CNN’s Abby Phillip Busts Kevin McCarthy’s Blame Claim With Walk Down Memory Lane

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) accused Democrats of picking politics over the institution of the House following his ousting from the speakership role this week.

On Wednesday, CNN’s Abby Phillip suggested, “If you look at the recent history of Republican speakers, the cause of death becomes a little clearer.”

Phillip added, “McCarthy, ousted. Paul Ryan quit in disgust over his right flank. John Boehner, pushed out by the Freedom Caucus.”
