Sen. Warren calls GOP House leader ‘a traitor’ while dismissing talk of presidential run

The Washington Examiner reported that Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) launched into a tirade against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) this weekend, accusing him of treason.

What’s more, the radical progressive senator also entered into a verbal clash over her re-election for 2024.   

Warren lashes out

According to the Examiner, Warren began with a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” during which she told host Dana Bash, “Kevin McCarthy is a liar and a traitor.”

The senator was reacting to The New York Times’ publication last week of leaked audio which was recorded immediately after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

At one point, McCarthy could be heard saying he had “had it” with the then-president, and said that Trump should immediately step down.

“I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign,” McCarthy said he planned to tell Trump over the phone.

Fox News reported on Friday that the former president and McCarthy had spoken since the audio’s release and that the pair were on good terms.

In her interview with Bash, Warren accused Republicans of wanting “to try to figure out how to make the 2020 election different instead of spending their energy on how it is that we go forward in order to build an economy, in order to make this country work better for the people who sent us to Washington.” She added, “Shame on Kevin McCarthy.”

Senator dismisses rumors

The Examiner stated that while appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Warren fended of suggestions that she is planning to mount a primary challenge

“I’m not running for president in 2024. I’m running for Senate. President Biden is running for reelection in 2024, and I’m supporting him,” the senator insisted.

“You can ask it any way you want, but I’m going to say the same thing,” she stressed. “President Biden is running in 2024, and I’m supporting him.”

The president will be just shy of his 82nd birthday on election day in 2024. This, combined with evidence of his continued mental decline, has led some observers to suggest that he may not be on the ballot again.
