On Wednesday afternoon, the United States House of Representatives voted for a Speaker for the sixth consecutive time, but the outcome was far from what had been expected. Kevin McCarthy suffered yet another embarrassing defeat and has now lost six votes since Tuesday and this comes following President Trump’s public endorsement of him.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw joined Guy Benshow Show during this tumultuous period to talk about the 20 Republicans who were challenging the GOP establishment, even going as far as calling them terrorists. In an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju he blamed them for their “notoriety over principle”, adding that the debates should have ended when McCarthy was nominated as Speaker by the House Republicans.

Crenshaw also took matters further during an interview with Fox & Friends accusing them of narcissism and threatened to tear down the team just to satisfy their own need for self-importance. He stated that if they believed their opinion was more important than anyone else’s, then they would keep on going regardless of any consequences it might bring to their party or nation in general.

Apart from that, Crenshaw also pointed out that the 20 GOP members have displayed a total disregard for democracy by not supporting McCarthy’s bid to become Speaker despite his impressive resume and qualifications for such a prominent position within Congress.

Furthermore, he argued that these individuals have placed their own interests ahead of those of their party or country as a whole which could be viewed as an abrogation of their constitutional responsibilities as members of Congress.

Check out the transcript below:

Crenshaw: It’s almost like, they’re being paid by Democrats to force us into a deal with Democrats. Like I don’t know what else to think at this point.

Guy Benson: One name that gets tossed around is Steve Scalise, whose well-liked member of leadership. It’s like, oh, well, you know what? If you gave him a shot instead of McCarthy, first of all, McCarthy would have to step aside for that to happen. Second of all, if it were Scalise, would any of this dynamic change at all? I don’t know.

Crenshaw: No, no, it would change. And we all know it wouldn’t change, which is why we can’t give in. And so those of us who are standing against this, we’re standing for principle. They are standing for notoriety. They’re standing for that extra news that because nobody ever cares about them and they’re frustrated by that, and they want that extra news that we know that we can’t give in to this because then they will always run the conference and they’ll just get another scalp and another scalp, whether it’s whether it’s Boehner or Paul Ryan or them McCarthy. Scalise would just be next and we all know it. We just can’t allow that to happen. That’s why those of us are saying like, look, you pushed us into this corner. So now we’re now we’re saying we won’t vote for anyone but McCarthy. That’s why we’re saying it, because we cannot let the terrorists win. That’s basically what’s happening. And I do have to go…

Guy Benson: When you’re talking to some of these guys and you say that you’re having these conversations. I know you’re trying to do this in good faith and you’re trying to maintain some level of respect. You also just call them terrorists, like I’m just trying to figure out. It just feels like the animosity is getting visceral and personal, which might make it even harder to get out of this quagmire.

Crenshaw: Yeah. Yes, sure is. I mean, it’s you know, it is obviously, obviously a figure of speech, but it’s you know, it is what it is. I mean, you’re holding a gun to our head. What do you want? You know, and I don’t want to hear. I’ve already I’ve already been attacked by them because I’ve used harsh language and I’m like, you started this fight. If you don’t want to get into the Octagon and get punched in the face and don’t get into the Octagon, that’s how I feel about it. I mean, this is because there’s no good faith here. The good faith has been lost. We keep talking about good faith. And then they want to play victim. No. No. So now I’m not going to apologize for harsh language. You guys know me. That’s how I am. I speak boldly. You know, and this is this is. This is terrorism tactics. It is what it is. You know, I’m not the first one to use that term, by the way. You know, it’s this is getting out of control.

  • Actually they are the new RINO’s and really are Democrats who have infiltrated the Republican side in name only in order to keep the Democrats in power. No matter what the majority of people try to do to get Democrats out of power they find cracks and crevices and Wessel their way in to stop any action against the mess they created over the last 24 months in this once sane and safe country.

    • I have made $18625 last month by w0rking 0nline from home in my part time only. Everybody can now get this j0b and start making dollars 0nline just by follow details here……….. richsalary78.blogspot.com

  • When someone like Crenshaw calls these 20 plus conservatives “terrorist” because they refuse to vote for “My Kevin”, you know damn well, you don’t want someone like Kevin McCarthy becoming our next speaker! These 20 Republicans do not want to settle for crumbs & neither do “We The People” who they represent! Come on Donald, step up to the plate & say you will run for speaker! Please try to save our country by doing so, otherwise we will continue to be on a horrible, nightmarish LOSING streak and there will be no looking back!

    • With all due to President Trump and his contributions, he is too polarizing to ever glean 218 votes. Better he leaves this contest alone.

      • Ernst, I think that the real problem with Trump not getting the 218 votes, is that we have a DEEP STATE full of Swamp creatures who would not allow him to get to 218! That in & of itself is the problem & why we will NEVER have the power in Congress as we will always be stuck with a RINO as speaker! Just my 2 cents!

  • Dan Crenshaw just identified himself as a true dim bulb and an unprincipled suck-up. He does not recognize character, courage or principles.

  • Yeah well, not that it matters what I think but: Crenshaw is the pot calling the kettle black.
    He is a traitor, a moron, a leftist communist. Out side of that… wait for it… H is blind in one eye and cant see out of the other 🙂 Not to mention he is spiritually dead and these RINOS need to be DRIVEN, not walked from office

  • McCarthy is a globalist and in bed with the WEF. The American people are fed up with the status quo and what we are witnessing is proof of just that. All those who are voting for McCarthy are not concerned about the will of the people which is what they were voted (installed) to do. By the way, Crenshaw what did YOU do with the stolen money you got from Sam Bankman Fried? General Flynn is standing behind the true patriotic 20 who are demanding a change. He, for one knows how the deep state operates.. first hand. We should all be doing the same.

    • Linda, AMEN to that! I’m totally with you & the 20 holdouts! They are the “true” and brave Patriots!

    • I believe the number is now 6 as the others have caved. I credit what’s left of the Freedom Caucus as they stand for America First and Linda here is absolutely tuned in. McCarthy can never be a strong leader. This whole mess is related to elections that we the people don’t have confidence that we have “lawfully elected leaders”.

  • Crenshaw is just another infiltrated pupil…like Justin Trudeau from the World Economic Forum. Stolen elections have consequences.

    • justin trudeau is not his real name. JT, the PM of Canada is placed in power by the Freemasons. His daddy was Fidel Castro, another Freemason. Tucker Carlson, reported on this…

  • I hope lib Dan Crenshaw gets it in the other eye.. he earns it by bein a SOLD OUT RINO. Crenshaw is protecting himself, might as well be Chinese, if he isn’t already… he’s of absolutely no ‘good’ use to ANYBODY. He can hang with the rest of em…
