Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) told CNN that Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) elbowed him as the former House Speaker walked by after a House Republican conference meeting.
Burchett, one of the eight House Republicans who voted to remove McCarthy as Speaker, said the hit was a “clean shot to the kidneys.”
“I chased after him, of course!” Burchett commented.
“As I’ve stated many times, he’s a bully with $17 million and a security detail. He’s the type of guy that when you’re a kid would throw a rock over the fence and run home to hide behind his momma’s skirt,” he said.
