Watch: Hannity, Boebert at Each Other’s Throats Over House Speaker Drama

On Wednesday, Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” and the claws came out as the duo discussed the House Speaker saga regarding Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Host Sean Hannity and Boebert shared a heated exchange when he adamantly stated that the congresswoman and her allies are applying a double standard when it comes to McCarthy securing 18 votes in order to win the position.

“Let me turn the tables, congresswoman,” he said. “Kevin McCarthy has 202–3 votes. Your side has 20. So, if I’m going to use your words, and your methodology, and your math, isn’t it time for you to pack it in and your side to pack it in, considering he has over 200 and you have 20?”

Boebert replied, “Sean, I understand the frustration, I promise you…”

“I’m not frustrated,” Hannity snapped back. “You didn’t answer any question. I’m not frustrated.”

“And we are hearing from many people who are still voting with Kevin McCarthy who are very supportive of what we’re doing,” Boebert explained. “And they’re cheering us on. So, there are more for us than there are against us. And they are waiting for Kevin to cave. You know, the American people are certainly frustrated.”

“You’re not answering my question,” Hannity quipped again. “Congresswoman, I’m frustrated by you not answering a direct question. You said to President Trump, you said earlier today that President Trump needs to tell Kevin McCarthy – you don’t have the votes.”


The House Freedom Caucus nominated Donalds for the position as speaker of the house after Republicans failed to elect McCarthy.

While nominating Donalds on Wednesday, Boebert described him as a man who “knows what tough times look like.”

“My colleagues and I have worked tirelessly for months to build consensus, to negotiate in good faith, to help unify our party on border security, energy security, debt reduction, term limits,” she declared. “Too often our efforts have fallen on deaf ears.”
