On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough cited a report that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had to bring peace between the members of his caucus “who are closely aligned with former President Donald Trump” and more moderate GOP members who joined the Democrats in passing the recent infrastructure spending package.
The “extreme” members, to Scarborough’s thinking, are those who opposed Biden’s $1.2 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill.
Scarborough made these comments on his program “Morning Joe.”

Scarborough: ‘Kevin McCarthy has sacrificed his political soul to be speaker of the House’
Scarborough said McCarthy “sacrificed his political soul to be Speaker of the House” which in turn meant losing the respect of former President Donald Trump.
The “Morning Joe” host believes that “the most extreme members of the Republican Party” would soon be “dominating” that caucus.

Scarborough: ‘Donald Trump is saying more and more every day how little respect he has for Kevin McCarthy because he’s not siding with the really extreme members of that Republican caucus’
He continued, “Donald Trump is saying more and more every day how little respect he has for Kevin McCarthy because he’s not siding with the really extreme members of that Republican caucus because he’s trying at times to act like a speaker in waiting should act, needs to act, but he can’t do that.”
“And so what we’re seeing is, in the words of my grandma, you don’t want to let that horse out of the barn,” Scarborough insisted. “The horse is starting to get out of the barn, and pretty soon, you’re going to see the most extreme members of the Republican Party inside the House caucus dominating what goes on there.”
The “Morning Joe” segment was in response to an NBC article that claimed that those Republicans who did not vote for Biden’s ‘infrastructure’ bill are “far-right.”
