Gaetz Exposes McCarthy On Bartiromo’s Show … He’s Working For THEM

On Sunday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Maria Bartiromo, host of Fox News Channel’s Sunday Mornings Future, engaged in a lively debate concerning the internal conflict among members of the Republican Party regarding the budget and Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). With the current fiscal year set to end on September 30th, it is imperative that House representatives pass funding bills soon to avoid a partial government shutdown.

Bartiromo preceded the segment with Gaetz by interviewing House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), who is an ally of McCarthy’s. Jordan urged Republicans to back a short-term continuing resolution so that the government would be able to avoid a shutdown. On the other hand, Gaetz does not support any CR and is trying to make sure McCarthy follows through on his promise of funding the government via individual bills passed in regular order.

Bartiromo defended McCarthy’s work setting up investigation committees on the Bidens, weaponizing the government and China. Gaetz disagreed, claiming these committees had yet to produce any results, citing how Donald Trump Jr. was summoned before House committees three times in 2019 while Hunter Biden has not yet been subpoenaed. However, McCarthy stated that he is waiting for a suitable opportunity after further bank records have been looked into to call Hunter Biden to testify.

In one of the many clashes in the nearly nine minute interview, Gaetz corrected Bartiromo when she said McCarthy has made the J6 Capitol videos available to anyone who wants to see them.

Gaetz hit the nail on the head with on the performative nature of McCarthy’s speakership in this exchange with Bartiromo:

Maria Bartiromo: “How about the fact that he [McCarthy] set up a China select committee to keep china accountable and of course he has launched this enquiry into impeachment potentially for President Biden, is that not what you want?”

Rep. Matt Gaetz: “These committees have done nothing to reduce inflation, they have done nothing to actually constrain the Biden govt. We can set up committees and have hearings and yell at people but at the end of the day we still send the check to fund a weaponized govt, having a weaponized subcommittee is little relief to the American people. And if any of these were serious we would be sending out subpoenas and compelling process the way Jan 6th committee did… We are playing patty cake with the Bidens.”

Complete interview with added comment by Gaetz, “The way to fund the government is not by doing it the same way Congress has since the mid-90s, where it’s one up or down vote on the entire government all at once. We should have separate single-subject spending bills.@ SpeakerMcCarthy promised that in January. He is in breach of that promise. I’m not here to hold the government hostage. I’m here to hold Kevin McCarthy to his word.”

Towards the end of the interview, Bartiromo went hard at Gaetz, accusing him of “indirectly working with Democrats, allowing Chuck Schumer to come up with a continuing resolution next week” and asking if he has a “vendetta” against McCarthy. Bartiromo also accused Gaetz of “enabling” Democrats, all of which Gaetz denied.

Reaction:

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC), “This is the best interview I have ever seen. The ad hominem attacks against @RepMattGaetz will undoubtedly persist, but his every point was perfectly stated and utterly inarguable. Let’s see a rational rebuttal. Maria is usually one of the best, but she could only sputter.”

Steve Bannon, “Gaetz Destroys McCarthy and His Speakership on Maria”

Following the interview, Bartiromo posted a thank you to Gaetz, “Tomorrow I will discuss this on my morning show. Pls join me – @MorningsMaria @FoxBusiness 6-9am et. & thanks so much for joining me today @RepMattGaetz”
