Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida tweeted a sarcastic comment on Thursday evening about three top GOP congressional leaders, told called them a “McFailure” in a play on their last names.
Gaetz tweeted, “McCarthy. McConnell. McDaniel. McFailure.” He referred to Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Ronna McDaniel, a Republican National Committee Chairwoman.
Gaetz tweeted after she won the re-election on Tuesday for Florida’s 1st congressional district. The results show stiff competition for control of the House and Senate.
The midterm election results didn’t come out for those GOP politicians who had expected a “red wave” this year.
Many well-known Trump’s endorsed candidates lost their races, such as Senate candidate Mehmet Oz and possible future governors Doug Mastriano and Tudor Dixon.
As a result, came out, many members of the Republican Party started blaming one another for their loss, and many also blamed former President Donald Trump.
Gaetz’s tweet blamed McCarthy, McConnell, and McDaniel. The representative of Florida also criticized McCarthy before, citing her as a weak and incapable leader while bringing out his devotion to Donald Trump.
McCarthy and McConnell have both cleaved from the groundless assertions that the election held in 2020 was rigged. This is what former president Donald Trump and his most devoted supporters are continuously quoting. McConnell had pinpointed that Trump lost in the presidential election of 2020 by seven million votes in the well-known ballot and 306-232 in the Electoral College.
McCarthy and McConnell were outraged at Trump after the Capitol riot, whereas McCarthy said he would have asked Trump to leave his post. He said that the report was “false and wrong.”
Trump, in exchange, asked McConnell for a replacement and attacked him and his wife, Elaine Chao. However, he said that he would endorse McCarthy for a bid for the speaker of the House.
McDaniel shared good terms with Donald Trump than McConnell and McCarthy before, but now she has also maintained a distance from voter fraud assertions in November’s midterm. She said that her party should accept the results. McDaniel warned that candidates shouldn’t create hurdles in processing the play and let it go smoothly with recounts and court resolutions should results be questioned.
