ICYMI: DNC Slams Chaotic House GOP with MAGA Clown Show Projection
October 24, 2023
In case you missed it, the DNC called out the MAGA House majority for dragging out their drama-filled speaker chaos for three weeks – even as new polling shows that the majority of Americans want House Republicans to get their act together and elect a speaker as soon as possible.
See coverage below …
Key Point: “The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will project a display near the U.S. Capitol on Monday night to bash House Republicans for going 20 days without a Speaker of the House. The graphic will project on the National Gallery of Art East Building at 8 p.m. and aims to call out ‘the chaotic House Republicans for dragging on their clown show instead of delivering for the American people,’ the DNC first told The Hill.
“Another graphic will display clown icons and ‘20 days without a Speaker.’
“‘Americans want strong and steady leadership, not this never-ending MAGA circus. Instead of honking at each other and jumping through hoops to find the most extreme speaker, House Republicans need to get their act together and join President Biden and Democrats who remain focused on delivering for hardworking families at home and standing up for our allies abroad. Enough with the GOP clown show,’ DNC spokesperson Sarafina Chitika said in a statement.”
Key Point: “The Democratic National Committee announced on Monday it would project a display near the Capitol building mocking Republicans for failing to elect a new House speaker. The projection is a short video noting the House has been without a speaker for 20 days. A number of animated clown faces fall in the background and then the text changes to: ‘welcome to the GOP clown show.’
“In the DNC’s announcement, they pointed to a USA Today/Suffolk University poll showing 67% of voters believe finding a new speaker is an urgent issue.”
Key Point: “The Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced Monday it would begin displaying a public projection on the side of the National Gallery of Art near the U.S. Capitol in an effort to highlight Republicans’ ‘20th straight day of paralyzing the People’s House.’
‘Welcome to the GOP clown show,’ the projection says as it cycles through photos of a clown, along with Reps. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who dropped his bid to become speaker last week.”
