CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): And here's how it works is you have a choice and they choose the easy path, and the easy path is just betray the voters, betray the country, and go the easy path. Just do what the regime tells you. The one that really bothered me, where there is no excuse, there is no hiding, is the FISA vote. And the — I'll be honest, the only redemption now is Mike Johnson has to resign. Not from a seat in Congress. Just resign as speaker. Step aside. And by the way, we have Marjorie Taylor Greene and Chip Roy coming. I think that there's a vacate vote coming. And I don't rejoice in that. I don't. It's gonna cause more chaos. We have to make sure that Hakeem Jeffries doesn't become speaker because that will be markably worse than what we have. It just will. That is a fact. It can get worse. The 20th century taught us it can get worse. If it's bad, it can get worse, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't criticize what you currently have. This has all the hallmarks of elite capture. He's been captured. It didn't take a lot of time. He's not one of us. He's not who he said he was. It's tragic.
