Social Media Mocks Kevin McCarthy’s Retirement From Congress

One person suggested George Santos might want to move to Bakersfield and run for McCarthy’s old seat.

The social media reaction to Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s decision to retire from Congress later this month is probably best described as a giant door slamming.

The former House Speaker announced his departure in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal but insisted, “No matter the odds, or personal cost, we did the right thing.”

Considering the reactions to the Republican lawmaker’s retirement on X, formerly known as Twitter, it doesn’t appear he will be missed.

But one person did lament McCarthy’s retirement, but only because he wasn’t very good at negotiating with President Joe Biden.
