This is what Trump looks like when he’s pretty sure Kevin McCarthy is hiding Starbursts in his pants.

In the running contest to determine which Republican member of Congress is the BIGGEST, most embarrassing Daddy’s boy for Donald Trump, we have a new contender, and it is House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. You know him! He’s the one who got caught on tape during the campaign LOLing about how he thought Russia was paying Trump. FLASHBACK TO JUNE 15, 2016:

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

LOL SO FUNNY!

And we guess McCarthy is OK with that now, because apparently he buys Trump Starburst candies and makes his staff separate out the red and pink ones because Trump is racist against the other Starburst colors, and he presumably signs them “Love, Kevin. See you tonight, big boy?” This information comes from the Washington Post, because it’s just a very normal story about a president and his best boy in Congress. Read the story of their budding candygram romance:

President Trump and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) were alone in the presidential suite on Air Force One [sexy!!!!!! – Ed.], flying east toward Washington in early October, when the president reached for a handful of Starbursts, the square-shaped candy fruit chews.

But instead of unwrapping all the treats, the president was careful to pluck out and eat two flavors: cherry and strawberry, McCarthy noticed. [Kevin noticed!!!!!!!! – Ed.]

“We’re there, having a little dessert, and he offers me some,” McCarthy recalled in an interview. “Just the red and the pink. A bit later, a couple of his aides saw me with those colors and told me, ‘Those are the president’s favorites.’ ”

Days later, the No. 2 Republican in the House — known for his relentless cultivation of political alliances — bought a plentiful supply of Starbursts and asked a staffer to sort through the pile, placing only those two flavors in a jar. [SO THOUGHTFUL!!!!!!!!!! -Ed.] McCarthy made sure his name was on the side of the gift, which was delivered to a grinning Trump, according to a White House official. [You gotta sign the card, otherwise how is the Bachelor gonna ever gonna decide to give you the rose???????? – Ed.] […]

McCarthy said the gift was obvious, as Trump enjoys small gestures as well as grand ones. “He remembers everything,” McCarthy said. “Of course I put my name on the jar.”

This is so fucking embarrassing and if we were Kevin McCarthy we should not show our face on Capitol Hill today or ever again. On the other hand, if we were Nancy Pelosi, we would chase McCarthy around the Capitol every day for the foreseeable future, singing, “Kevin’s got a boyfriend! Kevin’s got a boyfriend!” and having giant bags of Starbursts delivered to his office, with notes attached that say “Go get him, stud!”

Also, Kevin McCarthy’s staffers, we need you to PLEASE TAKE NOTE that you can buy just the red and pink ones now. You don’t have to buy the big bag and deport all the colors the president doesn’t like. See?

WaPo reports that McCarthy really seems to enjoy his close relationship with Trump, getting to be the guy who LITERALLY sends Starbursts up the president’s leg (which sounds like a weird sex thing, not that there’s anything wrong with that). And we do see Trump and McCarthy together a lot! Indeed, when “Dicky Durbin” and Lindsey Graham went to the Oval last week to talk about immigration and “shitholes,” McCarthy was already there! (And so were Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who probably wish they had the Starburst idea first.) No word on what McCarthy (and Cotton and Perdue) were wearing that day, but we are going to guess very sexy negligees.

Kevin McCarthy got to go to Camp David with Trump this month and he got to have dinner with Trump in West Palm Beach this weekend, and also, when he has to tell Trump bad news about the upcoming midterm elections, he is nice enough to use pretty pictures instead of big words, which are hard for the president:

According to two people familiar with the presentation, Trump appreciated McCarthy’s use of pictures and charts rather than a memo. […] A second White House official said Trump may not have listened to others as well as he listened to McCarthy, which is why the tough love needed to come from him.

Ooh, TOUGH LOVE! Didn’t know the president was into that, but whatever!

WaPo explains that Trump refers to McCarthy as “My Kevin,” and that they started bonding late in the 2016 campaign, when they would talk on the phone late at night all the time, no YOU hang up first, no YOU hang up first, OK WE’LL BOTH HANG UP AT THE SAME TIME, oh no, neither of us hung up!

Awwww, young love!

    In 1968 California Senator George Murphy moved to a desk in the back row on the Republican side of the Senate Chamber. Senator Murphy had a sweet tooth and always kept candy in his desk. One day, he invited his colleagues to help themselves to the candy supply, and before long other senators began stocking the drawer with their favorite confections. Thanks to Senator Murphy, a new tradition—the “candy desk”—was born

    Republicans love song-and-dance men and candy.

    it’s worth mentioning that FavReds also has fruit punch and the weirdest, most awful watermelon flavors in it. the weird, awful watermelon is almost the same color as the strawberry one. that would be such a lovely surprise to give President Diaper Shits as it will be a while before I ever eat Starburst again. fuck you, WaPo for ruining those for me in the middle of primary season. thank goodness there are still PopRocks.

    “Candy is bad for you. You know that. But if you had to name the worst candy of all in terms of nutrition, what would you say? For our money, Starbursts are a good bet. Starbursts are about as far removed from a recognizable natural food as you can get. The first three ingredients are corn syrup, sugar and hydrogenated palm kernel oil. One pack of Starbursts delivers 240 calories, 34 grams of sugar and 4.5 grams of saturated fat. Combine that with the fact it also has zero grams of dietary fiber and no protein, and Starbursts rank as one of the worst things an athlete can put in his or her body.”

