Speaker Interference | The Roundtable Ep. 152

Representative Kevin McCarthy has failed multiple times to win election as Speaker of the House. Is this a wake-up call for GOP leadership, or the wrong outlet for populist outrage? Meanwhile, the infamous social media influencer and former kickboxer, Andrew Tate, has been arrested under suspicion of rape and human trafficking. Plus: David French has joined the New York Times–almost too fitting an outcome after years of realignment on the intellectual Right. Spencer and Seth discuss.
