Chip Roy is not pleased with his colleagues.
The Republican representative joins Steve Deace to lash out at the termination of Kevin McCarthy’s role as House speaker. Deace is also at his wits' end.
“I am paid to care; I don’t care. It’s getting harder to make me care. This is a joke, it’s rudderless, and it seems as if we want to sell each other talking points [rather] than actually produce any form of substantive victory,” Deace tells Roy.
The motion to vacate McCarthy’s position was filed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who joined House Democrats to oust McCarthy by a vote of 216-210 earlier this week.
Roy believes that some in the “MAGA camp” are enjoying “the circular firing squad.”
“I’ve spent a lifetime fighting for limited-government conservatism. I have laid it all on the line,” Roy tells Deace.
“You go around talking your big game and thumping your chest on Twitter, yeah, come to my office to come have a debate, mother. You know why? Because I’m standing up for this country every single day.”
Deace contends that Roy is not alone, adding, “I think that sums up the way a lot of people think, brother, I do. I just don’t think they know what to do instead.”
Roy is also quite unimpressed by the keyboard warriors who believe their tweets will turn America around for the better.
“If people want to play this out in real time, and deal with this every single minute and every single day on social media,” Roy notes, “Don’t think that that’s somehow going to change the game, because what we gotta do, is we have to actually define the fight.”
“Just don’t think that getting out on social media, that that’s somehow real,” he adds, “It ain't.”
