevin got elected any old way. Congratulations GOP! ❤️

  35. John Niro on January 9, 2023 at 2:44 am

    Arrest the 34 !! At least sanction them !! Bounce them out of office !!

  36. Johnnie Pegues on January 9, 2023 at 2:46 am

    GOP circus
    SELL OUTS LATE NIGHT BACK ROOM DEALS WHAT A JOKE

  37. Randy Johnson on January 9, 2023 at 2:47 am

    Time to move on. We have elected a new Speaker

  38. Marion on January 9, 2023 at 2:47 am

    McCarthy sold his heart to the Devil MTG a she devil

  39. T Will on January 9, 2023 at 2:47 am

    It used to take 20% of Congress for a no confidence vote for the Speaker.
    Now it takes just one person?
    Dumb.
    Any bets as to how many times Matt Gaetz and Boo-Boo pull that stunt?

  40. EarlClue on January 9, 2023 at 2:48 am

    mike was gop token to counter Obama,

  41. Maddie Vega on January 9, 2023 at 2:51 am

  42. Martin Smith on January 9, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Matt Gaetz: The Better Call Saul of Congress.

  45. Oakley Racer on January 9, 2023 at 3:04 am

    What a mess. The rest of the term will be a disaster.

  46. Sherry Gadberry Turner on January 9, 2023 at 3:08 am

    The Nazi Party started out as a minor extremist party too. 😬

  47. Sherry Gadberry Turner on January 9, 2023 at 3:10 am

    These people fear the wrong things! China is NOT the one that has been buying the most farmland. Saudi Arabia owns more land than China! 🙄

  48. Richard Dandanell on January 9, 2023 at 3:11 am

    These pro dictatorship extremists are slowly but surely consolidating their power and control over our democracy . If direct action is not taken against these freedom destroyers soon . We won’t have a democracy and even their supporters will be sorry .

  49. Eric Nathanson on January 9, 2023 at 3:11 am

    Okay, mostly right (obviously) but saying President Johnson, who pushed for and signed the Civil Rights, Voting Rights and Fair Housing acts had no principles is absurd. He had much to answer for as regards the Vietnam War, but don’t compare him to Kevin McCarthy, for god’s sake 🙄
