(FeaturedNews.com) – Former NATO supreme allied commander for Europe and Retired Adm. James Stavridis recently referred to Kevin McCarthy being ousted from the Speaker’s office as a “great day” for Vladimir Putin, the Russian President. He added that throughout his life he has never seen such disarray in Washington’s relations with the rest of the world.
Stavridis claimed that he felt like they were “disconnected” and that on both sides there were extremists who refused to cooperate or reach an agreement.
During his appearance on WABC 770 AM’s “The Cats Roundtable” with John Catsimatidis, Stavridis provided his opinion regarding the recent historic ousting of McCarthy. Following McCarthy’s exit, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) took over as the temporary speaker.
The House is currently split on who would be an appropriate replacement for McCarthy. Stavridis argued that the whole House “debacle” which resulted in a Speaker being ousted for the first time in the country’s history was a “terrible thing.”
He also stated that he was concerned about the message this was sending to Vladimir Putin who watches the U.S. Congress infighting. He added that this will most likely result in Putin deciding to continue undermining the U.S. elections further.
He then claimed that Putin was going to worsen the division within both parties.
The recent escalation in the Israel-Palestine conflict has also resulted in an increased number of members calling for Washington, D.C., to reconvene.
