Insurrection Week is over, but they were still keeping the ball rolling over on MSNBC this week. Former Lincoln Project bigwig Steve Schmidt was a guest of Nicolle Wallace (as was Rep. Adam Schiff) and tried to put House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s role in the Capitol riot in proper perspective, naming McCarthy among the most villainous figures in American history and saying he should be put in a locked basement until he testifies before the January 6 select committee.

Democracy itself is on the line — if insurrectionist Republicans win the House in November, they’ll install Donald Trump as supreme leader and it will be the end of democracy in America.

Mediaite notes that Schmidt also said that McCarthy should be handcuffed and put in a locked basement until he testifies before the committee.

He left the Lincoln Project when the heat was on but he kept all of his cable news contributor gigs.

If anyone belongs locked in a basement, it’s President Biden until we can figure out what exactly is going on.
