GOP Representative Recalls The Exact Moment He Realized His Party Was Caving To Trump.


Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) says the GOP's capitulation to Donald Trump became clear to him when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy paid a visit to the ex-president at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to discuss strategy, just two weeks after blaming Trump for inciting the deadly U.S. Capitol riot.

McCarthy "went to Mar-a-Lago and charged the paddles and brought Trump back to life," Kinzinger said in an interview with The New York Times over the weekend.

“That’s when I realized, 'Oh, man, this is a problem,'” he explained.

“You come to understand that when the party and party leaders talk about unity, and in the same breath say that Donald Trump is the leader of the Republican Party, what they’re talking about isn’t unity,” Kinzinger, who is now one of his party’s most outspoken critics of the former president, continued.

He explained, "They're talking about capitulation."

“When you act like Jan. 6 was just whatever you want to make of it, that is capitulating to a false narrative and a dangerous attack on democracy,” Kinzinger added. “I will certainly talk to Kevin if he wants to, but I don’t see how we’ll ever come to terms on this until there is a recognition that we can’t be the party of insurgency.”
