WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Rep. Kevin McCarthy spent much of the weekend doing yard work at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s house, several eyewitnesses report.
The Speaker of the House was seen mowing Greene’s lawn, as well as gathering leaves, twigs, and other yard detritus into a bag.
While McCarthy was mowing, Greene emerged from her house and appeared to tell him that he “missed a spot,” according to one onlooker.
At his Capitol office, McCarthy downplayed the scope of his weekend duties at Greene’s property.
“I was driving by Marjorie’s house and noticed that her front yard could use a little sprucing up,” he said. “This was a hundred per cent my idea and something I wanted to do.”
The Speaker refused to confirm or deny reports that he had also cleaned Greene’s gutters and oven.
