McCarthy scold Gaetz in GOP meeting:

McCarthy scolds Gaetz in GOP meeting on Thursday, asking the Republican from Florida to get down when he attempted to cut off McCarthy’s speech.

The conversation took place at a nearly four-hour meeting of House Republicans to discuss potential next steps. The conference is having difficulty deciding on a candidate for Speaker after Gaetz led a group of eight Republicans who sided with Democrats to remove McCarthy. Representative Jim Jordan was the conference’s choice for the position, however he has lost two floor votes to keep the gavel.

McCarthy once called out Gaetz by name when speaking at the microphones during the event, according to a person there. A second person in the room said that Gaetz got up to “kind of confront him and say something.”

According to the second source, McCarthy then fired back. McCarthy reportedly told Gaetz to “Sit your ass down,” which prompted Gaetz to “say something back.”

McCarthy claimed not to have screamed at Gaetz. “I was at the mic, I was speaking, and Matt Gaetz aimed to interrupt.” “I told him to take a seat.” He continued, “I think the entire conference yelled at him.” “Listen, I believe that right now the entire nation would yell at Matt Gaetz. Recall that we were in this predicament because of the crazy eight, led by Matt Gaetz and every single Democrat.

According to Geatz, McCarthy “was yielding to me since he had mentioned me”. Gaetz continued, “He gets his Irish up sometimes.” “I’m not a really sentimental individual. Since I work as a lawyer rather than a baker, I’m accustomed to hearing and seeing arguments presented without becoming agitated.

Geatz moves to oust McCarthy:

In recent weeks, Gaetz threatened to remove McCarthy from office if the speaker sided with Democrats to support a temporary budget plan. A showdown for the House to determine whether to oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy within 48 hours was set up when Matt Gaetz submitted a resolution Monday night(2 October, 23) to remove him from his leadership post. This sparked an anticipated intraparty conflict. Many House Republicans, who fear an internal civil war between McCarthy’s allies and others who have repeatedly pressed him with a range of demands, some of which have been unreasonable, have been worried by the drive to remove McCarthy.

There has never been a genuine attempt to oust the speaker before, and if successful, it may destabilize the House. After McCarthy failed to get enough Republican votes to pass a number of spending bills, Gaetz and a few hard-right Republicans threatened to remove him from his speakership if he continued to rely on Democratic support. This happened on Saturday. Because the minority party will determine whether McCarthy can retain his leadership position, the attempt to remove him may also force McCarthy and his friends to plot with Democrats, which will irritate the far right even more.

Kevin McCarthy statement:

Prior to Gaetz formally submitting the petition, McCarthy declared on Monday(2 Oct, 23) that he had not requested assistance from Democrats. He responded, “No, no, no, I haven’t talked to Democrats.” McCarthy’s closest partner, Patrick T. McHenry, advised him not to give Democrats anything in return for their support. Rather, he maintained that McCarthy should be kept in office because of a “functioning appropriations process” and a speaker who “treats the minority” party fairly. He faces difficulties in his life associated with personal matters. That’s alright, “said Kevin McCarthy. However, he claimed that “this is just confusing in the process” of continuing to support the government for a few weeks beyond that.

What happened after McCarthy has been Ousted:

  1. Firstly a temporary house Speaker is needed and Shortly after McCarthy was ousted, Patrick McHenry disclosed that his name was at the top of the list. As per House rules, McHenry will now act as a temporary substitute.
  2. The house is in new territory because this is the first time in American history that a speaker has been voted out of office. Since “the intention was for them to act in a temporary capacity while the House selected a new speaker,” it is unlikely that the acting speaker will have the same authority as the speaker.

Present Speaker:

Members of the House elected Mike Johnson a little known lawmaker as the 56th speaker of the House on October 25, 2023 ending the three-week journey for Republicans in the speakership.


McCarthy scolds Geatz in GOP meeting, for trying to interrupt McCarthy’s remarks. Subsequently, Geatz presents a motion to remove Speaker Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy is voted out. He had third-shortest speakership ever. The entire incident made the home unsettled. Patrick McHenry was at the top of the list when it came to selecting a temporary speaker for the house because the speaker had a lot of obligations. He was thus appointed temporary speaker of the house, but lately Mike Johnson was selected as the current speaker.
