Donald Trump ranted about getting “fucked” by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) because McCarthy initially blamed the ex-president for inciting the deadly U.S. Capitol riot, a new book claims.
Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa wrote in their upcoming Trump White House tell-all, “Peril,” about how Trump flipped out over McCarthy saying he bore responsibility for the violent incident.
“He’s not a good guy,” he added.
McCarthy has since reasserted himself as a staunch Trump apologist.
The book, scheduled for release on Sept. 21, also claims that Trump threatened to withhold friendship from then-Vice President Mike Pence over his refusal to disrupt the election certification process and the steps that Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley reportedly took to stop Trump from going “rogue” with nuclear weapons.
