Republicans could appear to be “on a different planet” right now with their warped priorities, MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin suggested on Sunday.
Instead of tackling a “bloated” and “urgent” to-do list on their return to Washington ― from debating additional funding for Ukraine to averting a government shutdown ― the party is focused on impeaching President Joe Biden, he argued.
And House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is to blame after he “sold his soul” to far-right Republicans such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in his bid to become the speaker.
“McCarthy enabled the rodeo but now doesn’t seem able to contain it,” said Mohyeldin.
