House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) the leader of the Democrat Party in an interview this week after the 31-year-old lawmaker attended the elitist Met Gala event this week which sparked an ethics complaint against her over concerns about how or who paid for her to attend the event.
“I’m not quite sure as a member of Congress how you legally can go there,” McCarthy told Fox News. “You can’t accept a ticket so I’m not sure how that works.”
McCarthy said that she could have used campaign funds to pay for the event if the event was a fundraiser, which it wasn’t, so she would have to use personal funds.
“She’s the leader of the Democratic Party,” McCarthy said. “And think about it. She doesn’t call herself a Democrat. She calls herself a socialist Democrat.”
