McCarthy slams Biden, Pelosi during weekly press conference
UPDATED 11:54 AM PT – Thursday, July 22, 2021
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) took aim at Joe Biden and the House of Representatives during his weekly press briefing.
While addressing reporters Thursday, he came down on Biden for the skyrocketing inflation rates and the Democrat Party’s reckless spending. He said Republicans will continue their work to lower inflation, secure the border and fight the rise in violent crime.
McCarthy attributed these hardships facing Americans to the left while stating once they took the majority, Democrats defunded the police and opened the border to immigrants. He also criticized Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for rejecting two Republicans he appointed to her January 6 commission.
FACT → Inflation has risen every month since President Biden took office.
Mr. President: your policies are creating these problems for Americans, and it is now your responsibility to reverse course. https://t.co/tQFn2UQrqO

McCarthy asserted it no longer matters what Pelosi does from here as it appears her commission’s report on January 6 is already predetermined.
