Adam Kinzinger Has Dark Prediction For Kevin McCarthy

Rep. Adam Kinzinger

During an interview on CNN, GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger predicted that incoming House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will be “completely hostage” to the extreme wings of the Republican Party and that he “won’t last long” as a leader.

Asked by host Jake Tapper about what kind of Speaker he expects McCarthy to be, Kinzinger said:

“If you had asked me five years ago, I would have said a pretty good one. Now, I think he has cut so many deals with bad people to get to this position that I think he’s not going to be a leader.”

“I think he’ll be completely hostage to kind of the extreme wings of the Republican Party,” the Illinois Republican predicted.

“And I frankly don’t think he’s going to last very long, Maybe he’ll prove me wrong but it’s sad to see a man that I think had so much potential just totally sell himself. He’s the one that resurrected Donald Trump. The second he went to Mar-a-Lago a week or two after Jan. 6, he resurrected Donald Trump politically. So he owns everything that Trump says now.”
