Internet Trashes ‘Spineless’ Kevin McCarthy Over ‘Cowardly’ Response To Santos Indictment



Kevin McCarthy

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is being slammed over his “spineless” response to the indictment of Rep. George Santos (R-NY), who was arrested on 13 counts of wire fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds and lying to the House of Representatives.

Speaking with reporters after the indictment, McCarthy was given yet another chance to call for the controversial congressman to resign. He didn’t.

“I think in America, you’re innocent till proven guilty,” McCarthy said.

After reporters pressed him on whether it was time for Santos to leave Congress, McCarthy dismissed the idea.

“He will go through his time in trial and let’s find out how the outcome is,” he said.

Naturally, Twitter users weren’t impressed by McCarthy’s response and wasted no time to blast the California Republican as a “coward.”

Watch McCarthy’s remarks and some of the reactions below.
