Some simply mocked his appearance, with one user writing, "He looks like it Jon Lovitz played Kevin McCarthy on SNL." Another wrote, "Kevin McCarthy looks like he was in Cancun all week with Ted Cruz’s wife." A user wrote, "Why does Kevin McCarthy look so bloated and constipated??? Guess he’s been spending too much time trump."



 



 

However, many wondered whether McCarthy was merely trying to influence Trump, who reportedly now views the GOP minority leader with disdain. Fox News reported that Trump is not pleased with McCarthy criticizing Trump's role in the failed insurrection attempt on January 6. The outlet also notes that McCarthy's recent visit to Trump at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida did little to ease tension.

According to the report, Trump believes that McCarthy launched a personal attack against him by telling fellow Republicans of their phone call during the Capitol riots. Trump reportedly told the congressman during the call, "Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election theft than you are."

The call became a specific point of contention when Democrats pushed to hear testimony from Republican Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler who spoke about the conversation after speaking with McCarthy. According to Herrera, McCarthy reached out to Trump directly with the hope that he would direct his supporters to end the riots. However, Trump reportedly made comments to McCarthy, which if true, would reinforce notions that Trump sided with the insurrectionists.

According to Fox News, Trump plans to campaign for primary challengers to Republicans who opposed him on impeachment, including Liz Cheney. The report states, "In the view of Trump's inner circle, McCarthy will have no choice but to support his Republican incumbents. If the Trump-backed House contenders prevail -- and it's hardly a lock that they would win in the general election -- they would feel no obligation to back McCarthy as their leader."

As such, many viewers wondered whether McCarthy's look during his appearance on Fox News played into his relationship with Trump. One user wrote, "Botox. Trump likes all his honeys to get face work. And he just was reminded what Trump is holding over him." Another tweeted, "Is @GOPLeader using #Trump foundation to give him the orange glow to keep his master happy." A user tweeted, "WTF happened to @kevinomccarthy? It's like Trump had him stuffed and painted matching orange."
