The Uniparty Swamp is alive and well after another stolen election. Nothing exemplifies this better than last night’s state dinner, the first for the Biden-Harris regime. Likely Republican Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy was there along with Hunter Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, and a slew of woke celebrities as they made their pitch to send more taxpayer dollars to Ukraine.
Congressman Matt Gaetz wasn’t impressed:
Tonight Kevin McCarthy had dinner with Hunter Biden at a state dinner with Macron to rally support for more US aid to Ukraine. He should not be Speaker.

According to Fox News:
The swanky black-tie event was to include a lavish dining selection of desserts and seafood on the menu, including butter-poached Maine lobster, beef with shallot marmalade, numerous types of American cheeses, orange chiffon cake, roasted, creme fraiche ice cream, and caviar.
Both presidents and their wives posed for photos and exchanged greetings as the guests arrived at the tent erected on the South Lawn of the White House, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The president’s son, Hunter Biden, who was in attendance, is under a federal investigation into his tax affairs. The investigation reached a critical stage in July, and federal prosecutors are considering charges against him in relation to foreign lobbying violations, tax crimes, false statements and more.
Last month, House Republican announced plans to launch an investigation into Hunter’s dealings. But that did not stop Republicans including House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy from attending the dinner. In fact, according to the Daily Mail, McCarthy brushed off a question about any awkwardness attending the dinner with Hunter.
“I’m at a dinner with my mom so I’m going to have a great time,” he told the publication.
The list of those in attendance included Vogue editor Anna Wintour and celebrities Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Garner, and Ariana DeBose.
McCarthy has been acting like the presumptive Speaker of the House ever since the GOP squeaked out a tiny majority in the midterm elections. Gaetz has been one of the few voices in the House who remains critical of McCarthy and adamantly opposes his bid.
