White House says Speaker McCarthy’s ouster is ‘shambolic behavior’ from House Republicans

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday that Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s ouster Tuesday from his role as House speaker “is like shambolic behavior that we’re seeing from House Republicans.” 

Jean-Pierre delivered the criticism after being asked by a reporter if the White House is concerned about getting along with the next House speaker — whomever it may be. 

“Again, not going to get into who’s running or who’s not running. That is, again, something for them to figure out,” she responded. “The important fact is Republicans in the House, they have the majority. This is for them to figure out. This is for them to figure out how they are going to move forward. This is a situation that they have created.” 

“I don’t want to speak for every American across the country, but I would say a majority of Americans are sick and tired of the infighting that they’re seeing in the House right now. They want to see us work in a bipartisan way,” she continued. “The president is willing to do that.” 

 

House Republicans plan to hold a candidate forum next Tuesday and an election the following day.
