House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is facing widespread criticism for remarks he made about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

During a fundraising event before 1,400 people on Saturday, the top Republican in the House talked about what would happen if the Republicans regained control of the House. McCarthy said, “I want you to watch Nancy Pelosi hand me that gavel. It will be hard not to hit her with it.”

In response, Pelosi’s spokesperson said, “A threat of violence to someone who was a target of a #January6th assassination attempt from your fellow Trump supporters is irresponsible and disgusting.”
