Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy hosted members of the birther movement in his office for a meeting in 2013. The birthers showed him a  video alleging then-President Barack Obama had forged documents related to his citizenship.

McCarthy said he only hosted the meeting because he wanted future generations to know he was an awful, awful person.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona denounced Donald Трамп’s attacks on the media and compared his inflammatory rhetoric to phrases used by Josef Stalin, the Soviet dictator.
