Representative Kevin McCarthy attempted to share a valid reason for rooming with pollster Frank Luntz but it failed.
Kevin McCarthy was a very good friend to his roommate Frank Luntz:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has said he moved into longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz’s lavish Washington penthouse apartment in January to care for Luntz after the pollster suffered a stroke while doing a focus group for the Los Angeles Times a full year earlier, in January of 2020. This peculiar claim about the Luntz-McCarthy roommate situation appears to leave many questions unanswered, however.
McCarthy told former Fox News host turned right-wing podcaster Megyn Kelly that Luntz “took a turn on his health like a year or so ago. … Frank has an apartment inside D.C., and I rented a room from him, and one of the reasons I did it is Frank had a stroke. You know Frank doesn’t have family … I wanted to make sure that he’d go on his walks, and he’d make sure to take care of his health.”
