House Speaker Kevin McCarthy appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Margaret Brennan and had a difficult time avoiding the questions being asked of him without making it obvious that this was exactly what he was doing. Most other politicians are able to provide non-answers in a way that makes the interviewer and the audience believe they did answer the question, but McCarthy simply doesn’t have this political talent. One of the things the new House Speaker was asked about was the numerous George Santos scandals. Brennan called out McCarthy for not answering her questions about whether he should be ousted from committees and Congress generally. Brennan said, “so you're just not going to answer the question?” In response, McCarthy looked silly and said, “you don't get to question whether I answer it. You asked a question I'm trying to get through that.” McCarthy will have to work on his obfuscation abilities, or even better, start answering questions from the press honestly.
