Final week, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host laced into the pollster and puzzled why he “remained a fixture” in Republican politics.
TUCKER: Over the weekend, we received a call from a source who acknowledged that, in actuality, Frank Luntz and Kevin McCarthy are now not simply chums, they’re roommates. Kevin McCarthy lives in Luntz’s house in downtown Washington. That’s what we were instructed, and honestly, we did now not accept as true with it. The tip Republican within the Apartment lives with a Google lobbyist? Advance on. Even by the sleazy and unsuitable requirements of politics in Washington, that didn’t seem imaginable. Indubitably, it sounded adore a comic sage.
This morning, since we heard it we called to rep a examine with Kevin McCarthy’s spokeswoman, and after we raised this she all but chuckled at the advice, “No when he’s in Washington,” she instructed us, “Kevin McCarthy rents resort rooms, or sleeps in his location of enterprise within the Capitol. He completely isn’t living with Frank Luntz.” Enough, and that appeared logical to us, but we did press quite of bit because we received the tip from anyone legitimate and we impartial appropriate wished to worth certain. So the spokeswoman acknowledged she would salvage assist to us.
Two hours later, we received this newsletter. Quote: “Following up on our dialog from earlier in the present day. Resulting from the pandemic, McCarthy has rented a room in Washington at a good market label from Frank.”
