Speaker of the House vote memes and jokes: Kevin McCarthy gets roasted online amid 6 failed votes

Congress is a mess. But at least the memes are good.

When you’re not caught up on your political news, Republicans have shut down business in the House of Representatives because they can’t elect a speaker. The GOP holds a narrow majority in the House of Representatives, which usually means choosing a speaker is a predetermined formality. But amidst power struggles, there were six votes and we’re no closer to consensus. A handful of right-wing holdouts don’t want candidate Kevin McCarthy, who thwarted Republican plans. He’s nowhere near the required 218 votes to win a majority.

Heading into Thursday, there was no clear indication that a resolution was near. The Democrats obviously don’t have the votes to choose their nominee, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries. McCarthy doesn’t seem to have the voices and doesn’t move. Congress is one big shrug emoji right now.

But the jokes about it are pretty big. There’s a lot of glee from Democrats, especially considering McCarthy has been courting the very people who are now blocking his leadership. And the memes didn’t disappoint.

There were jokes about it being like the NFL playoffs.

Honestly, a simple screenshot of the stall is funny.

Former spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi is probably feeling pretty good right now, if we’re being honest.

It’s true, although sad, that our government basically works on dramas.

Chief twit Elon Musk even threw in his two cents, which, shockingly, sparked jokes.

Seriously, the memes went on and on.

On Thursday there was absolutely no news of any breakthrough. So… stay tuned for more memes of this mess.
