McCarthy tried to flip it back on Pelosi with the shirt, which he is selling via the Republican fundraising site WinRed. Writing on the shirt defined the noun as “a term coined by Nancy Pelosi referring to freedom-loving Americans who oppose mask mandates.”
“A GOP 1st – truth in advertising,” a representative for House Speaker told The Hill. Others agreed:
Kevin McCarthy is now selling bright red shirts with the word moron emblazed on them, you can’t make this stuff up, have a favorite Republican? Great gift idea

Oh, good one, Kevin. Pretty sure most people will see the large type as the wearer’s label and never read the small type. (p.s., Kevin – that’s why headlines are in large type.)

I can’t decide what’s more on brand; Rand Paul’s pandemic profiteering with a company called Gilead or Kevin McCarthy shilling those eponymously labeled Moron shirts to the magats.

As a lib, I’d like to say that it would truly own me so hard if every Republican bought these shirts and wore them around all the time. Please don’t do that. I’d be so mad about it.
