CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Byron Donalds, who has not self-selected a run for Speaker, has been nominated by one of his colleagues, Chip Roy. I find the whole thing to be rather ingenious by the House Freedom Caucus. Now, I don't like this affirmative action stuff. I find it nauseating where we have two Black people running – skin color means nothing. And Chip Roy, who I consider to be a friend and really smart, sort of contradicted himself there. It's like, we have two Black people running for Speaker of the House and we don't care about skin color and we care about the content of one's character.
