GOP Minority Leader sparks firestorm of outrage after blaming “everybody” for Trump mob attack

Republicans have been struggling to deal with the fallout from the January 6th storming of Capitol Hill by a mob of rabid Trump supporters, trapped between the urge to condemn the mob and perpetually terrified of displeasing the MAGA voters they rely on to keep from being primaried by a radicalized hot tub salesman from Topeka.

This has led to some rather ridiculous mental gymnastics from prominent Republicans, like GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who tried to tell an interviewer that “every” American bears some responsibility to the mob that was directly incited by Donald Trump and several members of Kevin’s own kaucus.

“I also think everybody across this country has some responsibility,” whined McCarthy to Greta Van Susteren, deciding that Rep. Maxine Waters, people who oppose Trump, and social media users who are mean to him are as equally responsible for the Capitol siege as the guy who told his fans to “fight back harder” and “show strength.”

“I think this is what we have to get to the bottom of, and when you start talking about who has responsibilities, I think there’s going to be a lot more questions, a lot more answers we have to have in the coming future,” hedged McCarthy.

It is absolutely ridiculous for McCarthy to try to downplay Trump’s role in inciting the riot and very telling that he still feels the need to do so even though Trump isn’t even president anymore!
