If he had been joking about a man, never would have heard about it. So much for equality Well he's not wrong!!! Although not the best choice of words, there are many who feel the same Stop selling the “joking” excuse. Threatening the Speaker of the House is not a joke, especially when it comes from the minority leader. This is inexcusable.

The loud & obnoxious lying side of the Pubs have NO sense of humour at all. Slammed. Or fired? But it’s okay for all the nasty comments SpeakerPelosi and chuckschumer say hope his wife leaves johnscalhoun It was not a joke. It was a felony. Slammed?

'It will be hard not to hit her with it but I will bang it down,' McCarthy said, according to a reporter who was at the event Lmao he speaks facts This type of behavior and banter is juvenile and at best sophomoric. McCarthy better get himself together ASAP! Wow if pelosi said that I would be pissed so him saying is wrong just the same wtf is wrong with our government our country is a mess

He knows she could take him down with her gavel behind her back. Qevin has NO Leadership & NO Shame! Democrats loved Rahm for this. I guess they didn't take everything literally back then. It’s 2021 misogyny isn’t funny and it never was He ain’t lyin Whats wrong with that He is a complete joke so this tracks with what he usually does.

This is the rhetoric that leads to violence against Americans who have different points of view or party affiliations. Trump's words have hurt and killed many people without accountability, so McCarthy has decided to follow Trump's example with his base. It's up to us, the American people, to make sure that he never realize his warped and disastrous dream.

Comments like this are what makes Speaker Pelosi call him a moron. He is not a leader. Well, he BETTER use a weapon because she would beat his sorry ass otherwise... Not funny. I am sure McCarthy could find something constructive to say. He has that TFG IQ45 way of thinking. He’s a putz. What type of man would want to hit an 80 year old woman. How disgusting.

Dufus has got to go! Abolish the filibuster! I feel the committee that was collected for the January 6th insurrection commission was selected property because we have seen the impeachment trials and they both were a joke! The insurrection to our nations capital is anything but funny and yes, I’m a Republican!

He's sick. McCarthy is the House Minority Leader, and he doesn't have the free pass given to the House Majority Leader. Only jokes made by progressives have freedom of speech.

This is all the GOP is now Just months ago GOP voters tried to take violently overthrow the government and drag her out to the gallows they built to hang her/others. Now that we know at least 1 GOP member wore a bulletproof vest we need to ask how many of them knew stayed silent Things must be bad for Mc Cathy to feel the need to make up violent Fantasies about Speaker Pelosi that is as low as you can get Kevin you should hand in your resignation before you start to harm yourself out of frustration .

The headlines make sure to put JOKING instead of highlighting he threatened a woman Does he always have to be a jerk? SMDH. Please do it. It wouldn’t get her attention. She would be like what ice cream should I try from my 10k fridge. Not qualities for a speaker !!GOPLeader HouseGOP Please don't tell me, trump's gone now the world will be effected with McCarthy bile

If he can easily joke about hitting a woman in the workplace then you have to think how easy it would be for him to actually hit a woman at home. Not much difference Why do you find violence against women funny?

Yah, excuse me GOPLeader , you were joking ? Joking about hitting SpeakerPelosi ? Just a few months ago your insurrectionists were screaming out her name wanting to beat or kill her 😥 and don't you understand, we have a epidemic of violence against women? 😭 DISGUSTING!! McCarthy sounds like the psychological severely disordered character from a horror story!!!

Today’s representatives teach ordinary people how to misbehave, become violent, toxic, and destructive to law and order. Civility is no longer the norm and this indicates how current representatives are damn, ignorant or uneducated. If this continues America’s doomsday is near. He need to do he is job from this morron 👇🏻

Meanwhile Fox News line is people can't take a joke. Evolution is really slow with that crowd. He would say anything to please his master You seem like the type that would hit women.

Enough! Start acting like humans! Didn't he say Trump was going to be the next speakers of the house I'm confused because I thought Trump was coming back into the oval office this month? He should be removed for inciting a woman get hurt or beat up. For some reason the Republicans have become the PartyOfViolence and think it is ok. It’s not ok. They need to denounce this type of talk. Any woman, any woman in the Republican Party that does not denounce this is a poor excuse!

he is considered a complete failure by many whom resent his beligerance I’m trying to remember the names of the Dems who threaten to take President Trump out? What is this guy’s problem? Misogynist? Sexist? Abusive? All three? Oh so now assault is what GOPLeader is suggesting? No wonder why he’s not taking torch insurrection serious. This type of threat towards SpeakerPelosi should be taken serious and he should be sanctioned or whatever the House rules are. This not ok.

He can hit a woman but kiss a man's ass! GOPLeader McCarthy You just cannot make jokes like that especially after those folks were hunting this woman down in her office to kill her. When you think about it, really how many people does it take to hunt & kill an 80 yr. old lady. He needs to step down . Joking, my ass. What a disgrace.

Something trump stuck in his head to say. Trump had nothing but venom toward the SPEAKER IF THE HOUSE, MADAM PELOSI. These right wing men hate competent women. GOPLeader should be removed from Congress for threatening Speaker Pelosi! Wondering the cost of climbing up Trumps butt!

Is it not criminal joking or not to threaten an elected GOVT. OFFICIAL! If that type of the threatening were upon trumpski when his royale highness was playing GRIFTERISM as per russian president V putin a trial and jail time wud be absolute punishment 🤔🙄 “Joking” More poor/failed journalism by hacks on cable tv. Spreading GOPLeader’s lie/excuse “it’s a joke” when threatening physical assault against a political rival but not pressing him on the issue. Disgraceful. You should be ashamed.

Well, she did bully him by calling him a moron!😂🤪🤣 This wasn’t a joke. ResignMcCarthy pig. Some joke. You knew he was evil when he defended insurrection. This man, who wants desperately to be Speaker of the House, has the depth of a five-year-old. Consequences?

Nothing about what he said was funny. How would he like it if someone said that about his mother, wife or daughter? --- Seditious gopleader supports the overthrow of democracy. ...A comment from him re. an --actual-- House leader is a surprise? antiAmerican Is that supposed to be a joke? Like, she's so physically big in any way that it's hard not to miss hitting her? This guy must be a laugh riot at parties.

He owes her a apology I bet he thought it was funny as fux on 1/6 when he called Trump asking for help during the insurrection. Haha Qevin.
