What happened at the US House of Representatives meeting?

McCarthy spoke through the night on November 18 for a total of 8 hours and 32 minutes at the US House of Representatives meeting.

He spoke against President Joe Biden's $2trillion social policy and climate change spending bill and used his privilege as the House Speaker to speak for as long as he wanted.

The speech was scheduled to last 20 minutes but McCarthy started speaking at 8.38pm and concluded at 5.10am.

Republicans applauded McCarthy for his speech that attempted to delay Democrats' approval of the bill.

...Personally I didn’t think I could go this long,... McCarthy said toward the end of his speech.

...I know some of you are mad at me, think I spoke too long,” he said at one point. “But I’ve had enough. America has had enough....

However, Democrats did not approve of the lengthy speech, and the chairman of the intelligence committee, Representative Adam Schiff tweeted, ...If you took the worst orator in the world/Gave him the worst speech in the world.

...And made him read it for the longest time in the world. That would be a lot like listening to Kevin McCarthy tonight. Except, probably better....

On November 19, Democrats passed Biden's Build Back Better bill despite McCarthy's delay.

What did Kevin McCarthy previously say about Nancy Pelosi?

In early August 2021, McCarthy had been urged to resign after joking'd be hard not to hit Nancy Pelosi with a gavel... if he becomes House speaker.

The House minority leader made the comments at a dinner with Tennessee’s Republican congressional delegation.

He had been handed a gavel with the words ...Fire Pelosi... on it.

McCarthy is reported to have said, ...It will be hard not to hit her with it, but I will bang it down....

That led to calls for his resignation.

Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, 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....

McCarthy and Pelosi have already been engaged in an ongoing war of words.

Pelosi was blasted for branding McCarthy a ...moron... after he opposed a new mask mandate for vaccinated Americans.

The House speaker said on Wednesday, ...He's such a moron....

McCarthy had earlier called her a ...lame duck... for rejecting his GOP picks for the Capitol riot probe.

According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, President Biden is on board with Pelosi’s selection of Republicans to investigate the Capitol riots, according to The Hill. 

...His goal is the same goal that Speaker Pelosi has, which is to get to the bottom of what happened and prevent it from happening in the future,... Psaki said. 

...And he trusts her leadership to do exactly that....
