GOP Home Chief runs and hides when requested if Joe Biden is the President-Elect

Although GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted Tuesday that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as the next president and vice president, not all Republicans are ready to accept the reality.

When asked if he recognized Biden as elected president, Republican Representative Kevin McCarthy ran away and hid from reporters.

"I just asked Kevin McCarthy, the minority chairman of the House of Representatives, if he was ready to acknowledge that Biden won the election and is the elected president," CNN's Manu Raju said on Twitter. "He walked into Pelosi's office in silence."

Rep. McCarthy was one of 126 GOP legislators who wanted to overthrow the election

It's shameful enough that so many Republican lawmakers, including Senator Mitch McConnell, have spent weeks dragging their feet instead of acknowledging what has long been clear: Joe Biden will be the 46th president.

But Rep. McCarthy went one step further, and joined 125 other Republican lawmakers in backing the Texas lawsuit that sought to reverse election results in four battlefield states.

This case was of course quickly laughed at by the US Supreme Court, even by Trump's hand-picked judges.

While the case was quickly dismissed by the Supreme Court, the names of all Republicans who supported Donald Trump's attempted coup – including Rep. McCarthy – will be in writing forever.

It's something he can never run away from.
