McCarthy Melts Down after Gaetz Threatens to Remove Him: “File the F**king Motion!”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy buckled under GOP threats from Matt Gaetz remove him for failing to meet the demands from his party’s Freedom Caucus members

“If you want to file the motion, file the f**king motion,” McCarthy snapped at GOP colleagues Thursday.

Earlier, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) criticized McCarthy, threatening to bring a motion to vacate McCarthy’s chair.

Gaetz and other Republicans accused McCarthy of dragging his feet on a Biden impeachment inquiry.

Despite McCarthy announcing the impeachment inquiry against Biden this week, Gatez said it isn’t enough.

“I showed frustration in here because I am frustrated,” McCarthy told reporters following the GOP meeting. “Frustrated with some people in the conference.”

Gaetz later fired back at McCarthy.

“Instead of emotionally cursing, maybe the Speaker should just keep his word from January on balanced budgets, term limits and single-subject spending bills,” he told The Hill.

But some GOP members are getting a little tired of Gaetz’s threats.

“We don’t try to air our laundry but again, you know, to that point, if somebody wants to file a motion to vacate, then file the f—ing motion to vacate, and that’s it,” said Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL).

“And stop holding up everybody’s work, stop holding it, you know, over people’s head like it’s, you know, like, it’s this noose that you’re going to try to get somebody to walk into.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also called out Gaetz for holding up a Pentagon appropriations bill over demands that McCarthy presents them with top-line figures for all 12 appropriations bills that are on the table.

“If we’re going to be able to do our job, we need every single member in our conference to show up and face everyone else, and then we can work out our differences and fund the government,” she said.
