Time and time again, Kevin McCarthy has been willing to debase himself to prove his loyalty to Donald Trump. He hasn't gotten much out of the deal except for regular embarrassment and less than a year as the Speaker of the House.
McCarthy recently announced that he will leave Congress before his term is over. But he's not ready to leave politics for good. In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, he said that he would be willing to serve in Donald Trump's cabinet.
The California lawmaker was asked by Robert Costa if he thinks Trump will be the nominee. "Yes," he answered. "In the Republican Party? Yes. And if Biden stays as the nominee for the Democrats, I believe Donald Trump will win. I believe the Republicans will gain more seats in the House and the Republicans will win the Senate."
Costa then queried, "Would you be willing to serve in a Trump cabinet?"
McCarthy responded, "In the right position. Look, if I’m the best person for the job. Yes. Look, I worked with President Trump on a lot of policies. We worked together to win the majority. But we also have a relationship where we’re very honest with one another."
