Charlie Kirk, the originator of Turning Point USA, criticized House Speaker Mike Johnson as a fraud during congressional spending negotiations.
Despite assuming the speakership in the wake of Kevin McCarthy’s tumultuous removal, Johnson has continued to face significant skepticism from the far right regarding his leadership prowess.
This skepticism has resurfaced in light of his most recent endeavors to avert a government closure.
On Sunday, following Johnson’s announcement of his support for a new spending agreement, a number of Republican members of Congress publicly denounced the terms of the deal and accused him of capitulating to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Kirk vehemently expressed his anger towards Johnson during his radio program, slamming the speaker’s “elitist garbage” and his stance on the federal spending budget.
“Cut the crap, man! Okay. I know a fraud when I see one. Cut it out! You couldn’t broker a deal. You start shaking like a leaf when you get in a room with Chuck Schumer… Whatever they want, they get.” Kirk proclaimed.
