GOP accuses Dems of enjoying popcorn during House speakership drama

During Rep. Kat Cammack’s, R-Fla., speech to nominate McCarthy for the sixth ballot for speaker, she accused Democrats of drinking alcohol on the House floor and binging on popcorn.

“They want us divided. They want us to fight each other that much has been made clear by the popcorn and blankets and alcohol that is coming over there,” Cammack said.

Democrats immediately objected on the other side of the chamber — asking that her words be “taken down” or stricken from the record.
