Tucker Carlson Rips RINO Dan Crenshaw After Calling Colleagues “Terrorists” for Not Voting McCarthy – Crenshaw Responds “Grow Thicker Skin”

The U.S. House voted for Speaker for the 6th time Wednesday afternoon.

According to Washington Post’s Dylan Wells, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX 2nd District) was “pissed” after GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suffered another humiliating loss for the sixth time. Crenshaw also told the 20 GOP members to “shut the f*ck up.”

On Wednesday, Crenshaw joined Guy Benshow Show, where he blasted the 20 Republicans who have opposed McCarthy’s bid for the speakership again.

During the interview, Crenshaw referred to the 20 Republicans challenging the establishment as “terrorists.”

Below is the transcript:

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.

Tucker Carlson slams RINO Dan Crenshaw for calling 20 GOP patriots “terrorists” for not voting for McCarthy.

“Yet today, Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, a surrogate for Kevin McCarthy, did in fact, he did what neocons always do. He labeled anyone he doesn’t like a terrorist,” Carlson said during his show Wednesday night.

“Dan Crenshaw went all the way, as neocons always do. He proceeded to go to CNN to call his political opponents enemies of the state looking for a little Soviet-style politics.”

“You may like Kevin McCarthy or not. Both are allowed. But no matter how you feel, you have to acknowledge, if you’re being honest that people who don’t like Kevin McCarthy have a reason for that. They have real concerns, real issues. But you’ll notice that Dan Crenshaw didn’t address any of those. None of them. Instead, he impugned their motives, their character, their intelligence, their moral standing,” Tucker continued.”


To which Crenshaw responded, “Unclutch your pearls. It’s a figure of speech. You can’t insult, slander, and hold everyone hostage with no way out – and not expect me to punch back. Grow thicker skin.”

Conservatives are now attacking him for his remarks.
