Days After Congress Erupts in Chaos Over Speaker Vote – Elon Musk Shakes Things Up by Endorsing His Candidate for Speaker

What’s Happening:

Republicans in the House are proving they are very good… at spoiling a victory. After finally getting rid of Nancy Pelosi, twenty House Republicans are refusing to support the man everyone thought should become the next Speaker.

These Republicans are forcing Congress into a gridlock, with votes dragging out for days and days. Even Democrats are getting ticked off at the stalemate–urging Republicans to do what’s best for the country. But as some GOP play games with our government, Elon Musk weighs in on the controversy.

From Twitter:

Kevin McCarthy should be Speaker

Ever the outspoken figure, Elon Musk (who has dabbled in political commentary from time to time) said that Kevin McCarthy should become the next Speaker. Not a huge surprise, there. McCarthy has been the House Minority Leader for years. He fought to flip the House, pulling it out of Pelosi’s weathered fingers.

He even spent millions to help Republicans get elected, the same Republicans now refusing to support him. But Musk’s comment triggered backlash from users online–who posted furiously that he was wrong. So, he followed up his first tweet with a common-sense question.

From Twitter:

Subtle, but I am beginning to suspect opinions differ on this matter …

If not McCarthy, then seriously who?

That’s the question these 20 Republicans refuse to answer. They’ve put up the names of House Republicans who are already supporting McCarthy. It seems their refusal to support McCarthy is little more of a stunt to get attention.

But it is coming at the very worst time. As the year begins, we face continued inflation and mounting signs of a recession. Biden is not letting off the gas with his radical agenda. Republicans in the House are poised to hold Joe accountable and bring his son to justice.

All that is being spoiled, though, thanks to petty politicians who just want to make a name for themselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Elon Musk tweeted his support for Kevin McCarthy as the next Speaker of the House.
  • This comes as 20 Republicans refuse to vote for the man, leading to gridlock.
  • Musk called out critics on Twitter, demanding they have a serious alternative.
