Rachel Maddow Reveals The Awful Truth: Boehner’s Heir Apparent is a Bumbling Idiot (Video)

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 11.12.47 AMBy now most people have probably heard about John Boehner’s impending departure from Congress. While many on the left and right celebrated this news, I warned progressives that we shouldn’t be too excited about the fact that Boehner’s no longer going to be House Speaker. Especially considering the circumstances.

Think about it; Boehner isn’t leaving because he was simply too outdated and radical for a GOP that’s been trying desperately to bring itself into the 21st century. He’s not being pushed out because Democrats reclaimed the House and are replacing him with a liberal. He’s leaving essentially because a good chunk of his own party believes he’s too liberal and has betrayed the GOP. That is a testament to how ridiculous all of this is. Boehner is despised by many progressives and liberals because he’s easily been one of the most obstructive House Speakers in history – yet many on the far-right actually see him as not much better than President Obama.

It’s insane.

Well, as I wrote soon after his announcement, his successor is likely to be much worse than he is. It seems my assumptions (and fears) have been confirmed as Rep. Kevin McCarthy is almost certain to replace Boehner.

Who’s that, you ask? Well, he’s a bona fide idiot. And I don’t mean idiot like in a “I really don’t like him” sort of way. He’s legitimately stupid.

If you don’t believe me, Rachel Maddow put together a fantastic segment on McCarthy last night which showcased the fact that he doesn’t seem to know proper English; the proper names of other countries; and often can’t even put together coherent sentences.

Here’s an actual line from a McCarthy speech which Maddow played several clips from:

To those who return home are being disrespected by the VA, that can’t keep the simple promise to all of our heroes to the need when they need it most.

He also went on to say he had visited Hungria. I have no clue where that is, but according to Google it’s the name of a Brazilian hip-hop artist. 

And if you’re still doubtful, here’s another line:

We must engage this war of radical Islam if our life depended on it.

After playing several clips of McCarthy butchering the English language, Maddow couldn’t contain her laughter any longer, at one point actually apologizing for her inability to hide the fact that she thinks he’s a bumbling moron.

And this is the guy who’s poised to replace Boehner in just a few weeks, becoming third in line to the presidency. 

That is a terrifying thought. Sadly, I think the only thing that actually scares me more is the possibility of Republicans rejecting McCarthy for the Speaker seat. If that happens, all bets are off for who they’d finally settle on.

Most likely, it would be someone along the lines of this crazy idiot.

    Rachel’s commentary on McCarthy last night, Oct 8, was absolutely BRUTAL! Haaha….. I wish he wouldn’t have stepped aside because he would our best inside asset to destroy the GOP in the next election.

    Unfortunately, the GOP is proving to the rest of the world that our form of democracy is almost no longer viable. We are no longer a model to be emulated around the globe because the GOP is proving they cannot govern, will not be governed, and are content to tear this country apart if they can’t have their way 100% of the time. Compromise has become a dirty word today, and the next pick for speaker of the house will show just how much the GOP detests that word. Expect a ‘no compromise’ ‘know nothing’ to take that position and do his best to continue to tear our country apart at the seams.