It wasn’t to be dicks or anything it was because their stage setup was so big and heavy and needed to be setup correctly or someone would get hurt or possibly killed. The candy was an easy way to see if the promoters read the rider. With Donny its just because he is a spoiled man baby.

  • in re: the Wonkagenda implication that this is a “green M&Ms” situation… The green M&Ms thing wasn’t just rock star hubris, it served a very important purpose. Bands get their rider for every show, and when you put something very specific like “a bowl of green M&Ms” on the rider, you just have to show up, see the bowl and know that they’ve taken care of that, so everything else is probably correct. If they got that wrong, it’s time to make sure that you got the proper amount of Jack Daniels and boxer shorts (boxer shorts show up on a weird number of riders for some reason…)

    • h4rr4r

      Sure, but M&Ms ruined that. You can now just order single colors.

      The idea was if you read that far, you probably setup the pyro and stage correctly.

    • That actually makes sense.

  • Grokenstein

    You don’t have to buy the big bag and deport all the colors the president doesn’t like. See?

    You must be joking. Knowing that the “wrong” colors were thrown in the garbage is the real pleasure Unprecedented Shithole takes from this!

    Which one doesn’t belong?
    The second one. Because she really is not a witch.

      A Silkwood shower. And that’s among other things.

  • Daniel Hooper

    Evan, come on. Do you really think a Republican would insert himself as a needless middleman while passing off any actual work involved to others just to get credit instead of doing the much simpler thing?

  • Shieldmaidenwannabe

    Kevin M is behaving like the child with an abusive father who offers himself up to that father in hopes Daddy Trump will bestow affection onto him. I do need a shower.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Nah. He’s hoping Trump will give him a recommendation when Daddy Putin takes over everything.

    “McCarthy said the gift was obvious, as Trump enjoys small gestures as well as grand ones. “He remembers everything,” McCarthy said. “Of course I put my name on the jar.”

    “Of course I put my name on the jar. I wanted to make sure he saw it just so he knows how oh so very much I love him.”

    If memory serves me correctly, wasn’t McCarthy the dimwit who let the cat out of the bag about Gowdy’s BENGHAZIIIIII! hearings being nothing but a blatant anti-Hillary political spectacle? It raises the inevitable question: Who’s dumber? Nunes or Starbucks pimp, McCarthy?

  • Ms. MLG on Maui

    Oh, man. Now Donnie and I have 2 things in common. We like red Starbursts and neither of us should be President.

      I don’t know, Ms. MLG. I’d vote for you. :)

    I think we can just leave this detail outside to ferment and fester in the sun for a long, long while.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Sorting through Starbursts for certain flavors so that a Senator can suck up to a fake President does not seem to be a priority use of federal resources, all I’m saying.

  • alpacapunchbowl

    We truly are living in the stupidest timeline. Kee-rist.
    And okay, the red ones are good, but am I the only one who likes the orange and yellow starburst?

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Yes. They are bad, and you should feel bad.

      • alpacapunchbowl

        More for me then!

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    OK, yes, McCarthy is the worst and all, but seriously, orange and yellow Starbursts suck.

  • Bebecca

    Just a little pre-Valentine’s day treat. And they’re red, republicans’ favorite color.

  • chicken thief

    Nunes is going to be soooo jealous, ya’ll! He’ll be like argh jealous and will rush right over to the White House SCIF to lick him some Donnie nads.

    BTW, does Trump have an “evin” fetish? I suspect he does what with Kevin and Devin elbowing the fuck out of each other to be the first to give the King his daily tongue bath.

  • chicken thief

    Watching The Donald struggle to unwrap the Starbursts with his miniature fingers must be a hoot.

    Trump’s not a racist, he’s a white supremacist. There’s a big difference, at least in his tiny mindlet.

    Just to review:

    McCarthy thinks that Rohrabacher is Russian agent and thinks that is funny.

    Ryan thinks so too but urges McCarthy to shut his yap because reasons.

    McCarthy kisses up to Russian kompro agent Trump.

  • PlutoAnimus

    There is an aggressive, complete lack of dignity in Trump and all who serve him.

    This appears to bother virtually no Republicans, whose lack of shame, maturity and reasonableness are just as aggressive and complete.

    Mr. McCarthy shouldn’t be pleased at being referred to by the Dotard as, “My Kevin.” Remember “My African American?”

    You know what he thinks of those people, right?

  • Deborah Ujevich

    I had a friend who, when her son was very little, had to separate all the Wilmas from the Flintstones vitamins because he was afraid that if he ate a Wilma, he’d turn into a girl. And no, this didn’t extend to the Pebbles, we are talking about a toddler. But that was seriously the first thing about which I thought when I saw this ridiculous story.

    • What there was no Betty? What kind of Flintstones merchandise was that if there was Betty? Sad.

      • Deborah Ujevich

        Are the Rubbles even represented? This is like 40 years ago. I goddamn KNEW this comment would motivate inspired dialogue!

        • You can’t have a truly adequate representation of the Flintstones without the Rubbles! Just another example of viscous exploitation by uncaring capitalists! I’m so glad I never wasted any of my hard earned moola on these inadequate disappointing pretenders!

          • Deborah Ujevich

            How do you think Mr Slate feels? EVEN DINO GOT REPRESENTATION.

          • And Mr. Slate employed both Fred and Barney! That’s communism for you! Communists did that to Mr. Slate.

  • I think I’ve figured out the whole Russia stealing an election thing. It ain’t Russia what stoled no election no way no how. It were the Repubes what PAID them dern Ruskies to steal the election fer them. It is part of their whole entire permanent majority thingee, you know like president-for-life.
